Gerry and my favourite African bird, the lilac breasted roller
Well it's official. Tickets have been booked and we are off on our first overseas family holiday.
Seems so funny saying that. As a kid, the only place I ever went was Caloundra for family holidays. We would always go just before or after school holidays to save a little money on peak season rates.
So our destination: Zimbabawe! My husband was born and raised there and moved to Brisbane (by himself) to study in the early 1990's. His mum lives with us on our property and his Dad still works in Zimbabwe on various mines.
His parents are selling their family home, so Perry wanted our children to see where he grew up and meet Betty, who has been with his family since he was a tiny tot.
Feels like I've got a million things to do before we leave in two weeks time. I've got a trade fair to attend and suitcases to pack. Better get moving!
