    Addis Ababa Part 2- Food

    If you haven’t read the first blog post about my time in Ethiopia you can check it out here. I felt like I needed to do an entire post just dedicated to all the amazing food we ate because there were so many things and it was just so delicious. I was really surprised to begin with because they had so many vegan and vegetarian dishes. Our meals included their traditional Injera bread which is naturally vegan and gluten free. The rice was also really flavourful and delicious- usually mixed with some stir fried vegetables. The buns were also absolutely amazing. They were super soft and chewy and so delicious.…

    Addis Ababa Part 1

    Since we were in Ethiopia for 2 days we decided to do a little exploring. We asked at the hotel what places we should visit and he gave us a map with the most popular tourist destinations and so we decided to check them out. First we decided to head to Entoto Hill which has the most beautiful view of Addis Ababa. It was absolutely gorgeous!!   Also around that area was a cathedral and a smaller museum that we absolutely loved! Next we hurried to the National Museum which was going to close soon. It was absolutely fascinating. Different floors had different exhibitions. The first floor had archeological artifacts,…

    A No From The Universe

    If you’re wondering why I haven’t posted in a while it’s because the universe hates me. My laptop’s screen broke again and I had to get it replaced. Luckily I’ve got it back now and it’s fine. Anyway, just wanted to give you a little update on what’s going on with me. On Thursday, we decided to go to this place called Village Market and it ended up being super fun! It has a really artsy vibe and it’s just such a fun place although it’s really big so it takes forever to get from one end to the other! We ended up going to one of my favourite bookstores…

    5 Things To Always Have In Your Carry-On

    I’ve been travelling a lot lately and I’ve noticed that there are some things that you just absolutely need to carry with you- and no I learned the hard way that these do not include all 7 Harry Potter books… 1. Hand sanitizer and tissues- Let’s be honest, travelling isn’t the most hygienic thing ever and it’s a really good idea to have some sanitizer and tissues with you because you never know when you’ll need them. Plus, it’s always a good idea to sanitize your hands before eating something even if you are using cutlery. 2. An extra pair of clothes- In case, and this is the worst case…

    The Concord Hotel

    This is another place in Nairobi that I really enjoy going to. It’s so beautiful and as soon as you walk in you’re surrounded by beautiful artwork! Then there are beautiful areas both on the first and second floor¬†where you can have food and drinks. It’s all open so you can look at the beautiful view around while enjoying your meal. There’s a lovely swimming pool area where you can relax and take a dip! It’s right next to the gym in case you feel like working out later! If you are ever in Nairobi I would definitely recommend you check out this amazing place with friendly staff members, good…

    How I Saved My Skin

    For as long as I can remember I’ve always had pretty dry skin. As a kid I had a little bit of an eczema problem but luckily (fingers crossed!) I’m okay now but I still have really sensitive and dry¬†skin. I try to avoid using a lot of chemicals on my skin and I only rarely do¬†full face makeup.¬†Even though a lot of¬†companies swear that their products work for people with sensitive skin they don’t usually work for me. However, a few months ago I subscribed to Ipsy and got my first Ipsy Bag. I’m not going to lie, it was kind of disappointing and even though the products I…

    DusitD2

    As you guys know I’ve been back in Nairobi for a while and I thought I would explore a little and go see some new places I’ve never been to before. This post is actually coming in¬†a little late because we visited the place like¬†3 weeks ago. Anyway we decided to first check out the Rouge Deck which is by far the coolest place I’ve been to recently! It’s located in DusitD2 which is actually¬†a hotel but has a lot of cool things too! They have a red pool and¬†there’s a sitting area¬†in the pool- like right in it- which is why it’s called the Rouge Deck!¬†That was a really…
