Finally ready for a long vacation again! After a nice Christmas at home I headed for Paris, to spend a few days before I continued to Mali. I couchsurfed with Jean Philippe the two nights I stayed there,  and it was really nice to try the opposite of hosting – since I actually haven´t surfed … Continue reading

Just a small sign of life….

Hi to all of you – I have been out of reach for internet for quite some while now, and when I first get there the tastature is totally messed up compared to what Im used to – so writing takes some time!! I have been to the Festival au Desert in Timbuctu, and that … Continue reading

Nairobi – city life and visiting the giraffe centre

I spent my last few days in Nairobi with Sarha, Anne, James and Urbanus. It was indeed some great days enjoying some big-city life and walking in the wonderful parks. We stayed in Africana, and had a good laugh about the rooms….the shower and the toilet worked in both – not too bad! My bed … Continue reading

Last weeks in Kenya

I continued straight to Malindi when I got back from Tanzania, and then I stayed at a nice hotel outside the city centre, close to the village of my friends. It was so nice and quiet there, and the room was kind of cool compared to the wall of heat that met me once I … Continue reading

The kenyan coast – Mombasa and Diani beach

Arriving in the heat of Mombasa was not too bad after I spent some days in almost 40 degrees in the desert. I stayed in the Beracha guesthouse, which is an ok place in the middle of everything, and not too expensive. I met with my friend Ken the next day, and had a great … Continue reading

A small visit to the wild again.

And the Turkana District capital is, to put it mildly, a wild town.” Well, its not really that bad, but it’s a … Continue reading

A small reunion in Kisumu

For a few days I was rushing through Kenya. I had a small stopover in Nakuru and Egerton Unversity, where I met up with James and Sarah. I discovered a very nice hotel just outside the gatre – much cheaper than the one in the university area (Im down in 40 NOK per night!), and … Continue reading
