    S3 EP4: Yacht Life

    S3 EP4: Yacht Life

    We hosted Illa (Ilanda) on the podcast late in November. She actually took the call while sitting on her bed in her cabin on the yacht just of the coast of Genoa, Italy.

    Illa left her corporate day job a few years ago and flew to the south of France at the time to explore possible opportunities to work on yachts in the Mediterranean

    Over the past few years she gained a lot of experience, made great friends and have some amazing stories to share and "yacht myths" to bust. 

    Life on the water sounds and is amazing, but it is not all about the glamour and it is certainly not a fulltime holiday!

    Tune in for this entertaining episode.

    She also share some tips during the conversation for those who would love to explore life on the yachts.

    S3 EP3: Watts In Italy

    S3 EP3: Watts In Italy

    Eduan recently caught up with Andrew and Lizette Watts.

    The Watts family (Andrew, Liz, and their daughter Emma) currently live in Italy and is in pursuit of a simpler and meaningful life in the Italian countryside.

    They traded in the hustle and bustle of city-life and corporate jobs in South Africa, for an 'adventurous slow-life' in Emilia Romagna.

    During the episode you'll hear how the Italian dream came about in the first place.

    Liz and Andrew also share stories about Emma's Italian language skills, their vegetable garden, their interesting parking solution during the winter, and they tell us about the wonderful 'Nona' who took them under her 'Italian-kitchen wing' so to speak.

    You'll also realise that like most things in life this adventure also has a few hurdles and hoops that the Watts family need to jump through and navigate from time to time (for example the Italian language and the visum/visa that they need to renew each year).

    Tune in, sit back and relax as you listen to their inspirational story :-)

    Ps. The Watts family has a dream of opening a B&B soon in the Italian countryside. Watch this space! And be sure to follow them on:

    S3 EP2: New Zealand & Lockdown

    S3 EP2: New Zealand & Lockdown

    In episode 2 of season 3 Corrie and Eduan had the privilege to take time and sit around the virtual microphone with Sean and Suzanne.

    Sean and Suzanne moved to New Zealand back in 2017 after Sean got a job opportunity there. After nearly five great years in Wellington they recently moved to Wanaka on the south island of New Zealand where they are now based.

    We took the chance to talk to them about covid and how they experienced this period in their personal lives.
    Because like a lot of us know, New Zealand were one of the countries that took a really hard stance with respect to covid-19 rules, lockdowns and other safety measures during the pandemic.
    NZ basically closed its borders for months on end to the outside world… or atleast that was our perspective of the matter.
    But like all things in life, it is never as bad or as good as it might seem.

    Therefore we wanted to talk to the two of them to hear their expat story and to hear what impact (good and bad) covid had and still has on their life, work, lifestyle and expat journey.

    Being 1000s of kilometers from South Africa, their family and closest support structure they also became parents during the covid pandemic and in this episode they specifically reflect and talk about the joys of this period.

    Sean and Suzanne are both really upbeat people and they seem to have figured out the expat life and there are a lot of positive takeaways in this insightful and jampacked episode.
