Hello, I am Kim.

I was born in Cape Town, South Africa and grew up in the Cape Flats. Driven by my wanderlust, I moved to London for a few years and this allowed me to travel extensively. Travelling runs through my blood and am always looking for places to visit and things to do both locally, and abroad.

I am currently based in Cape Town and decided to start a blog to share some of my life and travel experiences. I studied Architectural Technology, so buildings and beautiful spaces always feature in my posts.

As a self confessed chocoholic, I am always on the lookout for good chocolate or decadent chocolate treats. This obsession with chocolate definitely started when I visited Germany as an exchange student, and I have loved good chocolate ever since.

I live to travel and my lifestyle revolves around finding ways to save for my next trip! Growing up in a working class community, there where very few people who where able to travel locally, overseas or go on a trip to the city. My uncle, who worked as a seaman, would come home and tell fabulous travel stories of his experiences and it would transport me to a different world. At a young age, I made it one of my life goals to not be limited by my circumstances, so that I could experience the wonder of travel and break cultural barriers. To all aspiring travellers, anything is possible if you set yourself goals. I hope my blog inspires you to do and see more. After all, You Only Live Once!
