OCEAN SPELL

Little hungry soul wanderers dreamt of a day tucked in the ocean breezes wading through the humid air in each other’s company. Fairly a dream, a desire in its mucking state that came knocking its doors, unexpectedly sooner, over a call of laughter sky high and untainted excitement. K1: Heeyyy can I steal you next…

A few months ago, my two friends (Peter and Bernard) and I decided to take on the challenge of the infamous Elephant Hill situated in the Aberdare Ranges southern end, 90 km north of Nairobi. Truth be told, I didn’t know this hiking expedition would be as tough as what people made it seem on…

NGARE NDARE

Another adventure? Yes please! On April Fools day this year, I effortlessly woke up at 5am. Alarm for who? Every fiber of my being was vibrating with anticipation, euphoria surging through my veins.
