I have always found solace in getting lost. Getting to a dead end and asking myself “Where does this  end really leads to?” I have always enjoyed exploring places I hear less about, places that photos on the internet are only from Google Earth.

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.

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…
