One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Some great traveling experiences...
Trip of 3 days to the highest point of Lesotho on horse back. About 8 hours on a horse every day, sleeping in a mud hut on the ground and living on peanut butter sandwiches roasted above a cowdung fire :) I've not eaten much peanut butter anymore since..
Working at the horse farm in Wild coast, Eastern Cape. Beach rides and the most amazing nature around every single day!
Trip in south Morocco through the mountains to the edge of the Sahara. Very hot!
