mud in october

Oppi Koppi Music Festival – usually known for its dust and heat decided it was gonna be a little different this year. Instead of dust there was rather a shit ton of rain which meant mud and shongolos (which resulted in me crying and having my heart beat faster than it needs to). I cried…

playing tourist in the north of portugal

Luckily for me, I was able to have a sneaky look at what the North of Portugal was like. Oddly enough it was very different. The people are still just as friendly but it’s so wonderfully green and natury and majestic that I was left in awe. I got to meet a little old Portuguese…

lets get lost in lagos

The title perfectly describes my adventures in the South of Portugal. From using shower gel as a body cream, basically falling in every little city I visited and getting hit on by all the golden oldies. I spent roughly 3 and a half weeks laughing till I couldn’t breathe with Keanu, Dino (Keanu’s brother), their…

summary of washington

The one thing I missed about being home (South Africa) is the summer sun and was super looking forward to seeing it when I got home. However, mother nature had thought that maybe I hadn’t received enough of the cloudy weather and so decided to make me wait a bit till I could see the…

snow (& lots of it)

Coming from South Africa, I barely experience any form of snow and if we do its so little that we still have to go to school. Whilst being here in Washington, I have experienced snow and felt so young that i was going to lay in the ground and make a snow angel. Here are…

seattle part 2

After spending almost a month now living like the locals, I decided to dedicate my day to being an absolute tourist. Visiting the amazing sites of the Space Needle, Glass Museum, Pikes Place Market (again), Gum Wall and literally just walked around to my heart’s content and absorbing things around me. We started the day nice…

port townsend, wa

Sometimes in life you have to let things upset you and steer your plan out of the way to actually have a good time – weird I know but something I’ve learned today. I was upset and then by the end of the day I was smiling more than I think I would have if…

seattle – part 1

The city on a hill – not only do you get a kicker of a workout but being in this beautiful city but you get to fulfill you little curious mind of what this city has to offer with a long-lasting smile on your face at the end of the day. So as you know…

journeys in the forest

Washington is a very green-friendly state that has lovely rivers, dams and hiking trails in which you can take. Growing up in a city doesn’t give me (maybe you too) much opportunities to go exploring (especially by being a girl who loves the outdoors but isn’t a big fan of bugs) The journey started off…

mora – yummy ice cream

As you could tell by my other posts about ice cream you probably have a good idea of how much I love ice cream and so the first thing I did after attempting to master this jet-lag was to get a nice scoop of Mora Ice Creamery – the ice cream that has been bragged about on the…
