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. Fortunately, AllTheRooms has put together a cool list of reasons to visit Kenya beyond its marvelous wildlife.
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.

When we talk cultural festival you are probably thinking shirtless people running around and having fun. Well, that would be most visitors when they attend these festivals, and not the locals. Haha! Cultural Festivals have grown leaps and bounds over the last 5 or so years. The interest in these festivals has grown, with visitors coming just for them from far and wide.
These are some of the famous festivals in Kenya. Continue reading “Cultural Festivals in Kenya”
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. Cavemen didn’t need to go bungee jumping, their daily quest for survival provided them with all the adrenaline they needed. 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.
We all love to travel differently, and nothing varies from one person to another as accommodation preferences. There are those who want a quiet calm abode, there are those that want luxury and there are still those who just need somewhere to lay their heads, and more. Accommodation is one of the basics you need to sort out during travel escapades, and thus is very important. Today I will share simple backpacking accommodation options around Kenya, for when you feel like doing an impromptu affordable travel. These can also be awesome camping spots as they have open spaces. Continue reading “Backpacking Accommodations In Kenya”

January is here, yet another month to make plans for your year’s travel schedule. And for those of us with a few coins still in the account, to go on a very cheap mini-vacation. Oh, Happy New Year guys. Hope your holidays were merry and you crossed over in one piece. Where did you travel to? How was your stay? Kindly share with the rest of us.
2017 wasn’t the best of years in terms of travelling for most of us. There were a lot of uncertainties which most of the not-seasoned travelers gave as excuses to not travel. 2018, however, looks to be very promising. A lot of guys look to be very optimistic of traveling this year to new destinations and explore Kenya more. It’s January though, so I can’t trust any of you yet. Hahaha!

Do you go harsh on a baby or you try and let the mistakes be the teacher? I should have asked my mother this, but that lady will give me an answer that will leave me with more questions than answers. I just don’t understand her on most times. I could also have gone to twitter and asked the many wonderful mothers I follow, but you just never which side they wake up on. I know better! And so here I am, with no answer to that question but an experience I can share.
Standard Gauge Railway is the latest of Kenya’s projects. The baby that was talked much for what felt like forever. You see, for the longest time, the Kenya Railways was associated with old, rickety and slow moving trains. It was a relic to say the least. Last time I took a long distance train ride was mid 1990s, from Kisumu to Yala. And it was a ride I still remember vivid today. The hard chairs, the swaying from side to side, the horns… that was the old. ‘Madaraka Express’ is the new. Shiny, faster and with leather seats(still in doubt), it is the complete opposite of the old.
