Emily Maynard and Jef Holm of “The Bachelorette” are in Ghana right now on a trip with Jef's company People Water, and fans have been dying for updates. Emily and Jef traveled with a couple of others from People Water along with several people from their charity partner group, Generosity Water. Some of the others in the group have shared a few updates and photos via Instagram over the past few days, but “Team Jem” fans were dying for something from Jef or Emily themselves. Monday evening, they got their wish.
Sunday the group visited the Elmina Castle in Ghana, and it seems that everybody was quite moved by the experience. The group has been doing some local sightseeing in the Accra area, it seems, as they wait for the opportunity to visit the newly built wells on Tuesday. Monday even Jef Holm shared a picture of Emily standing at Elmira and he simply noted, “Sunday travels. Elmina Castle, Ghana.” Fans are loving Emily Maynard's toned down look, though she clearly is throwing a bit of her personal style into things even with the casual clothes and basic hair and make-up. Fans obviously are enjoying Jef's update, as the photo had over 15,000 “likes” in the first hour or so that it was posted.
The couple is expected to visit the new wells in Ghana Tuesday, and it seems they'll be returning back to the U.S. later this week. Jef had mentioned in an interview that they'd be gone a week, and many believe that Emily and Jef will be attending the wedding of “The Bachelor” producers Cassie and Peter in California on Saturday.
Fans hope that it won't take long after that for them to fill their Instagram, Twitter and Facebook pages with updates for fans. Of course Jef Holm has another big event to work on after his trip to Ghana: his move to Charlotte to be near Emily Maynard and her daughter Ricki. Will it be “happily ever after” for Emily and Jef now that “The Bachelorette 2012” is over? Many fans think so, and they can't wait to go along for the ride.
