Hi. I am Carmen.
A little bit of information about me.
I live in the Midlands of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa. It is a truly special and beautiful place to live. Farmlands and pastoral vistas with rolling green hills and valleys crying out to be explored.
I have lived in KZN for the majority of my life albeit with some visits throughout South Africa and abroad. I am a Social Media Marketer by occupation and enjoy fly fishing, travelling and stirring some mischief with friends occasionally.
This blog is a place where I revisit some of the amazing places and spaces I get to frequent. The idea of starting a blog occurred to me after some friends were visiting and wanted some help finding their way around our wonderful Midlands Meander arts, crafts and eateries and had no idea where to go. So I decided to put some thoughts down both for the Meander and wherever I may end up visiting along with some of the anecdotes that go with it.
I guess my writing style is a little quirky, but I would categorise my blog as a Travel and Lifestyle blog overall. I love roadtrips and meeting new people that inhabit the new places I see along the way. Along with this, good food with good company is something that makes me smile and I cover reviews of restaurants, diners and coffee shops that are speckled like little gems along my journeys.
If you happened upon this blog by complete accident, welcome. If you arrived here through a more purposeful search, congratulations and welcome. Either way, as you can see, I am pleased to meet your acquaintance. To quote JRR Tolkein, “Not all those who wander are lost“.
So in my Meanderings and musings, may you find some treasures to visit and places to see and perhaps happy memories to last a long time.
If you want to work with me, drop me a mail from my Work With Me page (click here).
See you on the road…
