Hey there! My name is Olivia de Villiers and this is my blog. Rock Paper Scissors is just a little spot on the internet where I get to share my passions and adventures.

I was born in Gaborone, Botswana before moving to Cape Town at the age of four. Cape Town is definitely one of the most beautiful places in the world and I’m privileged to call it my home. I live in a little coastal town called Hout Bay. Living so near to the ocean I spend a lot of time on the beach with friends. I also enjoy cooking, photography, hiking, yoga, reading and exploring my corner of the world.

I am incredibly passionate about travel and if I had it my way I’d be living out of a backpack, moving from one country to the next like a gypsy. I’ve traveled extensively throughout Europe, Africa and South East Asia. My country count ranks up to 29 but I assure you my bucket list is even longer. I write about every one of my trips and try to provide helpful advice for anyone who might be interested in doing something similar.

I love exploring my home town and take pride in finding hidden gems and secret spots in beautiful Cape Town. You can find an authentic local’s guide here on the blog with tips and tricks for having a ball in the Mother City.

Healthy living is very important to me and so you’ll find numerous recipes for healthy eating, avoiding wheat and sugar.

Hopefully you’ll find something for you here for you!

Love Olivia
