I waited years to actually set foot in South Africa. An army of elephants couldn’t stifle my excitement when we touched down in Capetown and it was finally real.

I had no idea that I wanted to be a teacher when I graduated university. Law school was an option, fundraising at not-for-profits was a consideration, event planner was possible, and swim instructor was definite, but teacher was never in the mix.ShareThis
Travel has been an eye opener for me. It’s left me speechless, brought me to tears, amazed me, enraged me, educated me and forever changed me.

The Seychelles, the smallest (population-wise) African country, located hundreds of miles east of Kenya, northeast of Madagascar.
