Every now and again, life gets incredibly frustrating and I feel a deep need to escape from the daily grind. This past week has turned out to be one of those times.
To get away from the complexities of our modern societies where protocols and rules seem to govern everything and common sense seems a forgotten concept.
The total innocence and uncomplicated intent of nature is what appeals to me about national parks anywhere in the world. I find the exploring the landscapes, finding plants and watching wild animals go about their business, to be wonderfully relaxing and de-stressing.
I have a delightful T Shirt which sports a zebra with its stripes coming unravelled. The caption reads “Feeling stressed? Unwind in Kruger National Park”!
Sadly, I can’t get to Kruger for a dose of this wonderful medicine at present, so this photographic tribute will need to suffice. If you are feeling a tad stressed as well, I hope you too will enjoy my selection of images.
