We should start this post with a caveat (probably not the first thing you would like to see as the first sentence in a blog post). So, this feature is a relatively new thing for us as we have just started visiting new spaces in the hope of discovering awesome places that are generally outside the public’s radar. That said, you will probably read about a few places on the blog that are kind of a different experience for us? But with the hope you…Continue Reading “For the Round Pegs in Square Holes (Art Gallery Edition)”

There’s always something about little-known places; the mystery, natural beauty, and their raw form. Bofa Beach could be described as this. The fact that this is a public beach with virtually no one in sight was mysterious; the pristine white sandy beaches and the cascading deep blue waters exposed the natural beauty associated with the Kenyan coast, but the fact that it has somehow managed to remain in its raw form, spared from the harmful effects of human civilization, is surprising. Almost everyone from Distant…Continue Reading “Bofa Beach Beauty”

Howdy Good People! The time doth ripe for another time piece.Who knew I would use Shakespeare in life..Oh, and if you’re wondering what I meant above, well, that makes the two of us! But, well. Let’s get to the Jayraini Travels! Our journey took us right at the heart of the City, The Nairobi Railways Museum. We had previously heard good things about the place and we set out to get the vintage experience. I was tempted to pull a Titanic, too bad Jack wasn’t…Continue Reading “Down The Lunatic Express”

I first heard about dusit D2 from Josie who had always raved about the hotel’s elegance and artistic focus. She had expressed a desire to visit, a few too many times and a personal invitation for lunch from Charles, was all it took to finally get us visit the place that had come highly recommended. Charles is a sales executive at dusit D2 we met at a business event we attended a while back. His calm and interactive persona and his impeccable interpersonal skills reeled…Continue Reading “A Thai Affair: Dusit D2 Nairobi”

Hello…it’s me…I was wondering if after all the blog posts you will read. Yes, I just jumped on Adele’s ‘Hello’ cover bandwagon. I should probably keep my day job a while longer. On this edition, we bring you our first post from the land of sun, sand, and sea, WATAMU, BABYY!!! The beautiful white, sandy, beaches were breathtaking and we encountered some of the most friendly and hospitable people we have ever met. Even this little, shy, fella We were honored to be offered two…Continue Reading “Life Is A Beach :)”

Our visit to Tin Roof Café was the delectable treat we had been planning with Josie for the longest time and it did not disappoint us. The entire experience can be described as a sensory attack that we were not ready for. Alighting from the dusty Karen bypass, we had no idea what awaited us, as the café came as a referral from a friend. Thank God for Google Maps. That was Josie’s idea, I, on the other hand, wanted to go the Kenyan way…Continue Reading “Scenes and Scents: Tin Roof Café”

First post, World!! wow…No pressure. I know our Facebook updates have been pretty cryptic, who puts camping and River Horses in one sentence and pink milk? That’s a thing? Judging from the title of this blog post, it has to do with hippos…or does it…O.k that was the last one, I promise 🙂 Picture this: Loud banter, the occasional bust of laughter, close friends, perfect weather, good music (Include Tiesto’s Red lights here) and a journey into the unknown. That just described the start of…Continue Reading “Cradle Of Hippopotakind”
