Karolien – There's Life After Kids

#Mauritius - Doing The Expat Thing

Bio for Karolien – There’s life after kids


Jane of all trades, mistress of none is probably the best way to describe me. I try absolutely everything at least once and can probably one day write a book about it. Successes and fails alike.

Mother of two, wife of one. Self-taught techie, wannabe blogger, crazy creative, website owner and so much more I would like to think. It took me years to see how much I could do and now I enjoy doing it all! 🙂

Born and bred Capetonian I have lived all around the shorelines of South Africa, spanning from Lüderitz in Namibia to Richards Bay in Natal. Taught primary school and preschool for the past almost 8 years as it suited my lifestyle with a work-away hubby and alone with two kids.

Resigned that stressful job recently 😉 and now doing what I love most. Technology, socializing, networking, being creative, social media, trying my hand at blogging and other new things. It challenges me on all levels.

Love doing some woodwork or anything creative in my spare time and a good book is always a must! Lover of red wine and cocktails and not big on diets as I love food way too much!!

My blogging journey is fairly new and I am heading towards an empty nest soon so I am embracing the changes that comes with it however hard it is at times.

We are all woman, whether we are mothers, aunts, grandmothers, godmothers, sisters, daughters, wives and we are all on our own journey at our own speed and with our own dramas and happenings. I hope you enjoy reading some of mine.
