Stream of Thoughts

I don’t know what I’m doing. But then again, does anyone? I mean, I know what I’m doing professionally and I know I’m good at what I do, but what an I doing with my life? Where it is headed? There are so many factors to keep into consideration with every decision I make. Will…

Importance of Setting Goals

Sometimes it is difficult to stay on track and feel like yourself the entire time. It’s difficult to always be uplifting, positive and energetic when your body keeps feeling down and you don’t know what to do with your days. That’s why I’ve been finding it so important to set goals and aim to achieve…

Losing Your Way

Sometimes I feel like two completely different people. I can be happy, positive, motivated, inspired and overall always smiling. Other times I can be sad, negative, uninspired and depressed. Sometimes it feels like I completely lost my way and I don’t know how to find it again. What motivated me? What inspires me? How can…

Travel Portugal: The Best of All Worlds

I have to say, I am 100% biased when it comes to Portugal, as I am from there. However, you do get the best of all worlds in this small space! Weather We experience four clear seasons in Portugal, although it never gets too cold (doesn’t stay below 8ºC for long) unless you go to…

Kenya: Mombasa, A Paradise

After finishing up our Safari in Masai Mara, we headed down to Mombasa. I didn’t just want to experience the big city while in Kenya, but I also wanted to visit somewhere by the ocean for a paradise holiday, to enjoy a little bit of the sun and to remind me a little more of…

Kenya: My Safari Camping Experience

For anyone planning a Safari experience in Masai Mara, I offer here my experience so that you may know what to expect when you’re planning your trip. Of course your budget, tour company chosen, size of group, etc., will largely affect where you will be placed and what your experience will be like, but I…

Kenya: A Remote Village

One of the highlights in my trip to Kenya was the chance to be in the presence of a completely different culture, and this was especially true when we visited a small remote Masai village after the Safari. Here, we each got to visit a house they made from scratch, in a village where there…

Kenya: Animals in the Wild

One of the main reasons for going to Kenya was to be in the presence of its wildlife, to see in person the animals that, at home, I had only before seen on TV or in the Zoo. I could never imagine what it would actually be like. We started by leaving Nairobi early in…
