The Eagle’s Flight to Coachella

15th April to 13th May 2013

 

I bought a ticket to the Coachella Music Festival……and I somehow made it there!

Back in January 2013, I took a huge leap of faith, and bought a ticket to one of the most popular and widely acclaimed music festivals in the USA, if not the world.

As a freelance music journalist from Cape Town, South Africa, this was a dream come true to be able to report on a festival with the calibre of Coachella. After nearly three months of hard work spent planning and fundraising for the trip, my American Dream finally became a reality.

After the festival was over, I continued to travel across the United States, staying with friends and family friends in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Nashville, Columbus, and New York City. Needless to say, it was an experience of a lifetime, I feel incredibly fulfilled by it, and I definitely want to go again!
