Round the world in 193 Days - The Kelly Lang Experience travel blog

And that's that happens when you don't check what gear you're in...

Ah, restaurant. I will never forget the final glass of port we...

I suppose I should not be too surprised that Jess has such an amazing family since he’s a pretty cool dude after all, but still, I have to say I was blown away by the Diamond family experience. From start to finish, their generosity was overwhelming and their hospitality boundless. They actively sought to include me in every activity, dining experience, and discussion that took place for the entire month. Just including me in the dining experiences alone was a bold maneuver. More than anybody, Jess’s mom was ringleader. She has got to be one of the most kind and caring people I have met in some time. She reminded me how powerful a thing it is to be in the company of someone with a truly good heart and how, even if you are doing a pretty good job, you could always do more to enrich the lives of those around you. Joey told me that in all the years they had been married, he had never seen Angie act in a way that was anything but selfless. I may only have a month to reference, but I agree wholeheartedly.

Joey was joking with me yesterday and told me that when I left South Africa I was going to be sad enough to shed some tears. I have to say that the splendor and warmth of this place will probably bring me to the brink. It will be like leaving home and leaving a family (my human family of the Diamonds and my animal family of great whites, cheetahs, tigers and elephants). Still I must press on. Dominican Republic, here I come.
