Paralympic Wheelchair Rugby team member Craig Parson was part of the ‘Force’ (Western Australia) team which won the Silver Medal in 2000. That is quite an achievement not many of us can claim! Wow!
We had the great pleasure of welcoming Craig, Eileen and their stunning daughter Ciara to South Africa on our 8 Day Kruger Safari.
They planed their holiday with us already almost 2 years ago, then some unexpected health issues delayed the tour, fantastic recovery with tremendous positive attitude and now in April 2011 it was eventuality time! I felt like I already knew them before I met them after the Safari at our Epic Guest House in Cape Town after all the e-mail communications we had back and forth :)
They are well travelled and have seen a couple more places then I have (I might add a little jealously :) and are truly amazing people. This is Craig on his Quadbike trip across Australia to visit the scene of his accident.
Now their trip leads them to Paris - Disney world and then on to Ireland where Eileen is originally from.
Some of their highlights and comments will follow shortly.
