I can achieve that what I believe
I feel very fortunate to live in the most beautiful city in Africa- Cape Town. I am surrounded by the beauty of the ocean and majestic mountains with arguably one of the worlds most beautiful beaches just 5 minutes from my house. I am one of the lucky ones!
Since finishing high school, I have been traveling the globe on and off and just can't get enough of travel.
I love it so much I chose it as my career. I have worked in the tourism industry for over 10yrs and I currently work in the Inbound sector -bringing tourists into Southern Africa and planning tailor-made tours. I am therefore a Southern Africa specialist having travelled to many unbelievable African destinations, for free!
I got married in April 2012 and live with my husband Ron and our 4 crazy dogs - Katy the Bassett hound, Whiskey the Dachshund, Samson the cross-Labrador, and our recently adopted Cindy-Loo the Maltese poodle (all were adopted & came with sad yet inspiring stories)
In my free time, I love spending time on the beach, going on rides with my husband on our John-Way Scooter, cooking and trying out new recipes, trying new restaurants, having regular Braai's (BBQ) (we Braai at least twice a week, come rain or shine), reading on my hammock in my garden and exploring new music artists.
It is our mind that creates the kind of life we live.
The purpose of life, is a life of purpose.
