Testsie Roll: Expired Centuria 400

Hi! It’s me. Just writing this post to let you know that I’m still alive. I’ve been really busy most of the year. I know, the pandemic could’ve brought countless blog posts but can you blame me if it’s easier to watch Netflix than to write about my thoughts? So yeah, I will be continuing my Testsie Roll Series where I get to share my … Continue reading Testsie Roll: Expired Centuria 400

Rwanda: The Land of a Thousand Hills

I’ve been planning this Christmas/New Year trip since I arrived in Uganda six months ago. With my current work permit, I can just go to Kenya or Rwanda whenever I please because it will be visa free and I only need an Interstate pass. By October, I already booked my accommodation and plotted my itinerary. Come December, I encountered a couple of hiccups mostly brought … Continue reading Rwanda: The Land of a Thousand Hills

Dark Clouds Overhead

I haven’t blogged in a while now. I’ve been very busy adulting to earn some dough for my future travels. My original target is to post a couple of posts in a week but I failed. I’m such a disappointment. I can even see my mother in heaven shaking her head now. You see, there’s nothing wrong with adulting. We’ve been preparing for this since … Continue reading Dark Clouds Overhead

Pokémon GO et Dakar, Senegal Tour

Actually, this is one of the few video … Continue reading Pokémon GO et Dakar, Senegal Tour

Shining Shimmering Splendid (Hotel) | Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso

Another very late review. Hotel Splendid is the official residence of  the mining company where I am working at until the Al Qaeda attack last January 15, 2016. The main target is this 4-star hotel at the center of Ouagadougou. Maybe because this is where diplomats, businessmen and other important people stay when in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. 30 people are dead with 18 different Nationalities. … Continue reading Shining Shimmering Splendid (Hotel) | Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso

Princess Yenenga Lodge | Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso

According to my former boss, the Princess of Morocco once visited Burkina Faso and stayed in this hotel. And that’s the origin of the hotel’s name. Well, I’m not sure really with the origin of the name but some princess stayed in this hotel. And my boss stayed in her room. I don’t know how he discovered about it. Maybe there’s a shrine in the … Continue reading Princess Yenenga Lodge | Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso
