A  thirty-something year old Tripadvisor junkie/ Global gypsy/cupcakerer/ chocoholic/pinup girl/drama queen /thinker/do-er and all round pleasure purveyor.

Born and bred Capetonion, next stop The World! I Love experiencing new & diverse cultures…will try anything once 😉

With 15 years of Local and  International experience in the Hospitality Industry, I think it’s fair to say that I know a little something about Travel and Customer service.

Finally retiring my professional hospitality hat to explore travel through completely different eyes, I’ve taken a decidedly different step in the digital direction as a Twitvangelist/Social Media Addict & iPhonographer in the making.

I love new places, faces and tastes…my insatiable curiosity & sense of adventure has led me to some pretty interesting places feeding my eclectic appetite for the unusual.

I’ve lived in: London, UK for 2 years – when I was 18 joining this South African rite of passage, I think almost all of us did when we were younger….backpacking my way through Europe (Switzerland, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Ireland, Scotland, Wales to name a few). Next stop USA for 7 years, namely, New Hampshire; New York; Massachusetts; New Mexico; Nevada (Las Vegas) & California (Los Angeles)….yes I really have lived in each of those States….like I said I’m a bit of a gypsy *wink*IMG_1596 DSCN0904 IMG_0314  IMG_0326

What was supposed to be a gap year, turned out to be a gap decade 🙂

Though I’m very glad to be home in my beautiful Mother City, Cape Town – South Africa, my itchy feet has me constantly discovering new hidden little gems in my own backyard.IMG_0828

Wether it be a divine new coffeeshop or a roadtrip up the coast to a sublimely tucked away guesthouse or wine farm I’m always game for an adventure!
