About this one time, when Radek made me a morning coffee…

Night owls and early birds, cat and dog lovers, coffee and tea drinkers…  the world is divided! Put me in a box with night owls and tea addicts, but I won’t complain about good coffee at 7 am, somewhere in the mountains near the equator. This is how that story begins – with my travel … Continue reading About this one time, when Radek made me a morning coffee…

Gorilla Tracking!

Been there, done that! Guys, what the experience! When they were telling us “once in a lifetime experience” we were considering… mostly our budget. Once in a lifetime, you can empty your wallet (with all attached bank accounts) and convince yourself, that it’s “a good idea”. Once in a lifetime, you can pay -for few … Continue reading Gorilla Tracking!

“I told you so!”: About this one time I didn’t want to be right (PART 1).

We entered Rwanda very pissed off at Tanzania mainland, country for tourists, not for travelers. Next time, with more money and hopefully more patience for arrogant catcalling assholes which are an inseparable part of a landscape, exactly like a wildlife to the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater (but you don’t need to pay a fee to … Continue reading “I told you so!”: About this one time I didn’t want to be right (PART 1).

I was sitting at the back of a bus driving to Mbeya, detached from others by my backpack, separated from Radek by few sits, satellite dish and other junk going somewhere to be sold or to be used. Looking through a darkened window on Tanzania for the first time, too late to see anything except … Continue reading The sweetest banana.

Nothing new is happening, we’re outside of the real world, with no outsiders except tourist, and, oh wait…. we’ve met amazing people and we’re staying in a paradise. Have I written about that? I have no idea how it’s … Continue reading Cape Maclear.

“It’ll be truly Zambian night”.

Zambian days are like distorting mirror to Zimbabwe, everything here is more focused on Mzungu’s (white people) money. People rush us- even though nobody’s in a hurry, telling us “but it’s cheap!”- not knowing that we’re counting every penny. They crowd us horribly at every junction with “taxi?”, “help with bags?” and other questions we’re … Continue reading “It’ll be truly Zambian night”.

5 best places to watch African wildlife.

We spent almost 3 months in South Africa. Time is flying and when I’m recalling the best things we saw and done it always has the logo with oribu antlers or jumping rhino in the background. When we started our journey, we didn’t know what to do and where we should start, we didn’t exactly … Continue reading 5 best places to watch African wildlife.
