Almost Home… 1


As I sit by the pool sipping on my reverse osmosis purified water, I can’t help but to reflect on the last 2 months. They have gone by in a flash.

I have visited seven world heritage sites, added eight new countries to my list, swam with great white sharks, jumped with the Maasi warriors, watched lions and leopards sun themselves in the Serengeti, had two brushes with death and was evacuated during my attempt to climb the world’s highest free standing mountain. The list is even larger, but you get the picture. I have done and seen a lot and I hope you have enjoyed following me on my journey.

Over 100 Gigabytes in more than 5,000 RAW images and 3 hours of HD video on my 5D Mark II. You could say that I will be busy right up until wedding season starts at the end of April.

I have been asked by many people to blog about my other travels so I will be blogging about some of my favourite places in the coming weeks.

I am planning a major upgrade to the website and have some great new ideas for 2010, so make sure to stay tuned!

Thanks for all your support and keep a look out for andrewpateras.com version 2.0…

    Hey Man:
    Sorry to hear you didn’t make Killi (did Steve?).
    Hope your trip home went well.
    My Gorilla trek was awesome!
