Happy new year everyone! I hope that 2021 brings you great health and happiness. It’s difficult to know what to expect from 2021 after all the lessons we learnt throughout the past year. As a result, I keep thinking about goals for the year but I haven’t written any down at all. Regardless, I truly hope it is a special year for everyone.
I started off the year moving out of Joburg and into Hartbeespoort. If you are familiar with the medical training program, after graduating, doctors are required to complete two years internship followed by one year of community service. In both your internship and community service years, you could be placed anywhere in the country. Ryan was placed out in the North West province for his community service year which is the reason for our move. We had a month to make the move and it was a bit of a stressful process but it all came together. I documented the process in this vlog if you’d like to watch.
We’re now in our new home, unpacked and finding our way around the area which is so much fun. It’s quite exciting to live somewhere new for 12 months. I am already enjoying being closer to nature. The mountains really take my breath away every time I pull up our drive. Our dog, Khloe, is also loving her new surroundings which makes us so happy.
If you know of any cute places or visits that we need to make in and around the area, please let me know. I’d love suggestions! I guess that my main goal for the year is to make the most of the year living in this part of the country and exploring places I’ve never been to before. Have you set any goals for the year? What is at the top of your list?
