travel: zimbabwe

Just wanted to write a quick note to say that I'm back from my amazing African adventure, and to thank those that wrote for your good wishes.

As I'm writing about the holiday for a travel feature, I can't give too much away about the trip other than to say that I have fallen in love with Africa. I didn't expect it to happen because, generally, I prefer cities over the countryside. But Africa is such a majestic place that it was impossible for me not to feel deeply about the place.

And, also, I wanted to make a special mention about Zimbabwe. It is a country that has received a lot of bad press in recent years but rest-assured I felt completely safe my entire time there. The spirit of the people was wonderful - I encourage you to travel there because it is worth the trip. And, yes, I travelled with
&Beyond and not only is the company and its sustainable mission completely inspiring but the service was absolutely faultless.

I will be posting again later this week.

Welcome back. We are traveling back to Zim in two weeks time.
I'm so glad you loved the place and you fell in love with &Beyond. They are an amazing company.
You will have to visit India with them next time.

Thanks, everyone. It's good to be back, even though I'd jump on a plane in a minute if I had the chance.

So glad you had a great time & good to hear the positive of Zimbabwe, I have so many great stories from my uncle who lived there, (well when it was Known as Rodisha then) & bad when they had to flee 22 years ago. They still miss Africa & would have loved to have stayed if it had stayed a strong country. Its sad to think the wealth it had, I would love to visit & to do a Safari would be a dream!!!
