Cape Town South Africa

Where Is She Now


I’ll do my best to keep you updated on WHERE IN THE WORLD I am!!

In June 2017, a trip through Eastern and Southern Africa ended in South Africa, and I decided this was the place I wanted to call home. I was able to stay on a small farm just outside of Port Elizabeth for the next many months, working alongside some lovely friends and leading fun folk on adventure tours around the area (check out Freewalker Adventure Travel’s FB page to see what we got up to!)
I fell in love with everything about South Africa and managed to convince a school in Cape Town that I was worthy of teaching their students all about numbers and shapes. And now, I’m officially back in the classroom teaching maths!

I’ve never felt so inspired, at peace, connected, and ‘ME’ than I have in South Africa (Check out this video I put together of highlights of my time there so far: Miss Maps South Africa). PS..that white thing I’m holding and am so clearly excited about is an oyster, fresh from / IN the sea 🙂


A few months have passed since the big return, and I am looking forward to all that is to come. This is the best place I’ve ever imagined to call HOME.

And visitors are welcome any time….

    Hi Annie,
    Remember what I said, if you want to go to Moscow, let me know and we’ll try and set you up to stay with Olga’s relatives. Of course given that it’s almost November, I’d start heading in a more southerly direction. We may or may not get there next year. Went to Russian consulate yesterday to straighten out the girl’s paperwork so they can get their Russian passports. It turns out little RJ may be eligible for dual citizenship as well. Enjoy and be safe!
    Lots of love,

      A year later… haha. I hope we can see each other now that we’ll be officially living on the same continent! Maybe a school conference will bring us together – or our own travels 🙂

      I’ll be there again the end of July… for three more years! We have breaks from class, so will probably travel then, but most of the time, I’ll be staying in Cape Town 🙂 Hope you can come!
