My name is Maureen Charlotte, but my friends call me Mo. You can also call me Mo because we are about to take a journey together, which I’m sure will leave us as friends.
My life changed when I took my first out-of-the country trip in December 2017. I had been battling with depression, contemplating ending it all even. But then I read Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes, and I said my very first YES. I said yes to visiting Ethiopia for 17days by road and my life has never been the same.
That first trip took me out of my element and showed me a whole different world. It’s like it breathed air into my lungs and I felt more alive than ever. I came back pumped and ready to see what more the world had to offer, if only I said yes. And so I said yes to more travel.
I set out to visit a new place each month of 2018, which I managed to some extent. I visited local towns like Garissa, Kisumu, Meru and Lamu for the very first time. I went to Mwanza, Tanzania and even took my very first solo trip! I travelled solo to Morocco and explored that magnificent country for two weeks.
They say travelling makes you speechless and then turns you to a story teller, which is why I felt the need to have this space. A place where I can share my experiences as a Kenyan female
This is a platform for you and I to share, learn, make mistakes and grow as we walk in this journey of life. Therefore dear reader, I invite you to tembea nami (walk with me), I welcome you to Tembea Na Mo.
