Life in Stellenbosch as an exchange student

Life as an exchange student in Stellenbosch, South Africa was better than anything I could have ever imagined. Just thinking back to it, I find it incredible how many wonderful memories I was able to make on a daily basis, and just how much there always was to do. You will never be bored if you live there. Below is a collection of everyday pictures I took during my time there.

during Spring and all the way until the beginning of Summer, the wonderful jacarandas were in bloom everywhere and provided perfect photo opportunities

wine tasting is an absolute must if you live there and it was something we would literally do at least once a week… all the estates are beautiful and you never get tired of the wines or the views

I don’t think it’s hard to see why I would be ready to go back any minute.
