About me

I enjoy living in the countryside of Southern Africa, currently in the Govuro district of Mozambique. I am married and live with my husband, our daughter and an arrangement of pets. Read the articles specifically relating to our lives in Mozambique here>>Mozambique

I started blogging in 2014 as a way to count my blessings and share a life that so many city dwellers wish for. A life away from the rat-race, with time for sunsets and time to stop and smell the proverbial roses. >>The Start

My all-time top posts are the series I wrote on the raising of Crocuta a Spotted Hyena pup that we had the privilege to raise. You can read the series here >>Crocuta 

Every week I interview someone living in the Countryside of Southern Africa. I love bringing you people stories, people are what ultimately makes me tick. >>Country People

Another weekly feature is my Trailcam posts. I hide a motion-triggered camera on the farm and show what I find on Tuesdays. >>Trailcamming

I also like writing about environmentally sustainable life in Afrikaans. You can find the posts here. >>Volhoubare Leefstyl

If I get the chance to travel and visit the city I bring you stories of restaurants, places, events and loads of coffee. Coffee makes the world go round. Read my travel stories here. >>Travel

    What a gorgeous and generous blog! I love the pictures, the words and the thoughts! It’s magic!
    May I ask what camera you typically use? The photos are fantastic! If you’re not already doing so, I recommend you create a profile on NG “your pic” – you get nice feedback and it’s a lovely photo community.
    Great work! Looking forward to more of it! 🙂

    Nice to see this blog! Homesteading is something we are also passionate about. We are a family of 6 living in northern Mozambique on a one hectare sustainable farm. We haven’t documented our journey like you have……but it has been epic and a great learning experience!

      Thank you so much for popping in! I love to hear from other people living in Mozambique. Which province are you in? Are you very remote?

        Nampula Province…..Rapale District. Remote enough. :)…..about 45 minutes from Nampula city center. However, we are “in the bush” and living off grid.
