Title: Why I choose to live in Africa.
Post by: Charlie Brown on June 27, 2013, 07:54:45 pm
Thought I would start a thread for members to show their unique Africa photographs. Anything goes, but it must be Africa.

Here is a start.........only in Africa!

I do have a choice, but I love Africa, born and raised here and no particular desire to leave.

Beautiful photo of the giraffes, and the bottom photo of the 2 donkeys. ;)

Yes, Africa rates highly when it comes to riding your bike. I also choose to live here, for as long as we are being allowed at least. :xxbah:

Doros Crater - Damaraland - Namibia.  Africa might not love me but I love her.

I envy every man that has not been to Africa, for he has so much to look forward too.

"I believe there is no sickness of the heart too great it cannot be cured by a dose of Africa. Families must go there to learn why they belong together on this earth, adolescents to discover humility, lovers to plumb old but untried wells of passion, honeymooners to seal marriages with a shared sense of bafflement, those shopworn with life to find a tonic for futility, the aged to recognize a symmetry to twilight.
I know this all sounds a bit much, but if I have ever seen magic, it has been in Africa."
John Heminway, African Journeys

I love this! I've been very fortunate to have traveled to many continents, but nowhere do I get that "at home" feeling that Africa gives me.

Couldn't agree more. I'm still traveling the world and working over seas as i have to but every time i get back home to Africa it just feels right,its Home and always will be. Something about Africa that once its in your veins you never get it out.

I was just thinking today why do we need expensive cars and houses in Africa, the real Africa feeling is to ride with an old bakkie or Land Rover and live close to nature. Maybe I am just getting old .....

Yip, the "more mature" I have become the more I have come to realise that I've wasted so much money and time acquiring "nice to have" things. I would have been far wealthier, and therefore been able to retire long ago (and not only at 50  ;D), if I'd just been a little more frugal. I'm not talking a drastic cut in lifestyle, just small changes here and there.

...but of course this would not apply to a new bike - that would be taking it too far  :biggrin:
