The Next Adventure ...
Well, its been a very busy year as we took on the management of a 34-bed Motor Lodge in the middle of a major renovation ... but we can see the end! We finish our contract here at the end of March and it has enabled us to do what we love for the next 6 months ... travel to remote places and visit some of our wonderful sponsored children. Please follow this blog to keep up-to-date on our adventures and tales along the way, and follow our other blog www.thebestbakehouse.org to see what's happening in Uganda at the Bakehouse that many of you have supported.
