I?m Kelly and I moved to Johannesburg, South Africa at the end of October 2013 with my life partner Yannick. I am American however before moving to South Africa I had been living and working in France (Paris and Nice) since the year 2000. Yannick (he?s French) had been traveling to Cape Town for his job since 2010 and consequently we had been able to take several holidays to South Africa and soon discovered this was a place we would like to call home someday. When I was offered a job for the company I had been consulting for back in Nice to move to Joburg (we had never even visited the city before) we jumped on the opportunity and haven?t looked back since. I started this blog to share our adventures as we discover our new city, country and continent. Our passions include travel (especially camping and 4x4ing), photography, the great outdoors for activities such as safari and hiking as well as partaking in devouring good food (I?m a vegetarian and Yannick is very much a carnivore) and wine. We are living our new life to the max here in South Africa and I hope you enjoy a peek into the place we now call home.
I quit my job to satisfy my curiosity of exploring the world and to learn more about the NGO community in Cambodia. 2013 was the best year of my life and I have learned a lot of lessons since then.
The Zebra is a chocolate-addicted, blogloving, sometimes neurotic, belgian former working mum of two sweet little daughters! On the 13th of January 2014 we said our goodbyes in Brussels Airport and 14 hours later we landed in Dar Es Salaam: our new home for the coming three years. What should I expect of life in Tanzania? Will we like it? How will our kids do? One thing is sure, it will be an adventures experience that we won?t forget soon!
