Taking up hiking has been one of the best decisions I’ve made in 2020, I’m always looking forward to the next time I get back to the great outdoors and explore new trails. I guess you can say that the hiking bug has bitten me hard! Hiking for me has been so therapeutic, fun and […]
Earlier last month, we travelled to Marsabit on a trip curated by Xtrym Adventures. An expedition that gave us the opportunity to marvel at the scenic route of Great North Road, explore the dusty fascinating barren lands of Chalbi desert and enjoy a morning of serenity in the Marsabit National Park. In case you missed […]
Happy new month lovelies! Can you believe it’s already 2 months down, 10 to go? Someone needs to press the pause button on 2020 coz it’s moving too fast. Anyway, how is your 2020 so far? I was taking stock over the weekend, and while I still face a great deal of financial and technical […]
Going to hike Mount Longonot was the best decision I made. Not only did it help me make up my mind about going to Mount Kenya, but it was also a rather good experience and I met some really interesting people too. You can read all about that trip here. So I thought to share […]

This beautiful town is not what it used to be a couple of years back.

But the local community, together with private organizations and the local government are working hard to restore this town to its former glory.
when I arrived in Malindi and was met with long stretches of white sand beaches which only had a handful of people, I felt like I was in paradise. That feeling of ‘there is nowhere else I’d rather be in this moment’ is what seduced me to the world of travel.
Lucky for us though, in areas we paid more for accommodation like Malindi and Msambweni, we found cheap foods going as low as Ksh 50 a plate.
