Well, here I go.

On Thursday at 3:25 PM I'll be flying far away. My first destination is Johannesburg, South Africa with short layovers in London and Munich on the way there. It's my second time on the continent, and this time will be a pretty opposite experience... I think. I'm doing it urban style this time around, and although I'm soooo excited, I'm also extremely nervous because everyone continues to show their excitement and support for me with statements like "Don't get raped and mugged!".

Um, great.

It's true that South Africa is known for an extremely high crime rate. It is ranked second in the world for assault and murder per capita and first for rapes per capita. I really hope my mom isn't reading this. Anyway, all that aside it looks like an absolutely BEAUTIFUL country with so much to offer. I'm so excited to take it all in with thousands of other foreigners celebrating the World Cup.

After Joburg, my crew and I are heading to Cape Town where I will reunite with an old friend who I haven't seen in three years! Very exciting. I'll be watching the Cameroon vs Netherlands game and seeing the beauty of this stunning coastal city. 

Next up I fly from Cape Town to Bangkok for 25 days of temples, spicy food, buddhas, beaches, hiking, diving and much, much, more that I can't even predict. I get to share all these experiences with friends and my love and i can't wait to share it all with you too, my loyal readers!

I'll be gone from today until July 25, and I'm telling myself that I will try to post a few photos here and there and some updates on my adventures. Nothing too fashionable as I'm backpacking it and have a total of about five outfits, none very exciting. (God is it ever hard to pack practically) Anyway, I'm going to try really hard and post when I can, but if not, don't worry I haven't forgotten about you all, and I hope you don't forget about me! 

Dress Me Dearly.
