You’ll have to forgive tonight’s selection, gentle readers. It’s more nature porn than environmental treatise, but that’s because I’m suffering from a terrible case of itchy feet. For the last couple of days, I’ve been daydreaming about last summer’s trip to Africa, so tonight we’ll be watching episode eight of African Wild: Okavango.
The three days we spent in the Okavango Delta were some of the best of my life, and they brought to light — in the most fantastic way imaginable — the importance of water for survival.
(As a side note: if you travel to Africa, by all means, go tent camping with the folks at Intrepid Travel, and ask for Gerrit as a tour leader. You’ll support the local economy, see incredible wildlife, and bond like mad with your tourmates. I’m talkin’ to you, Toilet Hippo survivors.)
What places in the world — that you’ve visited or only dreamed about — have made an impact on the way you look at the environment?
