Friendliness all over

Kenya, Ethiopia & Somalia

 

Von Kenya über Äthiopien und dann auf dem Landweg nach Somalia! Eine Reise, die ich nie vergessen werde. Kenia - vor allem Nairobi und Diani Beach - ist sehr touristisch und erschlossen.

Man braucht einen Rucksack, um das Geld transportieren zu können. Denn dank des unglaublich krassen Wechselkurses hat man einiges zu Schleppen.

They start very punctual at 5.30 am. You even get a bottle of water and a small snack. Plus: If you ...Read More
