Last Friday, YFM lunch time star, Khutso Theledi took a big leap and went on her first international trip to experience the UEFA cup final, live, in Kiev.
Kiev is the capital city of Ukraine, bisected by the Dnieper River and known for its religious architecture, secular monuments and history museums - all of which Theledi experienced during her short trip.
In a series of videos posted by Theledi, she gave fans an inside look into her trip, sharing her feelings at every step. Take a look:
"Traveling - It leaves you speechless then turns you into a storyteller" My first time travelling out of South Africa and the advice I've been given is all true... Wow🙆 What an experience🗺🙏🏻 Thank you to @sonyxperiaza and the Sony #XA2Ultra🤳 capturing every single moment 😍 🇿🇦 🛫 to Kiev🇺🇦 But first stop, Turkey Istanbul then Kiev🙌 #KhutsoXperiencesUkraine 🇺🇦 #XperiaZA #XA2Ultra #UEFACHAMPIONSLEAGUEFINAL #Ukraine
Let me start by saying " Pryvit - hello " The only word I knew and used throughout my experience🙈 Oooh and " Dyakuyu - Thank you " Ukrainian, is a great language to hear and a dizzy language to try read🙆 Дякую... Yip I told you😂 I embraced every single moment traveling out of S.A. for the first time. Ukraine is a beautiful country and Kiev, an extraordinary city with so much history, at some point, to be honest, I felt like I was in Cape Town. The sun would set at 9:30PM and with that, the cold nights made me miss home a little. Waking up to beautiful sunny days, strong winds thou, was hoping my fav crop tops would save me but then again, Kiev curved me with those winds...damn it😂 Many times I attracted attention, like it was hectic where heads turned twice, wanting selfies, a young girl even stopped her WHOLE family just to look at me and said " WOW " 😂. It could have been my exotic look🤗 my awesome energy🙌 my smile😁maybe my great body 😂 Just kidding, but people of colour were non existent there, however, I found the locals to be very friendly and welcoming throughout my experience wanting to know more about S.A🇿🇦 From Right to Left-Hand driving, seeing The Motherland Monument, visiting the Kiev Pechersk Lavra, Kiev River Port boat cruise and finally walking into the Ukrainian National Stadium also known as Kiev Olympic Stadium to witness Real Madrid beat Liverpool 3-1 at the UEFA Champions league final 2018. The atmosphere was insane and the highlight for me, was seeing Gareth Bale's incredible bicycle-kick goal LIVE🙆 From never have I ever travelled out of South Africa🇿🇦 to #KhutsoXperiencesUkraine🇺🇦 all thanx to Sony Xperia ♡ @SonyXperiaZa
For the next few days, Khusto will be giving her fans all the tea on her trip to Kiev during her YFM show, #KrunchTillLunch. You can listen to Khutso every weekday between 9am and 12pm on YFM, 99.2.
