Visiting this place had always been in my bucket list. Like I knew that one day I would visit this beautiful lodge and experience all it had to offer. I did write of how to get there here. The first thing that occurred to me when we entered their rooms, was how spacious they were.Continue reading “My Stay at Saltlick Safari Lodge”

Journey to Saltlick Safari Lodge
I wasn’t planning to do a review so soon, but given that so many people have shown interest in what this heavenly place is, we can just get into it when the memories are still fresh. I grew up around Tsavo, and my dad had this habit of taking us out to those lodges insideContinue reading “Journey to Saltlick Safari Lodge”
I want life. In all its possible ways.
When I was turning 25, things felt different. I couldn’t place it then, I couldn’t tell what was up, but I knew that life as I knew it, was done. It felt more scary than exciting. As if I was moving from one land to a totally different one that I didn’t know of. ChangeContinue reading “I want life. In all its possible ways.”
Road trip to Namanga
I think I’m so in love with the place because we just woke up and decided to go somewhere, anywhere, and that ended up being the destination. There is something about impromptu road trips that leaves one light hearted. It’s like a pleasant surprise. So anyway, weirdly enough I don’t think I’ve ever been toContinue reading “Road trip to Namanga”

May the Ocean Goddess have her way.
Today’s waves were quite strong. That people were chased out of the ocean by lifeguards at some point. Same with the waves in my heart. Anxiety bubbling up. The old is gone. But the new is yet to arrive. A friend commented about the gods I serve. How kind and gracious they are to meContinue reading “May the Ocean Goddess have her way.”
Those shy mountains.
There are moments that are perfect. And this right here is one of them. And it’s so weird, to get this feeling inside there, that this moment, this feeling, this everything, is what heaven feels like for me. And so I look around and wonder what makes this a little more special than yesterday orContinue reading “Those shy mountains.”
Make life feel alive.
“Over the years I’ve had the gigantic fear of death, but its morphed into something far worse, the fear of life itself..” And as David, a character in the series survivor, speaks, I’ve had to pause, rewind and listen to him say it again,because of how true those words are to me right now. ThereContinue reading “Make life feel alive.”
Life is one big uncertainty.
Tonight has been such an emotional night. The kind that seem like a whole year yet its only been a few hours. Weirdly enough, each day like today, for the last 5 years, i’ve been here, on this blog, writing something, when I’m notified that today is our anniversary. There was a time I wantedContinue reading “Life is one big uncertainty.”
Some kids are singing on top of their voices in some school nearby. They sang yesterday at a time like this. And the day before today. But listening to them right now, you wouldn’t tell that all they do is sing at a time like now. Because of how energetic they go at it. Young.Continue reading “Essence”
