I am increasingly becoming addicted to travelling. Whether it’s a day trip or several days of camping, I’m more likely to take the opportunity when it presents itself rather than decline – especially when it involves being out in nature. There’s nothing like it. It’s therapeutic to the soul. Nature is unpretentious- what you see […]

In my previous post, I let you in on the importance of wetlands to birds. Carrying on with the narrative, today’s post is about the Lake Bogoria and Nakuru waterfowl census as I had promised. Sometime last year, a friend informed me about the census and urged me to register. I intended to but forgot […]

On February 2nd this year I joined other conservationists in celebrating World Wetlands Day – yes, there is such a day. What’s the significance of marking it, you may ask? Wetlands are important as they support livelihoods, the economy and provide ecosystem services like enriching soil, purifying water and sheltering endangered species. If you’ve been […]

Last December I was debating between going for camping in Elementaita with former classmates from photography school, and a Nature Kenya trip to Samburu. Grevy’s zebra: It was great seeing these guys, given that they’re threatened with extinction. It had been a long while since meeting with those photographers, but I had also never been […]

Before I started blogging, I hesitated a lot. I didn’t know what I’d be writing about. Being just another blogger was something I feared greatly. Going with the crowd and following trends has never been my cup of tea. As such, it took me very long before making the first post. But a good friend […]

At the beginning of this year, one of the things I really wanted to do was travel more. When you come to the realization that life is happening every day, enjoying it becomes important. There’s no point in waiting for the day that everything will be ‘perfect’, when you’ll have everything, to finally enjoy life. […]

A continuation of the series covering my favourite subject: birds. As promised, here is Part two! And I won’t tell you too many stories. Dig right in… Hadada ibis Another noisy one! It gets its name from the loud “ha-daa-daa!” calls. It has glossy feathers on its flanks and a prominent red at the top […]

Home sweet home isn’t just an expression for me. It’s reality. I happen to live in a very serene area. The air is fresh, surroundings devoid of noise and we wake up to the sound of birds every day. Actually, we hear birds all day long. How cool is that! Cape Robin-chat I love this […]

I value my sleep. And if you’re anything like me, you do too. Don’t get me wrong-I’m not lazy. I respect bedtime and any interruption to this might earn you a bad slot in my book. Sleep is very important for well-being. Somebody even said: “Sleeping is nice. You forget about everything for a while”. […]

I love celebrations. So when a suggestion was put forward for a day out to celebrate our friend Mwarv’s winning a photography award, I was all in. It’s been a while since I attended a photographers’ hangout. Quite a while. They’re usually enjoyable: being with friends, eating and of course shooting. And shooting means learning […]
