Andaman Island – Leaving on a jet plane

In all honesty, I have to admit that visiting India or surrounding areas have never really been on my bucket list of things to do before I die or grow too old to enjoy life. However, when opportunity knocks one makes sure to grab it with both hands and to make the most of the […]

To Car or Not to Car

I started my Friday a tad grumpy as I didn’t really feel like going to Port Louis for the third time in as many days but hubby rented a mini-van for a few days so as to have transport whilst prepping the boat for sea and I had to return it to the rental agents […]

Mauritius – affordable or not?

I read the posts of people wanting to leave SA and my heart breaks because I know it’s not a viable option financially or otherwise for many people BUT if you can manage to do so one can adjust your budget and live a good life. It is not impossible. We didn’t leave for the […]

Tripping down Memory Lane – Agulhas in 2017

Every now and then hubby and myself take a few days off without the kids to explore some or other weird and wonderful place. This trip was in the winter of 2017 and we went to one of my old time favorites as a child. Agulhas. Where you find the ‘TIP’ of Africa. Enroute the […]

Daily Ramblings – Molded by our experiences

I read a post the other day on Steemit about the fact that we are molded by our experiences. I’ve been mulling this over for the past week or so thinking of how to interpret it. Do I perceive this statement to be positive or negative? Do I want to reflect my life’s experiences? Especially […]

Random Ramblings – This Journey Called Life

I’m still within the morning hours frame this morning low and behold!! Although I’ve been thinking to rather change the heading for this to #randomramblings as I am often not in time for the morning posts that i’ve originally planned because often life gets in the way. I’ve been up and about early and decided […]

Morning Thoughts – How time flies

I am most probably one of the most UNORGANIZED/DISORGANIZED people you may ever have the (dubious) pleasure of meeting!! I do NOT plan my blogs ahead. I do NOT schedule posts! I do not have reminders on my phone! I am convinced I’ll just remember everything off the top of my head……hahahahha and I do…mostly! […]

Morning Thoughts – Instant Friends – Almost like Instant Coffee – Just Better!

It’s a dreary wet Friday on my rock but I am not complaining as I am thoroughly enjoying the cooler weather although it has a slight impact on one’s mood I must admit. It puts me in a contemplative mood and I sit and think about life. Grey weather makes me feel grey too. Especially […]
