Starting in from Stone Town   If I could describe Zanzibar to someone it would be that it is not like what I have seen on TV or in magazines, it was is so much more than I expected it to be. Every little detail in Stone Town was beautiful. The name Stone Town says […]

Turning Mountains into Anthills

Turning Mountains into Anthills

Kenya / Zoom on… /

I have dreamt of conquering Mount Kilimanjaro, but it is unrealistic to wake up one day and imagine myself fit enough to climb the highest mountain in Africa without any prior practice. But… I could opt to go and climb Mount Longonot. Located in Kenya’s Rift Valley, Mount Longonot was the perfect weekend activity to work […]

Let me introduce you to Rwanda, nicknamed the country of a Thousand Hills! This is because of its hills (obviously), mountains and volcanoes in the west of the country.

Rwanda is front and centre when it comes to development in Africa, from placing a ban on plastic bags to ranking 6th on the World’s Economic Forum Gender Gap Report.

Hidden Gem: Mly Bousselham, Morocco

Morocco / The editorial choices /

It takes the right people to show you the beauty of a city. I never took this to heart until I experienced it a couple of months ago. I visited this city once with my family during the summer. Summer time here means beach and sun, fresh fish, crowds and chaos. I hate sitting on […]

Kit-Mikayi: Rock of Love

Kenya / The editorial choices /

Over the holidays, I got to go on a rock climbing expedition, but this was not your typical rock climbing experience.
