I was born in Harare, Zimbabwe and then moved to South Africa in the early 80's. For the past 29 years I have been living in Berchtesgaden, Germany.
I studied zoology and botany with the intention of becoming an entomologist. At this time in South Africa, a very exciting and traumatic political period made me develop an interest in history and how it affects our future.
After backpacking around Europe for some time, I returned to South Africa and met my future (German) husband back in Cape Town. Love at first sight, a story in itself.
Four months later, I ended up in Berchtesgaden, Bavaria/Germany, where I have lived since 1990 with my husband and our four children.
Wow, what a beautiful place to live in, with the Königssee, Bavarian mountains and of course the historic sights of the Third Reich, Eagles Nest, Obersalzberg Berghof (Hitler's house), bunkers and more. I would like to share these wonderful landmarks with you, with a tailor-made tour according to your interests.
In 2011 we bought a dormant farm, which we have reactivated as an organic farm, breading domestically endangered animals that were in Berchtesgaden and the alps since a few hundred years. Mountain farming can be very challenging but also rich in cultural tradition. We continue to learn by trial and error and are enjoying our exciting journey.
