A couple of days before I left for my holiday from South Africa to Europe, a report was released, titled “The Worst (& Safest) Countries For Solo Female Travel in 2019”
Low and behold, I was leaving the most dangerous country in the world for a female solo traveller to visit, to the safest country according to the list, Spain.
I felt a sense of comfort that I was heading to a safe zone, especially because I was going to be travelling alone, but at the same time I felt incredibly sad that the country I call home is in such a bad state.
It was even more depressing to return to South Africa, with the news of more missing and murdered women – during Women’s Month of all months. It really got me down.
When Alyssa found out that there was a new L.O.L. surprise range available, she was super excited and when she found out that Prima Toys was sending her some products from the range she could not contain her excitement!
Just when collectors and fans of L.O.L. thought that it simply could not get any better, it just did! A range of brand new L.O.L.’s has landed in South Africa and are sure to thrill girls, collectors and new fans alike.
If you follow me on social media, you may have noticed that I’ve been sporting sort of a new look while travelling around in Europe. I literally let my hair down, I embraced my natural curl using Carol’s Daughter products that was sent to me.
I very seldom leave my hair to air dry as I suffer from headaches if my hair is left wet for too long. Only when it’s extremely warm weather, I would let my hair dry naturally. Temperatures were 30 degrees plus most days while I was on holiday. This made for the perfect opportunity for me to make use of the products.
Once Kurt and I became parents, we had to move so many things around in our lives. Gone were the days of spontaneous travel and nights out. It just takes so much planning to make things like this happen when you have kids, not to mention – double the cost!
If we want to do anything without the kids these days, we have to arrange a babysitter. Also, as working parents we always have the thought and guilt of not spending enough time with our kids!
But after some thought and as you may have read in my previous post, there’s nothing wrong with only wanting to travel with your family, but there’s also absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to travel on your own.
