Sweet Potato & Chickpea Coconut Curry (V, GF & Damn delish!)

The days are slowly getting colder here in France and storm season is in full swing. The nights are breezy and mornings come with a fresh chill in the air. In fact, the past few nights have been crazy windy and there’s a mistral on its way (the name for a big storm over the…

Home is Where the Heart is – The Côte d’Azur

They say there’s no place like home and it’s true. But what happens if you’re so nomadic that you don’t have a home? No set place to call your own. It’s a strange feeling, but home is in fact where your heart is. And I have to say, my heart is scattered in fragments across…

September Mornings – What I’m Eating.

The reality is that I rarely know what day it is. Sometimes I genuinely forget what time of year it even is. I may sound like a spoilt brat saying this but it does all merge into one when the sun is (almost) always shining and summer is seemingly endless. I’m not ashamed to admit…

Adventures Ahead

As fast as the world is spinning is as fast as I’ve been moving lately. There has been so much going on that every time I grab a few minutes to myself is to mindlessly sit, lay or stand staring at my phone aimlessly. I’ve been low on energy for anything other than what’s been…

Amalfi

We’ve all heard about it. We’ve seen photos and we’ve got an idea of what this coastline is all about, but in reality, we have no idea until we actually visit. It was one of the first places I heard about when I met my husband. He told me all about his job, his life…

Fresh & Fruity Fennel Salad

I’m not going to lie, I’m not a huge fan of eating fennel myself. I don’t like that aniseed flavour in anything, especially not in Turkish Raki or Greek Ouzo that I was recently introduced to through my travels. Perhaps it has something to do with a whole bottle of Sambuca I drank on the…

Keeping busy

I’m sure nobody’s been missing me, but I’m going to go ahead and apologise anyway for going awol the past couple of weeks. As I mentioned before, we were moving the boat from Greece to Italy and had friends with us. We were enjoying our two weeks of downtime and exploring a little & then…

La Vie at Sea

Living on the water is a fun and interesting way of traveling. Getting paid to do it is even better. We have guests on board and go at full steam to make their onboard experience the best, and then when they leave we have time to unwind, enjoy the boat a little as our home…

Gratitude.

When you’re so wrapped up in the rat race and the happenings of your day to day life, it can be hard to step back and realise how lucky you are to have what you have. It can be the small things. Perhaps we take something for granted that maybe we shouldn’t. All of it…

Simple Slaw

I have trouble getting the hubby to eat any kind of vegetable, he’s a typical South African man who loves meat, potatoes and a good sauce. Being married to somebody with such a different diet to my own is strange, sometimes tough, it’s frustrating but I’m used to it now. I just try to sneak…
