Second month!

The second month is almost over! This blog is 2 months old. The last two months have been an exciting time of learning and sharing. I hope that you’ve enjoyed these last two months with me and that it has brightened your day to read about this amazing continent we call Africa. It has a lot of offer from great food to and amazing heritage. Writing some of my posts was a trip down memory lane and others a look at the future. Writing about Namibia made me miss it a lot. When I wrote about Johannesburg I realized again what a great city it is. Meeting new people was a highlight and I hope to meet many more.

If this is your first time here-get something to drink and relax…you are in Africa now!

Hope you enjoy your stay and please do come back 🙂

Who am I and why am I here?

Let me introduce myself. My name is Amanda Calitz and I am a follower of Jesus Christ, a wife, a daughter, a sister, and a friend. I am a teacher and I love my job. I live in Johannesburg, South Africa.

I’ve decided to write this blog because I LOVE traveling and meeting new people. The aim of my blog is to introduce others to the beautiful continent that I live on.

Welcome and make yourself comfortable. It there is anything that you’d like to ask please do.

As I have been reading blogs on WordPress I’ve realized that a lot of people are looking to travel to Africa. Others are wondering what life in Africa is like. I’ve decided to shed some light on this by creating this blog with my experiences. Hope you find it useful and enjoy it.
