Namibia November

We are officially hitting the last few weeks of 2016. Boy oh boy has it been an eventful year. November ,you arrived amidst Diwali and Halloween rather like a big colourful bang unexpected but so welcome. There are now 2 more “work ” weeks left and I personally can not wait for some much needed time out and time to work on the blog.
This part of the year is rather crazy busy with year end exams and tons of marking. All this has left my immune system rather weak and after two visits to the doctor I am still not better. This part of the year is rather stressful so it is a reminder to me to look after me.

October Highlights

  1. The Good Food and Wine Show was as always a great weekend for all Durban foodies. The show this year had a new look.Loved catching up with old and new foodie friends as well as eating delicious food.
  2. Diwali, after the month long fast of Purtassi it was time to celebrate. A weekend of family time and yet again lots of delicious sweet treats.
  3. I started a 3 month blogging challenge and wrote my longest post ever. Have you read it ? My post was shared by two rather large South African Tourism accounts on social media which made this lil blogger rather happy.
  4. Ae Dil Hai Muskiel the much anticipated Bollywood release happened. Set in my favourite city of London this tale of Romance has an amazing soundtrack.

  5. Interesting! I had no idea that Namibia was colonised by the German people. Africa is still on my bucket list, your post definitely fuelled my wanderlust ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. November whizzed past before I could actually experience it. And soon it is going to be 2017!!! your post is kind of wakeup call for me. Need to make some good resolutions now.

  7. Did you post something on the “Good Food and Wine Show”? I bet that would be a very popular item, especially with good photos.

  8. Wow, you’ve been very busy lady and we are glad to read that you are enjoying it! Few more days and 2016 will bid goodbye – we still have chance to party with 2016!
    PS. At least Namibia doesn’t experience flooding (am I right?).

  9. I would love to visit Namibia, I know almost nothing about the country, expect the fact that it’s covered in desert. It’s interesting to know that they have desert elephants. I find it funny that Oktoberfest is actually one of their most important events of the year. I wouldn’t have imagined it.

  10. I couldn’t even experience the month like the usual ones. It just flew. I had so much to do as my best friend was getting married. It is great to read this post. Kinda wake-up call for the new year’s eve.

  11. I love your straightforward, honest goals. I think I will need to do this for myself. Definitely adds to the clarity of tasks for the month. Thanks for the idea ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Very interesting facts! Namibia is one of those unknown places that I don’t know much about, but I wouldn’t mind paying a visit just to see the Desert Elephants! ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Yes, making time for yourself is so important. I’ve been trying to get myself to read more frequently too but the constant travel x work life has have me putting it on the back burner. I have 3 books that I’ve bought that I still haven’t read too!

  14. First of all, Congratulations!!! that your post has been shared by two prominent tourism accounts, your hard efforts getting paid off. And even I’m struggling with the kind of goals you shared.

  15. I just googled Fish River Canyon and it is beautiful. Good on you for writing a note to November and making a pledge, the time has gone so fast but I think it’s awesome that you’ve created some goals! Good luck.

  16. Can’t believe how times flies and we’re just three weeks before Christmas! I hope you’d have had achieved your November goals and Happy December gal!
