Recently, I was having a chat with a good friend of mine about the struggles of being a third world country passport holder, my all time favourite topic of discussion 🙂 . People falling into this category are generally passport holders from African countries, a few Asian, Middle Eastern, Caribbean and South American countries. This little chat got me thinking about a time when I was in Rome on my way back to London when the flight got delayed a while due to a late departure from London. You know how delayed flights tend to make disgruntled passengers want to chat each other up and complain about the service. Little did I know I was going to be pulled into small talk due to this. For those who know me personally; I am very much an introvert; only speak when am spoken to and seldom ever initiate a conversation with strangers unless in dire circumstances.
Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by today. My last blog post detailed the mistakes I made while planning my trip to Dubai. Despite the few mishaps, I managed to squeeze in quite a lot of activities considering I was there for just a few days.
If you are visiting Dubai for the first time make sure you read my previous post here for things to avoid while there. Dubai is an amazing destination, a melting point of cultural diversity that makes for an enjoyable trip in a variety of ways. Dubai has a population of about 2.7 million with only a small fraction constituting the local Emirati people. Dubai will wow you with it’s amazing culinary options and cultural inclusivity. If Dubai is on your list this year consider this a quick guide.
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.
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.
