Some folks out there…or at least our moms, might be asking, “Why no blogs lately? They used to be so reliable…” Well, over the past month we have had rather dismal internet access. The fact that we’ve enjoyed omni-present wi-fi virtually everywhere else we’ve traveled has really spoiled us. Well, South Africa brought us down to earth. Our housesitting clients summed it up best when they said that South Africa looks like a modern country (and it does!), but really it’s a developing country and you have to give it some slack. Yep, definitely part of Brian’s 70% rule for Africa coming into play here!
We have missed the process of writing, editing, posting and best of all, getting your feedback! Seriously, we get such a thrill when folks comment on our blogs. *Love It* This last month has made us realize just how much we enjoy blogging and let me just say we miss it terribly. We do try to post a daily photo or two to Facebook and Instagram even when we can’t blog, but it’s just not the same.
In 2 days we leave for Mongolia and we’re guaranteed to not have blogging capabilities there! Perhaps some amount of wi-fi for our first couple days in Ulan Bataar, but not for two weeks after that. Oh my gosh, I can hardly believe we are going to Mongolia. (MONGOLIA!!) Then we’re off to Bali — can I get a “Woot! Woot!” — where we may/may not have wi-fi.
***Yes, that’s right, we made a snap decision last week and booked ourselves a trip to Indonesian sun and snorkeling to help us recover from our aching, horse-riding bums! Bring on the beaches, crystal clear water and seeing coral three times a day for 9 days! Oooh-la-la! ***
Then, finally, in late September, we should be back online for most of the rest of our trip. Soooooo….I guess the whole point of this is to let everyone know we’re still here! Plus, we want to warn everyone that Radio Silence will be in effect for yet another month or so. Don’t worry…we’ll be back! For now? Gotta learn how to ride a horse!!
