The Prodigal

So it's been almost a week since I got back from Ghana. I was sick and sleeping for the first few days and spent the last two days in training for my new job!! Before going to Ghana I got a new job in a massive department store. I will be working for one of the concessions selling clothes for a fairly new brand and I start Monday which I am SUPER excited about.

If you've followed my blog for a while, you'll probably have picked up on the fact that I LOVE change and new challenges so the prospect of a balancing a new job and starting Uni is pretty exciting for me. Also the fact that my first choice for Uni is to study Business and Entrepreneurship and entails setting up my own business makes me wish I was in Uni already but I guess for now we can just entertain ourselves with tales of my recent travel.

I was in Ghana for two weeks. For the first week I stayed with my family in Kumasi before travelling to the Ghana's capital, Accra, where I spent the remainder of my time there before coming back with my brother. If the first week was 'family week' then the time I spent with my brother would've been 'fun week'. This is not to say spending time with my family, which consists of my grandmothers, great-grandmother and father wasn't fun because following my grandmother's sure footed turns around Dr. Mensah open market in her tiger print dress was definitely a highlight of my trip. Buuut hanging out with my brother on a music video shoot and coming out to a horse in the front of the hotel was pretty cool too.

While in Accra, I stayed on the my campus with family friends and met up with my older brother ( pictured with me above) , older by one year when we went out. My brother happens to have a natural talent for photography that the tripod I normally use, and apparently even myself don't have. He had no problem taking countless photos and videos of me, like the ones above, when showing me around which I was so grateful for.

The time we spent together was limited due to the small number of days I actually spent there but he brought me around to so many places. He was such a great tour guide. Don't worry, I took MANY pictures and videos although I am yet to go through all of them but do keep your eyes and ears out for a video diary coming to a screen near you in the near future.

This visit to Ghana definitely did more to fuel my insatiable wanderlust than satisfy it and now I'm looking for a new destination to set my sights on. Maybe Prague in December or London? Do you have any ideas or suggestions??

For now, I better get back to going through the 2000+ pictures and videos I took and preparing to blow your minds with the beautiful and spectacular country that is Ghana.

Till next time my pretties.

  1. You look so in your element in these pictures! I don't really know how to explain it, but somewhere in the happy, relaxed, peaceful, excited realm :) I can't remember if I've said, but congrats on the new job! Working and university will definitely take some focus and dedication, but you can totally do it! It helps that you're excited for both, haha.

    I can't wait to see your videos and pictures!

  2. Awh Erin, I have no words to describe how good it felt to be back except to say that it most definitely felt like I was in the realm you described!

    And thank you, I have my first official day...actually later today ( hence why I should be sleeping eeeek) but I will make sure to get the sleep I need!

    Finding out my exam results next week so yay, college, work and blogging is definitely a challenge I am ready to take on!
