I LOVE immersing myself in a new culture and getting to know new people. I’ve always been intrigued by what other places look and feel like. Discovering the sheer beauty in any new place for me comes naturally, especially capturing it on my camera. As a full-time day dreamer and wander luster, I find myself envisioning all kinds of places I would like to live. Continue reading
I must say, I’ve always been fascinated at the thought of swimming with or just seeing dolphins and so when my friend Cherie and I visited the beautiful coastal city of Hurghada in Egypt, and I found out that this was a common activity there, I knew already that the trip was worth it.

Aside from touring the pyramids which I talk about here, there was lots to see in the historic city of Cairo, Egypt – all of which can be accomplished in one day!
The four sites below are my highlights. However, aside from the Egyptian Museum, a Papyrus Institute, the Coptic (Christian) area and the River Nile on a Felucca (boat) that I talk about below, we saw so much more… Continue reading
I recently travelled to Cairo with my good friend Cherie and our first stop was a tour of one of the seven wonders of the ancient world – The Pyramids of Giza. Continue reading
I don’t really get worked up about travelling. Typically. It’s usually a fairly straightforward routine. Pack at the last minute, feel bad about leaving my nearest and dearest back home as I go gallivanting across borders, then, finally trying to figure out how the heck I’m going to get to the airport. No one will tell you this, but you need someone you can rope into your small talk for that ride. You do not want to be pulled into a discussion about politics for two main reasons;

- 90% of the time, these conversations are in vernacular and do not have subtitles accompanying them
I am currently in the process of planning a trip abroad and if all goes according to plan, it will be a magnificent eight days touring four beautiful cities, with a close friend of mine.

It is but a momentary escape from reality; my reality. It allows me to experience variety and difference. Travel doesn’t only open up my mind, but it stretches it through the new sights, the new smells, the new tastes, the new feelings and of course the new people I meet. Continue reading
The last two days of 2016 were incredibly amazing. I travelled to Jinja town with three wonderful ladies and got to share in a fun and tranquil all girls getaway. Continue reading
It’s the perfect time to take stock of 2016 as well as plan for 2017 and all in all, there is so much to be thankful for, and so much to look forward to as well.
First off, I’m definitely thankful that Khukyenda was born. Three months, thirteen blog posts and a Facebook page later, I’m glad this blog is in existence. What started out of sheer curiosity and boredom has begun to open doors and create opportunities for me to develop one of my great passions, as well as meet and interact more with like minded people (that would be you) and the best part – have an awesome time! Khukyenda is looking forward to so much this year, and I’ve jotted just three 2017 travel goals below. Continue reading
Over the weekend, I was thrilled to visit my home area of Eastern Uganda and this time, not just stop in Mbale (my village) but travel further northeast to Kapchorwa district to take a look at the beautiful Sipi Falls. Continue reading
