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.
While am aware that travel is not everyone’s cup of tea, today I will be sharing some reasons why I think as Kenyans we don’t travel. I would also like to state that I am aware that we all have different social, economic backgrounds and various life obligations. For sometime now, I have been asked how I afford to travel. If I had a nickel for everytime I’ve been asked that then I would for sure afford to travel hustle free for the rest of my life 🙂 :-). There is no secret really, like everything good in life there has to be some element of hardwork, preparation and sacrifice.
Nice is indeed nice, this amazing city on the French Riviera is absolutely picturesque and dreamy. From its amazing beaches, warm and breezy weather to its architecture which is influenced by both French and Italian culture.

Want to know how to spend less than kshs. 75,000 inclusive of flights and accommodation then stick around as I give you a detailed breakdown of how to make this possible.
If you are from Nairobi and or live in Nairobi, chances are that you are quite acquainted with the affluent suburbs of Karen. But do you know that Karen is named after world renowned author and artist Karen Blixen. Karen Blixen relocated with her husband Baron Blixen in the early 1900’s left a mark in Kenya, more so Karen where she lived for almost two decades. I spent an afternoon with my friend Sally at the Karen Blixen house in Karen and enjoyed a the beautiful home and the amazing scenery that this beautiful house rest from the leafy green environs but a small section of the Ngong Hills.
