Different colors one people Kenya color run 2018 edition

I write this sitting on my bed, my laptop on my lap, a book and a pen on the left side, headphones on and a cup of exceptional tea on a stool next to the bed. My tea, though sweet, does not seem to perform the miracles expected of it. I am trying to fight Sunday’s hangover. It’s not easy. I have tried to

Elephant Hill Hike

Ever gone through your memories of when you were 5 to 10 years of age? (If not, just take 3 minutes off the blog post and try figure out what you were up to back then, then come back). What did you remember? (Comment about it after the post). Those in the city during the 80s were busy watching G-Force Guardians of space and the real Alvin and the chipmunks before Theodore became adorable,...

Rusinga and Takawiri Homa Beach Day 3

All that has a beginning has an end but what a caterpillar calls the end a butterfly calls it the beginning. The last day means the end of the trip but on this particular trip, it meant the beginning of new memories and friendships for me. Breakfast, shower, unpitched tents and off we set for takawiri island on a water bus. Takawiri island is one of the 19 islands on Lake Victoria; the lake...

Rusinga and Takawiri Homa Beach Day 2

My tent mate Njuguna woke me up at 6:00 am to go catch the sunrise but being more of a sunset person I decided to snooze his wakeup call to around 6:15 am. “Wake up Yvonne, sunrise means a new chance and day to start all over again,” He said. “And sunset means time to […]

Rusinga and Takawiri Homa Beach

Heard the slogan “sihami kilimani mums”? That is soo me. Why should I leave after finding a Rusinga island trip posted there? Why should I leave when I make sales there? Why should I leave when I have purchased good stuff from the sellers in it? Social media usage? It all depends on what you choose to do with it

Crocodile Tears

The weather has never made me cancel a trip but the one in March this year has just been too nippy and raw for me. A month ago I prayed my novena to St. Jude for rains but not this kind. Bridges were swept off, people died and others slept in traffic for nights not to mention all the drugs I have had to kill the influenza viruses which took over my system severally in this month. See, I am...

Yes August came

So many of you have sent me requests and reservations for the little restaurant we are opening in August. It’s all coming together now and in a few days I will set up a special email where you can submit reservations. I’ve had this dream for a while, to open a little bistrot. 5 years […]
