Finally, here is the post that I promised some time back on this previous post about my trip to Leipzig over Easter. The weather was just perfect for such a trip & Leipzig did not disappoint at all. For me, Leipzig felt 'truly German', very correct, focused, old-fashioned, strong & full of history. It is a city full of very beautiful historical buildings & sites which need a longer stay in order for one to enjoy all of them. I guess this means that I will probably have to visit it...

I would be lying if I wrote that I travelled to the 'The Hague' just to attend the 'African Women in Europe' annual conference. It was actually a pre-birthday gift to myself & a chance to visit somewhere new, do something different or even meet new people. And I got to do all 3, 'The Hague' is beautiful & is definitely worth another visit.

Am taking a well deserved trip to Leipzig for a few days & I thought that I should share with you a few photos & experiences that I make here. I prefer this instead of waiting until I get back home where I will be overwhelmed again with work & life that I won't even be able to compile a good blogpost, if any at all. This is my first time visiting Leipzig & am very excited to experience the city & all it's beauty. I hope that you will enjoy the journey with me. I wiish you...

This is a story about love, an 'interracial love' to be precise, the fear of losing a new-found love, the fear for one's own life, a belief in the super-natural world, death threats, going against the 'oracle' to pursue a love that you believe in, a hope for a shared future, the start of a family in light of the unborn child....all this encompassed in a musical atmosphere. This enchanting story written by 'Micha Hamel', performed by some of the most beautiful voices that I have ever heard &...

If you are into movies like I am then am sure that you have watched a few where the character finds himself entering some sort of flying object & being transferred into a parallel world that he never knew existed. And that's exactly how I felt when I attended the recently ended 'Basel World 2018', an Exhibition for the Watches & Jewelry industry that takes place every year in Spring. Manufacturers of Watches, Jewelry & precious stones take this opportunity to introduce their new...

Fun facts about the Parliament: The open & inviting architecture has vast glazed facades which enable visitors to look over the shoulders of Members of Parliament at work in their offices.

For someone who spent most of her childhood running around barefoot, my experience at the 'Barfüßpark Egestorf' was quite painful but lots of fun too. It's an outdoor park measuring 14 hectares which is situated inside the 'Lünebuger Heide' nature reserve. A 2.7kg path made up different natural substances such as glasses, acorns, salt, twings, mud makes for a very interesting barefoot walk through the park. The park also has a small cafeteria & lots of nice spots where one can picnick...

Kariokor Market is an open-air market that should be on everyone's list of 'Places to visit' while in Nairobi.

There are tailors working on the different types of bags, women using beads to create beautiful jewellery, weaving baskets & even carving the different sculptures.
