For most of his life, James travelled extensively across Europe. Whether it was the family holidays to Spain. Or being sent off to family friends in France and Italy to brush up his non-existent language skills… they definitely still don’t exist!

After living in South Africa, we moved to Germany and lived in Deutschland for 5 years. Providing us the perfect platform to explore Europe. After all it’s easy to drive from Germany to numerous other European countries. And given how good the ‘autobahns’ are, we took full advantage of that.
