White Water Rafting on the River Tana

As semi-adrenalin junkies, Mr Nomad and I and a group of other people embarked upon an adventure which entailed rafting down the river Tana in Kenya, attempting to navigate the white water rapids whilst trying not to drown or be obliterated off the craggy rocks and boulders that litter the expansive river. We boarded a... Continue Reading →

The Trip of a Lifetime: Golden Monkeys – Chapter Three

We did not wish to waste any time in Rwanda, this marvellous country, so on our penultimate day, we ventured back to the Volcanoes National Park to trek into the forest once more but this time, in the hope of seeing the Golden monkeys that inhabit the fertile foothills of Mount Sabyinyo.

It was also to be Goldie's first competition. Whilst horsing around is not normally Mr Nomad's thing, he is an amazing support to... Continue Reading →

James G Wilson We... Continue Reading →
