My name is Liza M Roux
Since I can remember, I have wanted to live away from the city and somewhere surrounded with nature. I am currently living my dream in the countryside of Southern Africa, in the Govuro district of Mozambique. I am married and live with my husband, our daughter and an arrangement of pets.

How did I get here. After school I studied Eco-Tourism management at the Tshwane University of Technology. After finishing my diploma I worked as an Environmental educator at WESSA for 3 years. I did front-of-house for a year at a Country Guest House in Hoedspruit and acted as lodge manager at Game Ranch in the Free State for 5 years. In the year 2017 my daughter was born and I took some time off to be with her, doing only admin work on the side. In 2018 our family moved to Mozambique when an opportunity came along.
I have authored to children’s storybooks since moving to 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
