Just a girl from a small town born in Namibia. Home language is Afrikaans and not a writer. But is living life to its fullest, travel more than the average person and got so many stories to tell. 

A Blog where I can share a bit of my interesting but humble life! Hopefully can touch you, inspire you and most of all give you a smile on your face when you read my so "incorrect" letters.. 

Goals for 2018 is to write more regular as 2017 just ran away from me and somewhere amongst the crazy events I have lost myself... not in a bad way but was basically just surviving to keep it up. 

2018 focus will be to say more NO and to be racing fit again!!
