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 the Tuktuk, which was with 2100 Kenyan Shilling (about â‚¬17) much cheaper than an Uber (5300 Ksh) or cab. It just took about double of the time, but I wanted to try going by Tuktuk anyways.
Arrived at the hotel, we felt like in paradise. Such a huge contrast to the day before. I think I never had a hotel directly connected to the beach. And I cannot remember the last time being on a sand beach. It felt amazing. We spent the day eating, drinking and walking on the beach.
In the evening we met our Italian friends Anna, Eleonore and Simone. I showed them some tricks with their camera and I think we got some awesome results! What do you think?
Mombasa City Tour
The next day we used the time to take a tour through the city. Luckily, we found the best tour guide ever, Suleiman Swaleh. He told us some interesting stuff about how multicultural the town is and some history about how the Portuguese, Indians and even Austrians contributed to the development of Mombasa.
