Souvenirs

We wandered around this shop of old and new copper pieces and didn't buy a thing. We rarely buy souvenirs when we travel. But I do seem to collect some health horror stories! You can read the full post here

Cantina aperta

Unplanned and so much fun! Found ourselves at Cantina Aperta today. It's a wine weekend across Italy, with Abruzzese wineries opening their cellars for guided visits, tastings and cellar tours. What a fantastic way to explore Abruzzo's best wines. Cin cin!

Masai Mara

A perfect #tbt to four years ago, on this Africa Day. We were extending birthday celebrations then and had travelled down from Nairobi to the Mara triangle, for a long weekend. Our game drive guide told us that more and more animals were crossing the border, just before the wildebeest migration. Amazing!

The luminous continent

We have been lucky spend so many years living, working and travelling in countries across the continent. This is not my image but it sums up how I feel. Happy Africa Day

To travel is to see, to return is to talk ~ African Proverb

This VIP is 88 today. I owe the thrill of my first flight and my introduction to international travel to my darling dad. He had entertained me countless times with his RAF stories of life in Hyderabad, Muscat and Bahrain, places which all sounded so exotic and exciting to me as a child. Read the full post here

What do you remember, about your first international trip?

Ayam gila

I'm far too full of fabulous food and fantastic wine to compose anything eloquent. But a challenge is a challenge. So, languages. Others will be able to relate to attempts to learn the language of the place you find yourself in. Together for us that was Kikaonde in the markets of the N.W Province of Zambia. The women running the market stalls laughed at us and quickly broke our confidence. And of course, everyone spoke English anyway. Our next move was to Japan. I learned how to tell people I'm vegetarian but would still get fish flakes (bonita) on every dish. By the time that we moved to UAE, we didn't really bother with much Arabic, just the ocassional "shukran" or "Habibi". In Nairobi, we did try with Kiswahili, though our lessons with colleagues soon morphed into nonsense ("Habari Tangawezi Mutoto") or slang "cheesy". Our biggest effort with a language so far has been learning Bahasa Indonesian over three years in Jakarta. We went to lessons most weeks. By the end of three years we were both stringing together whole sentences in Bahasa Indonesian and having that 'la la la la la' moment! We'd cracked it! And then we left! 😂
And where does the chicken fit in? At least after three years of trying to learn a bit of Bahasa Indonesian, I left with the nickname 'ayam gila' (crazy chicken) 🐔

What's your experience of trying to learn a language, where you are living?
