Visit Diani Beach

Diani Beach is a major beach resort on the Indian Ocean coast of Kenya, it is located 30 kilometers south of Mombasa. It can be reached directly by plane, but from Kigali it was easy to have a flight to Mombasa , and then using the ferry and road to arrive at this small paradise .

This town was just a fishing place 40 years ago, but in the 70s when tourists wishing to come to Africa found Kenya the ideal place, as there was so much strife and problems in other African countries and it was the beginning of a touristic boom.  Hotels were built along the  coast road, which was at that time  a dusty road.  Since then Diani has continued to expend without losing its charm and simple atmosphere. You will not feel that you are in a very touristic area if you avoid the big hotels.

3 foodie spots in Nairobi

Nairobi is definitely a food spot. This city is a mix of different cultures and you can feel it in the food scene . I didn’t have the opportunity to try a lot during my 48H-stay but these 3 places really worth a visit! 

The Tin roof café

There is so much things to say about this little place in the suburb of Nairobi. The old fashioned atmosphere is lovely. Metal chairs with floral cushions, comfy couch, old pictures framed on the wall, everything is inviting.

Boho Eatery

Located in the very residential area of Karen, Boho Eatery will offer you a lovely and serene space for breakfast, brunch or lunch. The place was well recommended and was totally worth the trip. Beautiful setting in a big and luxurious garden, with a lovely patio. You totally understand the name when you arrive there : a lovely bohemian atmosphere is the best way to describe the place.

There is since one or two years now, a very nice place in Gisenyi. It is clearly a must-go when you are in town. Calafia café is a little gem . The atmosphere , the decoration, the coffee, the pastries, everything here is always perfect and delicious. The waiters are lovely. The cafe is located near Grande Barrière. It is a old house which has been « pimped » . The feeling when you arrive is that you are now in a little oasis.

One degree south in Gisenyi

If you don’t know me yet, I must confess that food is really really important for me ! One thing that I love is to discover new place with good food. Since two days, we are in Gisenyi. A beautiful city located near the Kivu Lake. And today, i spotted a new sign near the lake shore and decided to try it with the hubby. And it was WONDERFUL !
