IN OUR TRAVELERS' WORDS: THE WILLIAM FAMILY ON SAFARI IN KENYA

By Deborah Olsen | May 30

Deborah Olsen is Bushtracks Print and Content Marketing Manager. Although she’s lived and traveled abroad, Deborah finds most of her travel inspiration at home around the dinner table, where French, Swedish, and Danish family members and international winemaking friends routinely fuel her interest in the world beyond with vivid insider accounts of off-the-beaten path places. In telling the Bushtracks story, and sharing Bushtracks remarkable adventures, Deborah hopes to ignite the same spark of wanderlust in others. Her journey to Bushtracks marketing has wound an itinerant path from her education at Duke University, the University of Paris, and the University of Washington, to a decade of marketing in the wireless telecommunications industry, and four years with Bushtracks, where she daily learns something new and wonderful about the natural world she loves exploring in her free time.

I took this photo (above) of my son Paul, his wife and my grandchildren in Kenya."

"Paul (above) had said to me prior to this trip that since I had been to Africa many times, he wanted to at least go there once with me so I could share the experience with him and his family. This safari allowed us to share quality family time and learn and enjoy the values of other cultures that can only be encountered in the Serengeti.

For their family, this was a first exposure to this part of the world. It combined the beautiful, the exotic, the wild, and the authentic aspects of Africa, but was not overly challenging or uncomfortable."
