Postcards from Madagascar

Like all great travel adventures, my time in Madagascar has been a paradox, seemingly standing still at times whilst racing away at others.  It’s hard to believe my month here ends tomorrow.  My mind is overflowing with memories to hold onto and stories to share – and my laptop is overflowing with photographs I’ve not yet had time to process.

I arrived in the country with high expectations and I leave with them exceeded.  The wildlife was unique, the landscape diverse, the culture fascinating and the people warm, friendly and incredibly welcoming.

So as I wind down from my time in Madagascar and get ready for my three months volunteering in Ethiopia, I leave you with some of the photographs I have processed from this trip, a prelude to more images and stories I hope to share over the coming month.
