Getting Wild in Kenya

Going on a African wildlife safari was a dream come true. 
We visited Aberdare National Park, Lake Nakuru & Masai Mara during our journey through Kenya.
Each reserve provided wildlife spotting & views for days, while the cross country travel to each park was an experience all in itself. 







Like most of Kenya, the safari was a mix of contradictions for me... but it was a truly unforgettable experience that I feel so blessed to have done.

Quiet Moments in Mombasa

Mombasa is the gateway to the Kenyan coast, and it's anything but quiet.
The vibe is electric & tense, and traveling through on a late Friday afternoon felt out of control.
I've not been many places that I felt could erupt at any moment...but I knew it could happen here.
My gut feeling was right, and Mombasa did in fact erupt the evening we left.
Rioting, Hand Grenades & several people wounded and killed.

It was along the eclectic streets of Old Town Mombasa and along the shore at Ft. Jesus that I felt most at ease in this hectic city.





We returned through Mombasa 2 additional times during our trip, but didn't want to risk our safety exploring again.  I am thankful however, to say that I was able to experience the thrill of this chaotic city.

Under the Kenyan Sky

I've recently returned from a journey to Kenya.
A place that was both a challenge & joy for my mind and senses.
Each day I was reminded of the beauty of the world we live in,
 and the fact that no matter where in the world we are...were all under the same sky.







 We all live under the same sky, but we don't all have the same horizon.                                                                                                                            -Adenauer, KonradCheers ~ Lara
