My summer in South Africa. I leave May 28 and will be back in the states on July 17. I'll be spending it with some of my closest friends in one of the most beautiful countries in the world. If you have any interest in keeping up with our progress (and i hope you do) just check in here for our adventures. Lots of love.
travel tip number one: drink water. drink lots & lots of water.
travel tip number two: when you cannot read the map -
(because it’s in French and you got a C in Spanish II class sophomore year of college & decided maybe you weren’t meant to be one of those oh-so-clever-multi-lingual-people.)
When you cannot read the map, don’t under any circumstances look at that map and think:
“Well. Notre Dame & the Louvre & the Arc de Triomphe don’t look too terribly far apart. Let’s walk.”
travel tip number three: do some research. you know, like google the city, even wikipedia isn’t you’re worst option. else you just end up with a bunch of lovely pictures of…well…you’re not quite sure.
travel tip number four: Paris really is a gorgeous city. Do yourself a favor and go. Just not necessarily the way we did.
