Hello Mama Africa 🤩🤗💜

Since I left Ethiopia I have been trying to get back to living on the African continent. Last year I moved to Egypt but found that it is more Arabic in culture than African so it was a bit disappointing. This is not to say that you won’t enjoy your visit here but for me…

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…

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…

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…

Exploring Egypt by Nile cruising – Aswan to Luxor😎

Just recently I decided to explore Egypt through a Nile cruise from Aswan to Luxor. The boat spent the first night in Aswan and then sailed to other stops on it’s way to Luxor.  I didn’t get to the Abu Simbel temple because it’s a 3 hour drive each way and I just didn’t want…

My love affair with South Africa🤩😍

My dream of visiting South Africa was fueled by my fascination with Nelson Mandela as a teenager, I wanted to know everything about him.   I just knew that I needed to see and touch the ground that created Nelson Mandela. For a long time this dream was deferred but in 2014 I accepted a job…
