Returning home

Can't wait to see 'my kids' again

I've always said that the Netherlands is my home country and that I have several places in this world that I call home.  'Home is where the heart is' could be a phrase for my memoire;  I've been blessed to be able to travel around and meet people who have become friends and some whom I even consider as my family. I'm about to return to one of the places that I call home: Cape Town.

I lived in Cape Town for about nine months in 2008. I was there for an internship for my Social Work study. I  went  there to do research and fulfill a course task for my studies, but never did I expected to gain so much from this journey. I was overwhelmed by the beauty of the country and its people.

My daily South African view: the magnificent Table Mountain

Now, after four years, it is the right time for me to return. A lot has happened in my life since I said farewell to my Cape Tonian family and I didn't want this to intervene with the fond memories that I have of my South African home. Now I feel that it is the perfect timing for me to reunite with the people who I love so dearly.

As I have difficulties of letting things go, letting my -now former- work go has been weighing on my heart, it is a good thing that I will get some closer by going to South Africa. I'm about to leave to the airport and I cannot wait to see all 'my kids' and family again.

Seriously can't wait to share many more special moments with them

Enjoy your summer… I'll keep you posted from my beloved Kaapstad.
