Nairobi, Kenya. 2

Last summer, I had the privilege of visiting probably the best animal orphanage in the world. 🙂 David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is a orphan-elephant rescue and rehabilitation program based in Nairobi, Kenya. The baby elephants, who range from about 1 month to 2 years old, get rescued by this lovely team after their mothers have been killed by…

Thika, Kenya. 1

I remember this trip like it was yesterday. I’d never been to Thika before, so when I told my sister that I’d be taking a road trip there, she wasn’t really comfortable with the idea. It had to be done though… I’d taken solo bus trips to Moscow and St. Petersburg in Russia a couple…

Kisumu, Kenya. 2

While in Impala Park, Kisumu, I decided to take a break from walking because it was scorching hot outside. The guard at the gate had mentioned that there was a hotel within the park so I decided to go check it out. It’s called Impala Eco Lodge. I ordered some traditional cuisine (fried fish, mashed…

I’d been waiting all week for a friend’s friend to confirm a possible trip to Maasai Mara. He’s an organiser. Gets you the best rates and all. I’ve never been to Maasai Mara before so I was pretty excited about this “possible” trip. Well, it never happened. The group I was to join postponed the trip. So,…

Y’all have heard of Maasai Market, right? Nah? Ok, lemme explain. 🙂 A long, long time ago, a group of Maasai women thought it would be a great idea to sell their art at the country’s business hub, Nairobi. So they set off with their hand-made artifacts, made their way to the city and started selling their…

Hey ya loves! 🙂 On the day I was to leave for school, I decided to take a small tour of Nairobi. All these pictures are of the CBD. There’s so much you can do within the city. Like paddle boat at the Central Park (Uhuru Park). Or climb to the KICC helipad for the…

I’m seated on my bed as I write this. Very exhausted after a long day of classes and lectures. It’s 9pm. And I’m really looking forward to publishing this post. I get an unexplainable high off blogging. It just makes me happy. 🙂 Lemme tell you a lil something about today’s post. A few weeks ago I…

St. Petersburg, Russia. 4

Remember that time I took a trip to St. Petersburg? Well, there’s one more day that I haven’t shared with you yet. The last day. I decided to save the best for last and visit the Peterhof Palace just before I left. Peterhof is an immensely luxurious royal estate that lies on the shores of…

During my summer holiday, I, for the first time, visited the Giraffe Center in Nairobi. I took a bus there from the CBD and after alighting at my stop, I asked a lady who had also just alighted from the same bus for the directions to the Giraffe Center. Apparently she worked almost next door to the place. During…
