Pre-Trip Expectations

11 days and counting!!! I cannot begin to describe just how excited I am about this trip! I’ve only been out of the country one other time and it was to Israel, so needless to say I don’t know what to expect. I’ve seen pictures through the research we did and just out of curiosity, but pictures can only get you so far- I can’t wait to take my own!

The adventure I am the most excited about is the hike up Table Mountain! I love to hike and have hiked many places, so I can’t wait to add this one to my list. The rugby match is going to be pretty awesome too- I have never been to a match before, but they look so intense! I can’t wait to see how day-to-day life goes over there. I believe you can learn the most about a place by just exploring the local streets and soaking up the culture.

I can’t wait to learn about how the South African economy works. It’s crazy to me how in just one country you can see levels of extreme wealth and then the next city over extreme poverty. I want to see how people make their living and interact with each other. 

This trip cannot come fast enough! I am so excited and can’t wait for the adventure to begin!
