A Dream!

I wonder how many of us have taken the time to think about something special that they would like to do in their life? A dream that might take years of planning - it could be a holiday, or a vocation! My dream is to own a Bed & Breakfast - it has always been my dream and we came quite close to realising it nearly 4 years ago. However, it was not meant to be, but that doesn't mean it won't happen.

You know how much we love the bush and visiting the Kruger National Park? Well, I came across someone whose dream it was to spend a year in the Park and she's currently living out her dream! She writes a daily account of her experiences and I have become quite addicted to hearing about her time. We heard about Martie on 702 and I have started reading her blog every day. I would like for you to share her experiences - especially my overseas friends. She writes with such passion - you almost feel as though you are there - looking at the animals with the hot African sun shining down on you!

Welcome to the world of "blogging" Martie! I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do! You're sure going to make a lot of new friends!

That's interesting - I went to her blog .. she posts EVERY day!!!
I have had several dreams over the years but the one that always comes up on top is to travel to all corners of the world!! Will I ever see the dream .. I don't think so! (and I don't want to be old and bent if and when I do!)
My 60's are creeping up way, way, way too quickly !!!

You know I think about that alot and I as an avid dressage rider and horse lover, I would love to have my own barn, rescue the racehorses that are sent to slaughter illegally and rehab them.....Teach them new skills like dressage and jumping....just like my baby is. Now all I need to do is win the lottery.......

This life is too short not to go after the things you want! I pray that you find the opportunity to realize your dream Janet!

I will go and check out her blog just now. My dream at the moment is to become a professional photographer. I would love to do travel and nature photos for a living one day. Something I won't loose sight off and will practise every day if I get the chance.
