Nairobi to Diani via Bus

I wanted tranquillity. Peace. And serenity. And what better place to get that than Diani in Kenya? I settled on that specifically, because its way out of Mombasa, meaning population of people is drastically reduced. And also for the fact that its January. Literally every touristic place experiences low seasons in January. Best time toContinue reading “Nairobi to Diani via Bus”

A coffee place in Rwanda.

The simplicity of moments. There was this coffee place I found in Rwanda. It had shiny metallic seats that were quite comfortable. But it wasn’t the quiet simple ambience that took me in. It was their sandwich. I don’t consider myself a foodie, but I can say for sure their fries, sandwich and coffee wasContinue reading “A coffee place in Rwanda.”

Lamu, most pristine place in Kenya?

This is the most pristine place I’ve ever been. I can confidently say its not overrated. If you love yourself you should visit Lamu at least once in your lifetime. At least once. Unlike Mombasa or Malindi, its very homely. Everyone greets you on the streets, especially in Lamu town. Before I came here, termsContinue reading “Lamu, most pristine place in Kenya?”

Nairobi National Park

I’m sure you’ve heard the most interesting thing about this park.. Its the only park in the world within a city. Like all around it ,its surrounded by infrastructure of one type or another. Which is a plus for a city because rarely, or rather it has never been done before in the world thatContinue reading “Nairobi National Park”

Language barrier in Rwanda?

In my head I thought Rwandans speak Kiswahili. Then after a small search as I was preparing myself to come, I realised they don’t. They speak English and Kinyarwanda. So I thought ‘no problem, we’ll communicate using English, right?’. Well shock on me.  So I arrived and had a set of around 4 hotels IContinue reading “Language barrier in Rwanda?”

Nairobi to Kigali by Bus

 bridge at Jinja You know the way when travelling through Kenya, the climate changes after every few hundreds of kilometres? Well, here, the scenery is kinda the same from one side to the other. Green and more green. Tens of hills, and more hills. Thousands of banana trees. And lots of trees. This place isContinue reading “Nairobi to Kigali by Bus”

Rwandans accepted but refused to foolishly move on. 

I’ve been so shocked by my experience in Rwanda. I’ve come during the time they are commemorating 24yrs since the genocide. The signs are everywhere and people are even wearing t-shirts with some message of peace and hope or something similar.  You see in Kenya, we ACCEPT and MOVE ON. Who remembers the 2007 violence?Continue reading “Rwandans accepted but refused to foolishly move on. “
