One Amazing Thing I've Done

Angkor Wat was pretty amazing, besides that, every time we take flight, that's pretty amazing too - makes you realize how small and insignificant you are.

Teach, Learn, Share

We'd be glad to share any knowledge I have whether it is teaching English or Afrikaans, things one should know about South Africa but nobody ever tells you, anything. We like learning new things and like teaching others new things.

I can teach you how to make stained glass windows or lamps. Can teach you a bit of piano, but I don't have one yet. Can also teach you how to make a leather belt but I don't have our own equipment now, just used my dad's stuff. I can show you how to cross stitch too.

Cambodia, Mozambique, Namibia, Saudi Arabia, Swaziland, United Kingdom

Countries I've Lived In

Canada, South Africa, Thailand, United Arab Emirates
