The month of September has always been my best with surprises and great time exploring the country or getting those random travel ideas from my friends.
On the other hand it is also my favorite month because it carries my birthday and that’s when my travel adventure boils because a plan always comes up from friends or relatives just like last year when my travel friends of #TravelWithEliud
took me out for a day in Machakos that ended up being a Spontaneous Camping adventure
that still lingers in our travel diary as one of the best spontaneity plan ( click here to read about it Machakos spontaneity ) am waiting for this year’s to see what adventure will come with it.
As amazing as other Septembers, this one begun well as I joined Safiri Nasi on a zipline adventure to the amazing adventure packed The Forest in Kereita Forest located at Kimende town along the Nakuru – Nairobi highway for a zipline adventure.
Safiri Nasi is a tour company that offers amazing packages across Kenya at affordable cost and having used them for a number of time, I didn’t think a second time when I did my booking to confirm my weekend was adventure packed.
The date was 15th September and we met within Nairobi and set of for The Forest to enjoy our break away from the city. An hour drive we were at the adventure capital in the forest of Kereita.
Briefing was done on how to Zipline (myself having done it for sometime I didn’t take part but my friends did), many of the members of the group we had on that day were taking part in ziplining a their first time.
As usual they were all shaking with anticipation of flying over the forest others were excited of trying out zipline for a first time.
Myself I went around checking out more of other activities as The Forest has got many activities on offer from the main attraction which is zipline as they got 6 lines in offer where you choose from two lines or doing the 6 totaling to almost 3km giving you a rush over spectacular canopies to open land.
They also got Archery that give you the true feeling of being Robin Hood as theirs is in a forest hence a great feeling shooting arrows at a target in a forest. Have you got friends who you love challenging? why not take them for paintballing also an exhalating activity on offer at The Forest.
Other activities are mountain biking, horse riding, nature walk and even camping. Never say you got no plans for a weekend now you know of an amazing place to answer the call of adventure.
The main reason of this write up was the team building activity that I got involved in after everyone was done with screaming on the zipline led by a wonderful facilitator and a great friend who is a leading team building facilitator called Solomon
This is one facilitator that teaches you the importance of a Team. On this I got a share of my challenge in discovering my leadership skills thanks to challenges offered to us all. Solomon ensured we got to appreciate teamwork more than ever.
He showcased the challenges in life that look so huge yet the solution to solving them all takes just a little effort.
It was all challenging but at the end of the facilitation we went home all as new leaders appreciating little efforts that makes great changes in life to workplaces.
The little effort you can make in life means a lot in life’s challenges. Even when It comes to traveling, it doesn’t need so much effort but only few decisions in your life.
Personally I begun by loving the need to be friend as many people as I can, sacrifice all I can even a coin to ensure my travel wishes are met even if it means the last coin in my pocket. Develop more love for travel even if it means going back to places you have been to because every visit is always different from the first.
Lets travel more, share pictures or videos of places we visit, encourage one or more people to join you and you will be amazed at how much you learn by traveling. Someone once said that ‘work feels our pockets with money, but travel fills us with memories” Travel more and learn more
