Mare & Itis is a travel and lifestyle blog. This is something special and a dream for as long as I can remember. Mare & Itis hopes to share useful travel information, quirky stories and how we can be the best version of ourselves! From a very humble background in South Africa to full-time work, part-time travel and shamelessly daydreaming, this is to inspire others that it is possible! Whatever it is that you aspire to do.

What’s up with the name? This is the first question I get when I tell people about the blog! Throughout university in Grahamstown, the common word floating about on a Saturday was “mare”. This is a crazy time. A good time. A hectic night. Isn’t that life? Weird, fun, crazy, a mare? And, Itis. Everybody lives for the good food and the Itis. You know, when you’re so stuffed you can barely move and all you want to do is sleep? Now let’s put that together and then we have my life in a blog title!
Picking up new hobbies is my thing! A vegetarian but this is the last time I mention it; it is my choice and I DO NOT shame other people’s diets and lifestyles. I firmly believe we need to look after our home, Mother Earth, and look after each other as people. Fairtrade is the future.
New posts will be out every Thursday at 22:00 Beijing Time. Thank you for stopping by!
