I am from Cape Town, South Africa. In 1998, I moved with my husband and two daughters to London, UK. We couldn't stand the weather or the lifestyle and moved to the Algarve in Portugal in August 2004. We love our life here and feel very much at home. We don't miss the stresses of living in the city and thrive on a relaxed, laid back lifestyle. My daughters are both very keen showjumpers and we enjoy going to all the away shows, where we get to explore different parts of the country, especially the wine regions!
