Why the Backroads of Africa?
I feel no fear, no pain, no vain perplexity,
I feel deep, heartfelt joy that closely clings,
Lessons of love and earnest piety,
From all created things.
I feel, in every midge that hums,
Life, fugitive and infinite,
And suddenly the world becomes,
A part of me and I of it.
When I close my eyes, I Imagine a wilderness where the animals of Africa roam freely, where communities benefit from nature and support her conservation. I dream of a life without borders, beyond frontiers, open to the wonders around us. So much to explore, so much to learn, each day an adventure.
Maybe one day the Africa of my dreams will become reality, but until then, I continuously look for those special places that allow me to wonder. Places of natural beauty and incredible diversity. Places of happiness, tragedy, history, magic, ancient wisdom and spritituality. Places where I can leave behind my programmed mindset and open my thoughts to things and people I do not know, and perhaps will never understand. To step out of my comfort zone and explore the unknown with mind, body and soul. To learn and to grow, I travel, on the Backroads of Africa.
