Travel

In 2008 I arrived on the English shore in a bid to see the world.  Needless to say that my intention to travel the world only lasted a year before I met my now husband.

Ever since then we aim to go abroad at least once a year since we both really love to travel and experience new things.  We do, however, try to discover as much of the UK as we possibly can.

You can listen to my travel adventures as a podcast on Spotify if you prefer.


Come explore the world with me…

My first visit to Paris

It has been nearly 12 years since my first visit to Paris, France. I had a bucket list since I can remember and one of the things I wanted to experience was to be at the top of the Eiffel tower by my 25th birthday.

Switzerland: Maienfeld

Many years ago I was lucky enough to visit the stunning Switzerland with my uncle, auntie and cousin. One of the places we visited was Heididorf where Johanna Spyri’s book comes to life.

Picturesque Towns around Lake Garda

When I first heard that I will be visiting Lake Garda I had no idea what to expect. Now that I’ve visited, I cannot think of many other places that has the charm of this part of Italy.

Exploring Venice

Have I mentioned that I am pretty privileged when it comes to seeing the world and visiting new places? As…

Top places to visit in Paris

I’ve always imagined that Paris is a place where dreams could come true. The first time I visited Paris I knew I was right.

Eating our way through Vienna

If there is one thing in life that I truly love, then it is the art of good food. The Hubby and I spent a day and a half in Vienna on a short little weekend break and consumed way more calories than what was needed to sustain life…

Beautiful Butterflies in Vienna

Our day-and-a-half Viennese whirlwind adventure has taken a not so unexpected turn when we came across a beautifully preserved greenhouse full of butterflies.

A Viennese Adventure

We were merrily walking along the Volksgarten Park on the left. As tourists do, we wanted to explore the park a bit more.

Kunsthistorisches Museum

A taste of Vienna

It has been weeks’ worth of planning. All I wanted was the most romantic weekend away in one of the most romanticised cities in the world. It is therefore only logical that it is pouring outside. How truly disappointing!

Planning a weekend city break to Vienna

I’ve always been a romantic at heart. Besides Paris, I’ve always imagined 18th Century Vienna as one of the most romantic cities on earth. To say that our visit was a slight disappointment is somewhat of an understatement…

Giant avocados!

6 Things I loved in South Africa

You often see these extreme health and safety picture meme’s with the caption ‘Only in Africa’… I’ve identified 6 things I truly love about South Africa.

Top Dinner spots in Amsterdam

When you are having this much fun in Amsterdam, you are going to get HUNGRY.  And you would want to EAT.  We ate.  Good food!!

Top breakfast eateries in Amsterdam

Whenever I travel, I want to taste the local cuisine.  During our four-day stay in Amsterdam was not any different.  Here is a list of the restaurants we visited for breakfast.

Eversince I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by the Netherlands.  When I learnt about it in school I couldn’t fathom the idea of a country being below sea level.  

Christmas Nostalgia (part 2)

Oh no! I cannot believe it is nearly February. Nearly a twelfth into the New Year and I’m still in the Christmas spirit!

Only in Africa

Let’s face it: South Africa still amazes me every time I go back there. Life there is just lived in exponentials.

Wow! A Year Already?!

Today a year ago we officially got married. To celebrate the fact that we probably both deserve a medal for putting up with each other, we decided to do so in style.

An amazing upside-down day in London

I love London.  I’ve lived here for 9 years, 6 months and 12 days; I’m still not tired of London.  Every time I venture out into the city I stumble across a new little find.
