Home and About

 Hello and welcome to My Silver Street.

It’s an Interesting journey, and a Beautiful Walk.


Thank you so much for joining me here, and I look forward to many wonderful stories with you.

My Silver Street was borne in a time when I was living in a new country, far from home, community, history for that matter, and finding myself on my own after a long and lovely relationship that fell victim to the chaos of emigration.

Nothing was the same.  A poignant time of loss and empty nest, no real career, terrified and needing to write.  Daunting – at a point, at this stage of my life, having to become independent, muster up and discover myself all over again. Move forward and create a new future. It has not been easy, but it has been an amazing journey, the My Silver Street journey.  I have retrained as a Travel and Events Specialist, welcome to The Silver Travel Company. I am also a London Tour Guide and even spent a few years working as a waitress in a lovely London cafe.  A very long way off from the privileged existence I had known.

Starting the sixth decade, I am more resilient, curious and excited about what lies ahead.  With a stronger voice.

Grew up in the heartland of South Africa, live between London and Cape Town, and always finding time to be in Paris.  Travelling, creating journeys and events, skipping after the words and being there for those I love.

For all the mature women who will settle for nothing less than living an empowered and romantic life.
