Who wants to watch me fly like a penguin…???!!! 😱

Yes, that’s what it says…. Why, you may ask since neither penguins nor I can fly. Well… it’s that time again when I’m getting all excited about my next trip to Africa! I will be going to South Africa again in January and in the 7 weeks I’ll be there, I will travel from Durban to Cape Town by Baz Bus (Baz Bus) with a 4 week stop in Port Elizabeth. Here I’ll be volunteering with the penguins of course,... View Article

Molweni abahlobo!

Finally! My trip to Africa is now booked (and confirmed…)! I travel to South Africa at the end of January and will of course volunteer –  first with the cute little African penguins (who probably also have a nasty bite if they don’t like something – thereof the name Jackass Penguins perhaps, and the reason for the Grumpy sign…) and then with cheetahs and African wild dogs! I’m so excited! I’ve already started the countdown. 😉 As usual I will have a few causes I hope... View Article

Africa 2015

Hello all! Only one month until I´ll  be on my way to Africa! I´m soooooo excited!! Wonder if I can start packing yet… And maybe I have to start wearing only the clothes I will not wear in Africa so I´m sure nothing I´m bringing is in the dirty laundry a day before I leave or something… Crisis! Then again, I won´t be bringing that much (I hope…)- only the necessary stuff. They actually have shops on the African continent... View Article

It is also a great way to escape your daily life and just dream. That is why I want to start a mobile library for the wonderful people on the island of Zanzibar.... View Article

Burundi Refugees

Hello good people of the world! I have now added a new cause because of the political turmoil in Burundi. Burundi people who are against the current government and the fact that they have decided to have a third term are being threatened. This has caused an unsuccessful attempt at a coup and uproar in the capital Bujumbura and tens of thousand of people have fled the country. A lot of them have managed to flee to the neighbouring country... View Article

Birthday Blog

My day started really early when Carmen, one of the nice people looking after me (read: putting up with... View Article

Mambo Rafiki!

My first blog on my own website! Whooohoooo! I promise I will not bother you too much with this blogging thing as it will not be an everyday blog about all my handbags, shoes and clothes, but more of a blog about my future trips to Africa and what I´ll do there (apart from buying African handbags, shoes and clothes…), and I might pop in and tell you if something exciting (exciting to me at least) has happened. I am... View Article
