Hiking in Kenya – Daring the Rurimueria Trek, Aberdares

Most of my days do not start at 3 a.m. Any such day then has to be worth it. Let’s face it: life is constantly a fingers-crossed situation.

wachera

I can’t keep calm! That’s probably the worst tag line ever, but it’s true. I have tried finding fulfilment from settling down and focusing on one activity and place, but I failed terribly. Okay, I should probably start by telling you who I am. My name is Wachera, a daughter of the African soil. Just recently, I realized that Wachera is native for “the one who loves travelling” .
