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.
Sports Tourism involves traveling from one country or town to another with the main purpose of watching a sporting event. While this has not been a popular form of tourism in Kenya, it is the fastest growing sector in the world generating more than $600billion annually according to World Travel Market and World Tourism Organization. There has been an increased interest in sports by most people due to the fact that it offers a different feel to the traditional attractions.
The daunting tasks of gathering documents, bank statements, getting an appointment date, being asked a series of questions at the embassy, the uncertainty as you wait for a visa are seemingly reasons enough to steer clear off the globe-trotting route. A Kenyan passport is a strong identification document that ranks among top 60 globally in the PP index. The blue book allows you access to 39 countries visa-free and for 29 countries, you can easily get a visa on arrival. Now you can satisfactorily fill up your Kenyan passport with stamps.
Four trips in the first five months of the year, I should be adding ‘Traveler’ to my resume. And when you consider the fact that I have spent just about Ksh. 30K in total, pretty impressive. This travel thing is becoming an addiction, and I’m getting better at ways of administering the doses.
If you’re waiting to head out on your safari adventure, or if you just got back, you may be wondering what the other things to do in Nairobi are. After all, just because you’re enjoying the local wildlife and native culture doesn’t mean you have to forgo all modern attractions. Though there are plenty of natural attractions, too. So from famous sights around the city to some of the best eateries to some top parks, below are some of the best attractions to hit up around Nairobi, Kenya.
