East Coast Road Trip – Cairns to Balgal

We had two weeks and a roughly penciled plan…

Kruger: In Two Shakes of a Lion’s Tail

I’ve spent the last week re-writing ‘War and Peace’. My version detailed a gripping journey through the beautiful Kruger National Park. I described every animal with an artists precision and relived my journey by describing every bump in the road.
