My eyes opened at around 3am today and I drifted in and out of sleep for the next few hours constantly turning and rolling in an attempt to find a comfortable position. This magical grass was proving to be much less commodious than it had looked on the previous evening and all in all I would rate the sleepability level at -15 and the feeling of being rested and rejuvenated at -74, I just hope at very least my hair has grown during the night?!Continue reading “Day 22 – From Kenya into Tanzania”
I was up at my regular ungodly time and down for my Weetabix and omelette breakfast before my departure from Nairobi. It had been 5 days since my arrival in the city and it was high time to get back on the bike and get some miles covered, next stop Tanzania!Continue reading “Day 21 – Isaac and Jackson”
Another comfy baboon free sleep although I could hear them in the trees during the night, and the increasingly annoying Tomek and his girlfriend Moni from Germany (haha only kidding Tomek you were my favourite really…..or were you?! 😜😎) supposedly had to ward one off from entering our other group mate Chris’ tent the evening prior, so they were happy enough to enter the proximity of humans without fear, cheeky blighters but regardless of this my night remained monkey free.Continue reading “Day 20 – Maasai Mara Bush Skills”
I had a lovely sleep in my wilderness abode and woke at my usual time and today it was required as we were asked to meet at 7am for our departure into the reserve and I wanted to have breakfast before we left.
Breakfast was wonderful another buffet and full of omelette, sausages, rice, vegetables, and more. Tea and coffee of course.
It seems that whenever I am required to rise early for any reason be it work, a tour, or whatever, I am more reluctant than a hibernating animal to wake from my slumber and this morning I felt as if another few hours would have been lovely!Continue reading “Day 18 – Masai Mara Kenya”
I had promised myself a rest day today and it is just what I need. I’ve got the beginnings of a sore throat but I’m trying my best to fight it so I am not going to go crazy today, I still want to look around the city a little though and a walk will probably do me good anyway, especially in the fresh smoggy air of the city so that’s what I will do! I also wanted to find out about a potential safari to the Masai Mara seeing as I have heard that the animals are currently migrating to Kenya from the Serengeti and it is one of the best times of the year to visit that area. Yet again my research-less wanderings have presented something good, lucky James.Continue reading “Day 17 – Nairobi, Kenya”
