From Kenya with Funk

By St├ęphane Bazan (Facebook) - My story with Kenya started almost 20 years ago when my Mom decided to go on a plane from Lyon to Nairobi and never came back. She settled near the port city of Mombasa, on the Indian Ocean, in a small Digo tribe village called Magutu. She built a house and started to invite friends and family to spend a few days in what I consider to be one of the most beautiful places on Earth. The country, as big as France, has a great variety of landscapes, from the tropical coast to the rugged lands of Mount Kenya, from the eastern lakes to the rift valley. Kenya is also known for the most beautiful game reserves of the World, made popular by many Hollywood movies including “Out of Africa” or “The Constant Gardener”.

Welcome to Kenya

Visit Porto in 48 hours

Destination: Porto
Travel Companion: Solo
Duration: 2 days
Budget: 300$ (excl. Airfare)

If you're visiting Portugal soon and you're wondering what cities to visit and how to split your time, this is the read for you. Of course, people have different interests and are in different state of minds when they visit a place thus perceptions are subjective. My personal preference is Porto; it's small and cozy, and a lot can be done in 48 hours.  One thing for sure though, I wish I had even more time in Portugal to explore more of the country, it certainly is a beautiful one. You can check the Lisbon post here.
