Lake Malawi

One of the main attractions of Malawi is lake Malawi which is so huge you can see it from space. We spent 3 days on the lake relaxing, celebrating birthdays and having a leaving party for the couple that are leaving the trip. I've never been in a lake that big before and its bizzare...

I am soooo bored of driving.

Africa is massive... fact. The roads are shocking and the police like to stop you every 5 minutes, not because there's anything wrong, but because they're bored and like chatting. We spend 3 days in a row driving this week. Day one was fine I was terribly behind on my journal and hadn't...

The Adventure Continues

As I mentioned in a previous blog one of the great attractions of Lake Malawi is its diving, and ever since I learnt to dive there I wanted to share the experience with Alena. One refresher course for her later and that dream became reality as we embarked on our first dive together - although...

Malawi Here We Come...Again

As they say every cloud has a silver lining, and despite Matt heading back home Alena had returned back to Africa, much to my delight, and thus we set off from Dar es Salaam headed back to Malawi. Having done this journey before I thought I knew what to expect, but nothing could have prepared...

DABW and the Village

Given my minamalistic outlook on life, one where I have little concern for many of the materialistic possessions many are preoccupied with, it was a welcome relief going back to Kenyatta - the village where my late Gran's charity is based. What was even more rewarding was taking Matt there for...

A Birthday to Remember in Malawi

If I am honest I wasn't really looking forward to my birthday, worrying myself that it could be somewhat of a let down being away from home and without a familiar setting. But, as it turns out, I needn't have worried as it was one of the best birthdays I can remember. Matt had arrived two...

The Other Side of the Lake

During my time in Nkhata Bay I have met a host of people full of excitement upon completing their PADI Open Water Diving courses, and so I decided it was time for me to take the plunge and see what all the fuss was about. My only previous diving experience came in Hawaii when I was fifteen,...

The Wild Goat Chase

By now I have learnt that the best laid plans in Africa are susceptible to being disrupted at the last minute, although when I was struck down with a throat infection I could not have wished for a better change in plans. Out went diving followed by a mini cycle tour, and in its place came a...
