Birding at Paradise Lost

I haven’t gone for birdwalks in quite a while, life has been chaotic, stressful and ultra busy in the last few weeks. But that’s a story for another post. Today I (virtually) revisit one of my favourite birdwatching locations. Read on to join in the journey… Continue reading “Birding at Paradise Lost”

Exploring Nairobi with Google Local Guides

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know that I love being out in the wild. But urban spaces can be fun too, if you know how to look. Not primarily where, but how. It requires viewing things from a new perspective. I remember in uni a book called ‘Looking and Seeing’ that explains how to ‘see’ as an architect. Being conscious of what’s in your environment as you take it in visually. It’s a bit hard to understand especially if you’re not a creative…haha. In May I had the opportunity to ‘see’ Nairobi in a different light…read on to join in the discovery. Continue reading “Exploring Nairobi with Google Local Guides”

My Blog Turns 1!

I can’t keep calm, it’s my blog’s birthday! Yep! On this very date last year, I made my first blog post. What a journey it’s been! Joy, hope, disappointment, surprise, pain and hard work are just some of the ingredients of my experience so far. Join me in the celebration as I look back at it all… Continue reading “My Blog Turns 1!”

A Hiker’s Heaven: Namanga.

As I said in this post here, I’m increasingly getting addicted to travel. If you’ve had the chance to travel a few times, you know what I mean. Going to new places is always exciting. Even more so when it’s out in the wild- nature is therapeutic to the mind and soul. Don’t believe it? Try for yourself and see. Recently I went for a hike in Namanga and what a time it was! Read on to share in the adventure… Continue reading “A Hiker’s Heaven: Namanga.”

Day Out at Kisames

I am increasingly becoming addicted to travelling. Whether it’s a day trip or several days of camping, it’s more likely that I’ll take the opportunity when it presents itself rather than decline. Especially when it involves being out in nature. There’s nothing like it really. It’s therapeutic to the soul. Nature is unpretentious- what you see is what it is. Unlike people who are good at putting on masks…that’s a story for another post. Today I recount my experience at the incredible Ngong Hills. Continue reading “Day Out at Kisames”

Bogoria/ Nakuru Waterfowl Count with Nature Kenya

In my previous post, I let you in on the importance of wetlands to birds. In case you missed it, catch up here. Carrying on with the narrative, today’s post is about the Lake Bogoria and Nakuru waterfowl census as I had promised. Continue reading “Bogoria/ Nakuru Waterfowl Count with Nature Kenya”

Unforgettable Camping in Samburu

Hey peeps! Hope your year is off to a great start? Mine is but typical of January, it’s a slow month. And after my Christmas holiday in the village regaining momentum is proving tough. Even writing this post is a struggle! Anyway, join me today as I look back at one of the most amazing trips I took last year. Continue reading “Unforgettable Camping in Samburu”

It’s My Birthday! Celebrating Life and Natural Hair

Hey peeps it’s that time of the year again! Wedding high season is here. Everybody’s  getting married/ engaged and I’m just over here like… Anyway it’s my birthday today! Another year has gone by without negative incidents, and I thank God. I’ve just returned from camping in Samburu (post coming up soon). Life may be challenging but it sure beats the alternative. Any day above ground is a good day. And so I give thanks. For life, for all God has helped me achieve- chief among them being able to grow out my natural hair. If you’re a natural hair enthusiast, read on. If you’re not, still read on…you may learn a thing or two. 🙂 Continue reading “It’s My Birthday! Celebrating Life and Natural Hair”

My Other Love

Hey there. If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you may know me as a photographer. But like most creatives, I have other skills as well. Some people call it ‘the artist’s curse’ because with so many skills, one tends to get confused about where to focus their energy. An artist may have 5 or more artistic talents and asking them to pick one is like asking a mother to choose her favourite child. (Although some people readily play favourite with their kids). But I digress. Read on to find out what one of my other talents is… 🙂 Continue reading “My Other Love”

Road Trip to Suswa

Before I started running this blog, I hesitated a lot. I didn’t know what I’d be writing about. Being ‘just another blogger’ was something I feared greatly. Going with the crowd and following trends has never been my cup of tea. As such, it took me very long before making the first post. But a good friend of mine encouraged me to just start and things would soon fall into place. So I did. And now, it’s increasingly looking like a travel blog what with all the trips I’ve been making.
