A Weekend in Porto, Portugal

February 25, 2018

In January, my friend and I decided to escape the cold and travel to someplace warmer. Unfortunately, we went on a weekend where it was only 10 degrees and pretty cloudy. The sun only came out again once we were flying back. We still made the best of our weekend and you cannot predict or influence the weather anyways. When we were looking where to go we were thinking of somewhere in Spain or Portugal and since we both haven’t…

Fostering an elephant at the Elephant Orphanage

November 10, 2017

While we were in Kenya, we spent a few days in Nairobi, Kenya. Before going to Kenya, I researched a bit on what there is to do in Nairobi. One thing that came up right away was the Giraffe Center and the Giraffe Manor. While I don’t really have the money to afford a night at the Giraffe Manor (around 500€ per night), the Giraffe Center was a great alternative. I only found out about the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust…
