An Anticipated Silence...

Hello stranger.

I feel like I haven't been blogging much of late. I've been mostly relying on old photos, although thankfully I have those in abundance, and posts which have sat idle in my drafts for a while. I apologise, you deserve better as a faithful reader but I am struggling a little in this new country. It shouldn't be new - I have been here for nearly two months after all. But things are harder here, I'm tired more easily and just the day to day living requires more energy. I don't think that is reflective of Ghana per se but rather the weariness with which I am approaching embracing a new culture. I am enjoying it, but enjoying it just requires more effort somehow.

However I am thrilled to say that there will be a silence on this blog for a while, for very good reasons. I am going on safari!

This is exciting for me, naturally, as I will be adventuring across Zambia, Bostwana and Namibia with my father and brother. I will sit in the devil pool atop of Victoria Falls, I will be camping in the middle of the Kalahari desert, I will be seeing all manner of wonderful animals, and I will be filming and photographing everything. Thus I hope to bring fresh content to you all, finally.

I have been thinking so much recently about so many complicated things, that is why I'm here after all. Learning, and approaching things from a wholly different perspective is the name of the study abroad game. But for ten days I will just be doing, and I can't tell you how much I need the break.

So forgive me for my absence, I hope you will come back when I do. I promise that I am working on my photography skills and maybe, just maybe, there will be some photographs of giraffes with a dreamily blurred background. Well a girl can dream.


  1. Have an amazing time! :-)

  2. I have enjoyed reading a handful of the posts on your blog. You write beautifully, Liza! I am imagining your voice reading them, too. Looking forward to reading what you have to say about Africa and other future writings.

    1. Thank you Emily! I'm so excited to show you my posts of our adventures :)
