GENEVA CITY GUIDE: THINGS TO DO IN GENEVA IN A DAY

GENEVA CITY GUIDE: THINGS TO DO IN GENEVA IN A DAY

Geneva is beautiful, well every place I go to ends up being beautiful. It is also costly, the nature and Old world architecture however compensates for the uber costly Swiss stuff. If you are visiting or short-staying in Geneva note that all shops (about 90% of them) close at 7 pm. All shops close on Sundays and also on all holidays. All offices & fountains close on holidays too. I made my trip on a Sunday that was also a holiday….

ADVENTURES: ZANZIBAR DIARIES- STONETOWN 

Adventures of Zanzibar continue…. Stonetown is an Old Arab town in Zanzibar. The view of Stonetown from Dar es Salam across the Indian ocean is out of this world!

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…

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. What with the blend of the old world, a bit of modernity and a hint of nautical pleasure along the beaches. This is a trip I would make over and over and over again. 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…

VITAMIN SEA: DOWN IN DIANI

I attended a destination wedding at the South Coast recently well in October 2016. It was my first time to ever be at the Kenyan Coast so I was excited like ten monkeys high on bananas! I got backpacking to go watch my friend get married and see what the Coast had for me. It was a long bus ride, longest ride I have done in ages so next time I am on that plane like a pilot! Everything was surreal from the…

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….
