My First Safari: Timothy (age 7)

My First Safari: Timothy (age 7)

Last Saturday, Jordan, Ben, and I went on safari at the Majete Wildlife Reserve in Chikwawa, Malawi. We brought our friend Idana (who drove for us) and his son Timothy, who is seven years old. It was Timothy's first safari and I gave him my iPhone so he could take pictures. The results were awesome! Take a look!

Moni nonse! Did you know that Chichewa, the national language of Malawi, is spoken by over 12 million people across four countries? I've been taking private Chichewa lessons for a month now and I wanted to do a post to talk about my progress and share some of my favorite words and phrases! For friends and family coming to visit, start studying!! 

WINGS & WINDS

WINGS & WINDS

On our way back from the wedding in Hamilton, NY, we made two super fun stops! First, we had some chicken wings in Buffalo at the Anchor Bar, the original home of the buffalo chicken wing! From there we drove up to Niagara Falls State Park to see the Falls! It was totally worth it to be able to get out of the car, stretch out legs, and see something new on our roadtrip adventure!

Whenever we feel like we need to get out of South Bend for a while (which is often), one of our favorite places to spend the day adventuring is St. Jospeh, Michigan. Roughly 40 minutes north of South Bend, St. Jospeh is right on the shore of Lake Michigan. It's a cute little town with a main street full of cafes, boutique shops, antique stores, and art galleries.
