Goodbye Nairobi.

Notice the interesting crop circles when leaving Nairobi
Up in the clouds ❤
Approaching Djibouti.


Gorges I wish I got to explore!


Hello Djibouti.
Goodbye Djibouti ❤


Do people still daydream?

I do. All the time!

Remember how in primary school teachers would tell you to ‘get your head out of the clouds’. Haha. 20+ years later, I still can’t!

Ah. How I wish I’d be somewhere else in the world right now! Exploring the landscape, meeting new people, trying new foods and let’s be real, SHOPPING!

I took these photos about two months ago during a short trip to Djibouti  and wanted to put them up but decided not to as I was planning to travel again and post them all together. The second trip didn’t happen and so I somehow forgot about the photos, up until a few minutes ago.

I didn’t stay long enough to explore Djibouti as much as I wanted to, but I have done quite a bit of research on it and I have a dream list of sites to see if I get to travel there again.

How to get there
I travelled with Kenya Airways from JKIA Nairobi at 8.30 am, transited in Addis Ababa for forty five minutes and landed in Djibouti- Ambouli International Airport around 1.00 pm.

Places to see
I had about four places I really wished I could go to:

Tadjourah – An old Arabic fishing town on the Gulf of Tadjourah that looks like a hybrid of Santorini, Greece and the African coastal towns like Zanzibar, Lamu or Mombasa.

Lake Assal – Lac Assal is the lowest point in Africa and the third lowest in the world. It is 153 metres below sea level and 20 metres deep. The lake water and the shore are saturated with salt. The lake is truly scenic from the photos I’ve seen of it.

Wild and hidden valley of Bankouale – Let me tell you, these travel bloggers really know how to make you dream! ‘Wild and hidden valley’, you got me there! It is described to be in de Goda mountains and the route to the valley is breathtaking, ‘an unpaved track passing riverbeds and canyons’. 

And of course, I’d wish to see the local museum and national parks 🙂

I hope I’ve made someone dream about going to Djibouti as well!

NB. This is not a sponsored post or anything like that, just a girl having fun with a camera 😀 🙂

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!
