Wow, Sophie, you are prolific with everything you do! These are inspiring pictures and you have shared your travel experiences every time with your writings!
I must find some more photographs to add to this page!
What a well-travelled and adventurous person you are, Sophie. Your writings and photographs are indeed inspiring; thank you for sharing them with us.
As you can imagine, I have thousands of travel photos. I shall have to begin writing up my diaries soon. Which voyage interested you most?
Picking just one is very tricky as there isn’t one voyage that doesn’t look extremely interesting. I think, for me it would be a toss-up between going down the Nile, Ethiopia or the Victoria Falls.
Ethiopia is amazing
I can well believe it. It is somewhere I have always wanted to visit.
Going down the Nile in February was relaxing. It might be uncrowded if you booked for this coming Feb. We enjoyed the steam boat but it would be wonderful to sail.
Egypt is another place that has long fascinated me. I have a mini-library on Egyptology and, as I think you know, I love steamboats! I will seriously consider next February.
