Saying Goodbye to Cape Town

I am still in disbelief that I am no longer in South Africa. How did five months fly by so quickly? How is my journey already over?  I’m still working through everything that happened — sometimes I wonder if it even happened at all — and the fact that I will be forever changed .

I spent my last night in Cape Town on top of Table Mountain to watch the sunset. I couldn’t think of a better way to say goodbye to a city that I have come to love so dearly.


I can’t wait until the day I get to return to South Africa. I know in my heart that some day I will. I will hold all that I have learned and experienced close to me, and never forget the woman that I have now become because of it.



My dear Cape Town, I will be thinking of you every day.

Until next time I will remember what you taught me:

Live fully,
face fear,
take advantage of everything,
and always, always have fun.
