To Africa and Back
I’m kind of surprised at how much I’ve already done for this trip, and I can now officially check booking Beachside off the list. That’s the hotel I will be staying at pre-cheetah experience. The place is absolutely beautiful, and I’m so happy I’ll be getting a chance to stay there and rest before my week long volunteer excursion.
I have a couple of other bookings to make, though I’ve already touched based with all of them. I also need to officially book my bus ticket which may or may not need to be revised depending on the number of actual travel days – I may be over the 7 day limit!
Otherwise, travel/health insurance and a few purchases are all that’s standing in between me and South Africa. I’m not counting my doctor’s visit because I’ve already booked the appointment, and really, I have no choice but to go. I wish I had considered the possibility of getting a tattoo before my first visit (with doctor’s consultation.) I would love to get a second tattoo while there, something commemorating my work with the cheetahs and my first visit to Africa. I’m sure in a big city like Cape Town, I will have no worries, though.
That’s all for now. This tattoo thing is a new idea, and I’ll update once I’ve got a better idea about the parlors in Cape Town and what exactly it should look like.
