When the family decided they wanted to see the world, they took only four suitcases, four backpacks, a pram and a wheelchair.

Over the past three years the Strydoms have lived in six countries: France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Ireland, America and Mauritius. They’ve crammed in as many outdoor activities as possible such as dog-sleigh riding, basketball and ice hockey. And everyone took part, including 11-year-old Anika.

Which, when you hear of the challenges the young girl has faced, makes the story all the more inspiring.
