I am a well travelled South African on a 12 month journey through South America to work with non-profit organisations and to experience the continent and its people. I aim to work on community development and eco projects while I travel and to get some ideas for my own business eventually in South Africa.
I am passionate about cultures, languages and meeting interesting people from all over the world. I am quite laid back as most South Africans are and like to live in the moment, just appreciating and experiencing the here and now as much as I can.
I love adventure sports including scuba diving and mountain biking. I did some ice diving and snowboarding this year and want to learn rock climbing next. At the opposite end of the scale I also teach yoga and meditation in my spare time and between these extremes I have a happy balance.
I can't live without my passport, my backpack and my yoga mat. For the moment I am totally addicted to travel and love yoga. I can live without many other comforts, but these are an absolute must in my life.
As for the rest I love cooking and food, I eat vegetarian food most of the time, but appreciate local dishes as it forms such an important part of a culture and community.
I am not a big TV or movie watcher, I prefer the great outdoors, books and good music and my taste here varies between people's recommendations on the road.
