It’s nearly time to board…

Good day friends

What can I say, I am sitting at the airport waiting to board.  My heart is racing, and I can’t wait.

Our flight is delayed by two and a half hours. But I don’t care anymore as long as I get to Dallas by tomorrow afternoon. We are flying with Delta Airlines and our first stop is Atlanta then from Atlanta to Dallas Lovefield…. Total flight 19 hours

Our flights

The boys and Zanny came to say goodbye, and we had a nice dinner at the Spur. My brother, Aran, and Morgan, also came to say goodbye.

Two Days and counting…

Good day friends

Oh my word, the waiting is killing me. I know I am not supposed to wish time to pass, but I can’t help it.

I thought that it would not be so bad if we talked to each other daily via WhatsApp Videochat. But to be honest, talking to him and not being able to give him a hug or be there for him in person is more challenging than I anticipated.

I keep reminding myself that all good things come to those who wait. My life is about to go in a new direction, one I never saw coming. Everybody tells me to sit back and enjoy the journey, and that is precisely what I will do.

Four Days and counting…

Good day friends

We fly in four days, and I will see Christo again in five days. I am really missing him a lot.

I am all packed and ready to go. All that I still need to pack are the few things we need to buy for the house to take with us, but that goes in a separate suitcase.

Six Days and counting…

Good day friends

We fly in six days and in seven days, I will see Christo again. I am super excited.

Christo is also sick, and the universe saw it fit that he would not get a load this weekend. Now he can focus on recovering.

I am still panicking about my choice of clothing for this two-month holiday. Today I will unpack everything and rethink my choice of clothing.

My list of places I want to photograph is growing, but I am still working on it. I think it will increase when I am traveling with Christo.

I have been watching YouTube videos of Photographers in Texas, but they are not as informative as the UK Photographers. Maybe I am just looking at the wrong channels.

Seven Days…

Good day friends

Feeling like crap today, but the fact that I am flying to Christo in seven days helps.
I am all packed, well I think so anyway. There is only one thing bothering me. Did I pack the right clothes?

On our video calls, Christo is wearing short sleeve T-Shirts, and he says it is warm during the day and very cold at night. I have packed as if I am going to Antarctica. I did pack two pairs of shorts and four T-Shirts. Will that be enough, or must I throw in a dress or two?

I am glad I started packing early, my suitcase weighs 18kg, and I am entitled to 23kg according to Delta Airlines. The only problem is there is no space left. I had to transfer a thick sweater, jeans, and socks to my hand luggage.

New Menu called Texas Adventures

Good day friends

At first, I thought of running two separate sites, one for my photography and one for my adventures in the USA. But I decided against it.

After much thought, I made an extra menu heading called Texas Adventures. Here I will talk about my experiences and also post some photos. Don’t worry. I will also share some pictures on my blog with a link to the Post in Texas Adventures.

If you want to join us on our travel adventures through Texas, please click on Texas Adventures in the Menu.

New Beginnings

Good day everyone

Sorry for being so quiet. So much has happened since my last post.

December is a difficult month for me. As you all know Dad loved Christmas and everywhere I turn I am reminded of him. I put on a brave face but inside its a different story.

I have very exciting news though, I am going to America in January 2023.

Byers, Texas to be exact, and I am staying with someone very special to me. End of March 2023, I will be returning to South Africa and leave again the middle August 2023 for another three months.

Visa approved for 10 Years

I am very excited about this new chapter in my life. Feeling grateful and blessed. I never stopped believing that when two people are meant to be together they will end up together. No matter how many years go by. But more on this in a later post….

I still have a To-do list as long as an airport runway that needs to be done before I leave.

All different the different photography platforms and Apps have been installed on my laptop.

The photos for my flower book are backed up on an external hard drive. Although I won’t be able to edit it until I have sorted out my edit program. In the mean time I can still do my research and select the photos I want to use.

I had to set my camera settings to RAW and Jpg so that I can edit the jpg files so long for social media and my website.

It is going to be winter and the beginning of Spring in Texas when I am there. It makes packing easier.

Since I got my Visa I have been making lists and putting things in groups to be packed.

I am looking forward too this new beginning as a landscape and travel photographer and making myriads of new memories.

I will be back soon with some more updates on what is happening in my life….

Remember if you can dream it you can do it. Dreams do come true you must just keep believing…

Love

Coreen
