  1. Absolutely love your blog and that’s such a beautiful photo of you! Your road trip sounds phenomenal! I’m continuing my round-the-world journey and will be visiting Africa in the next few months. My dream is to volunteer on an elephant refuge! I’ve been told that there are some in Kenya, but do you have any thoughts?

    Happy and safe travels to you! 🙂

    1. Thank you Jacqueline!
      Your round-the-world journey sounds just as epic, its great that your not just planing it but are actually doing it! Totally inspired to do the same!

      I think you will love Africa! And when you’re in east africa, especially Uganda, let me know, I would love to show you the hidden bits, and the best bits of my country too! Kenya is beautiful, there are loads of animal orphanages that take up volunteers, my favorite being the giraffe center, i’m not too sure about elephants but i’ll ask my kenyan friends and do some research and let you know!

      Happy globe trekking!

    1. I never thought I would be inspiring people with this blog, I just wanted to share my travel tales, and write from the heart. Thanks for the love Carissa! 🙂

  2. Oh I must read everything here. Your dream is amazing and your story inspires me! If I have children, I want them to have dim memories of loads of different smells, skies and foods.
    To travelling!

  3. Hey! I found your wonderful blog while looking around to learn about kayaking and rafting in Jinja, and loved your posts! Thanks for the great tips, pictures, and stories! I’m living in Kampala for the summer, do you have any other tips on adventures around your amazing city?

    Happy travels!

  4. “Not all that wander is lost.” This is very likely the finest statement I have heard in the recent times. I must say that you are destined, destined to tap into the soul of the Universe. It can never get better than that! And you definitely will meet other enthusiasts on the journey, and I am one of those who fathom the marvels of this world beyond their finest magical.

    Go Go, Elizabeth!
