So because of my brother, we are stuck in a whole different continent, and by we I mean me myself and I. I can’t go home because he is graduating in a few weeks. Don’t get me wrong, I’m completely proud of him..I just imagined myself curled up in my bed in Kenya at this time of the year, that’s all :D.
Anyway I decided I wanted a bit of excitement in my life so I went to see him. Let me tell you guys BOYS ARE JUST ANNOYING. I was excited for our day out and even better, the sun was shining bright so I got all dressed up. In all honesty I was looking cute ! But what does he decide to do? Throw on a shirt and shorts minutes before I arrived at his door!
His lack of effort in appearance was definitely compensated for in the activities he had planned for the day. Extra points to him for being my ‘professional’ photographer for the period.
STOP 1 : MAYFIELD ALPACA FARM, SHEFFIELD.
From the moment I heard we were headed here I couldn’t help the flashbacks to all the Tintin comics I read. Obviously I was scared of getting spat on by the alpacas like the Captain, but overall I was excited.
There wasn’t much in the farm. Just a lot of land for the alpacas, goats, horses, pigs, chicken and a skunk. In addition there was an enclosed section for small animals like squirrels, spiders, chipmunks among others.
The view was extremely beautiful; it was generally breathtaking.
STOP 2 : CROOKES VALLEY PARK
Now this is something I can say Kenya definitely needs to invest in; more recreational places like parks that one can just go sit in with their friends or family for lunch or a bonding session or just to read a book.
This park is not only extremely beautiful in its simplicity, but also peaceful with plenty of play area for children and adults alike.
It also has running tracks for those interested in keeping fit 🙂
The day ended with dinner and ice cream but I was so famished I did not bother taking pictures of the place !
All in all it was a day well spent with my designated third parent 😀
“We need the tonic of wildness…At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.” ― Henry David Thoreau
