While we always visit family and friends while in Europe but some friendships had slipped between our fingers over time. This can happen for a variety of reasons, passage of time, losing touch when moving or being a poor communicator, like me. While you would think that into today’s modern connected world it would be easy to keep on touch, our friendships predate this and not everyone is on Facebook and some surnames change with time. As we were planning to spend time in both the UK and South Africa we decided to make a concerted effort to reconnect or renew friendships with those people that we remember fondly.
We are pleased to say that all those we renewed or reconnected with still had the same ‘essence’ or spirit that we knew from years past. While we cannot say what the future holds, we hope that each one of them enjoyed meeting again as much as we did. Long may the friendships continue.
