(Me and my buddies on a safari)

Guess who’s back! I survived hiking Kilimanjaro, a finger infection on the Serengeti, and stomach sickness on Zanzibar (more really for like 85% of the trip). Turns out my stomach can’t digest food in Africa. I’ll admit, that put a damper on things, but I still had an incredible, invaluable time in Kenya and Tanzania.

I arrived in NYC last night and made it into Connecticut after that to see family. I downloaded most of my photos (hundreds) so it’ll take time to edit and go through all of that, but you can expect a tons of posts on Africa. First I’ll give you a “24-hours in Kenya” guide, as that was basically all the time I had in Nairobi, but it was packed with fun. Next I’ll tell you all about Kilimanjaro, the route, the meals, and our experience with Zara Tours. Then I’ll share all about the Nomad Tours safari and Zanzibar visit. I really hope these posts serve as a guide to your future Kenya/Tanzania trip. Be sure to also check out As Her World Turns, as my sister posts her experiences with Africa.

(I Bless The Rains Down In) Africa

(Me and my buddies on a safari)

The time has come! Tomorrow morning, bright and early, I begin my adventure to Africa! I’ll be away for a while, but I’ve pre-posted daily events for each day I’m gone, so be sure and check the blog for updates of fun things to do around Los Angeles.

Will all of this fit in my bags?! Today I’m finalizing the details and figuring out what I can leave behind. Eek!

Once I’m back, expect a FULL recap of my journey. I’ll be exploring Nairobi (feeding elephants and giraffes), venturing into Tanzania to climb Kilimanjaro, and then embarking on a safari into the Serengeti, before ending my journey on the white sand beaches of Zanzibar. I will be meeting up with my sister (As Her World Turns) as she is mid-trek into her very long African journey. We will be climbing with Zara Tours and then safariing with Nomad Tours.

Follow along with up-to-the-second updates on my instagram (LifeAbsorbed). Erica and I will be using the #sistersonsafari as a way to track all our posts on social media, enjoy!

Below is the theme song for my trip 🙂
