South Africa

As you  might know by now, I’m proudly South African. Here are some more facts about South Africa that make this country awesome.

South Africa has the world’s largest individually timed cycle race (the Cape Argus which I completed for the third time this year :)), the world’s largest open water swimming event (the Midmar Mile), and the world’s largest ultra-marathon (the Comrades Marathon).

Afrikaans, my home language, is the youngest language in the world. Afrikaans was first recognised as an official language in 1925.

South Africa is the only country that has hosted a cricket, soccer and rugby world cup.

About Die reis

So....I really believe that I’m not the only person feeling this way. Like Lucius Annaeus Seneca  put it: "If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favorable." And that's exactly my problem...I have no idea where I want to be. I’m content in the moment, but is constantly restless about the future. I have too much of a hunger for success and fulfillment to just leave it there, but never in my life have I had a clear picture of where I want to be. Therefore I want to make life about the journey. I want to appreciate life for what it is, and not let the small things pass me by without noticing them. For the "where do I want to be?"...maybe I will find out along the way.
