Holidays: Times of Refreshing

By Nalumino Nalumino

My big brother Likolo Ndalamei has always been an inspiration to me.

This is not because of his successful career as an economist who has served in various high profile management positions but also for his tradition of taking his family out for holidays every year.

At one time I told myself, “well the gentlemen has enough money to spare for such holiday making errands after all he is MD of the Zambia National Commercial Bank, the largest bank in the country.”

But years down the line especially in December 2009, I have come realize that it does not require a lot of money for one to take his family out on holiday. With our (my wife and myself) resources, I successfully managed to take my family to the tourist capital city, Livingstone.

 

Refreshing Time

What a time of refreshing we had gazing at the magnificent Victoria Falls, wildlife in the game park crowned with boat cruise on the Zambezi River on the splendid African Queen boat.

The faces of my wife, Miranda, daughter Thabo and son, Limpho beamed with smiles throughout the trip and they even now have smoothing to talk about.

Though the frequent question I can not answer is: “Daddy, mummy when are we going

back to Livingstone?” Thabo would ask.

 

Planning & Saving

Now, holidaying is not about having too much money but planning and saving the little required resources well in advance. The benefits of a break from our usual routine of life at work or homes are wholesome and rejuvenating to ones inner soul and the relationship with spouse and children invigorated.

 

While on holiday one takes time to delve into deep soul searching questions. One begins to learn that God is a great Creator indeed and his artisanship is second to none.
