Long term life change, The beginning

Long Term Life Change

So here we are, 40 something, and quickly getting over the grind. Our son is turning 17 this year and has started developing applications and games. Mostly self-taught at the moment, much like the way he taught himself how to play guitar. Youtube! Well maybe its time for us to learn something new too and do something different.

Balloon Safari – Magalies River Valley

Majestic hot air Ballons

So a little while ago we went on a little trip in a hot air balloon. A Balloon Safari! Seriously you have to do this even if it is just once, and I have a feeling that if you do it once. You will want to do it again. Even if you are scared of heights, gas and fire. There are few things that are as calm and as peaceful as gently drifting along a beautiful landscape with no noise. Other than the roar of the twin burners once in a while. The early morning chill still in the air. Trust me on this one.

Exploring the Gap

Beware, changes are coming!
