*NOVEL EDITION: No photos, smaller size*
As 1995 wound to a close, Katherine Krige prepared to leave home. Her father died when she was five years old, but she had always dreamed of learning more about him and where he came from. With university behind her, she aimed to find out. The trick was that his hometown was 13,000 kilometers away.
After a few letters to long-lost kin, a plan was put in motion. She gathered a passport, planned some initial adventures, and gamely left her old life behind. As soon as she stepped off the plane in Cape Town though, those plans quickly began to fall apart. Over the next several months, she learned more about her father's homeland, and herself, as she trekked across Southern Africa. It wasn't always easy, but growth never is.
Take a leap of faith and join Katherine as she explores her fears, sheds some tears, makes new friends, meets family, and experiences an incredible, life-changing journey that spanned 10 countries over 10 months. Grab a backpack...let's go
