Life in Laos through the lens of a diplomatic wife raising twin toddlers.
Thoughts of rising up into the sky in a hot air balloon while the sun rises over the Skeleton Coast of Namibia is needed today to lighten my sodden mood. With our twins in preschool for the first time this winter, I have been through revolving doors of one cold after another for months now. Today is especially worse with one of the kids falling sick as well. Anyway…I hope these pictures will elevate your mood, too.
We were outside of Swakopmund, Namibia, a city at the southern tip of the Skeleton Coast. I had seen a documentary once about elephants who live along this section of the coastline that are known to frolic in the ocean (another image that just lifts my mood even more). It was always a dream to try and see these elephants (nearly impossible), so I tried to get as close as I could to at least to see where the Namib Desert meets the Atlantic Ocean. Watching the entire process of inflating the balloon, piling in, feeling like I was on top of the world, jumping out after an unnerving landing, and coming together to pack up the balloon was so much fun! It left our entire group giddy from the experience as you can see below.
