Kenya: one year on

A year ago today, I flew to Kenya to volunteer in a conservation centre on the coast. It’s hard to believe that was only a year ago, and yet it seems so recent. So much has happened since – unemployment, moving back in with the parents, a girlfriend, a job offer in North Korea, moving to London, finally getting a real job, moving to Manchester, breaking in to the Great Britain Aussie Rules team, moving to Liverpool….

Anyway, to commemorate the year, I’ve finally had a look through some of the pictures and decided to finally test the WordPress slideshow feature. 3 Months is a long time and a lot of photos can be generated, but don’t worry, I managed to filter down to a mere 135 (!). But the slideshow is randomised, so it shouldn’t be too boring. (Actually, the random bit may not work – if anyone knows how to do such a thing, please let me know!)

And if you’re midly nostalgic and want to read again about how I got woken in the night covered in army ants, the same day I got bitten by a dog, or want to relive the Fable of Honest Sammy and the diving mask, or want to hear the story of how laptop charger can be found in half a mile of pitch-black beach, you can click here to view all the Kenyan stories and whimsical musings (including the sexy moustache).

  1. wow, you really make one hideous woman.

  2. You have had a crazy year. 🙂 I cannot believe it has been only ONE! 🙂 Please never grow a mustache again.
