Joanna Wayland


Born in Zimbabwe, and raised in South Africa (mainly Cape Town), I moved to the UK in my early twenties where I lived and worked for 5 years.   While there, I spent as much time as possible traveling around Europe.  Just before returning to Africa, I spent 6 months back packing in Central America and worked as a dive master on Utila, Bay Islands, Honduras.

After 2 years of studying in South Africa, I moved to Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe where I worked in tourism.  In 2001 and I moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida where my son and daughter were born.

I love to travel and have visited the following countries: South Africa, Mozambique Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Lesotho, United Kingdom, Scotland, Ireland, France, Spain, Italy, Vatican City, Greece, Turkey, Switzerland, Denmark, Germany, Poland, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Belgium, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, The Bahamas, Puerto Rico, British and US Virgin Islands.

My children also love to travel.  We have spent most of the time exploring the USA, but have also visited South Africa, Zimbabwe and the United Kingdom so far.
