PARAGLIDING IN KERIO VALLEY, ITEN KENYA

Hey yo Hey yo lovelies

Happy New Month… it’s March and the year is rushing through soon it will be December and we have 2018 in our horizon šŸ™‚

So pssssst listen, last weekend I got to experience something so surreal. A friend of mine invited us to go Paragliding here in Kenya in a town called Iten close to Eldoret “The Home of the Champions”

For those that don’t know Paragliding : check out this link https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paragliding

I was amazed when I found out you could do it here in Kenya. We drove 6 hours towards the Rift Valley and our stop was Kerio View Hotel, a few miles away from the hotel was the take off/ drop off location. 

Two Frenchmen Flo and Robinson, are the reason you can paraglide in Kerio Valley. They travel here between January and March when the winds are the best to give a few flights to those interested. 

Check out our YouTube vlog Paragliding in the Home of Champions  

Here are a few snaps of our adventure

The Take off and Drop off location 



We arrived when the winds were too strong for us to have our flights so we were advised to do it very early the next morning šŸ™‚

Thanks to Shauna for these shots of me. goldmine šŸ˜‰

Our flights were about 40 minutes and we travelled about 12kms of the Kerio Valley and it was ultimately the most surreal experience of my life next to giving birth to Beck . I would definitely recommend to you lovelies.

The next day after Paragliding we took a short trip to Lake Bogoria and got to see the flamingos but the drive was too long to the hot springs so we headed back to Nairobi.


Thank you to Nelson Assanga for creating a memory in this amazing place on my 25th bday for me to come experience it on my 29th year šŸ™‚

Thanks to Kip for showing up part of his hometown. Shauna for taking amazing pictures and videos to commemorate the trip and Hugo for being the warrior and navigator for our whole trip šŸ™‚

I’m looking forward to so many adventures this year so if any of ya’ll readers got ideas, leave them on the comment section šŸ™‚

Have a happy March lovelies
