IMG_2314My parents brought me up hiking and enjoying nature. Saturdays was reserved for toting our picnic, including a yummy red currant pie my mom used to make,  into some utterly remote spot in the mountains. My parents would spread a few blankets, take out their books and read, while us 4 siblings would build little dams, moss houses and the likes.

Very fond memories make me so want to share this with my kids. Here in South Africa we have so much amazing nature available, but so much less safe spots! Apart from deadly snakes like the black mamba, predators and criminals who kill for a few bucks, mostly the land belongs to somebody who fenced it in.
