LizaGreetings and blessings all the way from Cape Town, South Africa.

My name is Liza de Villiers.  I am a free spirited, nature lover, photographer, and a tour guide with a passion for my country and the Mother Earth.

I was born in a place called Johannesburg, province of Gauteng, which is the ‘concrete jungle’ in South Africa.  I relocated to the beautiful Cape Town in 2000 and have been blessed to call this place my home for the past 16 years.

I am a photo tour guide by profession which allows me to meet exceptional people from all over the world and also allows me to share two of my passions with them: photography and my country.

How did it all start… well at a very young age I admired my Dad’s Minolta 35mm SLR film camera like it was piece of gold.  Every chance I had to either hold it or even take a picture was like heaven for me.  After getting my own little film ‘snap’ camera I loved getting trigger happy and sometimes my parents got quite frustrated with me as when they would develop my film and get the photographs, it will all be 27-30 shots of one thing… like a tree… but in my opinion from different angles, (even if it was only like a few millimeters difference).  From there my love and interest for photography kept growing, and got me my first part-time job in a photographic Studio at the age of 16, which turned into a permanent one after High School and the rest… as they say, is history.

When I am not showing off my beautiful country, I love to explore a mountain, hike, do yoga, dance with fire and travel to new places. There is a permanent wanderlust inside of me to see more of our beautiful Mother Earth.

I am extremely excited to be part of the Global Storybook team and hope I am able to inspire you all with my future posts and experiences, and maybe one day our paths will cross.

“I have not been everywhere, but it is on my list.”

 

Love,
