Distant Relatives is a unique ecolodge hostel and backpackers’ budget-friendly accommodation in Kilifi. While planning my trip to Kilifi, I was keen to stay here not only because of their pocket-friendly private rooms but also because they offer yoga classes on specific days.
While in Kilifi, I also got to swing by The Terrace, a unique laidback bar and restaurant that offers a sprawling and spectacular view of the Kilifi bridge and the ocean underneath it. Read more
Last month, I went back to Kenya for two weeks. During this short time, I decided to drive down to the Coast Province for a weekend. It had been a while since I last visited the Kenyan coast. I had forgotten how gorgeous our white sandy beaches are, how magical our sunrises and sunsets, how turquoise blue the waters of the Indian Ocean are, and how warm the locals’ hospitality. Life is a pace slower and things are different compared to Nairobi’s hustle and bustle. Read more
One the many things Roberto loves doing in Nairobi is feeding the Giraffes at The Giraffe Center. For a change, this year I decided to take him to Nairobi Safari Walk because I knew even though Giraffes are his favorite, he will still find excitement seeing other animals and particularly getting closer to them.

Prior to visiting the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT) Elephant Nursery, the only elephant my son has ever seen since he was born was Dumbo from his favorite American animated film. The night before our visit, we talked about baby elephants and he was super excited and couldn’t stop asking questions.When the big day finally arrived, I ended up just as excited as he was because I couldn’t wait to see his reaction. When the baby elephants started trotting in, I saw his eyes light up in awe and his heart melt. I felt like I had just hit a jackpot! Visiting the elephant sanctuary with him was a great idea!

If you asked my son what he loves most about visiting Kenya, he will probably tell you stuffing his face with grandma’s Maandazis, also known as Swahili Bun every other morning and feeding Giraffes at The Giraffe Centre in Nairobi. We both love spending sometime with these tall, majestic creatures and this year was not an exception. Read more about it HERE
Koh Samui and Bangkok, Thailand
Thailand is always a good idea! Together with a bunch of other mums, I just booked a yoga retreat in Koh Samui. I’m so excited to be combining the two things I’m passionate about: yoga and travel. Apart from practicing our downward facing dogs, we’ll be exploring the beautiful island of Koh Samui, of course! We’re also planning a three-day stay in Bangkok before heading to the retreat. No doubt this ultimate ‘’Mums Just Wanna Have Fun’’ trip is going be an amazing experience. I can’t wait! Read more
I just came back from Kenya, and as much as I wish I had juicy stories to inspire you to book your next safari holiday to this magical land, unfortunately, this time around, I don’t have much to rave about. Our trip was short and it was more work and less play. But inspiration or no inspiration, I can assure you that a visit to Kenya is always a good idea!
The highlight of my stay was visiting The Giraffe Centre with my not-so-little munchkin. Read more
