I visited a very special place here in Nairobi. I always heard stories about my great-uncle Tone and his wife Agnes, who came to Kenya to build up a SOS children’s village. So on Monday, I suddenly realized that now is the chance to take a look at it. Therefore I texted their son Mathew, […]
The elephant orphanage in Nairobi
Being tired of all the adventures, I wanted to take a day off to rest and relax. But not with my dear Barbara, who is much more resilient than me 🙂 She planned to go to the elephant orphanage in Nairobi. There you can watch young elephants being fed and taking their mud baths. At […]
Enjoying beautiful Mombasa
We decided that we earned some vacation time in Kenya, so we went to Mombasa. The plan was to take the nightbus, sleep while we’re on the road and enjoy the day well rested. In reality, we hardly got any sleep in the ten hours drive from Nairobi and the following two hours drive in […]
Visiting Mums Love Children’s Home
Friday, September 07. Barbara is very interested in kids and social engagement, so Paul arranged a visit at a children’s home for us.

After a two-hour drive, on which I prepared my second blog post, we visited Mukaa Children’s home. Unfortunately the children […]
From now on we are free!
Ah, I mean three, sorry about thatÂ ? On Wednesday our driver Elias and I picked up Barbara from the airport. Her story is amazing. She always wanted to go to Africa. Paul told her that I’m here in September and he would also invite her. So we met a few days before I left Vienna […]
My first days in Kenya
Saturday, September 2nd, 2017. It’s the first day that I’m in Africa. Maybe you’d think that I’m here for holidays? You’d be wrong: We helped a friend of Paul with moving in into her new apartment. But of course, I used the chance and followed with my camera. We bought a bed, mattress and a […]
So, where are you going to?
I was waiting in the queue for the security checks at the airport, as suddenly a girl confronted me with this question. “Where are you going to?”. Usually I am the one who approaches strangersÂ and being on the other side, I was pretty stunned in the beginning. Of course the most accurate answer would be […]
