About me

My roots are in the Eastern Cape but Cape Town is definitely now home. I love travelling and being in nature, especially the ocean as surfing is a big passion of mine. I have lived in London, Hawaii and Aspen and I have travelled to 37 countries so far. I am married and have a daughter called Maya. Our other 'daughter' is a French bulldog called Flo. I once went to Iceland for the day and have run the Comrades Ultra Marathon.

Where have I travelled? 

In South Africa, from the diamond coast of the Northern Cape to warm waters of kwazulu-Natal. We love to go away for weekends as often as possible. Countries in Africa that I have travelled to include Namibia, Swaziland, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Ghana, Zanzibar, Seychelles, Mauritius and Egypt. Destinations I've been to around the globe include North, South and Central America, Australia, Fiji, parts of Europe, South East Asia, India, Japan, Singapore, Iceland, Russia, Dubai and Qatar. 

My favourite travel moment

It's impossible to narrow down to one but highlights include getting engaged on an empty beach in the Seychelles, hitchhiking across Sumbawa in Indonesia, hot-air ballooning over Damaraland, and bungee jumping at Victoria Falls. 

Where I'd love to go next

Anywhere I have never been before!

Nothing beats being surrounded by the calls and sounds of the bush, and it's one of the top reasons I love Africa. When travelling through this incredible and diverse continent, my advice is to always keep an open heart and an open mind!
