The World today woke up to a good news of Kylie Jenner hitting her one Billion dollars mark making her the youngest billionaire in history at least until now displacing Mark Zuckerberg. That’s a huge amount that you’ll rarely achieve in your lifetime. Think of the well paid profession and tell me how long you’ll take to reach that net Worth.
However, her achievement has come along with many criticism more so from low class men. Some bringing the question of morality as a justification as to why she’s in that List. But let’s face it, Kylie is very influencial among men and women under the age of 35. Her cosmetic line is the envy of so many people. That’s real impact to me.
Don’t call rich , successful women whores. They do the work and no right thinking man will ever give a woman that amount of cash just to have sex or use her as a sex object in that case. It’s that moment in history, where men are suppose to man up and once more accept the impact women are making. The first step to solving a problem is acknowledging there’s one. And we’ve failed in that. Instead of us doing the work, we get involved in the loser typical blame games. Attacking their sexuality and trying to lower them down.
That brings me back home to our very own, Akothee. A friend asked my opinion on her last months viral photos and didn’t comment, but now I can. “ It’s absolutely Okay. ” This is why. Akothee is a typical reflection of the Kenyan heroic tale, starting off from scratch to actually amounting to something. That’s a story that resonates with all of us. That is a story that inspires us. Anyone in their clean conscience, shouldn’t blame another for doing their best to make a life or even a name in that order for themselves.

What Is Yobai?
Raper or Tradition?
So, how could a man find himself some pleasurable company? He could go to a prostitute that was standard. Sure, in a city. But what if he lived out in a rural farming village? Not much he could do, other than start knocking on doors and asking if he can have sex with the daughter…
November 27, 1095, the first crusade:
923 years ago today, Pope Urban II called all Christians in Europe to go to war against Muslims in order to reclaim the Holy Land.
In the late 11th century, the Turks threatened to invade the Byzantine Empire and take Constantinople. Byzantine Emperor Alexius I asked Urban for help. Wanting to reunite the Church under him by helping the Eastern churches in their time of need, Urban united Christian Europe under him as he fought to take back the Holy Land from the Turks..

The risk of a wrong decision is preferable to the terror of indecision.
The Government has made some of the toughest decisions this year, decisions that have sparked different responses from the country as a whole. Back tracking to the first controversial decisions involving the Chinese and their imperialism, a debate was held in the Senate and the senators failed to reached an agreement. Kenyans are divided between whether China is investing and giving loans for our own benefit or for their own imperialism gain. Kenyans complained about discrimination in SGR(Standard Gauge Railway) and Chinese labor policies but untill now the Government hasn’t decided on the way forward. Whether to leave the issues unsolved or to put in place better policies to fix the problem.
A month ago, many buildings were demolished. Some say it was for good reason others assign political reasons to the whole saga. The fact that ordinary citizens who were evicted during SGR construction haven’t been paid is laughable and a compensation plan should be implemented immediately. But the move by the government to bring down cartel buildings is something that shouldn’t be a controversy. The long held narrative that some people in this city can’t be touched because they know other people is slowly fainting in air. And Kenyans should rally behind the president in leading this move.
The corruption fight and the 2022 politics
The arrest of deputy chief justice has brought a lot of debates and Kenyans aren’t reaching an amicable agreement anytime soon. For the supporters, they say that’s a bold step and a signal that slowly but surely even the president and the deputy president will be brought to account on matters corruption. But for the opposers, they say that the chief justice David maraga is retiring in 3 years, and Deputy Mwilu is the likeliest person to take over. Her supreme Court decision is a threat to 2022 political Alliances and that’s why incriminating her earlier is a step to stop her from taking over. But enough of speculations, let’s wait and see how the case will go today.
East or West.
Kenyans and the Government are torn between China and America; who is the strongest partner. China is leading in giving economical support while America in millitary. The one question no one is asking is; who is more reliable,more trustworthy? We can’t say America with Trump leading,neither can we say China following it’s reputation and history.
Development or 2022 political Alliances
This is especially a big debate in the executive. The president is interested in development(The big 4 agenda) because he has no campaign ahead to worry about as opposed to to his deputy who’ll be running. Bringing in the question of the handshake, whether really it’s a step towards unity and building bridges or a political calculation by the political dynasties. Ordinary Kenyans can’t crack this;what it means ,who will be the horse come 2022 and the future of jubilee party.
Islam or Christian.
Kenya is a religious state by law. One state comprising of many religions. A fortnight ago we celebrated a Muslim holiday that wasn’t explained well to the majority Christians. It orchestrated debates, that the government down played. This shouldn’t be a question of choice but of inclusivity. An understanding that we all worship an awesome God.
Ryan Harwood say that the worst decision is indecision. Whether at national or individual level we must make a choice in these grey areas. And every step made by the government shouldn’t be a moment of questioning intentions. Some things are better left unasked just to give people in power an opportunity to serve. You trusted them with the job last year,now it’s their time to deliver. All of us should understand that indecision is the enemy of progress and not saying yes to one possibility is saying no to all of them.
The arrest of deputy Chief Justice Mwilu, the demolition of cartel buildings, public Chinese imperialism talks and South Africa’s president response to Trump. These are good signs of Africa and Kenya as a country on the rise.
As a young person nothing matters so much to me than seeing leaders I can look upto. For such a long time, I’ve always looked on the West for leadership models. For the first time am finding one in Kenya- president Uhuru Kenyatta. He is really working maybe because he has nothing to loose. His main mission is to fix the country from vices and malpractices.
Kenya is leading the Continent after South Africa and if the trend goes on as it is, then surely safe Civic spaces for youth is guaranteed. A few days ago, the president paid a visit to US president Donald Trump; a meeting that strengthened strategic partnership alliance and brought to fruition plans to construct a highway from Nairobi to Mombasa. This will be big for Kenya. On Thursday, British prime minister Theresa May will be visiting Kenya after visiting Nigeria’s president Buhari tomorrow. This will be the first time a Briton prime minister visits Kenya in 30 years.
In September Canadian prime minister Justin Trudea will be visiting Kenya on a world climatic summit to be hosted here in Nairobi. A summit that will not only place Kenya in the global stage but also be an opportunity to showcase Kenya’s potential not only as Africa’s economic hub but also as an example of Africa’s good leadership.
Kenya is on the rise not because big world leaders are visiting it, but because Kenyans understand that a country rises when all of us combine hands. The president is leading the fight on corruption, through DPP Haji.
Big and small, cartel or not, official or civilian, president or Voter. We are all equal before the law.
Africa and specifically Kenya’s voice have been ignored for a long time but president Kenyatta is setting a new course. He looks both West and East for support. He’s partnering with both China and America alike. As he always says,Kenya and Kenyans will always come first.
If all African leaders could follow the lead of president Kenyatta,then no doubt Africa as a Continent will be the third wave,globally, economically, technologically and politically. Africa will be making their own decisions like whether to use the US dollar or not just as EU did last week. As we are doing these,we must also be worry of those who come to us with honey while deep inside they have deeper detrimental motives. Those powers that are investing in Africa’s poor Countries with Future agenda to fulfill.
The meeting with President Donald Trump
was fruitful. We discussed security, especially the fight against terrorism. We also discussed how to increase trade and investment between our two countries and how US companies can help create jobs for our youth.
We are rich,we don’t need imperialism,we just need good leaders and policies. Dictatorial methods, Comradeship and Communism are worst form of leadership that shouldn’t be applied anywhere, institution or state, in Africa.
It takes 50 min to cover about 100 metres in a heavy traffic jam in Nairobi an equivalent time taken to cook 29 normal dishes in an average hotel. At an average of a metre per second, you could cover 3KM with that time approximately a walk from town to Wilson Airport.
Yesterday, it took me three and a half hours to move from town to Rongai, for the first time I felt the pain of traffic. Besides that it was raining. Many city residents were stuck in the City and matatu fares were sky high. I watched a passenger sleep, wake up and sleep again. Everyone’s eyes were flooded with exhaustion.
The experience took me back to last year, on a KTN governor’s debate, in which Governor Sonko promised to fix the traffic problem. It makes me wonder whether the governor and the entire city hall fraternity are deliberately ignoring this problem or they’re just not interested in it or maybe they don’t know how to do it- At At last, they’re in Office and they have 5 years of painless salary.
This is what I’d recommend if at all they’re slightly caring. To fix traffic in the City, Kenya Revenue Authority should double or triple import tax on small vehicles. Over 50% of city traffic is caused by personal vehicles which mostly carry one person, with 3 or 4 seats going empty. Increasing tax, will limit the number of people who can afford cars and by implication reducing their number and pollution(as a result of vehicles exhaustion). Personal vehicles occupy a lot of space that could rather be utilized well by having big buses transporting people home.
Another way is by denying public transport vehicles city Access. Matutu drivers drive recklessly with no regard to traffic rules. Disorganization results in chaos a trait that best describes the matutu sector. These drivers are rude and they all want to occupy a lane at the same time. Personal vehicle owners are organized and functional traffic lights are enough to manage them. Cheap Rental bikes should be stationed at the bus terminals (Around Nyayo,muthurwa and Ngara) where the PSVs will be parking to facilitate entry into the city.
Getting rid of other services from the city could also help. Nairobi city is the financial hub of East Africa, it’s the country’s administrative headquarters and also the headquarter to many international organizations. It’s either we expand the city to include Rongai,ngong and kitengela or we make other towns like Mombasa and kisumu centres of other services.
Failure to act is not only costing the country a lot but will as well continue to deflate the economy. Surely we waste an average of 6 hrs daily on traffic, we could do something constructive and productive with this time. We could make the city a 24 hour economy. Instead of borrowing a lot why don’t we save this time for Kenyans to make some money for the economy. An average middle class Nairobian wakes up at 5 am and gets back to bed at 11 pm. Nairobians deserve better treatment after this determination and hard work. Doing that 5 days a week, 20 days a month is no joke.
Is either we act or we let nature frustrate our lives.
It’s either we pressure our government to do something least they continue feeding on your hard earned cash. You pay them , you make them ride in those cars and you pay for their rent in those posh neighborhood;they should pay you back as well through rendering of services.
If you can make your mark in Nairobi, then you are a made man.
Last year jubilee part under the able leadership of Uhuru Kenya won the general elections. Minority believe that the system was rigged while majority believe that former prime Minister Raila Odinga was outsmarted. Neither of these reasons justify why President Kenyatta won on a landslide. Infact, it has nothing to do with the president as a person.
What do Kenyans love? What do they consider during elections? Are Kenyans influenced by tribal kingpins?
Kenya and politics globally have never been determined by political candidates themselves. About 15% of an election outcome is determined by the candidate, the other 85% is always the party branding. Taking Kenya as a case , with a keen interest in the 2017 general elections; jubilee party sold itself as Kenya’s favourite party.
For a party to be favourite, first it must be liked by most citizens. What’s jubilee party symbol? It’s a handshake and color red. What comes to mind when you see red? It reminds us of our daily struggles. For a student maybe boring lectures. For a middle class, maybe Early morning commuting. What about a handshake? It symbolizes unity. It reminds us that we are and always will be stronger together. That the country must always come first.
Look at the previous parties that have been producing winning candidates;Former president Moi during the Moi era under KANU and Former president Mwai Kibaki in 2002 under NARC. All these parties have national symbols embbed in them.
What are national symbols for Kenya? It’s the Lion and the 4 colours of our flag:black representing the heritage, white for peace, red for struggles and green for nature. All citizens all over the world always fall in love with their national symbols. Look at your friends , look at your house and look at your closet. Are these four colors dominating? What’s your favourite colour? Chance are for men,it would be black and for ladies it would be pink. But which colour is dominating.
Now that you understand the national symbols and how you voted. Do you agree? Look at the losing parties every general elections and the kind of slogan and the colors they use in designing their Logos. Ask kenyans and they’ll tell you that they’ll always go for a jubilee T-shirt against NASA. 3 in every five neutral friends will go for a red, white or a black T-shirt and not orange.
Be part of change: it’s the only way you’ll ever give back to this world
“We take turns sleeping, we eat and we live,”these are the adjectives the world has labelled us. Yeah, we do all these but we dream as well. Born between 1996 and 2016 is such a blessing because the world is ours to rule and change is ours to embrace. We constitute about 40%of the world’s population and 35% in Kenya. We are the most diverse generation there’s and we are the generation the world is calling upon to impact.
Take a keen look at the world around us:The corrupt systems, the hatred, the hopelessness and the daily injustices. The world is bleeding,the world is bursting in tears. There’s no one to save the world and we are her best hope. We are change markers.
Business insider describes us as “millennials on steroids” who are leading change. This is because we have a unique DNA; a blend of all other generations strengths.
We are the most diverse and inclusive generation. We all at least have that one friend from a different tribe, religion or even race. We enjoy working with them. Diversity makes us strong,corrupt free and citizens of the world. We don’t identify ourselves by our tribes but by the knowledge and opinions we share. We can easily intermarry.
Technology shapes our daily lives and our worldview. Our loyalty is to our screens. We wake up and the first thing we check is our social media platforms. Twitter to catch up with daily happening, Instagram for our daily instant gratification and WhatsApp to keep in touch with our loved ones. Communication isn’t only with our friends in Kenya but also globally. Through it, we’ve managed to learn how other countries work and function,what our friends from other countries are doing to better the world and what’s working and not.
We’ve learnt that for change to happening, people must embrace their true selves. A change in state of mind is key. The mere doing of stuff to fit into a club is what is making change difficult for the previous generations. Politicians get elected and they enroll into contests shows of who has the most following, who has the latest model and who is the coolest. They prioritize the club more than the voters- ordinary people. They are motivated by who’s the most powerful,who can access the president and who can control an officer in an institution. Our main motivation is life,food and passion. We are interested more in seeing our parents, friends and the people around us thriving. What makes us Happy is service not only to God but humanity as well.
Generations get influenced by age, societal norms and technology. Previous generations have been influenced more by the first two while we’ve been influenced by all of them. A sense of balance exists in us. Hybrid is always better.
We need to act, we need to ensure that technology works for us and not against us, or we will be ruined by impunity that accompanies it.
We don’t watch television anymore. We value our time. An hour of news and ads could be slashed into a minute of a YouTube clip. We are less prone to “fake news”. We understand better that media houses serve the interest of the elites that’s why we’d rather rely on our Twitter friends.
With all these traits, we believe that nothing in this world is impossible. We are the campaigners, why not campaign to support our own. We are the brains, why not use our brains to support our own. We are the leaders, why not grab a clipboard and run for offices ourselves.
“We are the change we have been waiting ” Former US president Barack Obama.
By doing what we must do,by embracing the best in one another, by standing up for ourselves and others. That’s the way we become unstoppable. That’s why we are unstoppable. A revolution.
Internet influence is an act that both males and females undergoes through. A few weeks ago, a classmate of mine came to me asking why guys like watching porn. I didn’t think about it that much at that particular pointing in time until yesterday. I deeply thought about it and how it influences guys perception on females.
I took it upon myself to WhatsApp random guys contact in my contact list and you won’t believe this but it’s true, that most guys watch porn to up their sex game. For a long time I took this as a non issue in our society until last week, when I bumped into a porn clip from one of my classmate’s laptop.
I asked him out just to get his view on this.
You know what Collins, every guy atleast once must watch these clips to learn. It makes you better in bed. Imagine making your girl behave like the pornstar girl-all that moaning, screaming.
“Really? Has it affected how you perceive girls? “I asked.
“Well, I have to confess this, I don’t pretty much give women that much value, I believe in a one night stand thing. Get her super, watch a movie and have your ticket between her legs. And most of the time, all I see is that well rounded ass, and how am longing to grab it. I know it’s a bad thing, but really it’s also fun and entertaining. ” He elaborated.
Then I went to a few girls to get their opinions on this.
“It’s embarrassing really how guys view us in this modern era, we girls also want to be a part of society, we don’t dress as an invitation but to embrace our true identity. And shame on those guys who view us as sexual toys.” Grace, Bcom student.
“Do you girls also watch porn? ” I asked.
Out of curiosity, its a normal thing for every human, but just once or twice for girls unlike guys who get addicted to it.she replied.
“How does porn addiction from guys influence how they view you.. And first have you ever been a victim from them”
“Yes, I have been, I remember one day walking across school and this guy friend of mine slaps(spanks) me from behind. I felt helpless. I didn’t wanna react because of the embarrassment that would cause me and I have so many friends who feel uncomfortable on how guys perceive them. I think porn makes them demean women and the fact that addiction plays so much in their mind, most of time they lose focus of serious activities in their daily lives.”
It’s a proven fact that frequent Exposure to dirty clips ruins your mind on how you view people from the opposite sex. Most of the time sex will be the only thing running In your mind. Have witnessed this first hand, its a path you don’t want to tread on for the sake of yourself, our girls and our entire society. Internet indeed is a good thing, but let’s stop consuming its vices. Let’s make it a tool to develop ourselves for the best. It’s a hard thing to turn our back against, that’s why we are asking for help from our female colleagues, because together we can achieve equity.
Ever wondered why most females lead lives beyond their means? Well, most of you will attach that to the existence of sponsors (older money donors for the selfish motive of misusing girls) but well that’s just like 20% of the girls. What about the other 80%? Well;here are the secrets the other 80% of the girls do that I recommend every guy should practice.
Most ladies spend a huge junk of time reading self help books and romantic novels. For a long time I thought it was unproductive until I started small talks along these two genres of book and believe me these books play a very vital role in most girls lives. For guys I’d recommend classics and a bit of self help books. Start with one book monthly, it helps.
Well, most of them overdo it, but its a good thing that I think we guys should adopt. Daily showering is a must for every guy. Healthy eating is also a must in our daily to do list. Being clean doesn’t mean you are girly, it means you value your life so much. Why would you spend kshs. 1000 on a dinner with a girl while not spend the same amount on dinner for yourself. Ask any girl, they’ll never do such a damn thing unless they’re crazily in love with you.
Girls really value themselves so highly. Did you know a girl may have a crush on you and will never ever open up? Did you know that a girl could be poor and will never allow that get past her hostel or apartment door? These are good things, they reveal how psychology stable a person is. They foster an understanding that no matter how bad a situation is, my value is way higher than the Situation itself. As guys, let’s embrace the same mentality without forgetting our masculine role.
4.Art of faking.
I’ll be honest, ladies can fake anything up. They know how to use their feminine appeal to get anything they want. They use it in manipulation and even deception. They have mastered how to fake external love. They employ this in confusing guys into doing basically anything they want. Is it bad? Yes, but who cares. Why don’t you as a guy employ the same.
Have never met people who are really good in creating friendships like ladies. Their friendship bond is so strong to an extent they share the darkest of secrets with each other. This makes them vulnerable as they’re very easy to understand if you can be an assert to their best friend. It’s also good on their down moments because atleast they have a shoulder to lean on. They are very good in peer mentoring. For guys, it’s very rare but it’s an opportunity for us too to start working on our friends. We have allies as I call them but not genuine friends. We don’t peer mentor unless it’s at church when we are forced into small mentorship groups.
People would rather live a fake life than proudly embrace the true life within them-Unknown.
I look at youths and how crazy they are going just to live the life a celebrity or a friend is living. We forget that each and everyone of us was wonderfully and uniquely created. Each one of us was born with a gift and each one of us should embrace those difference for the world to prosper.
I was born a queit and a jovial person depending on the occasion. I was born with a passion for English and a reader too. You were born to be something else. Just imagine an introvert trying to lead an extroverted kind of lifestyle,wouldn’t that person look a little weird?
Why do we lie to our friends about the kind of people we are. What do we get from being fake? We lie from the things we posses, where we hangout, the kind of meals we take to even the kind of clothes we put on. Many of us are leading other people’s life. Will I ever be complete if I start leading the life of my favourite actor or celebrity? Of course no.
We crave for likes and followers on instagram, Facebook and even on Twitter. Be online on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 10pm 🕙 and you’ll understand how far youths are willing to go to get followers. We’re forced to retweet, like and comment not because we are willing but because we know by the end of the day I shall have reached 2k followers. These forms the foundation of our talks and discussions be it at work or school the following day. We are longing to brag to our friends about how powerful we are becoming. Well… Take a step back. Is that really being powerful? How is that going to make you lead the life of your dream. Imagine if the same energy was to be channelled towards our goals in life, our real desires or the things that are truly important to us. Which kind of world would we create.
Still on instagram and the things that inspire us. Which kind of pictures do we post? Definitely everyone posts their best but imagine getting a negative comment on the very picture you so highly esteem. Won’t you feel like the whole world is abruptly cracking? If you really believed your picture was good then why do you allow a negative comment get into you.
Fakeness will never make our life any better than it is. A man can only reach his or her full potential if he embraces his true self. Faking where you stay, where you studied, the stuff you own, the feelings deep inside your heart or even your thinking isn’t going to make us better. The first step to full realisation is to live our real life, that kind of life you live in the comfy of your bed. And if you’re getting confused about who you really are, then look at yourself and the thoughts you lead when alone. What makes me really me? -a kung-fu panda movie quote. That’s the question you ought to ask yourself and live that answer out loud. Shine! But remember not to settle for mediocrity or a life way below your potential.
Christmas is a season for giving and sharing love and nothing feels as good as getting the best gift for your loved ones. This could be your mum,dad,brother, sister,boyfriend or girlfriend. For lovers of travelling, I’d recommend an adventure to nowhere but for those who just want to have a nice time during holiday, these are the best gifts to give to kindle some sparks on your loved ones:
1.Something they genuinely desire.
There’s no magic,the only way out of it is to ask them what they desire most in their lives. It could be a Jewellery or a watch or a flower or just some wonderful time. This is definitely the best gift you’ll ever give.
Yes,Love.People may act like they’ve got it all figured out but there’s nothing as heartbreaking as a person with everything without love. Everyone needs to be loved even those not worthy of it. Love is a better gift than even a gold watch. Surprise that special someone with pure love without anything on their end.
Closer to love but not similar. This is genuinely getting interested in what your loved one is doing and giving them full support. It could be cooking or playing or even their job or school work and showing them full support. Show them how much they inspire you through the activity they do.
Ooh yeah,I know deep inside you’ll be saying -what change does it make? And to answer I’ll say-it changes everything. Well people feel special when they get appreciate for something they did or they are doing. Just a pass a note appreciating someone for something you honesty admire or like about them.
This reminds me of the recent Christmas movie I watched-The best Christmas present…At the end, it turned out the best Christmas present was the person.Just you being there for that special someone is enough. Put your phone aside and give the person your full attention. Smile at them and make them believe they’re everything in your life.
6.Act of service.
Volunteer and do to them something you’ve never done to them before. Leave them wondering where that came from.
Compile an episode of the best moments of their time during the year and make them a short movie or a slideshow for example what Facebook does to it’s users.
8. Singing out loud.
This works out when you’re a terrible Singer. It will be so joyous seeing that effort. It will be funny but you shall have made their day. If you’re a pro,good for you. This is one of the perfect moments a loved one would like to experience.
Everyone looks forward to boxing day after Christmas. Have something for them in the box like a book or a watch or even a fully grown Teddy bear. I look forward to this date and you should surely do.
10. Random customized cards or texts or phone calls.
Worth a try definitely. Thank me later.
Comment some of the gifts you’re planning to give this Christmas and remember there’s a Christmas gifts for active followers. Just like,comment and share if you find the posts interesting. Have a merry Christmas and a prosperous 2018.
This is something I have always thought to be totally crazy, but I still want to do it! What is wrong with me? Nothing. I just love the adrenaline, to push myself to the limits. Just because..

Travelling inspires your wanderlust,ignite your itinerary, and invite you to make meaningful discoveries large and small and that’s the inspiration behind my crave for travelling.
A few months ago I started living out my childhood dream of being a Traveller and a Television Journalist.Many of my friends have been asking where I get money to travel and that’s why in today’s article am taking you through my entire travelling process guaranteeing you maximum fun at the cheapest possible cost.
Traveling is fun but very expensive.A lot of people thirst for travelling but are scared of the cost that comes along with it. If you ever feel scared just remember:A journey of a thousand miles starts with a spark of joy and ends with a gleaming of meaning.
In the few months I have travelled I have learnt one of the most important art and that’s the art of blending in.
Before you travel;
1. Try and google the area for familiarization. Know the best places to visit within that area and what makes them really the best.
Read more about those places to enable you ask appropriate questions during the visit.
2.Your backpack must have enough clothing and first aid kit. If you’re allergic take safety precautions like carrying your medicines. Of cause No traveller misses a camera in her backpack.
3.Ensure you have enough money and the place you’re visiting is safe.
On the day of traveling,whether you have your own private car or using a public transport ensure you arrive at the destination relatively early this is because you’re a visitor and you never know how the place is. You could be putting your life or the person picking you up in danger. I prefer arriving between 10am and 4pm. Personally I don’t like eating while am travelling but this is dependent on the person.
On the destination;
1. Try and blend in with the locals. This has been on top of my priority list in technically everywhere I travel to. Blending in helps you get favours not only in getting the best treatment but also the best recommendations. There’s no expert better than a resident of a particular place and nobody understands the place better than him.Not even google compares with a person who has lived in place in his entire lifetime.
2.Go for 2 star hotels. They’re cheap because they are still in their growth stage and just a small hint …you can always bargain the price. Their services are equally as better as the 5 star hotels only that they lack exposure. Their attendants mostly are very welcoming and courteous because they want you there next time.
3.Traveling the place can be quite expensive if you don’t blend in well with the locals.They’ll mostly overcharge you but here is a secret: Never ask the conductor how much when in his matatu,he’ll obviously know you’re not from the place,so to get saved from this..always use kshs.200 note in paying for your fare and just stare at the the conductor trust me he’ll give you back the correct balance. The same applies in local hotels and fruit venders or even shops.
4. If you don’t have a car,it is better to strike a deal with a local motorists to carry you around. It’s expensive yes but not as compared to hiring a car to travel around. I prefer motorists because I make them my tour guides not to forget the discounts because they’re always in flocks. They know the best places to have lunch and they can always pretend to be your relative providing you free access to some beautiful places to visit.
5.Make friends.You can always make recommendations using these friends to your buddies in need of traveling to these places.
Friends can always offer you short term accommodation depending on the kind of friendship you have.
Now go out and travel because you definitely have all it takes.Quick recap:
1Fare to and fro.
2.Meals,Camera,First Aid kitand Clothing
But you can always start by touring your local city as you advance.
Follow events on Facebook, some do have good traveling deals to places.
As you are going on with your festive celebration, always remember it’s a season for giving and sharing. Share love,food,gifts with your neighbors. Spark some joy on the kid next door or home. HAAAPY FESTIVE.
