Over the summer, my super awesome, amazing, British grandmother decided to take me to South Africa to show me where she grew up! It was probably the most amazing two weeks of my life, and I would do anything to go back. We went to many different places in South Africa-Johannesburg, Pretoria (the capital), Durban, a National Park where we went on multiple game drives, Umhlanga, Umhloti, Cape Town and more! So, here are some pictures!
My favorite animal in the park – the jaguar. This male jaguar was absolutely massive. He was so impressive and beautiful and just wow. And yes, we were THAT close to all of the animals. Terrifying and breathtaking.
Table Mountain in Cape Town. AKA one of the most amazing places in the entire world. Google pictures of this for a mindblowing experience :P
South African fruit called granadilla, which looks absolutely disgusting but tastes like heaven.
Because elephants. Our ranger (tour guide, basically) called babies(of any kind of animal...and people) pygmies.
And a picture of the Indian Ocean. It was SO GREEN. In Cape Town the Indian Ocean meets the Atlantic and it’s really cool because their so distinctly different in colors you can actually see the difference. This is also my “Little Mermaid” picture, with the wave crashing on the rock and… yeah
From on top of Table Mountain. Note the green water of the Indian Ocean!
In other news, many of you know I got a puppy in the Spring! His name is Maximus and he is a dachschund. I love him with all of my heart and he is the best little weenie ever. Enjoy some pictures of his cuteness :)
Casual selfie with the Iota placard from when we hosted District Convention in the Spring 2014! :)
My dad and I went ziplining and he ALWAYS makes this face when he takes a selfie. He says it’s because he’s thinking too hard haha.
Me and my super awesome twittle (twin little) Elysekies at our first BUGWB gig of the year! We’re cute. We know ;)
