What I…. 

Árbol de Piedra (Iga)


You create your own reality!

Skiing, Szczyrk, Poland

Laguna Colorada, Bolivia


Travelling, photography, Instagram, mushroom picking in forests (it’s a Polish tradition) and the seaside.

I love being in nature

Lying on the grass to reconnect with the earth, especially when I’ve been in the city for too long.

Machu Picchu, Peru La Paz, Bolivia


I love suspending my disbelief through magical realism. I started reading Haruki Murakami’s Wind Up Bird Chronicles on the ferry from Busan, South Korea to Fukuoka, Japan – I always try to read local literature when visiting a country. I have now read most of his books.

Call me a nerd, and perhaps it’s my journalistic background, but I also really enjoy reading non-fiction, especially when it comes to random facts about the natural world. I’m always like: “Did you know that…”

Golden Pavilion, Kyoto, Japan

Isla de Sol, Bolivia


That’s a tough one to answer: I moved in early June and realised that I don’t need or even use half of the things I own, so I don’t want for much besides my next adventure.

There’s no country I wouldn’t want to visit and photograph! So I guess I’ll put travel, camera equipment and good health on that list!

Lake Titicaca, Peru


If I had things my way I would wear lace and crocheted clothes every day. I also love vintage, paisley, floral designs and earthy colours.

Sailing around Istria, Croatia

Halla San Nature Reserve, Jeju Island, South Korea


to experience the world through the eye’s of child again, with lots of curiosity.

Kathryn is a South African lifestyle blogger and mom of 2 who has been blogging daily for over 9 years! She writes about travel, health, beauty, fashion, decor and family... but not food (unless it's food she's eaten made by someone else) as she is a hopeless cook. She only wakes up early for 2 things... a red-eye flight to somewhere exotic and early morning game drives. She has just finished an extensive home renovation and would prefer to never see another box again. She's never met a chocolate or glass of bubbles that she didn't like!
