Walking Back In History

Over the weekend I had some two memories coming back to me. At some moment I wondered of what to talk about my experience but I thought I should share bits of the memories.Been born and raised up in Mombasa, my attachment to the Lunatic line begun in my early years and to some extent I think that’s where travel bug bit me (may be a traveler left it there for the next victim to be bitten by the travel bug and I don’t regret being the victim.)On our holidays, the long holidays in December my mum would have my … Continue reading Walking Back In History

Weekend In Tanzania

Nothing beats scenic road trips combined with a lively group………………………. That’s what I learnt over the weekend when I hit the road leaving for Tanzania. As always it’s my personal challenge to see how many strangers I can turn into my best friends and here was my best challenge with a group of about 20 strangers giving me the biggest number of strangers I had for 2 days on a road trip so far in 2019.Robert Louis Stevenson once said that “I travel not to go anywhere but to go.

Home Far From Home

Nanyuki Town!!!!! What comes in mind when you hear of that name? For me this is a town that has a share of legacy in the best pages of books of history locally, regionally and also globally. It has had a good time wearing a suit with pride for as long as calendar pages can roll back. To many it is the place where the end of a rail line gave birth to so much folk stories some sounds so comical. The locals baptized the town and gave it a name “…mwisho wa reli…” (Last bit of the railway line). … Continue reading Home Far From Home

Challenge Accepted

“……I swear no one can burst this bubble of self glory and celebration of small achievement….” Those were the words of my friend Carrine on her completion of a half marathon as an amateur with no pre-training and her 3 hours experience in the Beyond Zero Marathon. On congratulating her for such an achievement she threw a challenge to the lazy Runner who me, “We should go run together” At first I was hesitant but as soon as she mentioned Karura Forest I accepted the challenge and we did set up a running date. However, the few days to the … Continue reading Challenge Accepted

Its now 60+ days into 2019 so far so good. 60 days have already taken centre stage on the new pages of the new year, as usual my shoes and backpack have had a good taste of dust, my binoculars and camera have fought for the best views, scenery and captured the best both in my mind and memory cards.

Cycling weekend

Cycling has been my all time favorite way to spend my weekends and even my free time. I have been to some amazing places, done what I can’t put price on, and above all I have made a lot of friends from my cycling. When on my bike all I feel is joy, from that wave you get from a fellow cyclist saying “…hi…” to the moment you meet fellow cyclists headed out to the same directions nothing compares to that joy. In Nairobi, there is a monthly meet up for cyclists where we all meet up at a designated … Continue reading Cycling weekend
