I’m an insatiably curious person, and I take pleasure in discovering and writing about where I live, and where I travel. I was born in Cape Town and brought up there, but my professional life was spent in England. In 2009 I came to live in McGregor. As there is only a limited amount written down about the early days of the village, and both residents and visitors don’t easily get to know about it, I became intrigued - and embarked on this VoiceMap project.
