Maldives, Dubai, Madrid – What A Week!

I am so tired. SO TIRED! I’ve had the most incredible week, seeing the most beautiful things and exhausting myself in great YOLO fashion. I want to tell you more, really I do. But my bed is calling my name, my eyelids are cursing me and I’m pretty sure my insta’s speak for themselves. Time is flying (literally), and looking back at the week I have just had, the nerves are beginning to kick in as I have just over two months left till I move back to Cape Town. So much to send home, so much to leave behind, so much to see, so much to look forward to. The only thing more impossible than leaving this life behind would be staying in it much longer. My definition of “normal” is quite ridiculous. xx

DUBAI, TRAVEL / Wednesday / January 9th, 2013


Happy New Year, everyone!

So I haven’t posted in a while but by now you know I’m travelling full-time/working/girlfriend/best friend/sleep-deprived/constantly mall-trawling, trying to live a kind of normal life. I’m trying to feel less guilty about it.

Last week I had 4 days off and decided to join my best friend, Aisha, and her family on their vaycay to Dubai, just in time for the crazy Dubai Shopping Fest! We ate, giggled, shopped, danced, indulged in our silliness and talked that deep talk. We hadn’t seen each other for six months and we cried like babies when we did. But then we got past that part of the dramatics we were amazed at how we hadn’t even grown an inch apart. True friends are the family you choose for the mere fact that they’re irreplaceable and it doesn’t fade. Any possibility for envy or competition gets wiped out by the love you have for that person as you celebrate their success as your own, and your loyalty is unparalleled.

For those who always loved our silly shenanigans and commented/tweeted/emailed us about it, we want to know… did you miss us? ;)
