Family holidays where spent mostly driving from Johannesburg to Cape Town to visit grandparents or in the bush whilst accompanying her father on his exploration of caves and emerging from the ground, perfectly content covered in dirt from head to toe or tagging along with him as we hiked up to whatever memorial or battle site he could find and enthral Taryn in his passion for history and incredible stories he used to tell.
Taryn's love of the outdoors was evident from a young age and every moment she got was spent barefoot and in the sun.
Taryn's personal favourites:
Swimming with the whale sharks and dolphins in Mexico; snorkelling with the black tip sharks in the Maldives; watching the release of baby turtles on Bird Island in the Seychelles; being charged by a bull elephant in musth whilst on a walk in Tanzania; walking through the tea plantations on the Ceylon Tea Trail in Sri Lanka; dune bashing in Dubai, sleeping under the stars on the star beds at Loisaba, Kenya; being flown low across the Masai Mara listening to the sweet sounds of “Sweet Caroline” by Neil Diamond and watching the sunrise whilst sat atop Sigiriya in Sri Lanka.
