destination :: kenya! lamu island

4 Nov

in just a few days i am headed to the wonderful village of shela on lamu island, kenya!

for the next few months i will have the privilege of calling this beautiful island my home…i am anxious to escape the chaos of modernity and relish in the simplicity of village life. along with photographing an amazing wedding on the island at the end of the month, im looking forward to spending the next few weeks focusing on writing (my first love) and photography (my passion) in this incredible environment. i spent a few weeks in shela earlier this year, and am so excited to return! this is the *first* time i have ever returned to a place i have traveled previously! im hoping to become proficient in both swahili and sailing, and spend lots of time learning and exploring in general. my plan is to update this blog often with news, stories, and photos — so stay tuned!

      We totally love it here. Macedonia is fascinating as are most of the neighboring countries. We love our house and have a guest room. Plenty to see. Lots of great food. Local wines are pretty good.

      Fall and Spring are probably the best times to visit, weather wise and fewer tourists, but any time is good. Let us know when we should reserve the guest room for you. You can also visit Jeni Washeleski in Pristina – she’s just 90 minutes away.

      Our car just arrived, so we are ready to travel!
