I’m heading to the airport to start an exciting adventure but this is a very special trip. One that has been years in the making. Today, I fly to Kenya and I’m going to be exploring the country my mum grew up in. I have wanted to visit for years and I’m over the moon that I’m finally making the trip this year. Having grown up hearing stories about the two cities my mum grew up in – Nairobi and Mombasa – I can’t wait to visit and see them for myself.
It’s my first trip to Africa proper, after spending the last few years focused on traveling around South East Asia. I’m so excited to experience a different culture and different people as well as different cuisines.
I’ll be writing about my journey on my return to London but in the meantime, keep up to date by following me on Instagram @reena.rai.
