Fun times – day tripping in Nairobi

Anyone who knows me well know that I absolutely love traveling to countries in Africa, so much so I am often a repeat traveler to the countries I really enjoy. Kenya, along with South Africa and Zanzibar are the ones that I have visited more than once. So when I got the chance to visit…

Say yes to Kampala, Uganda

In continuing with my goal to only visit new countries and to focus on African countries I chose to visit Uganda for my past break. Even though there are no beaches there I wanted to be in a country where there were black people; they have beautifully colorful fabrics (because a girl can never have…

Becoming an international educator 🙄 issa trip

I’ve been meaning to write this post for a long time and a friend recently reminded me. When I moved to the DR in August 2010, I didn’t plan to stay abroad for more than a year. I was feeling burned out and it was supposed to be a break from the stress and pressure…

Damn…She set me on fire🔥🔥

LITERALLY…Y’all this woman set me on fire. So I have been having knee pain for about a month now and it would go away and the minute I started to stretch or walk up and down the stairs too much at work it would start hurting all over again. So I decided to try acupuncture…

Solo travel can be both great and challenging😏🤪

When I first started traveling as an adult I thought I had to travel with friends or family to truly enjoy myself and so I missed out on going to lots of places because I didn’t have someone to go with me. After I moved abroad I learned that solo travel while it takes a…

Because I’m often late to the party this post is really late 🤷🏾‍♀️I should have written it last year in June but Anywhoo. I can’t remember when I decided I needed to visit Cuba but it was a dream deferred for a long time. When I was living in Jamaica, I missed out on the…

A low key visit to Muscat 😏

Recently I had a week off work to travel and I chose to go to a country close to Cairo because of pure exhaustion and I didn’t want to embark on a long trip. I wanted several things: a direct flight, a place that would be warmer than Cairo because winter and possibly have beach…

I keep trying with Cairo but I’m failing🤦🏾‍♀️

When people ask me how I like living in Cairo, I tend to say it’s an acquired taste meaning it’s not been a good fit for me. Despite my efforts to like it and hope for the best, it has been a constant struggle. It has been comprised of some highlights and low points because…

Cairo winters are cold #seriously😬😩

Most people who know me well, know I dislike, no hate winter, and my body doesn’t tolerate being cold very well…I am not being dramatic, well maybe a little bit 😰. I hate prolonged cold weather, I am not a fan of snow, I am not interested in cold weather events and most of all…
