Stories By Philippa Francis

Over the last few years, I have fallen in love with travel and I am not sure I will be able to stop, except for my other great love; writing. After studying journalism at Rhodes and Stellenbosch Universities, I wanted to get a taste of the bigger world. I have worked all sorts of jobs and I have saved. I have ‘bused’ around Europe and backpacked around south-east Asia. I have seen magical sights and met wonderful people from all walks of life. One day, in the not too distant future, I hope to bring it all back to South Africa; the experiences, the memories, the records, the cultural knowledge, and put it into my journalistic endeavours full time. Currently, I am teaching English in Hong Kong.
