Motorcycle Touring in Namibia

Posted by on Oct 11, 2014 in Africa, Namibia | Comments Off on Motorcycle Touring in Namibia

Well, my dream finally came true and I was able to ride a motorcycle (a BMW F650 GS) in Namibia. I joined up with a great group of people on a Renedian Adventures motorcycle safari (www.Renedian.com) and met delightful people, rode great roads, and ate way too much good food. I now have new friends and several kms of riding in Africa under my belt.   Please follow and like...

Off the Farm for a Week

Posted by on Oct 4, 2014 in Africa, Namibia | Comments Off on Off the Farm for a Week

I’ve been on Okambara for the past month and have loved it, but it’s time for a little change. I’m in Windhoek getting supplies, catching up with new friends and recharging.   Of course, I’m never too far from a motorcycle. Next up:   Yes, a motorcycle tour! 🙂 Please follow and like...

Up close and personal with the elephants

Posted by on Sep 19, 2014 in Africa, Namibia | Comments Off on Up close and personal with the elephants

One of the things we do on Okambara is observe the elephants’ feeding behaviors in order to determine what a sustainable number of elephants are for a given size of farm. Some days we can see them easily, and other days they are difficult to see. (It’s absolutely amazing to me how one can “lose” a herd of 9 elephants on a farm!) The other amazing thing is how QUIET they can be. Sure, they trumpet at each other every once in a while, but normally they are near-silent. Pretty amazing given their size.   So this is normally what we see:   But we came around the corner and saw this:     Here’s our encounter the other day:   Please follow and like...

  Yes, I’m totally serious. This was our view from the back of the truck as we drove to our position to start the vehicle game count. I’m the luckiest girl alive! Please follow and like...

Back in Namibia

I’ve been back in Namibia for over a month now, and it’s so different than last year! Same lovely landscape, yet they had a good rainy season so the trees have leaves and the acacia are blooming right now. It’s really beautiful here and it’s good to be back!     Please follow and like...

2014: My Year of Gratitude

Posted by on Dec 31, 2013 in Namibia | Comments Off on 2014: My Year of Gratitude

I watched the following video about three weeks before this posted. I was so moved by the video, that I decided to dedicate my 2014 to GRATITUDE. I want to see how being grateful, as a daily mindful practice, changes the landscape of my life. If you read my blog in 2013 you know I had a heck of a year: my sister Alison’s accident, Biosphere Expeditions in the Azores, remodeling my house in Connecticut, Biosphere Expeditions in Africa (Namibia), and the move to California. I hope you enjoy the video below by Louie Schwartzberg, and that 2014 is a year of things you can be grateful for. Blessings for 2014, MAG (If the video doesn’t show up here’s the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=gXDMoiEkyuQ)   Please follow and like...
