I'm kicking off 2017 with some big news – yesterday I quit my job and next month I'm moving to Africa! Uganda, specifically.
Words can't express how excited I am to live abroad again. Some of my friends think I'm insane – I'm quitting a great job to move to Africa, a continent I've never visited. But hey, you only live once and I've wanted to see Africa since I was a kid. It's now or never.
So what am I doing in Africa, you may be wondering? In Uganda, I'll be working in marketing for a food delivery company. For now, I have a six-month job contract.
What's interesting is that I'm not leaving because I'm miserable. In fact, I've been really happy recently. I have an incredible group of friends, have been taking acting classes (yes, really), and enjoy my job. But when the opportunity to move to Africa came up, I knew it was something I couldn't pass up.
What's more is I'm excited to work on personal projects. I have a month off between the last day at my current job and the day I move to Africa, and I'm SO excited to finally write an au pairing e-book and a non-fiction book proposal. I also would love to blog more – I still haven't blogged about my trip to Europe in the fall, and have lots of photos and stories I want to share.
Travel Advice Needed!
Anyway, I would LOVE to hear your Africa recommendations! I haven't done much research and have never been there, so am basically clueless. So if you've been there, please let me know your favorite spots!
