Relax, enjoy, explore the area. Smoking is OK outside under the Patio. Vaping is OK inside.
Born in Germany of a British Army Family. As a child I traveled A LOT, went to many different schools, so was pretty much thrown into meeting new people every couple of years. I expect this is why I enjoy communication and people.
One thing I so enjoy, is getting the cottage prepared for visitors. I think I have a good knowledge of our area, especially the Kruger National Park. I love it when our visitors cant wait to tell us of their animal sightings and how excited they are, or they ask where they should visit and what to see. Hopefully our guests feel relaxed and comfortable in the Cottage. Its a very private place set within its own gardens, far enough away from the main house to feel completely alone.
I myself, love to travel locally, I so enjoy the Kruger National Park. Mozambique and Swaziland are also favorites (being so close). I personally believe that we live in the best part of South Africa, the weather is good, the people are great, the landscape is stunning, what more could one want.
The things I cant live without is my partner (both in business and in life) My family (who don't live in the same country as me). My Dogs, Cat and Bird (They are the children in our lives now). Our employees (where would our business be without them?). My music (that's my relaxation).
