HP Storage in South Africa - and a few wild animals!

P1030646.JPGTo say I was a little excited about being invited to speak at a customer event by our HP Storage team in South Africa is a bit understated.  When they first asked me, I asked them "do you really mean me"?  Well, they did and I'm back from an unbelievable trip.  In this post, I'll briefly talk about all the fun I had, point to video and pictures I have of my weekend at Kruger National Park and share a podcast I did with Aptronics, an HP partner I met with in Johannesburg.


Planes, trains, and automobiles

Ok - the only train I took was between terminals at an airport but it was a very long trip for me to get to entrance of Kruger National Park in South Africa.  42 hours to be exact.  I didn't pay attention to the itinerary I booked and had a 7 hour layover in San Francisco.  That ended up being a good thing because I did get a bunch of things done preparing for the event in Johannesburg. 


I flew into Johannesburg, South Africa and caught a small commuter plane to Nelspruit where I rented a car and headed for the Crocodile Bridge entrance into Kruger National Park.


To see videos and pictures I have of the animals along with the podcast, go to the full blog post.
