The fact that I was able to take six months off work to travel the world – and that it actually worked – still feels surreal. I am so grateful to the Pomegranite team for helping me make this happen.
I am also so grateful for the timing of it all. Out of six months, we only lost four days as the COVID-19 pandemic escalated and we cut things short to skid onto a hasty plane home. The last one out of São Paulo to South Africa, it turned out.
Sitting in lockdown, it feels almost impossible that we could have visited so many incredible places.
How do you even begin to go about summarising six months of memories, across three continents and 13 countries?
