FRENCH FOOD: MUST EAT IN PARIS

FRENCH FOOD: MUST EAT IN PARIS

French food – you can never go wrong with French food. From French onion soup, des escargots, duck in all forms, croissants and the over 1000 different pastries. French cuisine is everything! So while backpacking on a budget, here’s a few delicacies I tried out and would highly recommend. We did not do any gourmet or over the top restaurants. No snails either. I would eat snails only if nobody aforementioned it. That being said I am yet to taste…

ZANZIBAR DIARIES : PART 1

ZANZIBAR DIARIES : PART 1

Zanzibar stole my heart! It’s very picturesque, perfect and inarguably the most beautiful place in the world.

The trip to Zanzibar was terrific. It took 2 hours from JKIA Nairobi to Dar Es Salam by air and an extra 2 hours to Zanzibar by the Kilimanjaro…
