  1. Love the video! WOW! 😀

    And your little questionaire was a delightful way to start the morning off. Thanks! 🙂

  2. Amanda, what a treat! The post was a fun read, but the video was just spectacular…what a thrill that would be to encounter a herd of elephants so close….WOW! Thanks for sharing that with us 🙂 🙂

  3. I love ur video, especially, the baby elephants are so cute!

  4. OMG Coco is adorable! And a very, very belated happy birthday to your son.

  5. Great video. Enjoyed your answers to the survey, too. Thank you for sharing. I really did enjoy watching the video of South Africa! Have a great day, Amanda.

  6. It’s fun to read the answers to these quizzes. I’m working on a theme so if I’m going to do these ‘fun’ blogs, I may have to start another blog.

    BUT! I loved your video. You were so good about just being still with the video. It gives the sensation of sitting right there in the jeep. What a huge herd. I kept watching the ears…they certainly were accepting of your presence. I was in Madikwe in October 2009 so your video created all sorts of memories, pulls and tugs. I feel such a deep longing when I see a video like that. (I lived in Africa for at least one other lifetime). How on earth does someone, like you, live away from Africa after growing up in that incredible world?

    • Good question my friend, I am lucky to be able to go back every single year but a piece of my heart will always be in Africa. I always have a longing in my heart but life sometimes takes us on roads we never thought of….I loved your comment, thanks so much for sharing and it’s wonderful to have you here. Hope you have a great day. x
