In less than 24 hours I am heading abroad! I will be spending the next three months living and working at a brewery in Cape Town, South Africa! I am so excited to spend my summer (which is actually winter in South Africa) brewing beer, climbing mountains, exploring beaches, seeing wildlife, and learning about South African culture.
Even though I leave tomorrow (Friday), I don’t land in Cape Town until Sunday. I have an 11-hour layover in Chicago, a 7-hour layover in London, and a 2-hour layover in Johannesburg before finally reaching Cape Town around 11 AM (South African time) on Sunday. I am so excited to get to Cape Town, but I am NOT excited for the stressful few days leading up to my arrival. And of course it is supposed to thunderstorm all day tomorrow, so that’s great.
Additionally, I still have not started packing…..
