Happy New Year friends! I know, I know 🙂 what a stretch right? Considering we are two days away from nearing the end of January and the Christmas countdown officially begins yet again. I really do hope you had a fantastic christmas with your loved ones; friends or family and that you ushered in the new year with a renewed sense of optimism for the possibilities 2017 may present.
Hi everyone, I hope you are all doing wonderfully well and working towards your dreams. Today I am keen on sharing my tips on solo travel. In today’s world many of us have become accustomed to doing things in pairs, as a family or as a team. Even in job scenarios most companies tend to recruit a candidate that is more likely to be a team player within the organisation. Well, while the trait of doing things with others is great, it may sometimes stripe us of our individuality, identity and confidence in some cases.
We all know the plight of being a Kenyan passport holder when it comes to travelling; the hustle that entails procuring visas to prime tourist and travel destinations. Well! worry no more; NO VISA NO PROBLEM!! I have compiled a list of exotic destinations that us Kenyans can travel to without the hustle of applying for visas and a rough estimate of how much such a trip would cost. I have personally not travelled to these destinations but looking forward to visiting someday with proper planning and saving of course.
The technological and digital age has brought forth countless number of travel apps with each being made to cater to a certain need or purpose. Travel apps are dime a dozen but here are a few of many favourite apps that aid in planning my trips and saving costs. What’s more these Apps are free and easy to use.
From my previous post here, you may be aware that I spent the most amazing 36 hours in the enchanting Barcelona. The city’s modernist architecture, vibrance and culture is one of a kind. Barcelona has a luring aura about it that is quite inviting as you stroll through the streets. Today I will highlight what I got up to in the 36 hours I was there.
In 2015; I made several attempts to visit Barcelona and they all proved to be unsuccessful. Mainly because my plans were made around the summertime when flight tickets and accommodation are insanely expensive. I had to be patient and I decided to hold off visiting Barcelona for a more opportune time.
So a couple of weeks ago, I went down to Nakuru with my family to visit an aunt of mine and we took the opportunity to sight see. I had been to Nakuru a couple times but I hadn’t fully appreciated the beauty of the region. I don’t know about you, but I hardly ever make local travel plans not because there aren’t amazing places to visit but because I totally take Kenya as a travel destination for granted.
It was so hard to find the right words to describe my feelings towards this beautiful city. I mean thinking about London brings great nostalgia, it was home to me for about a year and four months. I dare say that London is the most beautiful and charming city I have ever had the pleasure to visit and live.
Wow, I see confetti and cake everywhere :-), at least in my mind hehehehe!! I can’t believe it’s been one year already. It seems like just the other day when I decided to share my passion for travel and all things travel. I had no idea that I would come this far. What I know for sure is that I am grateful to everyone of you who takes time to come on here and read the articles I post. Your views, comments and likes are deeply and highly appreciated.
