Something old and something new 💕
I’ve spent the past month showing @meyercapetown around the West Coast on his first ever trip to the USA. We’ve been exploring all of my favorite things and some of the best bucket list experiences I could think of: San Diego beaches, LA traffic, a county fair, In N Out (duh), a baseball game, bingo in Palm Springs, a concert in Joshua Tree, a stroll through Target (lol), Amazon Prime shopping, Taco Tuesday, breakfast at a 50’s diner, and, of course, a weekend in Vegas (comment below if you caught his dance moves in my IG story 🤣)! We’ve got Disneyland and San Francisco to go before concluding our big adventure and returning to Cape Town. I spent 6 months traveling around Africa experiencing countless moments of excitement and culture shock. I naively never imagined he would feel the same “shock” coming to the US. I’ll never forget his astonishment seeing “American” things for the first time, which has been every 5 minutes. (He’s even kept count of how many American flags he’s seen since arriving: 689 🇺🇸). I’ve never been so aware of the incredible convenience and customer service we are blessed with in this country. I mean, seriously, we have drive-thru Starbucks and ATMs and free 2-day shipping! It’s been absolutely unforgettable, eye-opening, and so much fun— I’ll miss playing tourist in my backyard!
