Karnak - Egypt (2018)
This shot of hubby and our two eldest sons makes my knees knock, and nervous laugher is imminent! Another hilarious memory from our summer road trip. 🌳
We stopped at Illawarra Treetop Adventures to stretch our legs with a 1.5km walk through the rainforest... 50 metres above the rainforest floor! It seemed like a good idea at the time, until we got exactly half way through the walk and realised how absolutely terrified Freddie was. The poor boy hadn't even been able to speak up to tell us he was hating every minute! His death grip on the side of the metal walkway gave him away in the end (along with the slightly green tint to his skin!)
After lots of nervous laughter, attempts at reassurance and tension in our legs like you wouldn't believe, we agreed to stay on solid ground for the rest of our trip! 👍🏼
As nervous as we were walking our babies across a wobbly platform cantilevered across the bottomless rainforest, this is a memory we will laugh about for years. (I'm pretty sure this memory will be burnt into Freddie's mind forever more! 😬) These are the days that stand out from the rest and take on legendary status as the years pass. ❓
When was the last time you did something out of the ordinary? Something that you will laugh and talk about with your kids for years to come?

Facts About Imbalu
Ever heard about the Imbalu circumcision ritual? Imbalu refers to the Bagisu ritual of male circumcision. It is a practice every male Gisu is supposed to undergo. There are lots of interesting facts that you probably did not know about this ritual and here we present them to you. 🔷 The Imbalu tradition is a rite of passage from boyhood to manhood, as well as payment of a cultural debt.
🔷 The major event is held at the Mutoto grounds. At these grounds stand eight grass-thatched houses representing every county in the Bugisu sub-region.
🔷The Umukuukha, the Cultural head of the Bamasaba, presides over the ceremony.
🔶Ceremony happens once every two years in the month of August.
🔶The entire process of cutting takes 10-30 seconds.
🔶The candidates are given a herb called intinyi to make them brave as this is one of the attributes which they are supposed to exhibit as they pass to manhood.
🔶 During this event, ambushes are laid out on men who have been dodging circumcision and these are humiliated and forcefully circumcised. The men are usually reported by their wives or relatives. #culture #culturaltourism #culturaltour #uganda #africandance #travelblogger #travels
