Stepping into 2018


Sipping on hot lemon, wondering how its 5:00 a.m. while the last 8 sleeping hours really feel like dozing off for just 8 minutes. Pinching myself to stay awake, gazing at my sunrise piece of art on the wall and trying to find an excuse of why I haven’t written in a while.
Wow ??
I know 2020 is overrated already, but hey,

Happy New Year my people.

Have you set your goals already? I know some of us are too focused and have already drafted five or ten of some of the things we’d like to achieve this year but I fall in the category that got carried away in the first week and will be setting goals on the 4th week which will be disappointingly a month down the drain.

I remember this conversation I had with a friend sometime back, of how life works on a clock. How we run into people who end up meaning so much to us, how we get our fragile hearts broken and think the world is ending but still open up our souls to someone else and love again. How every New Year we try to refocus, write down all those things we’d like to achieve but still keep snoozing the alarm.

and you were already making merry and perhaps babies in December, Taking stock 2017 happened on our Wild Roamers Anniversary which was in December. I shared every little and exciting bit on  Wild Roamers Just turned One, go check it out if you missed it.

2017 was a good year, I had great lessons, connected a lot and as much as the atmosphere in my homeland was tense, am glad we got over it and moved on. Politics will always be there so will the disappointments, all we got to do is dust off, tighten our laces and keep walking. I need to find more inspiration though. Hook up with more people who are passionate about travel writing and photography.I’d like this year to be friendlier, to grant better opportunities, challenges I can conquer and to be full of health, wisdom, Love, Peace of mind but above all Happiness. I want to be a better human to every person around me and to reach out more to all the people I care about. You being top of the list, I want all this for you too ??
Am curious to know what you all have been up to for the past 3 weeks? What kind of goals you have in place? Do resolutions work anymore? I honestly don’t do resolutions due to failure at it every time I hit the start button.
It’s definitely time to get back to work, to recharge and prioritize and Yes we are definitely back to writing and adventure with a bit of twist this year.
I have a few places I’d like to explore in 2020 and they’ve actually been on my bucket list for a while.

Amboseli, Samburu, Lamu/Zanzibar, Kisumu, Mara, this bird nest at Segera topping the list in 2020 and am promising myself to stay out of Uganda.
I will try to be excellent at this art, to run away whenever I can and to share all those stories with you.
I’d Love it most if you pack a bag, join the trips and explore with me.

This is going to be a great exploration Year.
