My experiences living in Cape Town and travelling in Africa


Having lived in China for the last two years and then travelling around New Zealand for 6 weeks I am now back in South Africa. Lots of people have asked if I am back for good and to be honest I can’t say for sure. I have experienced so many new things living overseas for the last two years that I can’t help but want to carry on and experience more.

However, for the foreseeable future I’m back in Cape Town and I’m going to continue blogging with this my third in a series of country blogs. So if you enjoyed Rory in China and Rory in New Zealand you are bound to enjoy this, Rory in South Africa. As I explore my new found interest in photography you can expect more pictures then words in my posts.

All that is left is for you to sign up (link at the bottom of the site) so as to not miss any future posts and if you have anything you want to say about anything just leave a comment and I’ll be sure to read it.

  1. Hi Rory – I’m glad I found your blogs. I’m at a crossroads with many decisions…one of my choices is to TESL and perhaps travel for a few months beforehand. I fly to California to interview with tour operators to become a Tour Director and take people on trips in January. Anyway, I haven’t been to China, South Africa or New Zealand yet, so I’ll enjoy reading! Happy Holidays…Sherry

    Hi and thanks for giving us a “like” on a recent post. Love your blogs, especially China. Amazing! My husband has been a English teacher for 25 years and when we were younger often thought about doing something like that. It looks like we should have… you seem to have had an amazing adventure. That’s so cool. I enjoyed looking. Your photos are gorgeous.

  5. First and foremost, thanks for the follow.
    secondly – your blog is amazing! i’m loving the photo’s of south africa but as a UCT student that tends to arrive on camps early,
    nothing beats watching the sun rise as city slowly begins to awaken. As the city lights go out, the sun comes up and the silence of the night merges with the bustle of the day(especially if it’s in summer – winter gets kinda cold/wet).

    • Thank you! 🙂
      You get to campus early (it must be to get a parking space) but I know what you mean. My best when I was at UCT was walking out of late afternoon tests in Jammie Hall with the fading light looking across to the mountains on a warm summer’s evening. All the best with your studies, especially Mandarin !

      • Yup. as a first year, parking on campus is a hassle. Haha thank you 🙂
