Welcome to My Adventure
Hi, I’m Kirsten
This Is My Story
I'm orginally from Bedfordshire, England however I'm now living in Tanzania.
I grew up never really exploring what the world had out there, sort of the same crap different day thing (sure you get me right now).
I decided to move to Tanzania after my 3rd solo trip and 4th visit to Africa. You know that feeling when your heart is drawn somewhere. I felt like if I didn't pursue this dream I'd rather say I tried in three years time than never tried at all, kinda the motto I try to live by.
I'm a strong believer in ethics. Not harming but preserving and respecting a culture- immersing. Volunteering not in orphanges. ( You can read more on my blog) Not riding Elephants - as some specifics. Travelling is becoming more popular everyday, especially in the school leaving age. I don't think there is enough info in the world about these ethics. I fell into a bad situation a couple of years back because of this (read more here).
So I created this blog not only to raise awareness but to document my travels in Africa. East Africa is way to under-traveled due to the media. Not just a land of safari- theres so much more to it. I want explore and show you the amazing things YOU can do here in East Africa. I will show you the ethical side and the adventure side.
Travel was my therapy. Travel took me by my legs and threw me out in to the big wide world (literally), without it, I don't know where I would of been today. I want to inspire you guys to travel, even once, even solo... because at the end of the day ( cue the cheesy line) you've only got one life. Don't you want to look back and see no regrets?
