Postcards

I know I haven’t written in a while, same story over and over again hehe.
But the key is consistency ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€

I’ve been so busy with school and some work, and last week I got to travel to Isiolo.
I had a terrible cold and had taken some medicine that made me drowsy almost 3/4 of the trip, and luckily I managed to stay awake on the best parts of the journey, the drive to Nanyuki.

It was really beautiful, and the roads were clear too. We were flanked by wheat farms on both sides, and a clear view of Mt. Kenya for almost an hour driving.
Nanyuki is 196 kilometres from Nairobi, and Google says it takes 2 hours and 43 minutes (lol) but we had quite a number of stops, first at Embu for tea then at Sagana for lunch.
Thereafter, it took about an hour to get to Nanyuki and two hours, in total from Sagana, to get to Isiolo.

What I came to realise all through the trip is that I should take more time to travel and even if I can’t afford to go to Italy (yet) I CAN afford to drive around, see and experience all the beauty Kenya has to offer.
One thing’s for sure, I will climb up Mt. Kenya, and I’ve given myself until the end of next year (December 2016) to do this.
Another thing that must happen is me getting a camera! My head works in pictures sometimes and I’d be experiencing something and thinking ‘Wow! This would make a beautiful picture! I could try this shot, play with the lighting’ etc and I’d just say to myself to just snap a decent photo on my phone and invest in a proper camera.
GOALS!

*Note to self : Mt. Kenya and invest in a good camera.

Here are a few of the pictures I took during the journey on my phone and edited on VSCO ๐Ÿ™‚
I promise myself to go back and take these pictures afresh when I get my camera ๐Ÿ™‚
Enjoy!

A nice pair of booties and faux leather bag can upgrade your look drastically, especially if you’re a Hijabi and all you have to play with your black abaya are your accessories!

Oh yes, someone needs to make me their photographer! Weetabix vibes.

Hello, I'm Fatma Sultan. Architecture is my chosen career path. My love and appreciation for art is larger than I can put in a few words but it all comes down to the freedom to express oneself in so many different ways: painting, sketching, drawing, poetry, writing, photography, furniture design, cooking, pottery and even personal style. I hope to inspire my readers in any way that I can, and at least put a smile on somebody's face. Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Not yet love, but I’m still doing my research and so far a Cannon T3i has been a recommendation as a good entry level camera. I may stumble upon something else soon though ๐Ÿ™‚
