If it seems like a crazy idea, then you should probably do it. In fact, scratch that, you definitely should do it. This is what Ziplining at the forest sounded like. The Forest is this wonderful place located in Kereita slightly past Limuru town. Flying Fox (another of its names) is about 23km from Nairobi and should take you at least an hour to get there- on a good day. One could use public means up to Limuru town, then get transport to Kereita from there – in case one is not driving. Continue reading “The Forest ~ Kereita”
Cycling in Kenya is becoming quite popular. Many people are quitting the gym for physical outdoor activities like jogging and cycling because of the allure they come with. The upside of cycling is that it comes along with fun activities such as bird watching, picnicking and traversing the country in general.
Listed below are some of the places you can go cycling in Kenya with friends and family:
1. Karura Forest

Kenya is a true melting pot of culture, heritage, traditions, and some of the largest treasure of natural wonders in the world. The tourism industry has taken great advantage of this, making it a multi-million dollar economic sector. With that being said, Nairobi and other cities in Kenya offer a vast array of things to do and places to see outside of the natural wonders found in the country.

It’s not everyday I sit down to write about a bar, let alone write a review about a bar far from my local. Heck, I don’t even think travel-blogs write about bars. And to add to the fact that I am more of the outdoorsy(no, it’s not a formal word) person, this just feels weird. I don’t even have any other place I could compare with for you readers to make a judgement of the place. Consider this a review of a bar from an old young man who just loves good places.

The human soul needs to be shocked every now and then for one to feel alive. Do you remember that feeling you got as a kid after stealing a piece of meat from the cooking sufuria? Or when you rode the bicycle for the first time(knowing very well a fall was inevitable)? We need that adrenaline to flow in us once in a while.

By contrast, the modernites – with their smartphones,desk jobs & technology – are left somewhat wanting when it comes to adrenaline. Life is much safer today, but it’s also duller. Which is why the demand for adventure and extreme sports is booming –we need to feel alive.
2018 and still there is no way to retrieve text I copied and forgot to paste before copying another😩? Technology is failing humanity. Anyway, I had to rewrite this post. And a disclaimer, the first was funny and more interesting.
