Our route


Our route began on June 8th, 2012 in Cape Town.

We drove all the way up the Garden Route (zigzagging into the Karoo) and into the Eastern Cape. Then into the Transkei, Kwazulu Natal and Swaziland, stopping over in Mozambique before heading into Mpumulanga and Limpopo.

We headed down into Gauteng and the North West province, then into the Northern Cape before entering the Western Cape on the last leg of our journey.

Though initially we set it to six months and 7000 kms, with stops at different permaculture projects, eco-villages and eco-friendly establishments along the way, it ended up being a record 15,000 km and 9 months!

The map below is by no means accurate - and will be updated soon, but that is the general route we followed, with LOTS of zigagging inbetween and a detour up the coast of Mozambique as far as Vilanculos!

Hi, my name is Melissa and I created this site together with photographer Christopher List to help spread awareness about green lifestyles and travel, so everyone can learn how easy it is to live in a sustainable way. Enjoy!

I wasn't sure what a permaculture design course was about, until I read through Melissa's fantastic blog! I've signed up and soon I'll be a PDC graduate too.

The link between personal responsibility and preserving our environment is becoming increasingly clear to me. Reading up on simple ways to be more eco-friendly in my life and travels has really helped me practice what I preach.
