Good Evening from this part of the world!
I am so excited to embark on this journey to Stellenbosch! As I looked forward to taking off from London Heathrow, I couldn’t help but feel a mix of excitement and nervousness. Despite my prepared itinerary, there was one big hiccup when I realized my original backpack was too large to bring on the plane – leaving me no choice but to check it in. But, for the first time in months, I was about to board a plane and travel to another country! This destination happens to be South Africa, as part of Bama study abroad. While I took in the feeling of anticipation, there was only one thought in my mind: Roll Tide! As I boarded the plane, I couldn’t help but feel a wave of emotions – excitement, anticipation, and a little bit of fear. I was about to embark on an experience of a lifetime, taking me to new places, new faces, and new adventures, and with each step I took, I grew more and more eager to get started.
I had done my research and prepared myself for what was ahead, but nothing could have prepared me for the journey I was about to take. With my suitcase filled with supplies, I was ready to explore all the wonders this foreign country had to offer. From the bustling cities to the quiet, rural towns, I was sure to come face-to-face with a variety of experiences that would forever shape me and my perspective.
