Hello, friends! Super sorry for the long hiatus with posting. Hopefully some of you are still out there… Jon and I have had a bunch of trips over the last couple of months and we haven’t been able to properly write. But, that ends now. Hopefully the exciting content coming in the next few posts … More Buongiorno!
Hi readers, This is Naomi (Doda Naama’s niece) writing a guest post about my and my family’s trip to South Africa. When we went to South Africa, it was Chinese New Year in Shanghai, where I live. In Johannesburg, we were playing together and we went to a pool that had a slide. We went … More My* Trip to South Africa (Guest Blogger!)
Jon here. I thought it would be appropriate for me to give a full rundown of the process of moving ourselves to Malawi. As a brief recap, Naama and I knew we needed to relocate after a set-back in my immigration application to South Africa late last year. With my employer’s connections and reputation in … More We’ve Arrived in Malawi!
With all of the craziness going on, Jon and I decided to take a weekend away and try to relax a little bit. We were going to go in January but a few days before we were supposed to fly out, the weather forecast showed rain, rain and more rain. So we delayed because we … More Lots of Mossels* and Oysters!
So! Just to recap, we were supposed to be coming back from our trip to the U.S. and then move to Malawi straight away… Right? Well, slight curveball: some of our plans were predicated on us keeping our SA apartment for future travel (albeit open to any visiting staff from Malawi) and that ended up … More Our (Eventual) Move to Malawi – It’s Been Interesting Already!
After my mom’s visit, we took the loooonnggg flight to Durham to start my whirlwind U.S. tour.

You’re the best. … More U.S. Trip – Christmas with the Crisps (& Other Shenanigans)
Man, we’ve been wanting to write this for a few days now but we were waiting for our grandma to finish her post*. (Ahem…) 🙂 We flew back to the U.S. two weeks ago and, let’s just say, it was quite an experience. Our mom was being a bit of a triscuit and had already … More Our Trip to the U.S. – Phew, What a Ride! (Guest Bloggers!)
I arrived in SA after a long, long flight from Atlanta, which became easier as I sat by a nice couple from New Orleans. We had a quick dinner and went to bed. The next day, I got settled, adjusted and we met Jon for lunch at La Terasse Rooftop Cafe, a Moroccan restaurant in … More Tata (i.e., Michaela) in South Africa (Guest Blogger!!)
Hi readers, this is Daniel* (Naama & Jon’s nephew extraordinaire), writing another guest blog, this time about my family’s trip to South Africa. Week One – Pretoria and Joburg During the first week of the trip we stayed at Naama & Jon’s apartment in Pretoria and went to many attractions such as Soweto (Nelson Mandela’s home), … More My* Trip to South Africa (Guest Blogger!)
Kate and Aly guest blogging today! We just got back from an amazing trip to South Africa and are here to write a TripAdivsor-esque review of our time with Naama and Jon. Lodging Place #1 – Naama and Jon’s place is fantastic. We highly recommend the guest room shower. The room has been filled with amenities and … More If You See Something, Say Something* (Guest Bloggers!)
