Aussie Footsteps




When I lived in the Netherlands I used to “hop on the bikes” with the kids and “peddle” to the countryside so we could enjoy the birds, cows and horses. The dikes and the wide open spaces with the wind going through your hair was a favourite of us. We used to spend many hours at the beach to collect all sorts of little creatures and shells. At home, I had to check my daughter’s pants before throwing them in the wash because she used to collect worms etc and shove them into her pockets. Many worms I saved this way to the great dislike of my daughter because “she wanted to keep them”.

A thousand kilometres ago we started our journey in Johannesburg and now we approach the end of our trip and the start of a new adventure. After a short drive into Gonubie we arrived at the Harzenberg residence. The first thing we noticed were huge walls and gates around the property. After visiting Judilie and her family in Bloemfontein we were already aware that this was the South African way of living.

Over the years, Greg and I have travelled the world to present at various conventions and to help set up different organisations in their field. Many people have asked us what it is like to visit other countries and what it is like to embrace other cultures, languages, and so on. In more than two decades we visited over 40 countries and met so many beautiful people which gave me the idea of sharing these precious moments abroad with you all.
