Day 4 of Zanzibar tour;

Basically our last day or more like last morning of the tour!

We hurriedly packed everything in the morning, enjoyed a good breakfast spread and visited the ocean one last time to bid adieu and obviously take as many photos of this last day somehow hoping that they would increase the time we have left in Zanzibar!

Our journey back was quite infuriating because the unexpected disembarking and boarding time and again but when we finally set foot in nairobi my heart did a little jump and I felt a little happy to be home!

I’m definitely going to miss the beach and swimming pool and holiday life but I AM glad to climb back into my niche!

Day 3 of Zanzibar tour;

Today we started the day at 6:00am for the Dolphin tour and then the stone town tour.

The dolphin tour was amazing.. I was so excited to see my favourite animal and we did.. So well and so clearly, but the sea didn’t do me so well (I felt very sick), I even jumped into the ocean to swim with them (and to relieve my sickness but all I got was some very salty water and blurry vision. Aside from the ride to and fro, and sticky salty hair, I enjoyed seeing the Dolphins very much, jumping and smiling. It was amazing but I think my nauseating self hindered my joy!

Next, the stone town was also quite nice! Buying spices and seeing the town but what got the better of me was the heat.. I could hardly concentrate.. Felt so icky!

The best part of the day was when I jumped into the pool and felt a sudden coolness spread through out my body! My element is definitely chlorinated water!

Day 2 of Zanzibar Tour!

We got up early to catch the sunrise but alas the cloud covered the horizon like a blanket only giving us a peek of its hue!

It was amazing all the same! The beach looking divine!

We managed to get some great pictures and decided to show our excitement in them.
It’s such a great feeling to get the photo you think of and that’s exactly what happened, we felt like we were flying!

The whole day was spent on the beach, in the pool and feeding our hungry stomachs!

I feel so happy!

Day 21; #60happydays

Day 1 of Zanzibar tour! Too much happening!

6:33am: Packed and ready to leave to the airport for a 9:30am flight. Managed to finish packing in the night, thankfully, so no major issues and managed to flow with the morning rituals naturally!
7:24am: Arrived at the airport terminal 2 with all the girlies! A very tiny tent like terminal.. Not my usual experience but fun all the same because I think I was on an adrenaline high. We were infact to early for check in so had some coffee to waste some time!
9:15am: Finished with our photo sessions and waiting at gate number 6. As time passes no one is calling us to board and we start to panic a little (quite a lot actually). We frantically start to run around looking for a staff member to take us to the plane! We even see our airline boarding passenger and just assume it’s another flight because frankly if it was ours why wouldn’t they be taking us but turns out it was our plane and they didn’t even know we existed!

We managed to board though! Phew! Close one!
1:03pm: Having lunch in Zanzibar from a beautifully spread buffet and chatting with my girls about the funny travelling stories we made on our way over and how we can’t wait to swim!
6:41pm: After walks on the beach, swimming in two different pools, some bonding time, tea and cake, some horrific photos of my hair and some gorgeous photos of the sea/beach we dragged ourselves up on the long path to our rooms and dressed up for dinner!

p.s I like this kind of life!
11:00pm: We stuffed ourselves up to the neck with dinner! Took so many photos because we were glad our hairs didn’t look like a broom and faces didn’t look like we were run over by a truck, and crashed into bed to catch the sunrise for some more moments to capture.
Goodnight! I’m so happy!

Day 14: #60happydays

So.. as has already been established from the earlier happy moments! I will be Zanzibar outbound with a bunch of crazy people I absolutely love to death!

Obviously preparations for those are ongoing..one which is getting rid of unsightly hair! After forty minutes of agonising pain and silent tears you get a blissful feeling of being new again!

That’s exactly what I felt today.. NEW!!! And a little more ready for the excursion!

Day 10: #60happydays

Today we got our final confirmation for our Zanzibar Holiday! My perfect sister, my best friend, her happy go lucky no nonsense sister and I. The perfect combination.. I’m most comfortable with these gals so couldn’t be more excited. I know I can be as crazy as I feel in front them and probably get a similar if not exaggerated response!

I was okay about the trip initially but this afternoon my best friend and I, went through half day excursions in Zanzibar (there are some remarkable things to do there), searched online for sand sculptures to make on the beach (not the ordinary, because we’re a crazy bunch) Then we googled pictures of the resort. That got my adrenaline going.

We went and tried on beach dresses and started imagining ourselves in the Bahamas plus taking photos.. As if we needed proof of our insanity! Basically we completely lost the plot ( I’d be surprised if they allowed us on the plane in such a state).. But we are getting there (Zanzibar not Bahamas.. Not yet atleast).. By hook or by crook.

I know if I’m with these naughty angels il have the time of my life! Looking forward to this trip more than anything!
