There are never enough words to explain the excitement that builds inside of me when I am going to see my oldest mate in the world. This journey is so different from all the others we have shared as I FINALLY get to meet his lovely wife.
While Brendan and I have been blessed to see each other many times over the years when he has travelled to South Africa, I have not been able to meet the love of his life in person Naoko till today!
Thanks to technology we have had many FaceTime, Whatsapp and Skype calls and conversations, however today I finally got to hug her. What a blessing. I am truly grateful.
I start my 9 day journey in San Fran today and it has started with a great Braai, great tunes and lots of laughs. I am truly utterly thankful for ever second.
