Off to the Cape!

This past week I traveled down to Cape Town, South Africa for 6 days to see one of my dear friends from high school. Jen is currently traveling on the Watson fellowship for a year. She began in Columbia and is traveling to South Africa, Greece, India and Mongolia. Firstly it was so unbelievably wonderful to have a piece of home so far away from home. Despite the trip being so short, being able to connect in person with each other after not seeing each other since July was so remarkable. Most of the trip consisted of discussing our lives, hiking mountains, laying on the beach, exploring downtown, eating delicious food, staring in awe at all the options at the grocery store, laughing hysterically, listening to Christmas carols, and just enjoying the time we had together.

I was so grateful to have a little break for a few days and to get to see a familiar face in an unfamiliar place. Honestly, the whole time I was trying to convince myself I was so far away from home because it felt like Jen brought home to me. I am learning more and more throughout these travels that I find home in the people I am with. While my heart is still apart of California and Tennessee, I am finding that I can find home in so many different places. Suffice to say, I am so grateful I got to spend time with my best friend while abroad and I am so excited to see where we both go and experience over the next year. Cheers, y’all!

Here are some photos of this beautiful trip!
