I am considering a possible move to South Africa in the future. I find it to be a very interesting place, and it seems like it would be a nice place to live. The area I am particularly interested to learn about is the Durban, KZN area. I would like to hear from South Africans (and others who may have experiences from living in RSA) about what life is like there.
A little background about myself:
I grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio. I left there when I was 18 to attend the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD. I graduated from USNA in 2001 and accepted a commission in the Marine Corps.
My first duty station in the USMC was in Quantico, VA where I attended The Basic School and Infantry Officer's Course. I then served as an infantry officer at Camp Pendleton, CA for three years from 2002-2005. During that time I did two combat deployments to Iraq. I was also able to visit Australia (to which I am also contemplating a move), Bahrain, and Singapore.
I got married in March, 2005 to a wonderful woman. We are currently expecting our first child.
Since 2005, I have been working in IT acquistions for the USMC back in Quantico..
