Fleetingness

For it doesn’t matter how you may feel at one moment, the fleetingness of it all makes it redundant holding on to that feeling forever. For if you are happy, sad, scared, excited, it does not mean that will be your everlasting sentiment. Don’t think, just because you are sad or scared, that you must…

Kenya: Swimming With Dolphins

As I have mentioned before, I truly feel whole when I’m swimming in the ocean. It’s when I feel the most content and free, where I feel like I can let myself go without worries. That’s why I was so excited to go snorkelling for the first time off the coast of Mombasa (around the…

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…

Kenya: A Trip to Another World

Recently, an opportunity was presented to me: the chance to see the other side of the world, something I had never done before. I’ve always wanted to travel more, visit new places, try new food, enjoy new music, be in the presence of different cultures and see new sights. I’d never imagined the first opportunity…

Choosing Happiness… is Hard!

Sometimes you have those “back to reality” moments, where it just feels like the veil of happiness you’ve been putting up for months suddenly comes down and you’re able to see life for what it truly is: unstable. Choosing happiness is easy when nothing is going wrong. When it’s sunny outside, the birds are chirping,…

Recharging My Batteries

We all get worned out. We all go through periods in life where we’re completely out of energy, feel exhausted all the time, anxiety is high, creativity is low, etc. We all go through phases when it feels like we absolutely need to recharge our batteries and get back to our full potential. I’ve recently…

It’s Peaceful Underwater

The world can be a loud place. Gravity can be a little too strong some days. Streets can feel limiting at times. That’s why I love swimming. I love diving in the limitless ocean and hearing the muffled up sounds, the quietness surrounding me. I love the sensation of not having to give in to…
