KNOW THE OTHER TRAVELER: Brian And Liz

Today we do things a little different. On the hotseat we do not have just another traveler, but a couple. Many couples only do traveling during their holidays, but we have those that are on the road frequent simply because of their love for travel. Liz and Brian are one of those. We allowed them to say something about themselves before the interview.

In Search Of Vitamin Sea

 

unnamed (4)For as long as I can remember my ideal holiday begins and ends with a beach. I’m a modern day water lover and sun worshipper. I never tire of our beautiful coastline-the white sandy beaches that we are so used to speaking of and the warm Indian Ocean. It is unlike no other- with the beach boys heckling, the carts of chilli mango and the various Italian eateries littered around. Mombasa, Malindi and Diani have evolved to form havens for the party-goers, the pleasure seekers and those in search for peace and quiet. So now I ask you, why wouldn’t you want to holiday here too?

The Nairobi Bachelor’s Destinations: African Heritage House

End month is almost here, and with it comes that precious thing we call salary. Well, for some of us the last week of the month is never a good time. You remember that round of pint you paid for when your mates dragged you of the house at the beginning of the month,  you remember that nyama choma you offered to pay for on that second weekend in Rongai, you remember that movie you decided to buy but got disappointed after watching. Meanwhile, all around you people are out and about visiting the Mara, posting photos of their coastal escapades(I’m looking at you Nas) and tweeting photos from ‘Somewhere in Kenya'(These are the worst humans out there, making you jealous and not letting you know whether you can counter their bragging by saying you have been there). I am not sure where you went wrong, but I think you may not have read the post on how to TEMBEA KENYA CHEAP.0a3366841ba2aa5a404d09a5ed35b5ff184da277 Continue reading “The Nairobi Bachelor’s Destinations: African Heritage House”

Thank You!

As you may know, or not, we were nominated as one of the best travel blogs in Kenya and made the cut to be on the ballot out of all the amazing travel blogs we read.

The #BAKEAwards happened this previous Saturday and we didn’t manage to win. Tough luck!thank-you-note
