  • Climbing Kilimanjaro

    On the top of KilimanjaroClimbing Kilimanjaro via Machame Route.

    Total hiking distance: approximately 100km

    Total time: 6 days

    Tour operator: Peace Matunda Tour

    Guide: Bellasix Kaaya

    Day 1
    Hiking Time: 7h
    Distance: 18km
    Habitat: Montane forest

    We were picked up by the Focus in Africa team at Tengeru market and drove directly to Machame Gate (1490m) in Moshi. The group consists of 9 people from all over the world.
    We left Machame Gate around 1pm and had a beautiful walk up through the rain forest. On the way up I met some of our porters and had Alfonsi and Fredi teach me some Kiswahili phrases.

    The walk was pleasant and sunny. Jakob, our cook (by the way excellent food!! And he also cooked on my safari!!), had given us a lunch package including bananas, a muffin, donut and a samosa. At 5pm we arrived at the first camp called Machame Camp (2980m) where Jakob expected us with hot tea and popcorn. The tents were already all set up. We had fish that night and potatoes. Kind of bizarre that I had to climb Kili in order to eat some fish in Tanzania!

  • Easter traditions around the world

    Even if you’re not a particularly religious person, you’ve probably celebrated Easter at some point in your life. And besides its religious meaning, Easter is always a great opportunity to visit friends and family, eat loads of home cooked food and generally be merry.

    But Easter is also a great time for traveling, especially if you are planning to go to countries where Easter is celebrated in a completely different way. Easter traditions around the world vary a great deal, despite the fact that the essence of the holiday is the same. Here are some interesting Easter traditions from around the world.

  • The Advantages of Solo Travel

    Many people never travel because they can’t find someone to go with them. That’s a real shame, because what they don’t know is that when you travel by yourself, you often open yourself up to the greatest adventures and opportunities that you might otherwise miss if you were traveling with a companion.

    In my travels, I have traveled with friends, family, significant others, and by myself and with no disrespect to any of the people I’ve traveled with, the best times on the road have been those times when I’ve been traveling solo.

  • Wandering Life: The Nenets people of Russia

    Since we’ve already posted one entry about the nomads of Mongolia, I though it would be interesting to delve a bit deepr in the various nomadic cultures in the world, and do a short series on other fascinating peoples who still follow a nomadic lifestyle.

    The Nenets people are probably not as well known as the nomads of Mongolia, but their culture is just as fascinating. What’s admirable about these people is that they have managed to carve themselves a home and build a rich and complex culture in one of the least hospitable places on earth.
