There are numerous international travel apps but very few work if you are from Kenya and don’t have plans to cross the boarders soon.  So what are some of the apps that you can use from inside our boarders and still derive maximum satisfaction and functionality?

It is interesting how we have entrenched a last minute culture to our lives even when we know it can be risky. Going to the immigration office to get a passport is one thing never to be done on a last minute basis.

I’ve been to many place, I’ve seen so many faces but I have never seen so many signs depicting the level of fleecing going on at Paradise lost, this might just be me.

I found a solution to the over expenditure when I jumped in on an…

Mount Longonot is one of those places you can go for fun or for the challenge, either way be prepared. On the day we were there, the recording for the ultimate challenge show that airs on KTN was also being done. Following the group around gave me insight on a number of things. Dress appropriately. The terrain is pretty much dusty and steep with places that require…

You need it, rather, you deserve it. You deserve to feel the breeze of a thousand winds brush your skin. You deserve to smell the virgin air atop the peak. You deserve to see the beauty that this place holds. The beauty that I can never be able to put in words or pictures captured. Though I will try, I still insist that you need to take…

Tour In Style Tell any Kenyan about travel and you will be slapped with a furry of cost implications and complaints of how expensive it is . The myth that travel and local tourism is costly is just that, a myth. However, for the doubting Thomases, I am willing to cast a challenge every month and with only three thousand Kenya shillings in hand, tour and review…

Nothing brings a smile to my face than the roar of the 2000cc Subaru on open roads pedal to the metal. I have been accused of being a speed junky, that I shall not deny, but to you, I want to be known for my ability to give you awesome locations to visit on those boring days. I am Robert, Your road trip guru. Unfortunately, most of…
