Adventure #7: Amboseli National Park

Adventure #7: Amboseli National Park

When I last wrote, I was in the UK recovering from an ankle injury. Sadly I’m still there! If you know me well, you probably know I suffer from the following problem: In other words, I get itchy feet and dislike being in one place for long periods of time….the good news is that I’ve […]

Adventure #6: Climbing Mount Longonot

Adventure #6: Climbing Mount Longonot

One of the great things about living in Nairobi is that there are just so many places that you can visit over a weekend or on a day trip. Without your own vehicle you’re basically screwed though as “public transport”, ie. matatus are hardly reliable and there is no direct route to the majority of […]

Adventure #5: Overlanding in South Africa (Part 1)

Adventure #5: Overlanding in South Africa (Part 1)

Excuses, excuses…

I know I started my last post with an apology but this time I owe  you a big one, particularly as it’s unfortunately going to be a short post today. Sorry! The past month has been geared up to producing this: Yep, that’s right, my Masters thesis. I’m talking studying every day (when procrastination doesn’t […]

Adventure #1: The Maasai Mara

Apologies for the lack of updates – it’s been a busy few weeks. I got back from the UK last night as I had to return for some training. It was nice to see some family and friends briefly but if I’m completely honest, it was pretty unsettling to have to go back so soon […]
