South Africa

Last Friday, I returned home from ten incredible, life-changing weeks in South Africa. I've been back in the UK for less than a week and I already miss the sun (I hate British weather!). On the plus side, I have wifi and Netflix again.

South Africa is beautiful and I had some wonderful experiences. I met some of the warmest, spiritual, and beautiful people who helped me grow so much.

Here are a few photos:

 By Durban beach. (This picture doesn't do it enough justice)

 Standard monkey waiting for food.

Monkeys raiding the bin for food. 

I was fortunate enough to visit this beautiful little tourist attraction close to the accommodation.
It was full of quirky little gift shops selling puzzles, jewellery, crystals, etc. It also had a lovely little restaurant overlooking a breathtaking view.

Again, this picture doesn't do the scenery justice and, unfortunately, the weather wasn't great (for South African standards anyway), but the view is still beautiful.

Love this ...

The charity I volunteered for is Tearfund - a Christian charity that helps combat poverty across the globe. Volunteering for this amazing charity helped me rediscover my faith and re-evaluate my lifestyle and, let's be honest, changed my life. To find out more about the ICS programme, click here. 


  1. Oh wow!! What an amazing experience!! I know the feeling of needing something new and exciting in your life.

    Thank you for stopping by on my blog hun :) and enjoy the blogging community x


  2. Wow that is amazing what you did :) I've been watching so many YouTube videos about South Africa, it seems like such a beautiful place! I've just applied to volunteer abroad for 3 months x


  3. I take my hat off to you for doing what many of us are far too scared to do! Now you have memories of an experience that will last a lifetime x


Poundland Nail Polishes

When I moved out of my last flat I realised that every single nail polish I owned had gone gloopy and I'd only used them once or twice....
