You’ve got an adventurous spirit which, for the most part, is wonderful.  It’s the reason why you’ve already had so many exciting and unique experiences.  But that bold part of your personality also means that you impulsively jump into things too fast - with people who are interesting and fascinating on the outside, but who often turn out to be unreliable or flaky once you get to know them

Africa is mystic; it is wild; it is a sweltering inferno; it is a photographer's paradise, a hunter's Valhalla, an escapist's Utopia. It is what you will, and it withstands all interpretations. It is the last vestige of a dead world or the cradle of a shiny new one. To a lot of people, as to myself, it is just 'home.' It is all these things but one thing - it is never dull.

From the time I arrived in British east Africa at the indifferent age of four and went through the barefoot state of early youth hunting wild pig with the Nandi, later training race-horses for a living, and still later scouting Tanganyika and the waterless bush country between the Tana and Athi Rivers, by aeroplane, for elephant, I remained so happily provincial I was unable to discuss boredom of being alive with any intelligence until I had gone to London and lived there a year. Boredom, like hookworm is endemic.
