Visiting Namibia has been my dream for 3 years or so now . I’ve always wanted to visit deadvlei, see the desert and particularly the part where it meets the Atlantic and of course catch the sunset from the desert. As I stood overlooking the desert one evening with strong winds blowing across ,the sun setting to the west and moon rising from the east, marveling at the rhythmic, undulating hills and dunes of the desert before me, that dream had come true. I had visited the desert and was spending at a desert lodge where I would gaze at a million stars and the moon that night, smiling at the fact that I was finally somewhere I had dreamed about under the same stars thousands of miles away.Continue reading “Footprints in Namibia”
Hola👋. I trust you’ve been well and coping with this unpredictable cold weather. Honestly i can’t wait for the sunny days again because aaarrrgh, it’s killing me. Besides the weather i have been glued to The world’s most amazing vacation rentals which is the main reason this post wasn’t up by Wednesday latest🤭. That series is dope, i’d highly recommend it for any traveler.
If you follow me on the socials (Incase you’d like to Insta- @ms_mutegi , twitter @ms_mutegi ) you already know early this month i got to spend the weekend at one on the most sumptuous properties within Kajiado. One thing i love about the county is that It’s hard to beat the ease and beauty of getting around. It Doesn’t take much of your time on the road and the drive is always refreshingly scenic. You’ll never go wrong with that general area, the only hard part is deciding where to stay simply because of the sheer number of holiday homes available . Quite a number of them will sweep you away, they’ll have you spoilt for choice, they’ll not make that choice any easy for you, they’ll make you wanna come back so good luck settling on one, you’ll need it.Continue reading “Olmaroroi House”
A weekend on the cliff~ Pumzika tu House
One of the hopeful symptoms of life is the impulse to travel. The act is like flirting with life, it’s enjoyable and builds up positive energy not forgetting the good memories we bring home from a trip. It’s been a long minute since i was last on the road for some good adventure and truth is, wanderlust doesn’t fully express how we feel when we crave our next adventure. Well, we’ve already established in the past that my relationship with Kwale county is complicated but this time i chose her. Hello there, i trust you’ve been keeping safe.
So i know so many of you had trips planned for Easter, just like us, only to have them thrown out the window last minute. It was heartbreaking. I was all packed up and ready to roll. Fam decided we postpone the trip to when the lockdown was lifted and am glad we did because the timing couldn’t have been more perfect! There are afew things i love more than a great destination, the excitement of an amazing vacation combined with great company and good vibes? Sign. Me. Up..Continue reading “A weekend on the cliff~ Pumzika tu House”

As Rodolfo Vosta once said “many people are so poor that all they have is money.” This is one of the many quotes that I’ve written on my mantra pad, to remember and recite whenever I feel necessary. There is need to strive to have things that we can’t put a price on, things that when we look back in future we’ll smile and appreciate we did. Traveling is definitely one of them. We do not only need it for R&R but also because it’s the best kind of education if you asked me. However if you travel enough, you’ll find that some places either don’t live up to their expectations or feel a little bit overrated (thanks to IG) once you land(reminds me of a certain experience last year)…. Aaaand now this feels like something i should address now that i brought it up but just in summary and from experience, reading blog posts of the place you want to visit will help you a whole lot. There are travel bloggers out there doing a great job. Stalk the locals, not literally however. You can learn alot and lastly, social media connections. While we’re quick to point out the toxicity of social media (myself included) it’d be remiss of me not to mention how much more connected it makes us. Twitter played a big role for instance while planning my Capetown trip last year. Thats a long story for another day, today am here to do what i do best with the hope of helping a future reader and to live up to a promise i made. Continue reading “Ol Talet Cottages”
