Nairobi, Nairobi. Green city in the sun. You could spend a lifetime here and still fail to run out of things to do. There’s always something to see, something to do, or people to meet. Being a Kenyan myself, I might be biased in heaping an endless amount of praise on this East African gem, but it truly is a special place. Every time I’m in town, I discover something new that I’ve never tried, or seen before. So I’ve resolved to make a new list or city guide whenever I’m there. You can check out the first post that I ever made about what to get up to while you’re in Nairobi.Continue reading “Nairobi, Kenya.”
Ever since I was about 7 years old I’ve been keeping a journal, and writing. After having done it for so long it’s become a habit, second nature, almost.
It’s so nice to read back on old journal entries and get to kinda go back in time and relive the day. And it’s so exciting to put down a story that’s been floating around in your head, to paper. Continue reading “Heart on paper.”
Do you ever have those moments when you swear on your life you’re never ever gonna do a certain thing, and then life’s just like “Hahaha, I’ve got news for you” ?
Well that was this thing, for me. Continue reading “MUN.”
2 countries, 5 cities, 8 houses, 9 schools.
I feel like at this is the point I should start strumming away at my guitar, play ‘Story of My Life’ by One Direction in the background. 😂 Continue reading “That four-letter word”
Nairobi, Nairobi. The green city under the sun. The definition of ‘a city that never sleeps’, fast paced and always go go go. Nairobians themselves share this characteristic as if direct reflections/echoes of the city itself: ever busy, ambitious and dazzling. Continue reading “Things to do while in: Nairobi, Kenya”
If someone had told me 6 years ago that I’d become a Sunday school helper, let alone teacher, I probably would’ve scoffed, or laughed at the prospect of such a thing ever coming to fruition, because:
- That would mean standing in front of a crowd of people on a weekly basis
- Actually knowing what I’m talking about
- Looking after a group of kids who had enough pent up energy to power the entire nation without us ever having to worry about having a blackout ever again.
If Kenya isn’t on your bucket list of places to visit then you are doing yourself a great disservice (not to mention missing out!). Kenya has so much to offer, and I doubt a single blog post would ever be able to encompass it all, but, let’s go post by post shall we? For all of my fellow Kenyans, I know that I’m preaching to the choir here, but I guess this is directed mostly to the unknowing, and the curious travellers. Continue reading “Mombasa.”
University. That’s a big word which weighs heavy on you when you’re a student, especially a high schooler not knowing what the next step to take is (should I take a gap year? What should I study? Where should I study? Should I even go to uni at all?) My heart hurts when I see how anxiety ridden decisions surrounding university makes people. If that’s you right now, shake off those worries (easier said than done). I’ll never understand why we’re forced to make such important decisions, decisions that will affect the rest of our lives, at such a young age. I mean, helloooo I’m still the type of person who’ll look to my parents expectantly when the doctor asks why I’m there. It gives me comfort however, to remember that life has a funny way of working itself out. Continue reading “University.”
We take a lot of things for granted. The country (wherever that may be) within which we live being one of them. I can’t even count the number of times I’ve dreamt of vacationing in faraway holiday destinations when most of my own country remained undiscovered territory. I know I’m not alone in this. Not saying that it’s a crime! If you get the chance to travel across borders then by all means take it, grab it with both hands! Just don’t forget to appreciate the beauty of your own country too 🙂 Funny thing is the country which you live in may be someone else’s dream travel destination, while where you dream of going might not seem like much to whoever lives there. Funny how that works out. Continue reading “Why You Should Visit: Naivasha, Kenya”
All those who are busy doing or have ever done A-levels know that the struggle is REAL. That is exactly the reason why despite living down the road to Mambo Italia, I only had the pleasure of visiting their Lavington branch almost a year after it opened.
