I can’t believe I’ve been to Magadi twice this year. The place is so fascinating to me. It’s wild and looks like somewhere on another planet. I don’t know how animals and plants thrive there. My first experience in January involved the drama of walking barefoot through muddy pools and on sharp pebbles. The second visit in July had drama also, but of a different kind.
Yes peeps! I’ve been officially posting on here for two years. TWO years! It’s been quite a journey. As I mentioned in this post here, this year began on a savage note. Some of the most hurtful words ever said to me in my life came from a close family member. Comments about what I’m passionate about not being a real career. Words that cut so deep that I felt a heaviness in my chest for 3 days straight. True story. But this is also the year of great things…read on to find out.
Hey peeps and happy birthday to me! Someone’s growing old. As the year draws to a close I decided to do a recap of the last 12 months. It has been quite a year hasn’t it? Full of surprises like the U.S President’s tweets. And closer home, Embu County employing workers to manually kill Fall Armyworms. Yes, you read that right! Anyway, if you missed last year’s summary post, catch up here –> (Highlights 2016) Maybe I could make this a thing, reviewing every year. What do you think?
Hey peeps! I’m taking a brief break from my usual travel chronicles. But not to worry, they’ll be back in no time.

In case you missed the previous posts on this, catch up on Part 1 and Part 2. If you’re already up to date, dig in for Part 3! Continue reading “Friends in My Yard (Part 3)”
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.”
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”
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”
