Some Random Stuff About Me:

  • After all my travelling I decided to move back to South Africa, there’s no place like home..
  • Love Cats AND Dogs
  • Love Africa and the wilderness – I have travelled the world and keep coming back to the contrasts of Africa, the love the culture and the challenges.
  • I have saved some fellow hikers on a mountain hike in winter in the Drakensburg mountains, from freezing to death, by staying in the cold (-12 degrees Celsius our hiking guide told me) wind and making a fire out of cowpat(cow dung – it was too high in altitude in the mountainside for trees and wood) and serving them warm sugar water /tea – some of them even came back for seconds 🙂
  • Almost forgot, I like eating out… can you tell?
