That time I was detained at the airport in Cape Town, South Africa

My priority during my nomadic journey? Making sure I do not do anything to be deported, arrested or anything illegal. That is so important especially if one wants to keep moving from one country to the next, whether it is for work or tourism-related purposes. It is safe to say that I have all my ducks in a row when it comes to boarding a plane. Or so I think I

Waking up on the first day of the year and setting intentions

I hope you are one of those people who feel immensely thankful to be alive when you open your eyes each morning. This makes even more sense upon waking up on the first day as the year begins. It is a precious moment indeed. That moment when you open your eyes, realize where you are and feel your heart beating. That moment when you can see, either timid sun rays or the

Celebrating all Cape Town Content Creators #CTCCX2016

Like mentioned in my series Life of A Blogger, I’m a team of ONE person. I handle various ‘departments’ and have to be a jack-of-all-trades. There’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes of creating content for any blog. If you’re a blogger, you’ll be nodding your head knowingly. We bloggers don’t get a 13th check at the end of the year, heck sometimes we don’t even get a

That one time I went glamping with Africamps (and what happened with my tent)

Camping? Me? Straighten that eyebrow – you’re in for a treat filled with style and sophistication. I promise. Read on, dear readers. Read on. When you get a call from Africamps inviting you for two days and one night of camping for the launch of their third camp, it’s a tough decision. I’m not the type of girl who camps. However, they specialize in boutique camping. Glamping takes camping to another level, we all agree?

My challenge as a digital nomad in the South African summer time

With the mercury rising and traffic increasing along all roads that lead to the beach, there’s a lot on my social calendar. Most of my friends from Europe (and various parts of the world) come back to South Africa to enjoy sunny days here. And a mother bunch of them visit because I’ve been going on and on and on and on about how fabulous Cape Town is. So they

What is a friendship celebration and why you should have one too {GIVEAWAY}

I’m not fond of goodbyes. Are you? I’ve had one goodbye too many during my nomadic journey. Through this though, I realized that there’s an art when it comes to saying goodbye. There’s no reason why we should avoid saying goodbye. However, we can do things differently. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know that’s one thing I love doing. Shifting my perspective, challenging the status quo, asking

Saturday bliss: reading at The Book Lounge and hot chocolate at Haas

Lately, I’ve been craving reading in my spare time. Unless I make it a priority, I find that a lot of other activities often get in the way. Are you also like that? Do you find that you want to read a book but can never get to it? Making time to read One technique is to treat it as a priority and not letting anything hijack the time you’ve

My cats – what I miss the most on my nomadic journey

I adopted these two furry balls of cuteness – The Royal Kittens. Or so I thought, until I realized they were the ones who adopted me. Cats are a different sort of species altogether, really. They come with baggage. And you have to accept them and take them all in, quirks and all. In my case, I took them in with fleas, bruises, little fur and acute anxiety. They were

Restaurant Review: Nomad Bistro Fusion

With a restaurant that bears my name, how could I resist the allure of eating there? Therefore, you can imagine how thrilled and excited I was to be invited by the co-owners, Mohit Sureka and Chef Mardia Swartz for an exclusive tasting before they opened officially. (I felt honoured!). Wherever there’s food, I’m there. And it didn’t disappoint, in fact there were so many delicious dishes that I couldn’t pick my

Restaurant Review: Scheckter’s Raw

Ever since becoming more mindful of what I put inside my body, my choices in where I go eat out have become more selective. And so, what a delight that Scheckter’s Raw recently opened up in Sea Point (Cape Town), serving organic vegan food made with love. The first time I went there, I grabbed a salad from the fridge to peck on while waiting for the real order: Organic Lucuma Hummus and
