Sorry for being so quiet. After diving in Tanga and almost being blown up by dynamite fishing I headed for Iringa, where some of you may remember is my favorite school that touched my heart. But before I reached Kelanzo farm I met another single female traveler who is based in Dar but travels to countries around with her…

Heading back down south…..

After meeting up with an old friend, Tessa Fraser in Malindi I headed for Tanzania. A nice drive and an easy border crossing between Kenya and Tanzania I headed for Peponi Beach near Tanga. I had stayed here on the way up north so was a good feeling being in a common area again. I was there for one…

And what comes next…..

Lorry and I jumped into Maggie on the 23rd December and headed for the coast. Helen and I managed to convince Lorry that it was silly taking his motorbike and might as well drive with me and take a bus or train back. His travel buddy Marc had gone home for x-mass so we were both on our own.…

Early hours in the morning Carey arrived in Addis. She came out to spend a little under 2 weeks with me and travel with a group of us back down the Turkana route. So I was super excited about having company again and someone to talk to while driving .
So the morning Carey arrived we went shopping and…

Rough starts to Ethiopia but things are looking up now. I am currently in Bahar Dar, after visiting Gondar and the Simian Mountains. I found a little piece of paradise at a camp named Tim & Kim on the banks of Lake Tana. A Dutch couple who started this camp some years ago after backpacking through Africa. It is…

Lake Turkana to Ethiopia

Wow where do I begin? I had the best 10 days of wild camping and seeing a side of Africa that I was longing for. Local tribes, no civilization and it felt like I was travelling through a time warp back to the 5th century.
I travelled this route with Nolan Gallagher and Stephen Brown from the states. I met them in Nairobi at…

What an awe-inspiring experience I had at Watamu Turtle watch. Not only did I get to work with turtles one on one but I also got to form unforgettable relationships with the staff members. All the staff have such big hearts and are there for the turtles, they want to save them and help them as much as possible.…

Kenya so far…

Kenya so far has proved to be better than anticipated. I am loving travelling alone as I can stop and go and not worry about anything else. The border crossing was interesting from Uganda as I drove straight through- I eventually asked someone where the border was, so I had to turn around! The immigration officer was so sweet as…

Uganda experience

No Jinja is not a town with loads of Jinja’s but a town on the source of the Nile. There are no words to describe the beauty of this place. I have fallen in love with this area and really didn’t want to leave. This is why I will be going back to Uganda before heading to Ethiopia.
I stayed…

Crossing into Uganda

Uganda was definitely the highlight of my trip. I have had so many meetings and adventures it is almost impossible to tell you all about them.SO the border crossing from Rwanda into Uganda was somewhat interesting. I was driving on a nice tar road after travelling up north through the Akagera National Park to the border. We arrived at a…

After spending four days at Akagera Park we headed for Kigali. Now all African cities so far have been the same, dirty, traffic and loads of people everywhere, however, Kigali is different. This city is clean, peaceful and welcoming. Not only Kigali but we have found the whole of Rwanda like this. The people are the friendliest people we have…
