(I started this blog a few years ago, but unfortunately lost basis or motivation for it. I am now happily here to start a whole new beginning in sharing my experiences with a little more life.)
The basics : I am from South Africa, Durban. I have found myself in a wonderful position to travel and work. I am an English teacher to second language learners. I have been blessed to live and work in South Korea, Vietnam and currently Macau.
I love LIFE. No matter what it throws at me, it is meant to be enjoyed and it is meant to be lived. I do my best to see the adventure and the bigger picture to make the most of every path sent my way.
Traveling has become a way of life for me. I am the definition of a nomad and as some friends like to label me, a hippie. Ever since I was a child I have been traveling with my family and to this day I have been moving around living in different friends and families homes. I am fortunate to say I have so many places to call home!
I started school in the USA, Waco, Texas. My mother studied her doctorate in Baylor University which allowed me and my sisters the chance to experience 2 years of life in America and clearly what pushed my 6 year old brain to the motto “Traveling is life”.
Since then I have attended 5 primary schools and 3 high schools around South Africa! Which for me is what created my nomad self, adapting to new environments, being a new kid to make friends quickly and enjoying each move as it came (eventually)
My Friends and my Family are very important to me. You will hear about them often I’m sure. My family has raised me to be a strong independent woman who have always supported me and loved me even when I made some “interesting” decisions for myself.
The family of friends I have made in my life and are making in my life truly excite me. As you get older you wonder if you can really make lifelong friendships still but traveling has completely changed this. Living in a completely different country, meeting others from different walks of life and experiencing genuine connections with strangers from a distant past has left me truly blessed. I have grown and learned so much through them.
Traveling is a way of life for me. To discover, breath and learn about the mysteries, beauties and history of this wonderful planet we call earth. Sharing my travels is not just for you as readers, but for me to document my life’s adventures – to make sure it’s never forgotten. (plus I would like my future grand kids to believe me when I tell them my stories.)
Here are a few captured moments of some important people in my life across the world.
