I’m a runner, eater, drinker, party girl, cat lady who has made Dubai home.
Originally from South Africa, I moved over to the UAE in 2008 to earn some money and then go home, buy a house and a car and carry on living… but I ‘accidentally’ stayed in Dubai and have since fallen in love with the place. I spend my time trying to better myself at running, followed by drinking lots and lots of beer, spending quality time with friends, travelling as much of the world as I can, loving my cats, and somewhere in between all of that I make a living too. Oh, and then there’s this blog 🙂
Over time my blog has re-shaped itself and currently I focus largely on my weekly photo challenges and my 52 New Things challenges, and I try throw in as much chit chat about my running as I can (which usually ends up being part of the 52 New Things!)
I began the 52 New Things challenge in 2015 where I set out to do something new each week of the year. These included trying new foods, travelling to new destinations, getting my first tattoo, learning, exercise , building up my running, plus many, many more.
Now that it’s 2017 I will once again be challenging myself to take up something new each week of the year! You can access all of my New Things by clicking on the link in the menu bar at the top of this page 🙂
