Lake Bunyonyi has been on my tour Uganda bucket list for a while now and so when the opportunity presented itself over the weekend, I literally hopped onto it. Lake Bunyonyi is found in Kabale, South Western Uganda and is definitely the most picturesque lake I have ever seen. It’s also a long drive away from Kampala city! Continue reading
I’ve always been a dreamer, so what better way to feed into my dreams than to travel and experience the world for myself. I grew up hearing my dad describe his travel tales in his youth and I promised myself that when I grew up I’d go adventure the world for myself, that way I have stories to tell my children. What excites me the most about travelling to a new place is really the excitement of experiencing life through someone else’s lifestyle. So when I travel I try as much as possible to do as the locals do so that when I leave I take a piece of the culture with me. The most exciting experiences for me are usually exploring the museums and trying out the different local dishes that they have to offer, because they often tell the tales of history and help you appreciate the richness of their culture.

Sunday is easily my favorite day of the week. It’s the one day that I can almost guarantee I will not be working and instead, I’ll be kicking back and catching up on some down time with my family and very frequently, with myself. It’s that one day that I dedicate to renewing my spirit. Continue reading
I had a great time in Pretoria, South Africa last week. The purpose of my trip was to attend a training event that turned out to be absolutely awesome and to top that off, after the training I had a whole day in South Africa to do whatever I liked. Continue reading
A few months ago, I wrote a post on creating time for travel. What I’ve come to realize is that many times our definition of “travel” includes a journey taken abroad or someplace far away, and yet some of the most memorable travel experiences could be waiting right in our backyards… Continue reading
I love the thought of being able to fly just a few hours and experience a whole new world. You can go from mountains to beaches to jungles, from hot to cold, and taste entirely new things you’ve never tried before. I get excited planning my trips to countries I’ve never visited before, getting to know the hidden spots only locals know about, and of course, taking some amazing pictures! Continue reading
Joan: I love to travel because new experiences enrich my life in so many ways. I am a people watcher; I love to learn by watching and staying in the background. Travel allows me to do this and gives me the freedom to do so because no one knows me. Overall I always get a new perspective on life when I travel.
Angela: I love getting out of the little box of the world I live in to experience other people’s culture. It’s easy to think the world ends at the end of your town but traveling helps me broaden my mind. I also love trying out new food and picking up different languages and learning that we are so different but still so similar. Continue reading
My last must-see stop in the UAE was the Shk Zayed Grand Mosque in the country’s capital city, Abu Dhabi. The mosque is the third largest mosque in the world and receives millions of visitors each year…and for good reason. Read on for my top four reasons to visit.
The Dubai Miracle Garden was exactly that – a miracle in the desert. With millions of natural flowers astonishingly shaped and designed into all kinds of things like castles, houses, aeroplanes and spectacular walkways.
Visiting the garden in the night time offered a unique experience of it’s own. The weather was cool, the environment was very calm and the structured flowers came to life with glowing lights all around. The enormous garden is complete with sitting areas, souvenir shops as well as Pizza Hut! Continue reading
Beach day at Cove Beach in Dubai, which is situated right next to the iconic Burj Al Arab, was off to a good start with a scrumptious late lunch accompanied with champagne. The sight of sand and waves instantly gets me in a good mood. I couldn’t wait to swim in the salty water and lay on the golden sand.
