A Life Update.

Hello everyone!

Today I thought a good solid life update was in order.


Jurgen surprised me last weekend by taking me on a mid-study break to Bushbabies!  He knows me so well.  If I could describe my dream job {salary not considered} it would probably be working here, or travelling for the rest of my life, one of the two.  This was our second time visiting the monkey sanctuary in the past six months and it most definitely won't be our last.  It's my happy place - plain and simple.  I'll be back on Thursday with more photos and details from our weekend!

In other news, I finished my post-graduate degree!  It's been a long time coming and it felt so good to hand in my final exam yesterday afternoon.  I could just feel the stress melting off.  This girl has officially been studying for seven years now and I still have one or two more years to go {depending on the programme}.  By the time I really finish I think I'll be just about ready to throw the towel in on studying for good.  But until then I'm going to celebrate this glorious break in-between studies.  It's going to be pretty darn amazing.

Jurg and I are planning a three week road trip through Namibia in December and January!  We're starting in Cape Town and slowly making our way up to Etosha National Park in the northern part of the country before turning around and heading back to Jo'burg to start the new year.  All of our plans are slowly but surely coming together and I can't wait to share more as everything is finalized.

Lastly {to all of my American friends out there}, be sure to vote today!

  3. So happy you get to take a break from studying! And congrats on finishing, you have way more endurance than I do.

    By the way, Idele {I'm sure you've met} and her bf is going to Namibia with two of his friends in December. Maybe you guys will bump into each other!
