I'm Annel, wife to Matt and mother to Anika (8 years old) and Reuben (3 years old). I love to travel, blog and write children's books. We're a South African Traveling family who's been full time traveling since June 2018. We love to slow travel our way around the world and work and school from wherever we are. Anika and I write children's books about animal characters with special needs as Anika herself is a wheelchair user, born with Spina Bifida. We aim to inspire other families with challenges to go out there and live life to the fullest.

Highlights
Never say Never

I fell pregnant again with my second daughter, Esti, and immediately imagined her en-pointe on stage, but when I was 20 weeks pregnant, the doctor told us that she had a severe heart condition. A year ago, I wrote a post on Facebook, saying that I’ll never dance again, because Anika won’t be able to dance with me. I realized that Anika lives a full life – her spirit dances while Esti dances in heaven. I joined a group of amazing ladies for an adult ballet class and decided to keep on dancing until it doesn’t hurt anymore.

Anika was super star struck when she met the South African singer @dewaldwasserfall! He made special effort to get to her as the stage area wasn't wheelchair accessible. She got his autograph and he even dedicated a song to her! What a gentleman! #starstruck #dewaldwasserfall #teenagecrush #afrikaans #afrikaansmusic #afrikaansemusiek

When the answer to your prayer is no… – Annél Strydom

Just like the paralyzed man, you and I also have wants and needs, and we need to remember that even though we think we know what we need most in life, God knows better. But his dad knows better, he knows what his son NEEDS at that given time, and later – after dinner – gives his child an ice-cream. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralyzed man, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” When the physical healing happens, we will praise Him, for we know that she is Fearfully and Wonderfully Made, and just as promised, she is healed bit by bit in front of your eyes, not all at once – but in the meantime, we will praise Him for fulfilling her primary needs, the needs that He knows she needs the most.
