An Elephant in my Suitcase
I am a child of Africa, born in Zimbabwe and grew up on a beautiful tobacco and cattle farm. I’ve moved countless times and do not really know where I want to put down my forever roots.
My stories are short spurts of adventures through life all over, how and where I travel, funny happenings and the harsh reality of depression who most of us have met.
You are here to escape the humdrum of life and boring chores in small bites, between hanging the washing and going to the next office meeting.
You’ll discover I am cautious though adventurous. An extroverted introvert. And, just like you, hungry to discover new things, the why of the way we feel, new cultures and countries – and hey, ho – everyday life through fresh eyes.
My packing advice is to take your passport, medical kit, credit card .. and your smile.
Glorious Istanbul, a mish mash of cultures, food, people and tourists – a place that just works whomever you are. The days of travel without complications, taking in sights, sounds and being overwhelmed by salesmen and gorgeous cats
