Another Year To Be On The Road

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!

ON THE ROPES

On your way to Maasai Lodge is a place most of us never take interest in, but could possibly be the place you’ve been looking for to spend your weekend. It’s a pretty chilled place most of the time, a peep into the compound as you pass by doesn’t reveal any life around. The sign board pointing to the gate doesn’t help either. ‘AIC Diguna Mission Centre’ isn’t what most of us would consider a place to spend a weekend. But on the contrary, it actually is the place you will need to spend your time.

Dear Travel Diary: Diani Travels

DSCN0004

The Kenyan coastline is one of everybody’s favorite destination. To some the sandy beaches does it, for others it’s the sun, and still for others it’s the lovely coastal people you get to interact with. The coastal foods & the people do it for me. I have been to Mombasa, Diani, Kilifi & Watamu in a period less than a year going back from today. Heck, I’ve been to the coast more times in the past 4 years than I had been in my entire childhood. And it’s been amazing! I wasn’t always a fan of the coast, it’s come to grow on me. The first time I traveled to Coast was when I was 9/10 years old. My mother was too careful with me & so I didn’t enjoy much. On subsequent visits I was either sick or gone for a specific job, having little time to enjoy my time. Not until 2013, coast had never been ‘fun’ to me. Continue reading “Dear Travel Diary: Diani Travels”

Hotel Rooms Or Camping?

2a6b2ed554df441368c6b7a41088f438We all have our accommodation preferences when we go on our travels. Sometimes it’s not about what we want, but what we can afford. and even other times it’s about what can accommodate us. All these factors, and more, come into consideration when we are looking for a place to stay as we plan our travels. Most of those who stay at hotels are thought to be rich, have the money to book a night for 10000Ksh in the Mara while he or she can camp for half that, or less. Campers on the other hand are thought to be misers or without as much money to get a hotel. All those are misconceptions. I know guys who would comfortably pay for a hotel room but choose to camp(Hello The Kenyan Camper …just saying hi 😛), and guys who stay in hotel rooms after a year of savings.
