Who am I?
My name is Lydia
I am a girl from the northern suburbs of Cape Town who went against nature and fell in love with Johannesburg. I work in wine. A subject I am rather passionate about.
I grew up in a house where our atlas was used so often by the time I reached high school it was falling apart. With family scattered all over the globe I am sure traveling is in my blood. Different from most travel writers I consider most things to be an adventure. Even just venturing to undiscovered places in the next town.
Seeing I live miles apart from my family and many good friends this is my blog to them. And everyone else I meet along the way. (This now includes you too. )
I find things, I share them. I eat things, I share them. I use things, I might recommend them. I feel things, I write about it.
Lets go get lost shall we?
Join me on my drinks journey. I want to find the best local beers, the most comfy coffee spots and the coolest places to indulge in a good wine.
Food brings people together. What better way to get to know a place than to pull up and have a bite to eat at the best local spot.
I have always been a story teller. I love watching peoples faces when I tell the about mad things we got up to or ghost stories about the wine estate. If I can live a life filled with stories, I have lived well.

A few weeks ago I was invited to learn about Brandy, with Distell. Look I knew Brandy was quite the process to produce, but I didn’t know it was such an art. Nic Holdcraft presented the day and everyone hung on every word he said. This short course is for the Brandy appreciator as…
With a car, it is not far The Rendille boy pleaded with us to go to the “foor” (animal camp) to fetch a warrior bitten by a snake. “Where is it?” “Oh, with a car it is not far! Remember the old site of the Saale village? Just near there,” he replied. That gave us…
Family. Isn’t it weird how we all have family issues? Like who doesn’t have a screwed up family? I sure do. But I wouldn’t trade them for anything. My family is scattered all over the world and they are part of the reason I have such a deep love for travel. I grew up learning how…
In an attempt to for you to get to know me better, I decided it was time for an “about me” post. But since there is a button for that about this post I figured I’d tell you lesser known things about the Lydia in Greenlydia. I am nosy and tend to read other peoples…
You know how you meet someone and it just works? It’s like your lives are in sync. You speak the same language, but more importantly, it is the kind of friendship that never requires you to explain any thought, feeling or action. because the other person just gets it. I found this in someone whom…
