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.

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.

Debra Levinson was spot on when she said: “One of the great joys of traveling through Italy is discovering firsthand that it is, indeed, a dream destination.” Italy is the dream destination for the majority of us.

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…

i AMsterdam

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.  

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.
