South Africa’s West CoastRead more
From South Africa to Indonesia, the Seychelles to Amsterdam I have lived, worked and travelled all across the world. Here are some of my favourites.
I’m proud to call Cape Town my home town. It truly does have everything – amazing restaurants, world-class vineyards, stunning beaches and wildlife, plus its own mountain!
I ran my own adventure company here, where I was able to show others my passion for the outdoors on hot air balloon safaris, surf lessons, and sand dune discovery in Namibia.
Living in Amsterdam gave me a totally different perspective of this buzzy city. The locals are so warm and friendly and there’s so much to do and see from palaces to bicycle rides, even canoeing!
There’s plenty of outdoor space – Vondelpark is great for a BBQ. That said, culturally the city is amazing for wandering with its Dutch architecture, canals and museums such as Anne Franks house and Van Gogh.
Thailand has a special place in my heart as it has so much natural beauty and opportunity to enjoy it. Although it was over 15 years ago now, I have such clear memories of my sun-soaked tropical holiday.
I was drawn to its islands and loved the way you could drift from one to the other. I spent an amazing week on Koh Chang, at the legendary TreeHouse where everyone would gather at the bar which jutted out over the sea.
Wherever I travel I try to get out on the water or into nature and these are where my best travel experiences have occurred. One that stands out is a wild white rafting trip I took up the Orange River in South Africa, where we camped by the river cooking over the fire, under a billion stars. Learning to scuba dive in the pristine waters around Koh Tao was amazing, and facilitated fantastic experiences in the Seychelles and Croatia opening my eyes to a whole new world underwater.
