What being a teacher taught me…

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:

  1. That would mean standing in front of a crowd of people on a weekly basis
  2. Actually knowing what I’m talking about

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?

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”
