On a Friday night laying on my bed feeling exhausted but super grateful for the weekend, it’s been a week that consumed most of my energy.
Vacation thoughts creep in and before I know it my hands are on my phone checking out the flight details, you could be wondering how I chose the destination, well for me coast is always on my mind.
I check on the Jambo jet website and oh how lucky still about 12 seats left for the 4p.m flight.
I book and search for air b.n.b available hotels.
The heavens knew how much I had been exhausted and I find a pretty nice place.
I awake to the sound of my 5am alarm which I forgot to turn off agggh.
I’m up so I say a short prayer and start scrolling. It dawns that I will just have a night and some hours at the coast, quite depressing for me.
It’s almost 8.30 am and I’m yawning, for those who got mouths that keep asking to chew something every now and then can relate.
I prepare breakfast and start packing.
Fast Forward I get to JKIA 40 minutes before check in time.
I can’t wait to fly and get to the white sands.
Check in time and here we are.
This time excited but not as excited as the first time you can read the article congratulations you’ve booked your first flight,
We lift and it’s always a good feeling up there.
The flight is about 1hour and 5 mins.
as we descend.
We land safely at the Ukunda Airport. Very glad indeed. Nothing much has changed since the last time I was here.
I get a cab and asks the driver to take me to the guest house I had booked, Its super-hot, the same time I’m feeling like I had been on a 12 hour flight.
I get to the place and check in, relax a bit and then head out to eat.
The beach is not so far way but I think I need to rest first. Back to the room and sleep catches up fast only to wake up at 5am
Again at the sound of my alarm.
The sun rays are already penetrating so I get up and head to the window just to catch a glimpse of the neighborhood.
At 9 I head out.
Done having a simple breakfast I board a tuk tuk which is a very common means of transport at the coast.
Finally at the beach. I’m thinking its Sunday the human beings are few just fishermen and a few more people.
It’s peaceful here.
Every hour at the beach is happy hour!
I spend some good time at the beach as I enjoy the breeze, watching people surf and sipping madafu.
I need to get ready for my return to Nairobi. That was fast.
For sure one (day) is never enough.
……and that is what Nixcy saw….
