There is something so amazing about getting up with the sun, bright and early. All you need is a cup of coffee & a rusk soaking in this magical view! ☕️🇿🇦☀️ •

{Safari Tips}
This is the thing about safaris, not all safaris are created equal. And a safari in Africa will set a ridiculously high bar for any other safaris that come after. 
So for those with a bucket list item to visit Africa one day and go on safari, here are some tips to (hopefully) make it a truly unique experience. 
1- Plan your safari for the dry season. Much higher chances to see the animals then
. 
2- If possible, choose a national park with a varied landscape i.e. Savannah, Bush, Forest, Water body, etc. You'll get much more out of your safari
. 
3- Make sure you're up early and on your way to the drive before sunrise. The animals come out to drink and hunt before the sun hits its peak or as it sets because the heat is much bearable then.
. 
4- Plan for both dawn and dusk safaris to increase your chances of seeing more game.
And if you can, stay in the park for at least 2 days because each day brings something wonderfully different.
. 
5- Be kind to your game rangers. And always follow their instructions. 
They know where all the good stuff is and want you to enjoy the experience. If you build a rapport with them, they'll make your safari unforgettable.
Trust me
.
6- Have low expectations.
(Advice from my first safari)
Know that animal sightings during safaris are controlled by Mother Nature. The animals' movements aren't restricted within the parks so they aren't in one predictable place for tourists to find like in a zoo. And some days despite the guides' best efforts, there's just nothing to see
.
7- NEVER EVER try to interact with the animals no matter how adorable they might look. They are wild instinctual animals. 
I read about some lunatic tourist who once walked right up to a full grown Elephant Bull in one of the parks regardless of her rangers panicked warning because she believed she had some magical mind link to the animal. Luckily no one was hurt because of her foolishness.
Don't be that tourist!
.

Also, sunblock and hats for y'all who burn easily. The African equatorial sun is not forgiving during the dry season.

It's a hard life living in a desert.  To keep the animals away from the main well, the water is piped downhill to a trough just for them.  But first, the water is pulled up from a 280ft well, with the aid of donkeys and the hides of goats fashioned into a bucket. Water and feed both scare in the desert. *

Whenever I travel, I find beauty in admiring art wherever I am. Not only are we, humans, a masterpiece from the Creator, but we have been endowed with an unspeakable ability to create art with everything we see, feel, touch or even experience.
.
.
.

Art is something I started appreciating when I traveled to #dominica, and now I am grateful that I can see it everywhere. I can feel it everywhere. I can connect with it anywhere, in more forms than I ever thought possible. .
.
.
The saying was right. Traveling truly awakens all senses.

This is my entry shot for #natgeo100contest, hope it connects with people. 🙂 🇪🇹 .
.
I took this special photo from the Abuna Yemata Church in Tigray, Ethiopia after hiking up a mountain for 2 hours, which involved climbing 50 metres up a vertical cliff and then slowly crossing a narrow ledge above a 250 metre drop. 
There, awaited a young priest dressed in all white robes...as if he knew I was coming. He took us into a cave cut through the side of a mountain and led us into one of the rock cut out churches that were sprinkled across the Tigray mountains.
After speaking to him for a few minutes, I found out his name was Haile Selassie named after the most famous Ethiopian Emperor who ruled Ethiopia from 1930 to 1974.
This, Haile Selassie chose the path to become a monk at a very young age, he told us that he knew since he was young that he wanted to serve God.
Whilst talking to him, he showed us an Orthodox Christian religious book from the 5th century and the text inside the book was not in Amharic the national language of Ethiopia, but an ancient language that only the priests knew how to read and translate; the young priest stated that the language was very old and said the name of the language was called Ge’ez.
I had never seen the writing before, but it was beautiful. 
But recently whilst showing the photo to someone(@susandurietz), they pointed out that the writing looked similar to Assyrian characters...I found this analysation very intriguing and interesting.
So I looked through my notes that I wrote down when I spoke to Haile Selassie and my notes subsequently said ‘Abuna Yemata is from Syria’ and I googled Abuna Yemata and he was one of the nine saints that visited Ethiopia from Syria during the 5th century.

And that there was an ‘aha moment’ for me, where the ancient world and our information filled Instagram world of connectivity intertwined into one.
