Melissa MacKay earned her law degree and got a job as a human rights lawyer. This provided her the opportunity to visit Africa, and spend time in a few different countries there — some for work, and some for vacation. This episode she shares her experiences there on food, the beautiful landscape and the welcoming people she met.

The Expats is a proud member of the Alberta Podcast Network, powered by ATB.

The Expats will conclude in April with a two-part series finale.


Episode 6: A Canadian Expat in South Africa

There is no passion to be found playing small — in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living. — Nelson Mandela

In this episode, I speak with Anna Grimsrud, a Canadian expat living in South Africa. She describes her experiences in Cape Town as being one of two Africas.

She, her husband and their two children have lived there together for awhile now. And although she misses Canada in some ways (bacon not chiefly among those ways), she’s had some incredible experiences there.

I hope you enjoy this episode. If you do, please do me a favour and leave us a rating and review on iTunes. And help spread these stories across the globe!
