About me

The curious gemini

Welcome to my blog, my name is Lapaka, a Namibian blogger, Environmentalist, Eco Warrior, Multipotentilite with a passion for self-growth and tapping into my creative side.  Everyone who knows me will tell you I am very curious so there is never a dull moment for me.

I spend about 80% of my mental time creating something in my head, that might sound a bit weird but that’s how I get through my day (blame it on the gemini in me 🙂 ). With this blog I want to share most of what actually goes on up there….

The Curious Gemini is a personal memoir and lifestyle blog where you’ll read my  experiences and reflections through things I love, book reviews, motivational quotes and personal musing. The blog has the following categories:


My thought put into words.


Motivational quotes



Book reviews, I share my favourite books with you.


I’d love to hear from you!

      Hi. Thank you checking out my blog. The pictures with my tag are all created by me. Most of the quotes belong to other people. I add the author after the quote if I know who said it.

    This is a really good blog. I spend so much time searching the internet for decent personal development blogs. I believe in limitless living and questioning everything. I also have an interest in PR and am considering starting a career in that field.

    Hi Lapaka,

    I think I like you already. Perhaps it is the name of your blog – Gemini … I am also a gemini and I think we will find a lot of common things… hoping to read more of your stuff! You are inspiring …

      Hi Mehwesh
      That is so kind of you 🙂 Only a gemini can understand a fellow gemini. Maybe we could guest blog for each other. Love your blog by the way 🙂 Thank you again
