The son of the land is coming back. Somebody should be publishing a book already, and launching it on Thursday, just before he jets in. Where is that entrepreneurship skill I know we all have? The articles, the TV shows and radio interviews have been all about Obama this week, and I bet this will go on for another 2 weeks or so. As usual, social media is usually on the forefront on such matters. Hashtag topics have been the in thing, with tags such as
#ObamainKenya , #OBAMAINKU and #ShowObamaKenya already trending. Take a look. Continue reading “ObamaCare, but for our tourism”
Date July 18th a Saturday it was when everything was all based and depended on this small but most important equipment for the sake of my well being suspended above the ground.
Karabiner, am yet to learn the right pronunciation is (I can’t definitely define it) a buckle like safety equipment whenever you are doing climbs or suspension on ropes, from rock climbing etc.
The image above is what is a Karabiner
Also below is a Karabiner
Yes, imagine the whole day having to depend on that simple equipment and few ropes as the only security from your crush down below where you are suspended. The truth be told, it is a new vocabulary to me and to many were together on this day.
As usual, it was at Hilton hotel right outside the Bata shop. I love telling people of where this adventure seekers meet before departure. It was…

How far have you ever walked on foot? To the second question, how far have you ever been on a bike? (Not motorbike, but bike minus motor? Like a Mountain bike and such)
My weekend of 12th July will remain in history. I begun my weekend to be precise, I begun my weekend from a Bar!!! Sam’s Pavilion
Much is running in your mind when I say I begun my weekend in a bar. However, to make things clear;
The date was 12th of July a nice Saturday all had been waited for long to arrive and finally it did. A day that was dedicated to my best activity I love to do, cycling. It all begun with as usual of a trip, gathering of some “baiskeli” adventure seekers at Nairobi City then followed a road trip toward the entrance mmmhhhhh

In our daily lives sometimes we tend to over complicate things. We make decisions that cause us more stress than necessary, we hang around people who drain our positive energy, we down play our achievements and dwell on our mistakes. Then when we look into inward we can only ask ourselves “Why do things have to be so hard?”.
Sorry, strange way to start a travel article I know, but this next place really did put the thought of how simplicity can be such a positive force in our lives. Because if there’s a place that personifies the concept of “just enough” its Amboseli Bush Camp.

The day started of with a weather that was kind of a threat with heavy skies. This day I was joined by fellow adventure seekers, lovers of nature and ambassadors of Kenyan domestic tourism with the help of Bush Thorn adventures.
In time and in boiling with adventures off we were from the concrete world of Nairobi engine hot and mind set for the Aberdares National park.
As usual, just like adventure seekers we had to check out and refresh our mind with stop over at major stopovers this time was at the Rift valley view point. Clicking on was the moment that we boasted of powerful phones to differences of…

Beautiful night with the a clear sky, listening to some Jonathan Butler, breathtaking view of Naivasha town and the south lake from my balcony at the Great Rift lodge. As much as I am enjoying this moment I cannot help think that this time next week I may be having one kidney, in a hospital bed, in pain but with great joy for having given my dad a better life. Well I cannot also help smiling thinking of all the pampering I will get; who doesn’t love some serious TLC 😁. We are meeting the panel of doctors on Tuesday and we shall know if the kidney transplant will happen soon or it is another wait. I just want to get over and done with this. Am having mixed feelings, happy because I am giving my dad life, scared because anything may happen, excited because in a way it will…
