summary of washington

The one thing I missed about being home (South Africa) is the summer sun and was super looking forward to seeing it when I got home. However, mother nature had thought that maybe I hadn’t received enough of the cloudy weather and so decided to make me wait a bit till I could see the…

snow (& lots of it)

Coming from South Africa, I barely experience any form of snow and if we do its so little that we still have to go to school. Whilst being here in Washington, I have experienced snow and felt so young that i was going to lay in the ground and make a snow angel. Here are…

Growing up in a city doesn’t give me (maybe you too) much opportunities to go exploring (especially by being a girl who loves the outdoors but isn’t a big fan of bugs) The journey started off…

mora – yummy ice cream
