I ended up missing the hot air balloon safari because I got really ill. I literally slept for most of the day (except when I woke up to eat), but I figured I rather sacrifice one day to recoup my energy so the rest of the trip won’t be miserable.
The next morning we headed back to Nairobi where we visited a Kazuri Bead Factory, enjoyed an included lunch and then the ultimate highlight… we went to the giraffe center where we were able to feed and interact with these beautiful creatures. You can bet your life, that when I heard that I was going to get to feed a giraffe, all feelings of sickness and miserableness went out the window and I darted to get my hands sanitized before going to the platform.
Ash and my mom where just as thrilled as I was, but my dad chose to stand afar. He naturally got pegged to take photos 🙂
This is my mom and Ash having their moment!
After all of that excitement, we headed to the airport for our quick flight to Zanzibar.
We arrived late at the My Blue Hotel in Nungwi and had masai warriors escort us to our rooms, which we fast passed out in. The next morning, Ash and I had big big big plans….. first breakfast, then finding the perfect spot on the beach and lastly, barely moving except when we needed drinks or got hungry!
Apart from our visit into Stone Town for a brief walking tour and some shopping, we spent the next few days just relaxing on the beach. Absolute bliss before heading back home to our crazy busy lives!
So herein comes my husbands classic question : “where to next love?” …. this time, all I can say is… it is going to be somewhere I never knew existed!
In the meantime, I might as well end with some of our photos from Zanzibar 🙂
