An invitation to wander through my memories with me, from the remotest part of South Africa through the pulsating cities of Hong Kong, Tripoli and Abu Dhabi, to the awe-inspiring green hills of West Cork in Ireland. Along the way I said good bye to pieces of my heart, but I also gained many wonderful souls that'll be in my life forever. This is my story.



Short Summary

The book follows my life story from an idyllic childhood in South Africa through to my travels as an adult to Hong Kong, Ireland, Libya, the Middle East and back to settle in Ireland again. Along the way there is heartbreak and hardship, but also untold joy and pleasure.
