A Sandals, Sand & Lenses Affair..!

A new year for more adventure :-)

A new chance for more adventure 🙂

2013 is the year that was! Happy New Year, my good adventurous people!

First, allow me to apologize for not having posted anything within the month of December 2013. Well, as it happens to most of us I was sort of burnt-out from my day job. I however still managed to use my reserve energy to do a little travel just to get my mind off the daily routine and actually relax.

I visited the city of Mombasa for the second time this year. I however did not indulge in much activity and just opted to hang around the hotel (Kenya Bay Beach Hotel), yes I visited the establishment yet again and as always, they did not disappoint. I had in my mind to bring you my followers and readers a little of the Mombasa experience and therefore as I packed my sandals and shorts, I threw in my camera and lenses to make sure I could get you some shots. I spent most of my time on the white sandy beaches either taking a morning jog, watching the activities on the beach as I sipped my cold drinks from the creek above, or taking leisure walks in the evening. Here are some of the shots from the Mombasa trip;
