OK ... I'm German, was born in Germany, grew up in Germany and still live in Germany. Have been working in Belgium, USA, China and Japan for several short time jobs.

Forgot: I've got a German car. Manufacturer's slogan: "Aus Liebe zum Automobil". So I can come to the KNP and fly over the roads to the elephants and cheetahs, too!

Hi talking about nationality - I am German living in S.A. since 1972. I guess I am half South African.

Hi there,

Proudly South-African. If you want to zoom in - Mpumalanga - Nelspruit.

Sometimes it feels not close enough to the park. I have to go regularly to fuel up.

Quiet Scots girl who thought she married a quiet Scots guy. On changing Brit passport to married name found out she was automatically half Polish due to SO's father!

Lived in SA now for longer than in Scotland. Two SA born girls with Brit and SA passports who have married two SA born guys!

Would I live anywhere else - not a chance. Only time there is a conflict is when Scotland play SA at rugby and then a draw would be a great result!
