Happy 2017! Not to sound cliché but it’s a new year with new experiences and new travels. Lets make it epic, shall we?
Last Year, Airbnb launched ‘Trips’ which is aimed to change the way we travel. I am excited to be a part of the inaugural team that helps change the Nairobi narrative and even how we see travel.
What are ‘Airbnb Experiences’?
Have you ever travelled and didn’t know what to do, where to go or who to talk to? So you end up googling ‘Top 10 Things to Do in X’ in order to find something worth your time in that said destination. You end up in a place packed with tourists and you don’t even end up enjoying your experience.
Or maybe you would like to learn something new in a destination but you don’t know where to go or who to contact. You want to try surfing in Cape Town or a spiritual experience in Cuba? Or learn how to Burlesque dance in France?
Airbnb has organized and arranged trips with specialists in each area you may be interested in, from the Arts to Social Impact Experiences to Historical Experiences to Fashion Experiences, there is something for everyone.
You get to immerse yourself in the world of your host and the city you are in.
I got to try one of these experiences with Joan Wamuyu , Freewheeling Naivasha. I got to interact with biker community and the expat community here in Nairobi and learn so much about Motorcycles and riding in general. Definitely took me out of my comfort zone.
Great way to travel.
My experience: Lens On Kenya
With my experience, you will get to see some of the great landscapes in Nairobi; Karura Forest and Ngong Wind Farm and get to capture its majesty alongside some of my friends who happen to be artists and photographers. I’m excited to show travellers a different side of Nairobi other than the basic Safari and Giraffes.
You get to even try some Kenyan food and snacks, enjoy Kenyan food and even Kenyan music, all with photography at its centre.

Have a lovely week
If you end up trying any of these experiences, please let me know what it was like. I’m excited to read about it.
