Hello 2015!

It is here with us. I hope you bye-Feliciad 2014 and are ready for new challenges (yes, all those things in your to-do lists…I sure hope you will follow through). Remember how we thought 2030 was kingdom come? We are getting there. Fast! The days are literally flying by. Soon enough we will be out of these njaanuary manenos. Phewks!

I stumbled on this blog post and at that point, the idea of blogging about these was exciting. Now,  I am not so sure. What do you think?

Mida Creek Sundowner Dhow Ride – The Real Utamu

So much has been happening. My peoples are getting married (congratulations Ann, your wedding was just the one!), baby shower invites nearly every weekend, engagement shoots flooding my timeline etcetera etcetera. Well, I am just here sipping Dasani. This is the beauty of life. Enjoying every step of your journey, celebrating your milestones and joining your peoples when they mark theirs. We tend to compare our journey with others, yet we know that He who orchestrates all this has a grand plan for each and everyone of us. Besides, I cannot begin to think how mundane it would be if all our stories were similar. Jeez! Who would read my blog because technically then, we would all be writing? 😀

I really needed to pause (thank the heavens for off-days) for a minute and take it all in… My journey that is :). My routine this week has been eat, sleep, r̶a̶v̶e̶  sleep some more, repeat. Oh, and also trying to figure out where the days are flying to.

All that aside. Remember my visit to this amazing place in Watamu? This sundowner dhow ride was yet another one of my greatest moments down at the Coast. Our team had had a busy day and only assembled at the Turtle Bay Resort, Watamu, at around 5.00 p.m, which was actually a tad late for the sundowner. The very helpful lady at the reception lounge helped us to our waiting vans. The creek is about a 10 minutes drive away from the resort so it was a pretty short drive.

I always try to lose myself totally when travelling or trying out a new place.
