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…

HOME INSPIRATION

HOME INSPIRATION

Redoing a home is much harder than it looks in magazines.  It’s all fun and games while on pinterest and houzz apps until you walk into an actual shop and you can’t find what you were looking for. Or they have it in a different size and color from the size you had wanted. We did a fun living room collage inspiration a while ago. Lost it in our other blog but we are building up on the articles bit…

TRAVEL DECOR: DIANI

TRAVEL DECOR: DIANI

“Then you will travel, and the decor will move you” -Itch, 2017. Everytime I travel. I marvel at the architecture, interior design and decor of my destination. I will take snaps at a cute building or chair or table before.  The natural surroundings and people and culture move me but not as much as the furniture and the ambiance. So in Diani, our villa had amazing furniture. Read about our trip . I am not into rustic furniture  but this…

DOWN IN DIANI:TAKE 2 PICTORIAL 

I decided to do a pictorial  of our recent trip with my friend EveJ who is a travel blogger.

Love&Light, Itch.

MOVIE PREMIER – GET SOME MONEY

MOVIE PREMIER – GET SOME MONEY

Movie premiers, never been to any until about 25.02.2017.  It was an awesome experience. The Kenyan movie Get Some Money was showing at Imax Cinemas at Garden City Mall. We were late, because we are always perennially late for everything but which creative person isn’t? It has been proven scientifically here. Which means we missed the red carpet experience. Thank goodness for selfies and phone cameras, saving lives since 2000. You can check out the really nice professional pictures of the event (which we are…

CAMPING FOR NEWBIES

CAMPING FOR NEWBIES

Alpaca Tent. Will y’a? Meme credits:Google images. Camping is not for the faint hearted. I recently went camping. PS: I am not an outdoor person but somehow I made it through the night. There is something surreal about sleeping in a tent especially when a few hippos are lurking a couple of meters across an electric fence. My search for adventure led me to a tented camp site just outside Nairobi. Have I mentioned I am now hooked on this,…

ZANZIBAR DIARIES : FOODIE ALERT

ZANZIBAR DIARIES : FOODIE ALERT

Zanzibar has amazing food. People forget everything else but the food will stay with them. As we were loitering around Stonetown we bumped into Forodhani. An open space that overlooks the ocean and has tonnes of street food. I thought Zanzibar’s staple dish would be Pilau…Nay! There were several food vendors with a lot of bitings to sample from. This vendor’s “Happiness Table” had grilled lobster, shrimp,crab, octopus, chicken and then tikkas of the same. Served with chapatti and naans….
