I love to travel. It is simply who I am. From an armchair watching DSTV, or taking my trusty Honda Jazz out on the South African roads, or heading out to a country that grabs my interest. I love learning about the world and how everyone lives – and I love experiencing it first-hand. I am young and able, so I plan to travel to a new country every year for as long as I am physically able to. My other love is language. I get very excited about phonetics and the socio-linguistic habits of different cultures, and of course I proofread every single menu/signpost/newspaper/TV headline and joyously point out the spelling mistakes! However, this blog is more about the travels I’ve done recently, with the good cultural experiences thrown in – in a very unserious way.
