    I travelled to few European countries about three years ago and when returned home (Venda, Limpopo, SA) ,I was stunned by sightings in my own village. The beauty of the landscape and the richness of our land.

    It’s just amazing how it took me a trip to Europe for me to realize the beauty within my own surroundings 🙂
