DSC06973Hello and welcome to Africa! You’re almost here! I know all of you have been traveling a long way, but we’re going to have an amazing time when you get here! I have even planned a traditional African spit braai (just a fancy word for a BBQ) for you all tomorrow to welcome you properly to Africa.

Now who is writing this amazing blog?? Well, allow me to introduce myself. I’m Tara and I will be the team leader for the next two weeks. I have been with ROV for a year now and have loved every minute of it. I love travelling and am very passionate about seeing the world and helping out communities in need, as I can imagine is true for you all as well. ROV has made a huge impact on my life and I am excited for this experience to do the same for you. Other than travelling, I also love skiing, hiking, biking and playing sports. I am also quite the human jukebox and love to sing. I have taken it upon myself to learn all the words to every Disney song out there as well as a wide repertoire of random songs. I love puns and bad jokes, I’m obsessed with coffee and recently my favorite flavor ice cream is pistachio. Basically, I’m a weirdo but if nothing else, I’ll be here for your entertainment! I can’t wait for you all to arrive. I’m so excited to meet you!

Now get here already so we can have some fun! I will be updating this blog everyday, so all the family and friends can keep up with our activities. If for any reason it’s not updated straight away, don’t fret! Internet out in the game park tends to be a bit hard to come by, but I will definitely do our absolute best to update it everyday. Also, please feel free to comment on the blogs and join in on the fun. We have special comment reading time in the morning, so please make sure to make it as embarrassing as possible for your loved one. 😉 Thanks for reading, and we’re so looking forward to making a difference and having a blast in Africa!!

Yours truly,

Team Leader Tara
