PLANNING A GETAWAY

August 2018

Planning a vacation can be fun but at times, it is borderline maddening. Picture this, you have perfectly aligned all the forces together, a couple of friends, enough money, leave days, hotel bookings and all that’s left to do is, getting to the vacation spot.

Travel is a mental investment.

A week to the trip,  is almost always the exact moment everything comes crushing down. In my case;

  • One by one my friends cancelled the trip, except Mike.

  • My travel buddy  had work issues come up so we kept postponing the trip.DSC05749

Excite Your Body & Soul, Feel Alive

The human soul needs to be shocked every now and then for one to feel alive. Do you remember that feeling you got as a kid after stealing a piece of meat from the cooking sufuria? Or when you rode the bicycle for the first time(knowing very well a fall was inevitable)? We need that adrenaline to flow in us once in a while. Cavemen didn’t need to go bungee jumping, their daily quest for survival provided them with all the adrenaline they needed.

Which is why the demand for adventure and extreme sports is booming –we need to feel alive.

Several people were down at the coast(as is the norm), good for you. cropped-img_20161203_174410.jpg Continue reading “Watamu Bliss”

What new destination did you travel to in 2016?

We are almost at that time of the year when you start reminiscing of your travels this year, or get on the road if your savings are just maturing to your targets, and for most people regretting why you did not join that roadtrip plan when you had the chance. For most of us, the end year is time to spend with the family and so any planned travels has to include them. This is the time where you want to cry when you look at those roadtrip photos and wish you could rewind the days to then. So, how well did you travel in 2016?
