We are free, finally!

There are different kinds of freedom. You can have the freedom of thought, political freedom and can also be free from all the materialistic things, including money. We have left many our personal belongings on Wassini Island. Free of any money, carrying only light backpacks. Mum has left 2 pairs of shoes and is now wearing only flip-flops. I left my sandals and would have never believed that somebody could be so happy to get them! Mum left all the medicines to a doctor in this village. Before doing so, she had translated the most important information from the leaflets into English. A lady who worked at a hospital promised to take antibiotics there, so that only a well-educated doctor will later on give them to their patients. Dad also left his shoes, some clothing and all the money. We are leaving to Mombassa free.  And extremely happy! Those 3 days on Wassini Island were probably the best of our entire trip. Though it is extremely hard to make such a comparison. Each and every day was different, incomparable and unforgettable. We have great memories, interesting stories, hundreds of gigabytes of photos and priceless experiences to take back home with us. Now we are waiting to share them with others!

Kwaheri Kenya! See you soon!

We’re back on the airport in Mombassa. Max came early this morning to pick us up and ensure that everything will go well and we will not be late for the flight. He is such a great guy! I can honestly recommend anyone African Mozaic Tours. Whether you would like to travel to Kenya, Rwanda or Tanzania, Max is the person you would like to have with you. He is the ‘know how’ guy who is very flexible, has tousands of ideas and is ready to cooperate. Thanks to him, our journey to Kenya was so well organized. And we had tons of fun on the way. Plus you would not believe, how good his polish was! In fact, I am truly surprised, that so many Kenyans SPEAK SOME POLISH! The best example, would be a young boy selling wood craft in a small shop on Wassini Island. When he discovered we were from Poland, immediately spoke ‘ooo, Polska, dobra zupa z  bobra?’ with a perfect accent. : )

It is hard to leave Kenya. This beautiful country has so much to offer! And although we used every singe minute or our time here to the maximum, there is still a lot to see. And we will have to come back to Kenya one day, sooner or later!



About Zofia Drapella

I always seek adventures, but want them to be meaningful (usually related to science, marine biology, teaching). I so often find myself in the most amazing circumstances and incredible places with inspiring people. I genuinely consider myself to be the luckiest person in the world... I love nature, oceans, mountains, jungles. I try my best to capture what I have the privilege to see/experience and share it with others.
