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.
Have you ever messed up your accommodation dates? I’ll tell you how we earned that awful T’Shirt. A night of roaches, rats, bats, gnats but sadly no party hats
She watches, the Stari Most Bridge presides over history – past and present. Talk to strangers to find the hidden gems of the world. See what we found, come and walk the stone cobbled streets of Mostar, Bosnia, with me. The most beautiful small city we’ve ever visited.
Sarajevo – as I cross the River Miljacka, where east meets west, I tumble my fingers over many rusty love locks intertwined onto the bridge railings – wondering what secrets they, and the capital city of Bosnia & Herzegovina, have to share with me on this journey
