What I’m missing!

Tuesday, 17 July 2012

My recent trip to Portugal reminded me so much of home – the sandy beaches, the dry mountainous landscape and the laid back pace of life. It got both of us feeling more than a little homesick and missing the things we lack in our daily slog here in London. The aspect that I miss most about living in South Africa is the daily interaction with animals. It’s gotten to the point where I actually freak dog walkers in the park out by running after their dogs and talking in weird voices to them. Yes, I am one of Those People. Of course I know that living in the city and travelling constantly does not make a good environment for a dog, so in the meantime, I will continue to get my fix by stalking dogs in the park!

Are you lucky enough to be surrounded by cute, fluffy animals or do you live in the city like me?

  1. i live in a city, too, and whenever i'm around dogs i try to appreciate it since i can't get one any time soon, either.

  2. I love going to the park and watch so many cute dogs passing by. But, my dream is to pet a tiger! Love that first photo!

  3. It's a bit of a menagerie at our house... three kids, a couple of cats, and a large fluffy golden retriever (she's my baby!). My kids are all animal mad, and even though we have our own, they still like to chase other dogs around the park - you'd fit in fine here :) x
