Hello! Howzit! Hoe gaan it?

I was born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa where Table Mountain was the part of the backdrop of every day.

My love of language started young, and the first story I remember writing was about an elephant when I was just eight. I had created a magazine about elephants in the shape of an elephant face!

Reading one of daily pursuits and one of my life's greatest joys. The power of storytelling never gets old. Only a book can take to places that surpass time. Not much can compare to the magic of being sucked into a book, and for a while, walking beside the characters you meet there in their realm of time and place.

I took my first overseas trip when I was 17 and it changed my life forever. And every trip still does.

This blog is a record of some of the most significant journeys I've taken IRL (In Real Life) and as a reader.
