eclairs

  I’m missing France. The day I enjoyed my eclair and had mistakenly eaten most of Alex’s because I forgot which flavor I had ordered. Walking through the old town of Cognac and Paris, there was literally a pastry shop on each corner and I couldn’t resist but try one too many. The French treat…

highlights of 2018

In a nutshell, 2018 has felt like it has taken 3 years but all in all it’s been a heck of a goodie. I have done the most travel that I have ever done before, been pushed to my limits and have been embarked on some really cool adventures, internally and externally. I mean it…

cape town with the girls

Half way through the year and yo girl needed a break from work, university and Johannesburg in general and decided a sneaky visit to Cape Town would be suitable.

Luckily for me, I was able to have a sneaky look at what the North of Portugal was like. Oddly enough it was very different. The people are still just as friendly but it’s so wonderfully green and natury and majestic that I was left in awe. I got to meet a little old Portuguese…

lets get lost in lagos

The title perfectly describes my adventures in the South of Portugal. From using shower gel as a body cream, basically falling in every little city I visited and getting hit on by all the golden oldies. I spent roughly 3 and a half weeks laughing till I couldn’t breathe with Keanu, Dino (Keanu’s brother), their…

mountain sanctuary

The first block of university has been super busy – adapting to the changing my majors and trying to find some time for me and for the special people in my life has been quite hard. As you know in my “treat yo’self” blog post mentioned earlier I have been a bundle of stress and…

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…
