The Finish Line…


The finish line is now truly in sight… I’ve just booked my final trip for the quest.

Mum and I will be going to Kenya!

Now, there are a couple of ways this is particularly exciting… One – I’m going to Kenya for a safari, which is super exciting in and of itself. Two – if you’ve read about the purpose of this quest, you’ll know that it came about thanks to a conversation with me and my dad, who died before he could complete it. Well, dad was actually born in Kenya. So, I knew that my K would always be there.

Last year I realised that I could arrange things so that K became my final letter, finishing the quest where, in some sense, it all began.

Of course, almost as exciting is the fact that, following this trip, I will have officially finished the quest. And I can write the final chapter of my book. And then I can start choosing my holidays for reasons other than the alphabet!

We’re going with a company called Safari&Beach, who have put together an incredible itinerary for us, and I honestly can’t wait to get out there!
