(This is my three-year old niece being cute on a recent visit to Brisbane.)

I’m off to Africa today!

I’m doing this Intrepid Travel tour, going to ten different countries over 60 days.  At the end of this trip I will have achieved my (completely arbitrary) goal of having visited as many countries as I am years old.  I imagine this will be extremely satisfying until my birthday next year when I shall have to start planning more holidays to keep up!

I’ve organised for posts to keep going up while I am away, and when I return (and have recovered somewhat) I’ll start posting some of the awesome photos I hope to take.
