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
ARGENTARIO OSA VILLAGE
This summer, the boys and I spent a splendid week at Argentario Osa Village in Talamone. We couldn’t have chosen a better base from where to explore Monte Argentario and its neighboring towns.
This summer the boys and I spent a splendid week at Argentario Osa Village in Talamone. We couldn’t have chosen a better base to exploring Monte Argentario and its neighboring towns.
I was truly enamoured of Talamone. This charming fishing village in Maremma, Tuscany is a Jewel. We enjoyed taking evening strolls through the village’s narrow streets and stone houses all the way to the Aldobrandeschi fortress.
The fortress was built in the 13th century and stands on top of a rocky hill dominating the port and offering delightful panoramic vistas and gorgeous photo backdrops. Just under the fortress is a beautiful waterfront beach establishment called Bagno Delle Donne.
Talamone is also linked to Giuseppe Garibaldi, one of the greatest Italian generals that contributed to the Italian unification and the creation of Italy. En route to Sicily Garibaldi stopped over in Talamone to stock up on water and weapons.
SAMBA Peruvian Restaurant is one of my favorite upscale restaurants in Manila. Peruvian Chef Carlo Huerta Echegaray and his team know how to delight visitors and keep them coming back by keeping the tantalizing flavors of Peru alive in their dishes.
One of my favorite dishes at SAMBA is Aros con Mariscos. This whole grain rice dish loaded with Seafood is colorful and scrumptious. Read more

But since I only had 24 hours for this visit, I simply had to make the most of it! Read more
My husband wanted to take our son to a beach he used to frequent with his parents when he was a little boy. So, one fine afternoon, we set off to visit The white sandy beach of Rosignano in Livorno. 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.

Africa is made up of 54 countries and out of all these fully recognized sovereign states I am not very proud to say I have only visited 2; Uganda and Tanzania. My excuse is traveling around Africa is not as cheap. Leaving miles away from home and visiting only once a year leaves me with no choice but to dedicate every single second of my time to my family.

Alexandra Stoddard once said, “When you leave a beautiful place, you carry it with you wherever you go”. That is exactly what happened to me with Panglao, an island in the north Bohol Sea. Read more
