I found myself going through my old pictures recently and somehow I kept going back to this one. This was taken in my final year at school and my friends convinced me to join the cheer leading team. Our big yearly sports day was held at the Greenpoint Stadium in Cape Town - who would have guessed that years later soccer teams from all over the world would compete for the world cup on this very spot!
What really kept me going back to this picture though, I think, was not what the place where it was taken has become, but where I was in my own journey at this point.
18 Years old. Starry eyed.
How I wish I knew that the Camino existed then. Who knows how much my backpack would have weighed had I taken to the road at this point... :)
