After a 15 hour flight, I arrived safely in Johannesburg! I was greeted at the airport by someone from our lodge. After exchanging US dollars for SA Rand, I was ready to go, and my driver took me to the Outlook Lodge, where Julie and I are staying for the evening. I enjoyed seeing as much of Johannesburg as possible on the drive from the airport, but my view was somewhat limited as it was already evening and dark-so I look forward to exploring tomorrow!
Upon arrival to the lodge, I was greeted by the innkeeper, Francouis, who showed me to my room. I was happy to get settled in! Once I started unpacking, I noticed that my husband had hidden little notes of encouragement all throughout my luggage, including a packet of letters for me to open, with one for each day of my trip! After getting settled, I ventured back into the common area of the lodge where I spent part of the evening by the fireplace chatting with another guest from Norway and Francouis. Julie arrived a little later and we have enjoyed getting to know each other!
Tomorrow we look forward to exploring around Johannesburg a little bit before heading out!
