We currently reside in Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa. Since I do Africa, we’ve also doubled in numbers after the birth of their son, Renier, and daughter, Amia.

Apart from our day jobs, we also run beautiful self catering cottages called Umoya Cottages – meaning wind in isiXhosa – named after the Windy City which we live in.

We still take regular trips in and outside of South Africa’s borders so keep and eye on the blog for news about our travels. Our previous international destination was Morocco. Next up is Réunion!
