Ghana | Learning to Drive

Learning to drive in the UK is very expensive, I’ve spent a lot of money starting to learn how to drive only to be unable to continue lessons largely due to the cost. I’ll be honest and say my apathy is also part of the problem, because while learning to drive is a great skill…

Ghana, Day Three: Red Dirt.

Today’s plan was to get my hair done. I was super excited because it’s been a while since I’ve gone to a hairdresser that knows what to do with my hair and doesn’t charge crazy prices to do anything with it. Unfortunately, my mother forgot that it was Pay Day at their office, so that…

Ghana | Better late than never!

I’ve been getting a lot of confused messages from my friends because of my last post. Don’t worry guys! I’m still in England, I haven’t gone back to Ghana! Basically when I was out there a few months ago, I wrote out a few blog posts, with the intention of putting them up once I…

Ghana, Day Two: The Rise of the Mango Tree.

I’m here, I arrived yesterday, (thankfully) with no jetlag because Ghana and the UK are in the same time zone. But as travelling has a way of making you exhausted just by its nature I slept for the majority of my first day here. My flight here was smooth and uneventful, I just feel that…

Lunch!

So tasty, nom nom. I went to visit my daddy at his building site and I ate some of his lunch. ^_^ it was good. It’s pretty hot here, so so hot, my uncle just informed me that this is the hottest month of the year. And, the electricity just cut out so no air…

Look who got her Ghanaian Learner’s Permit?

Baller. I feel awful thouvh. I’ve missed two practical lessons and one classroom, so I’m behind on my progress. It’s because I’ve been legit ill, honest! It bums me out a little, but I’ll deal. I have to pass before I leave. Gonna turn drop that learner title in no time.

Driving lessons are going well!

Thanks for asking 🙂 I drove my mom around the estate and she complimented my driving. That made me feel really good. The person I’d really like to impress is my father. Largely because the last time I tried to drive him anywhere I stalled, cried and he had to drive us home. Hawkward. I…

nyam nyam

My mom and I baked cheese scones. This is a much much better attempt at baking than my earlier fairy cakes. These are so tasty. I like them a bit burnt but no one else does so I’ll have to make do. ^___ ^

The Beach

I don’t have a fear of water, I actually think the beach is quite beautiful. I’m just really practical about it. I know the sand will get on my nerves and anywhere it possibly can. The sea breeze will be too much, and ugh is that salt in the air?! Driving on the coastline I…

This is our house.

I’ll upload more pictures when I get back to England, but till then ill try and upload an interesting picture every once in a while. This place is huge, every bedroom is en suite and has a fan and an air conditioning unit. It’s wonderful.

Life in Ghana so far

Life is going pretty well. I felt I should write something now that my internet is pretty okay. Week one is over! It was a pretty intense week, I felt all sorts of homesick and hand a few panic attacks but I think know I’m okay now. I’m finally getting into the swing of life…

I’m leaving on a jet plane.

Ermagad you guys! I’m leaving for Ghana in like two days, and I haven’t packed a single thing. I’m leaving for six weeks! I should be way more panicked than this! Instead, I’ve been shopping for things to buy, which is way more fun. Pretty clothing > Packing. I know I’ll have to pack eventually,…
