~ MAIYAN VILLAS, NANYUKI ~ Maiyan is honestly very very beautiful, and so well done. The villas are so modern. They're great living spaces for groups of friends or families. Each villa has en-suite rooms, living room and open kitchen and jacuzzi and small pool at the rooftop. The rooftop pool water is very cold so you may likely not use it much, but they've opened a new, much pool that's heated and is Amazing! Then of course there's an outdoor exercise area (like the one I LOVED in Dakar), next to the basketball and tennis court. You could also play football, ride bikes or horses or canoes. And there's a play area for kids. They'll are views for days, everywhere in the property. They've been a couple of affordable deals by travel agents around this time. Take advantage of this season and go to Maiyan with friends or family or colleagues. Great for weekend getaways, birthdays, weddings etc. Reach out to them on @maiyannanyuki Peep the Maiyan folder on the highlights on my bio for more videos and photos. #notanad #travel #travel2019 #maiyanvillas #maiyan #nanyuki #tembeakenya #africantravel #travelblogger #travelkenya #travelafrica #travelafrican #getaway

And there the LIFE left me... Today there was a knock on our front door. Immediately I felt resentment building up inside of me. At first I ignored it, but after the third knock I reluctantly got up, and as I opened the door, there he stood...'my begger'. Someone who just keeps coming, who keeps asking for food (not money, because I do not give money), just food. As I flung the door open, he immediately asked for some food, and I answered with resentment, irritation, and anger: "Oh it's you again!" Well I did go and get some food...as I mostly do, but what I realized as I gave the food to him was NOT SOMETHING I feel proud about! I could feel how THE LIFE started to drain out of me...and I immediately realized what was happening. I did not act out of LOVE...the UNCONDITIONAL, ALL CONSUMING LOVE that I am as a Spiritual being! I acted out of my EGO, my self, the devil in me...and because I was acting against my Spirit, the Spirit of LOVE (inside of me), the LIFE started to "pull away"! GONE were my peace and joy! Oh it felt horrible, and I was so sad...so ashamed, but more sad, because I "quenched" the Spirit!! I "hurt" MY SPIRIT! And then we wonder why we are so full of sicknesses, and fear, and all those things that are NOT LOVE, all those things that steal our ABUNDANT LIFE! Living the UBUNDANT LIFE has absolutely nothing to do with religion! BUT it has everything to do with LIVING FROM WITHIN! We are SPIRIT, created in the image and likeness of our Spiritual Father whom is Unconstitutional LOVE! We judge and act out of our judgement, and that steals our joy and peace, power and love! We are not placed here in this earthly realm to judge (eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil), but to eat of the TREE OF LIFE...who is always unconditional, all consuming love! Oh how we long for the peace and joy in the midst of any situation, that our Father promises to us. But...instead we keep on judging (death realm)...and therefore we keep on suffering. Just saying... preaching to myself here. #guardyourheart #donotquenchthespirit #eternallove #treeoflife #bemindfull #ashamed #love #unconditionallove #travelafrican #travelartist #lifeblogger #lifecouch

It is time to get up, get dressed, and start enjoying LIFE! So get up out of your misery and despair, that was created due to all those false pre conceived lies you believe, telling you how bad your present life is...get dressed in the joy, peace, love, and power that's already inside of you...by starting to flow/float in THE RIVER OF LIFE that is flowing through you! (Photos taken near Hogsback a couple of years ago. The one with the children was a 'drive by shooting'! ) #getup #getdressed #enjoywhatyouhave #lifeblogger #lifecouch #travelafrican #travelartist #lookforjoy #createmagicalmoments #bemindful

Masai Mara, Kenya. Swipe left for more Ellies. Last photo is pretty much a "Naenda hivi, nacome". Or "How we're leaving 2018" Or.

Masai Mara, Kenya. One of my goals when photographing animals is to try and capture their faces. Raw expressions. Often unbothered, sometimes bored and other times carefree. And - I've found buffalo expressions quite meme worthy. These photos remind me of memes about African aunties pointing at people na mapua at functions 😂 Some animals like Buffaloes are easier to photograph. They'll occasionally stop and look up when grazing. Zebras are easier - they'll often stop to pose for photos. Giraffes are often too tall for my lenses. Lions are often unbothered, and may be seen as boastful IMO. #throwback #masaimara #kenya #africa #travel #travel2018 #travelblogger #blogger #tembeakenya #africantravel #travelafrica #travelafrican #wildlife #bufallo #big5 #meme

One of the many blessing of having a Chinese daughter...THE WONDERFUL CHINESE FOOD we get to eat, AND learn to make! This time it was my favourite...Baozi! A kind of steamed roll filled with mince meat. I can still remember the first time I ate it...it was somewhere in the foothills of Tibet, early in the morning, at a tiny streetvendor. #baozi #chinesefood #chinese #travelafrican #travelblogger #travelartist #streetfood #love #specialtimes #grandkidsarethebest #loveroflife #createmagiceveryday #awesome #lovefood

Once a day do something that brings you joy! We owe it to ourselves to find something to bring back our JOY! Most of us (adults) hav lost our joy...we have allowed the troubles of this world to steel our joy. We need to get our joy back...let's start by finding just one thing a day, that will give us JOY!

"One who speaks from his experience, speaks with authority." Never think your life's experiences are not important! What you go through on your life's yourney is vitally important to those who cross your path! What you have learned on your yourney can help so many people...never think your life is not important! That you are not important! You are important to so many people, even when they do not realise it! Never shy away from SHARING ! Your power lies in what you have gone through during your very unique life's experiences.

Savouring the moment...live in the NOW! "Beware of destination addiction. A preoccupation with the idea that happiness can be found in the next place, the next job, with the next partner. Until you give up the idea that happiness is somewhere else, you will never be happy." So so true! You need to come to the point where you find your peace and joy IN THE PRESENT MOMENT! A friend wrote to me yesterday, saying she realized how much I will miss the grandchildren when we go home. You know what??? I cannot go 'there' now...now I am savouring every moment with them. When I move on, I will be savouring every moment wherever I go, and whatever I do. With children living far away, I I had to LEARN to be content in every situation...that my happiness does not depend on being with my children, grandchildren, or husband...or being in a specific place. My happiness depends solely on ME being content in THE PRESENT MOMENT. Me being thankful for whatever I have NOW! Not always easy, but oh...the only way to really enjoy LIFE, and experience heaven/abundant life NOW! #travelblogger #travelafrican #artbloggers #createmagiceveryday #createbeauty #livenow #alive #makepeace #chiangmaitrip #travelgranny #findbeautyineverything #now #abundance #beconfident #becontent #bethankful

You are responsible for your own happiness...so get out of your comfort zone! Not easy, but oh...so worth it! Today, I once again took an Uber, to go and explore the Old City of Chiang Mai! It was only Me, myself and I... And you know what? I am proud of myself! I did it again, venture out all on my own... and went exploring! That does not come naturally to me! I was always to scared to do anything on my own, and I always blamed Hubby for not wanting to take me places. But then I realised...he was not the one who wanted to go! He is not an explorer, I am! I realised that I was expecting things from him that was unrealistic, and that it was up to me to make my dreams come true! So yeah...I started to do just that, and now we are both happy. Whenever he feels like coming with, he does, otherwise I go on my own, AND...I am just loving it! So yeah, I have grown, and I am so proud of myself... and so thankful! We tend to blame others for not making us happy, but 'that job is mine and mine alone!' I am the only person that can make me happy! And YOU are the only person who can make YOU happy! #makingyourselfhappy #lifequotes #lifecouch #lifeblogger #mindfulliving #getout #startlivingyourlife #startliving #go #justbreathe #createbeauty #createmagiceveryday #bemindfulness #chiangmaitrip #travelblogger #travelafrican #travelartist #photographers #picoftheday #takingpictures #capture #capturemoments

I always confess that she turned into one of my biggest blessings! She turned my whole small little life upside down, made me experience the wonderful world that exists outside the small secluded life that I grew up in! She made me see and experience a whole new world, and I just love it! Twice we went to visit them in China, and it is now the second time that we are visiting them in Thailand. What a blessing to experience and learn about new cultures! To see the world through her eyes! My whole world has exploded since she came into my life! And now we have 2 'so called mixed race' grandchildren, and they are just amazing...they are ours, part of us! I always say having them, makes me now half Chinese also! Oh how we fear and resent people just because they seam different from us. You know what?!? As soon as you get to know someone personally you find out they are deep down just like you! It's just an amazing experience! Through our children, and our travels, we have met so many people from other cultures, and you know what? After a few minutes all those 'outside' differences just falls away! All of a sudden they become 'one of us'...just like us! We are truly all just ONE huge big family!

Make peace with your yourney... that's NEVER EVER going to go as planned! #arttravel #artist #travelafrican #travelblogger #makepeace #enjoytheride #findbeautyineverything #keepinnerpeace #bemindfull #loveiseverywhere #travelblogger #lifecouch So hubby decided to accompany me on my walk yesterday. Because he was with me, I felt safe enough to take a road that I would never have taken on my own. It turned out to be a very poor area, next to the river. I loved every moment...until the road ended and we got to the highway! I wanted to walk back the same way we came, but Hubby decided we need to walk along the highway until we find another road that will take us back to our starting point. At the end his way turned out to be an hour's walk along a very busy highway! I lost it! Hated every moment and were moaning and groaning all the way! Gone was my joy and peace! I was just not willing to make peace with that situation, and blamed him for my discomfort! (Take note: if it was not for him, I would never have walked that 'wonderful' road along the river in the first place!) Well, as I was walking I realisez something...this was just like real life! When things go your way, you are happy, but as soon as things turn out differently, you blame everyone else for your discomfort! Your spouse, your kids, your boss, the government...and on and on it goes! You are the only one who can make yourself happy! By not allowing people and situations to steal your inner peace! Letgo of your own preconceived ideas of how things should turn out. The road that you are taking in THIS LIFE is not always smooth, not always enjoyable! Your only JOB is to find joy and peace in the midst! It is your responsibility to NOT ALLOW people or situations to steal your inner peace! It's very easy to blame, and very hard to keep you peace and joy... and to make peace with your yourney. PS. Sorry Babes, I was an ass...

I went for my first Thai massage on this trip. #lifequotes #lifeblogger #loveroflife #artblogger #findjoy #loveyourself #beatpeacewithyourself #mindfullness #travelafrican #travelthailand #massagetherapy #chiangmaithailand Oh boy, at one stage, as she was busy massaging my head, I though: "I want to stay here!" Well the 'here' was not about the nice massage parlour in the mountains, but it was all about what I felt at that very moment. Peace...just overwhelming peace and a stillness I cannot explain. Plus I felt so much love and appreciation for the woman that was massaging me! I felt so LOVED! Well that was until she started to work on my shoulders! Oh boy, that was painful! "This is just like ordinary LIFE", I realised! The one moment you are experiencing situations that gives you so must peace and joy, just to have them replaced by other situations that brings you so much pain! That is just ordinary life! But you know what? Even during those painfulI massage patches I still felt at ease, even joyful...and that is the answer to experiencing heaven/abundant life in this eartly realm. Finding peace and joy WITHIN yourself, in your Spirit! Realizing that outward experiences cannot bring you deep inner peace and joy. So when you are going through a painful patch, go and do whatever you have to do to FIND YOUR PEACE AND JOY...to find that abundant river of life that is flowing deep inside your spirit!

Your LIFE happens NOW...not in the past, and not in the future! NOW! After traveling for a day and a half, we arrived safely in Bangkok Thailand, are now only 709 km from the kids...having to wait 3 hours before boarding our last flight! Will land in our kids city at 23 h. Sitting...waiting...totally wasted, just devoured a whole packet of Sour Glow Worms. WOW traveling to them makes you realise just how far away from 'home' they really live! (Our home is in South Africa, and our kids lives in Chiang Mai Thailand) It actually is kind of crazy, but once again that is life! Life happens, how we react to all those 'happenings', is our only job. Finding peace and joy in the midst of any situation...not always easy, but definitely worthwhile! To live in the NOW, to find your peace and joy in the MOMENT, is how you experience abundant life...Heaven on Earth. To make peace with your yourney is so important! It's actually the difference between life or death! You see you can either experiencing heaven or hell NOW. #travelafrican #travelblogger #artblogg #artisttraveller #createyourmood #creatingmagic #findyourpassion #findpeaceinyouryourney #thailand 🇹🇭

LIFE HAPPENS... So we missed our first, of 4, connection flights to Thailand. We are still at the Port Elizabeth airport, trying to figure this out alongside all the other travelers who also missed their connection flights. #lifeinsporation #travelafrican #travelblogger #artisttraveller #lifehappens #findpeaceinyouryourney #createyourmood #createmagiceveryday Why did it happen??? Did we do anything wrong? Are the devil behind this? Hahhhahhaa...that was what I believed a couple of years back when I was still bound by religion. As soon as things did not turn out as I've planned (believed), I believed it was either due to me not having enough faith, or me not praying enought, or the devil trying to steal my life! Now I've learned that this is just ordinary LIFE HAPPENING! Things happen, and things turn out differently than you hoped for, and planned for. So the only THING you can do when the powpow hits the fan, is to surrender to what is happening! To make peace with your yourney...To make sure you find your peace and joy in the midst of this situation! Yesterday I got the new definition of the word 'Responsibility'...and it goes something like this: The only responsability I have, is the ability to respond to a situation. Will I respond in fear, anger, resentment...or will I respond in peace and joy in the midst of how this will now play out. I am totally out of control in anycase. Things will turn out as they will turn out, whether i agree with it, or not. How I will react to them...that is the only POWER I have. This is just LIFE!

With the mission statement of this channel being to exhibit the beauty of Nubian travelers. This amazing 📸 by @spiritedpursuit seemed more than appropriate. The subject being Ole Shikuku located in the beautiful #watamu in #kenya.

K I G A L I G E N O C I D E M E M O R I A L. . Over the weekend I had the privilege to visit the Kigali Genocide Memorial. My first interaction with the genocide was through the movie #hotelrwanda which I believe is most of our experience. However, I could have never been prepared for the experience that is walking through the memories, and hearing from survivors, and just realizing the extent of the gross pain that the people of Rwanda have experienced. . People lost their entire families remaining as the sole survivors, children and babies were brutally murdered, or forced to watch their parents mutilated. It’s not a pretty history but so important to remember to ensure we never allow it to happen again. . The beauty in this story is that Rwanda is developing at a rapid rate just just 24 years later, with unity and the sense of community being key pillars that are advancing that growth. I am honoured and forever changed by this experience and grateful to the Rwandese for sharing their pain, forgiveness and growth with me. . . . #rwanda #kigali #kigaligenocidememorial #genocidememorial #visitrwanda #rwandalicious #genocide

WOW so true! What must we DO to be free from problems?!? #lifecouch #loveroflife #arttraveler #createmagiceveryday #changyourmind #bemindfull #artist #photographer #travelafrican "When things go wrong in our life and we encounter difficult situations, we tend to regard the situation itself as our problem, but in reality whatever problems we experience come from the side of the mind. If we were to respond to difficult situations with a positive or peaceful mind they would not be problems for us; indeed, we may even come to regard them as challenges or opportunities for growth and development. Problems arise only if we respond to difficulties with a negative state of mind. Therefore, if we want to be free from problems, we must transform our mind." Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

Find your own fix! I had my morning fix! A quick photoshoot at a little Church next to the Shopping centre were the bus stopped for 45 minutes. Our last stop in Norway before heading into Sweden. #loveyou #norway #expattexplore #travelafrican #lifeinsporation #lovecouch #artblogger #travelblogger #createyourlife #createmagiceveryday #lifehappensnow #expatexploretravel Oh boy, first it was all the different whites and greys of the Church and the tree stumps, and then it was the orange, reds and yellows of a house close by. Just so beautiful walking and running taking pictures all over the place, in the litte time we had. Even the colours of all the graves were just beautiful, and I felt such joy as I was walking between them, just once again realising that there is no such thing as death! That all those people are still alive and part of all of us! Jip, their bodies are gone, but oh....their spirits are alive and well and part of THE ONE SPIRIT OF LOVE, that we all are!

Travelling is teaching me so much about ordinary LIFE! About living in the NOW. #lifeblogger #artisttraveller #lifeisayourney #takingthenextstep #gowiththeflow #expattexplore #scandanaviaexplorer #relaxandbreath #bestillandknow #travelafrican #travelisart #justbe #daytoremember 😍 #lundsweden Just arrived in Copenhagen Denmark, traveling from Lund Sweden. Trying to get to you Hotel, without knowing much about a country, can be tough! But we eventually made it by having to take two trains, one bus, and asking many strangers for help(most could not speak English!). We have planned this trip to a T, because that was what we had to do in order to get our visas....and as we were boarding that first flight, this 4 weeks trip around Europe looked really very scary! How are we going to get to all those places? Will we be able to cope? But you know what? It is actually quite easy because we only do what we have to do NOW....today...this very minute! We do not worry about tomorrow. We focus only on the next bus we have to take, or the next meal we have to buy...and that makes this trip really so easy! Life is exactly the same! Just focus on your next step, do what you can do right now...and your LIFE will unfold to become a wonderful yourney.

Do not look back. #artblogger #travelblogger #travelafrican #lifeisbeautiful #lifeinsporation #lifeisayourney #mindfulness #createyourlife #createyourownmagic #epinalfrance #lifeinyou #youarethelightoftheworld #followthelight As we were walking through a beautiful park towards the station, I looked back...and then I started to think: "With what I know now, we should have done some things differently" But you know what??? The decisions we made were made on the light (the knowledge and wisdom) we had when we had to make them! Remember the light inside of you, that gives you whatever you need (wisdom and knowledge) for your next step only? You know the saying "hindsight is 20/20 vision (perfect vision)"? We put ourselves under so much condemnation when we believe the lie that we have made wrong choices. It is not true! We will always try to make the right choice whenever we have to make a choice. No one in his right mind will deliberately makes a wrong descision! So we have to stop putting ourselves under condemnation when we look back on descisions we have made in the past. When we look back, we only look back in order to see how we have grown! Life is GROWTH, it is forever changing... therefore you are growing, and changing and expanding! (Not your waistline, I hope, hhahha).
