Elephant Crossings and Police Stops.

Traveling in Botswana between Nata and Kasane one frequently encounters Elephants crossing the road. It is quite something to witness this magnificent gentle giant casually ambling across the road. I guess one should feel a bit intimidated and threatened by their size...

Freckles and Dusty Toes!

I never imagined that I would be sitting up north in the Southern part of Africa, Botswana to be precise and telling a story. The country and the wildness have suitably inspired me. Mind you, considering the many paths that I have already walked, where I now find...

Nine Months in Vermont

“I don’t think that it is about finding who you are. I think it is about finding a place where you can be who you are.” This is not quite the title that you will find on some alluring novel. ‘Nine months in Bordeaux’, sounds a whole lot more exotic. For me though, the...

Free the Nipple and an “Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini”.

I happened to be watching Carte Blanche on Sunday 13th November, when an insert came up titled ‘Free the Nipple’. It is an initiative to raise awareness for gender equality by showing your nipple in public. I watched with great interest and it really got me thinking....

About Me

I am a courageously vulnerable maverick. Made of adventure, brains and all things fine. I am excitedly trying to fit in as many life experiences as possible so that I can regale you with my written ramblings, whilst treading lightly as I go. Endeavouring to balance a holistic, active lifestyle with a passion for food, wine and chocolate. My kitchen is my happy place and is not only for dancing but also for producing an array of yummy wholesome foods. I am transitioning into living a self-reliant and resilient lifestyle in the spirit of ‘from the garden to the home’. In so doing I will, create my own food security, become energy efficient and harvest available natural resources while putting them to valuable use. I strive for balance and moderation and I have four ‘rooms’ that I try and visit on a regular basis. I am not always successful but I nevertheless forge ahead with great vigour. Body - for physical activity and nutrition Mind - for mental agility Emotions - for greater understanding Spirit - for enlightenment. I have many strings in my bow and while I cannot sing, I can fiddle a good tune. You are more than welcome to come and walk beside me on my journey!
