CHARMING STAYCATION IN WINDY RIDGE,KAREN- NAIROBI

It seems so often these days, the stress of every day life, the overwhelming (at times) nature of the information pouring at us through channels like Facebook and Instagram, and the beautiful images we see on other networks like Pinterest have us longing to just get away from it all. But sometimes, a vacation just isn’t in the cards. And even if it is, why limit yourself to a vacation where you have to get away? There is another option right in your backyard, and we definitely think it’s worth exploring!

OL-TALET; A BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY STYLE COTTAGE

If you are in love with expanse landscapes that are very predominant in Africa and even more so in Kenya then this post is for you. Over the weekend we happened to join a group of friends for an out of town stay at Ol-Talet.

Ol-Talet Cottage is a quaint little self-catered house with a pretty appropriate name – Ol Talet, meaning ‘the place with a view from above’ in Masaai. Another gem of a place tucked away in the picturesque landscapes of The Great Rift Valley, at the edge of Olepolos hill.
