Hello! Hello! Hello!
How was your Easter Holiday? Hope it was great.
If you are a home body like me, you know getting out of the house has to be prepared for, but I’m trying to change that this year. This is the year to get out of my comfort zone. And what better way to do that than create a list of experiences for 2017.
This year Eventbrite come up with “Experiences, not Things!” It has become so easy for us to spend most of our money on material things, why not change that trend and spend it on new experiences.
So, I have come up with a list of things that I and my better half would like to experience, but the more crazy experience belongs to him, there are some things you will never catch me doing. No thank you, I’m not chasing death here. 😂😂😂
- Experience the coast on ‘lazy mode’.
I’ve been to the coast about three times, and this Easter made it four. All the times I’ve been there involved activities, and don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed visiting all those historical sites, but my lazy self and I just wanted to be on chill mode. Hahahaha. And I finally got to do that. Just soaking in that sun and getting my tan on.
This was my schedule;
Breakfast > Pool > Lunch > Pool & Ocean > Dinner > Bed (And repeat)
So, lazy mode in coast ✔︎✔︎✔︎
Quick Tip ; Save up for an all inclusive resort, you get to be extra lazy 😃😃😃
2. Climb Mount Kenya & Mount Kilimanjaro.
For the past few months I’ve been psyching myself up for these two. Reasons being that, I hate the cold and I ‘m scared of heights. But I want to experience climbing up them and getting to experience the snow. It’s going to be very cold, but romantic cause you know I ain’t going alone 😉 . Plus imagine how amazing those photos would be.
3. Zip Lining at The Forest.
Remember how I said I’m scared of heights, but look at me now, wanting to zip line. I’m even getting nervous. Hahaha. But hey, got to face your fears at least once in your life time.
Sorry to say, but Nairobi has gotten boring especially for those of us who don’t drink. The only activities around involve partying and drinking and sorry, but not sorry, I’m too old and tired for that. So, traveling an hour out of Nairobi to Kiambu sounds like just the plan. Plus I think I’d enjoy the adrenaline rush. Woohoo. 😳
4. Bungee Jumping.
Queue boyfriend’s activity.
Me, bungee jump. Hahahaha. I must be out of my mind. Free falling off the Sagana bridge, no thank you. I’ve had to many dreams where I am falling, so I shall just take boyfie there, watch him scare the hell out of me as I enjoy a juicy burger. For this one experience, I’ll live vicariously through him.
5. Experience Mauritius.
After being in Diani for three nights, I fell in love with coastal towns and there is something about Mauritius that is very inviting. Plus how cool is it that you can travel the entire island in a few hours. I want to experiences driving around the entire island.
Babe and I have actually been planning to go down to the Island for almost a year now and I found the most beautiful hotel Mon Choisy Beach Resort .
And this time, I shall be very touristy, no lazy mode here. I want to experience the food, the people, their culture. Take in all the sites and just explore. Plus it doesn’t hurt that, if you are from an African country, you do not need a visa. So, a few coins have been saved right there.
Now over to you.
