In 2012 I met 8 very special ladies from Norway. Sonja B. Gustavsen is the mother of a good friend of mine (Eirik Gustavsen) and on his recommendation these feisty Viking ladies came to conquer South Africa and specifically Kruger National Park. From the moment they arrived they revelled in everything they saw and did, happy to be sharing it all with their lifelong friends. Till this day they still meet once a month, calling themselves the African Ladies, and they talk about their time in Africa and discuss new adventures. I want to share this photo with you that was sent to me by Sonja – it shows the African Ladies in pink T-shirts with an African logo on a Viking Cruiseliner on its way to Iceland! Their sense of adventure is incredibly awesome. Their understanding of what friendship is all about undoubtedly inspiring. And on top of all that, I think the African Ladies are super cool too!!
