I love to travel, meet new people and experience new places. I love to go off the beaten path and get to know a place from a grass roots level. Talking to locals and asking advice is always best. As soon as I get back from one trip, it’s out with the map/internet planning the next one.

    Oh how I miss seeing a woman carrying a load on her head. Lived 45 years in Africa and that is one of the things I miss. Just love the bike parked by the waves as if it has a life of its own! Was born in Kenya. Lovely pic.

  • Thank you Fram, I’m glad it brings back good memories for you.

    My wife and I really love Africa, we were in South Africa in 2002 and visited Kenya last year. The timing wasn’t great, it was shortly after the disputed election. Things were a bit tense in Nakuru, so we decided not to stay there and went straight on to the Mara. Our driver Sammy was a littte nervous….. he kept a Panga under his seat for protection.

    Exciting times……………….Brendan.

    Wonderful shot, the yellow of the bucket and her dress makes it zing against the colour of the sea.
