about me

time zones of the world…my body can't keep up!

Being from the Southern most point of Africa, traveling to anywhere is quite an adventure. Luckily for me, my family took me on holidays to Europe from when I was a child, and the wanderlust has been with me ever since.

I am now 27 years old! Last year, I quit my job and flew to Argentina with no plan, I just wanted to go explore. I wanted something more fulfilling than an 8-5 job and a 2 week vacation. The past year has taken me to Argentina, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Brazil and Australia where I’ve volunteered in hostels, learnt some basic spanish, worked on a banana farm, climbed mountains, learnt to surf, and met the most inspiring people. I’ve recently returned home to the beautiful city of Cape Town, for a timeout, and a reassessment on life. And now to decide, what next…

So, read my stories, let me know what you think, and follow me on the next part of my adventure.

Come be a happy wandering earth child with me.



  1. Hi,

    My name is KC Owens; I’m a college student who loves to travel! While cruising the Internet, I found Purple Wanderlust and really enjoyed reading your posts. Personally, I think traveling is a necessary part of life as you’re exposed to all sorts of new cultures and experiences. While enjoying time abroad, I’ve found it’s crucial to fully understand the dangers that you might encounter along the way. These mishaps are part of life and certainly part of travel but it’s always a great idea to take preventive measures to help ensure your safety while abroad.

    I was hoping that you would allow me to write a post for your site to share my travel safety tips with your readers? I put a lot of time and passion into my traveling and I would love to help others by offering safety advice as a result of the mistakes and triumphs I’ve had. I look forward to hearing from you!
