The craziness and desire to travel started from a very young age. I went from the backseat of my parents' VW kombi to leaving South Africa in 2009 to explore South Korea and the rest of Asia. I picked up the travel bug quite fast – the unknown intrigued me and I got mesmerised by different smells, cultures, food, languages and adventures. I explored beautiful places around Asia, ate delicious Asian food, got food positioning countless times, collected Asian beer cans, did a two month cycle trip in Indonesia, fell in love with bicycle touring, studied Indonesian, taught English, ticked off items on my bucket list, added items to my bucket list, filled up a passport, met locals, lived like a local, Couchsurfed, got tattoos and developed a personal mantra to "dream, explore & discover". Currently I am residing in South Africa as a copy writer with a serious case of wanderlust, everlasting itchy feet and an adventurous heart to explore the unknown. My bicycle, panniers and passport are luring me away daily from the safe and familiar into a wandering journey, never a destination.
