  1. Tell us a bit about yourself.

I am Wendy Maes, a Belgian travel blogger. I started blogging last December to share my travel experiences with everyone who’s interested. I am 43 years old, married for 20 years and mom of the two most amazing boys in the world.

  1. What is your earliest travel memory?

When I was 4 years old my parents took me to Canada because my uncle married a Canadian girl. I was the flower girl.

A week in Cuba

I spent a few days in Havana.  It’s an amazing city. World Wide Wendy

There are so many, but if I have to pick one it was my trip to South Africa and Mozambique.

  1. What is your favourite travel destination?

South Africa

  1. What must one do there?

In South Africa you have to do everything, a safari, Panorama Route, Garden Route etc.  It is impossible to choose just one thing.

My e-reader

The Rosenhof in Oudtshoorn. I was there 20 years ago on my honeymoon and we will be there again in 2 weeks.

  1. Any embarrassing travel moments?

One day before we left for Cuba I found out that we had booked a hotel from 1 February instead of 1 March!

  1. Worst travel experience?

Crete in Greece.  Never again. It was a dirty island, I didn’t like the food and it was pouring rain.
