You did what?....

What's it like to return to South Africa after 20 years away? Dunno...but we're about to find out!


Hi Folks, I'm Lauren, and I'm chronicling our journey back to South Africa.


It's a long story but here's the quick sound byte:  We bought a small guest farm in the Western Cape, on the Karoo border, beyond the Cederberg mountains.


This is not your average expat move back home, we're turning life as we know it on its head and moving to a sheep farm, in the desert, with two little boys, and a dog. It's going to be a life-changing, wild desert life, in one of the most beautiful parts of South Africa.


They say the secret to happiness is having something to love, something to do, and something to look forward to, and that's exactly what we're trying to do - we'd love you to come along with us as we share the highs and lows on this ambitious journey back to South Africa, to live a different life and become reacquainted with the country we used to call home.

Follow our story here and on Instagram as it unfolds, let's go!
