Eating & Travelling Across East Africa

Hi, you. How are you today? I hope you are well. Today, let’s get a little visual. I’d like to take you through a picture show. A picture show of what? A picture show about eating and travelling through several East African locales spanning three countries. Are you up for the ride? If so, let’s begin. Dining and Adventuring in Dar es Salaam & Zanzibar I was so looking forward to digging into this beautiful bowl of creamy mussels—I was in the only place that I know of in Dar es Salaam where mussels are on the menu—but it was … Continue reading

Show & Tell: Food, Zanzibar, Family & Friends and, of Course, Me! 🙂

It’s that time again: time for a little show and tell. What should you expect to see this time? Lots and lots of pictures of food across the region, pictures of Zanzibar—it seems it’s Zanzibar season in my life because I’ve been to Zanzibar not once but twice since the pictures from my last Instagram recap post—and unexpectedly, quite a few pictures of me, some even with friends and family.

It all began last summer as I was planning a 3-week family road trip across Tanzania. I sort of stumbled across it by accident. After three amazing finds using this service, though, I think I can rule … Continue reading

Uber, the Holiday Season, and Dynamic Pricing

I had never used Uber until I wrote this post about Uber launching in Dar es Salaam. Since then, it has been a Godsend! With its attractive rates, and the fact that you can call for transportation at any time without necessarily knowing a specific taxi driver, or its great mapping tool which allows you to call for a ride even when you are not too sure how to describe where you are, I know I will be using Uber again and again. With the holiday season — and its many parties — upon us, call or schedule an Uber to drive you … Continue reading

21 Rwanda Instagram Photos & Lots More!

The second half of this year has seen me doing my share of travelling. First it was to Northern Tanzania, then Uganda, Rwanda, and now back to Uganda again. My Instagram gallery has been mirroring a similar route, though also including destinations such as Nairobi and Mikumi National Park. I’ve had lots of fun sharing these pics with my followers on Instagram, and since I know that many of you, who read this blog, are not active Instagram users, I thought I’d share the best of those pictures with you here. I hope you like them. Please be sure to let … Continue reading
