“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” –Mark Jenkins

Friday 24th August - The Journey Home

The early start, the long drive to the airport and the thought of all those children we would be missing didn’t provide the best start to the day. But thoughts of home, loved ones and a bank holiday weekend camping with friends soon chased the blues away and after successfully getting through the airport checks and a quick shop for gifts, we cheered ourselves up in the Karibuni lounge at Entebbe with freshly squeezed orange juice, fruit salads and Earl grey tea – what a treat!

Our thoughts were distracted on the way home by watching a few really good films and before we knew it, empty wine bottles filled the seat pockets and once again Caroline and I were giggling our way through the skies. What a cracking end to an incredible trip. (Sadly the charcoal stove didn’t make it in one piece, but with any luck it’s repairable.)
