East Africa: The Kids

Ahh, children with all their innocence and curiosity. They’re the ones who bridge the gap between the rest of us. I think this deserves a reblog.

Uncle Spike's Adventures

Travelling is, or was for a long time to me anyway, a way of life, and then became one of the primary drivers of my ‘career days’. I would happily walk to/from work, take a home snack every day rather than spend cash at the works cafeteria, go out at night perhaps once or maybe twice a year, and generally only replace items of clothing at the point that the old woman with the shopping trolley full of bags of ‘reclaimed’ stuff would look at me sideways… 

To see the world’s monuments, castles, temples, and pyramids is always an amazing adventure, sure, but it’s the locals that make travelling such a heart-warming experience, and the spontaneity of the friendship proffered by the kids of Africa beats the lot.

  1. Many thanks for the reblog Lisa. Quite agree about how they bridge the gap between us. As one of my other followers (Linda) said, “The world should be like children…always. But we grow up and forget. How terribly sad that is”. After all the years have passed from a certain adventure, it’s often memories of the kids that stay with me the most 😀
