About Me

Enlightened Musings of a Tattooed Wanderer

What Type of Blog Is This?

Good Question! I have no idea. I usually write about travelling and life.

This is my little space on the interweb. I share information about the places I visit, the things I experience and, most importantly how I grow as a person because of all my wonderful travels and adulting. This blog is about the mistakes I make during that time, the lessons I learn and how I grow as a person because of it. My written thoughts of what it is I see, of what it is I experience.

A South African perspective. 

The best form of progression is personal introspection!

Who Am I?

Oscar Wilde said that if you know what you want to be, then you inevitably become it – that is your punishment, but if you never know, then you can be anything. There is a truth to that. We are not nouns, we are verbs. I am not a thing – an actor, a writer – I am a person who does things – I write, I act – and I never know what I am going to do next. I think you can be imprisoned if you think of yourself as a noun.

― Stephen Fry

I’m a South African from Polish descent; teaching English as Foreign Language at Wits University in Johannesburg.

A person who lives to inspire others.

I paint, I write, I read a lot of epic fantasy, I travel as much as I can.

I do my best to better myself. I am constantly evolving.

I am not what I ought to be, I am not what I want to be, I am not what I hope to be in another world; but still I am not what I once used to be, and by the grace of God I am what I am
John Newton
