Background: Recent extracts from my travel journal taken at the end of each day whilst on holiday in Zambia, my home country. Enjoy!

Day Eleven:

Our final day! And how quickly it had come round. Today, much like the first, was riddled with tales of mild frustration mostly due to poor customer services. However, we were determined to not let these get in the way of an enjoyable last day.

The trip now seemed way too short and we weren’t able to see everyone we’d hoped to. One or two reunions almost happened, but sadly fell though at the last. Still, it was nice to touch base with the place I call “home-home.”

Pics whilst out and about…


A government building or embassy, I guess..

Quite possibly my favourite version of VW Golf.. maybe it’s the ‘wow factor’ whenever I saw one as a kid?

Cool looking office block..

Close to Embassy Park where the country’s late presidents are all burried..

Independence Avenue.. Quite a fitting name as Zambia has enjoyed (to this point) 52 years of independence and relative peace. Praying it may long continue.

Outside State House – The Presidents crib..

And finally, our last bit of African sunset before heading back to England. What an incredible trip, seeing family and friends, enjoying some sunshine, and touching base with home.

Following on from this photo journal series on Zambia, I hope to delve more into the world of series writing. I feel it offers greater scope for regular writing, reflecting and opinion pieces.

Has it been at all insightful or interesting? Please let me know in the comments. All feedback appreciated.

Stay tuned for days 12 and 13; the eventful, and rather stressful return journey to England.

God bless x
