My Time in Kenya

My Time in Kenya

We watch the adverts on TV and we see the Comic Relief pleas for help, but when you get to Kenya, the reality of the situation becomes real. This is not just a TV documentary - people actually live in mud huts, make meals out of anything they can get their hands on and walk miles for water every day of their lives! Tsavo is a stunningly beautiful place; much hillier and rockier than I had expected with a welcomed...

Ecuador Experience

Ecuador Experience

When we first touched down in Quito, the tiredness of a sleepless flight completely went and excitement and adrenalin kicked in. This country was nothing like the expectations I had. Everywhere you looked mountains were in view and everything was so scenic. After arriving and having a quick freshen up, we set off for our walk around Old Town Quito.  We had to take it quite slow, as we needed to adjust to the altitude – which is a really...

The Cambodian Experience

The Cambodian Experience

Cambodia isn’t like any of our other destinations, it has a sense of peace to it from the moment that you land. Don’t get me wrong, I have been to Ecuador, Peru and Tanzania and loved every minute of each and every country, but Cambodia feels different. I am not sure if it is because of the history of the country or just the culture, but every moment of my week away felt fantastic. Our visit to the ancient temples...

My journey to Tanzania

My journey to Tanzania

I want to share with you some of my experiences from my recent journey to Tanzania, what a trip it was! When we touched down in Tanzania and started our journey to the first camp all I could think was, wow-what a country! It’s very hot, humid, dry and dusty but equally as friendly and inviting! You will always need to carry water and drink at least 4 litres a day. This may seem a lot more than your usual...
