​It’s therapeutic to travel. Well, to me that is. After a trip I usually get back relaxed, with more solutions to my problems, or just not thinking about that which made me mad. It may be something I’ve developed over the years I’ve been traveling, but I also think this happens to everybody. You can’t go on a trip and be mad, you shouldn’t! Enjoy your time no matter your demons, and do it to satisfy your soul. You don’t want coming back from a trip without good memories. There are times nothing will go right on the whole of your trip, there are just those qtgszdph trips, but even then get something good to cling on. Continue reading “Travel Dreams”

Dear Travel Diary: Diani Travels

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”

Dear Travel Diary: Good Music 


Some rhumba mix is playing in the background as I type this. I was supposed to be on the road during the day(today 14th April), but a cousin was driving down to the rural & I couldn’t pass on saving the fare. It’s the wise thing to do with all the buses full till Sunday, & the shuttles hiking their fares. Oh, Happy Easter to you & your loved ones too. I decided to spend time away from the city for this long weekend, 5 days is too long to be sleeping in & watching TV. To make it worse I’m done with House of Cards, got nothing to watch now. So here I am. Continue reading “Dear Travel Diary: Good Music “

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.
