Short break

I feel very fortunate to spend everyday doing exactly what I love to do, and to be able to call this my job.  I wake up everyday, thoroughly excited to get to work.  I remind myself constantly of how lucky I am to be in this position and not to let a moment go by that is taken for granted.  I hope everyone has been able to experience even a small part of what I get to see everyday.  This part of Africa is too beautiful not to be shared.

The past 10 weeks of filming has flown by, with countless hours and days of sitting and waiting and waiting…and waiting.  But all that is worth it for the raw moments of unfiltered beauty that the African bush can offer.   I’m so pleased to have been able to experience all this alongside my amazing girlfriend and researcher, Rae.  I can't wait to see what the next 20 weeks of filming will bring (July-December).  Until then, a few weeks of R&R back home.  Cheers everyone.
