Today is a sad day. It is a day of too many goodbyes to too many amazing people that have come to the end of their Madwaleni adventure. What strong bonds we form here in such a short time! I am continually amazed at the incredible people that keep arriving at this place year after year, who creep ever so quickly into our hearts, families and lives. While the time I have spent with you feels way too short and your departure premature, I am so grateful for the time we have spent and the memories we have made together.
What a fitting end to an incredible year it was to dine, laugh and reminisce on Nkanya beach and swim late into the night in bright green, phosphorescent waters.
It feels surreal that the homes we have come to see as your own, are now being swept and cleaned for a group of new faces.
I haven’t felt this way before in four years, which should tell you something of the year we have had together and the kind of people you all are.
Thank-you for what you have brought to this place – it is so much better off for it.
I feel incredibly jealous of the people who get to spend 2017 with you… I am sure you have incredible times ahead sailing after schools of Yellow-fin, travelling in India, doing PhD’s, starting OT practices, saving fynbos and rare toads, buying camera’s, starting up photography, drinking Hobgoblin’s with special friends and carving insane moves on huge icy-cold waves.
We love you guys!
P.S. We’ll be booking our tickets to Cape Town soon
