Big news and updates in this little blogger’s life

Happy Monday to you all.

A new day, a new week, a fresh start.

Apologies for being quiet lately. I flew back from Nassau, Bahamas to Fort Lauderdale last night after resigning from my position as 2nd Stewardess on M/Y Emelina. I decided to finally listen to my intuition, believe in my skills and talents and to follow my true path to happiness.

I am very excited about heading home to Cape Town, South Africa, in two weeks’ time. I have worked hard over the past three years to be able to set myself up comfortably. I can’t wait to spend quality time with my friends and family, find an awesome new job (, buy a car and nest in a cosy apartment. Yes please!

But first, I need to scratch my travel itch. I have booked flights to go on a holiday to Nicaragua. I plan to surf, do yoga, explore, sip drinks while soaking up the sunset and meeting like-minded travelers. I will also need to try and remember some Spanish phrases. Je je je.

Also, a reminder about my Treevolution project – please buy a tree. The organizers at Greenpop contacted me to say that trees are now R100 which is less than $10 so please help me in reducing our carbon footprint and donate now.

Lou, my music angel of the day, sent me a link to Ben Howard’s song ‘Keep Your Head Up’ to help me swiftly adapt to these new positive changes in my life. Watch the video and appreciate the awesome lyrics. I think Ben Howard’s music is going to be my Nicaragua soundtrack.

All I was searchin’ for was me…

May you find happiness there,
May all your hopes all turn out right.

Keep your head up, keep your heart strong.

  1. Good on ya! I have a friend who was chief stew (for a brief moment in time) on Emelina many, many, years ago. It didn’t last long for a multitude of reasons. It sounds as though you’ve made the right decision for yourself. The great thing about yachting – you can always leave, and always come back if you miss it!

      Yeah it is a handful with live aboard owners for five months at a time.Ive been offered two chief stew positions since there but it’s not for me right now

      Thanks for your kind words. It is comforting to know that yachting is something that I can go back to if need be. For now, it’s time for a holiday before starting my next chapter. 🙂
