Addis Ababa Part 2- Food

If you haven’t read the first blog post about my time in Ethiopia you can check it out here.

I felt like I needed to do an entire post just dedicated to all the amazing food we ate because there were so many things and it was just so delicious. I was really surprised to begin with because they had so many vegan and vegetarian dishes.

Our meals included their traditional Injera bread which is naturally vegan and gluten free. The rice was also really flavourful and delicious- usually mixed with some stir fried vegetables.

The buns were also absolutely amazing. They were super soft and chewy and so delicious. The darker bun was a traditional Ethiopian one that was salted at the bottom and they told us they usually make it in a pan rather then bake it. It was sort of crispy on the outside and very soft on the inside- the taste kind of reminded me of a pretzel.

Addis Ababa Part 1- Travels And Sightseeing

Since we were in Ethiopia for 2 days we decided to do a little exploring. We asked at the hotel what places we should visit and he gave us a map with the most popular tourist destinations and so we decided to check them out.

First we decided to head to Entoto Hill which has the most beautiful view of Addis Ababa. It was absolutely gorgeous!!

 

Also around that area was a cathedral and a smaller museum that we absolutely loved!

Next we hurried to the National Museum which was going to close soon. It was absolutely fascinating. Different floors had different exhibitions. The first floor had archeological artifacts, the second floor had paintings and art and the ground floor had paleontological replicas and bones.

Then we did a little shopping and got a few beautiful souvenirs to remember this wonderful trip by. We even explored the hotel which was filled with amazing art and culture.

Also I really have to say that one of the reasons we had such a great time was because the people there were so great! They were super friendly and helpful and inviting. Plus, they were so proud of the culture they had managed to preserve for all these years and they were just happy to share it with us as we were to learn about it!

My Crazy Flight

So I’m back in Canada- we arrived yesterday and oh boy do I have a crazy story for you!

It was super rainy in Nairobi so our flight got delayed and consequently we missed our flight to Toronto and I was stuck in Ethiopia for 2 days which was a true blessing in disguise because I had the most amazing time ever! The food was amazing and the country is so beautiful. There is so much greenery everywhere I was blown away. I’m super busy at the moment getting everything ready for school and stuff but I will absolutely be posting lots of pictures of it as soon as I get some time as well as some more details of all the places we visited. Just wanted to post a little update before that.

A No From The Universe

If you’re wondering why I haven’t posted in a while it’s because the universe hates me. My laptop’s screen broke again and I had to get it replaced. Luckily I’ve got it back now and it’s fine.

Anyway, just wanted to give you a little update on what’s going on with me. On Thursday, we decided to go to this place called Village Market and it ended up being super fun! It has a really artsy vibe and it’s just such a fun place although it’s really big so it takes forever to get from one end to the other!

We ended up going to one of my favourite bookstores in Kenya called Between The Lines which is just so pretty!

The Concord Hotel

This is another place in Nairobi that I really enjoy going to. It’s so beautiful and as soon as you walk in you’re surrounded by beautiful artwork!

Then there are beautiful areas both on the first and second floor where you can have food and drinks. It’s all open so you can look at the beautiful view around while enjoying your meal.

There’s a lovely swimming pool area where you can relax and take a dip! It’s right next to the gym in case you feel like working out later!

DusitD2

As you guys know I’ve been back in Nairobi for a while and I thought I would explore a little and go see some new places I’ve never been to before. This post is actually coming in a little late because we visited the place like 3 weeks ago.

Anyway we decided to first check out the Rouge Deck which is by far the coolest place I’ve been to recently! It’s located in DusitD2 which is actually a hotel but has a lot of cool things too! They have a red pool and there’s a sitting area in the pool- like right in it- which is why it’s called the Rouge Deck! That was a really bad description to be honest so just check out the pictures below to get a better idea of what it looks like!

Once we were done with our drinks we decided to check out the rest of DusitD2. First we checked out the super awesome looking restaurants which also have vegan and vegetarian options!

Then we decided to go see their studio which was the prettiest place ever with some amazing artwork!

Later we decided to explore a little more, however, some of the floors are restricted but we were lucky enough to go see them anyway!

Overall, I had an amazing time! They have some amazing restaurants if you’re interested in going to eat, they have some super cute little stores if you’re in the mood to buy something and if you just want to hang out and have some drinks the Rouge Lounge is absolutely the perfect place for it!

How To Deal With Anxiety When Moving

Whether it’s moving out of your parents house or moving to a different continent moving is always super terrifying. Some months ago I made the huge decision of moving from Kenya to Canada for university and as someone with anxiety it was pretty stressful and anxiety inducing. Here are some tips that helped me deal with my anxiety during the move.

Stay focused- Sometimes anxiety can really get the best of you and a lot of times I ended up thinking “is this really what I want?”, “is this worth it?”, but you have to remember your goal. You have to remember everything you are going to be able to gain if you go through with it. Really think about it and don’t let anxiety cloud your thinking. If you want, you can write down all the reasons you want to/should move so that whenever you’re feeling anxious you can read it and remember why you’re doing this and why it’s worth it!

Yoga and meditation- I know I talk about this one a lot but the truth is yoga and meditation can really be life savers for a lot of people with anxiety. It will help you stay calm both in your everyday life and during stressful times such as moving. It helps focus your mind and teaches you to control your thoughts.

Take some time off- Take some time to relax and watch a movie or something. Your life doesn’t need to revolve around the move although it’s understandable that a major part of it will. Sometimes you just need to shut off your brain and do nothing which is where reality TV comes in… seriously it’s a great distraction!

Hobbies- Remember to have some hobbies like reading, writing, watch TV in your sweat pants… It helps to do a bunch of other stuff too because when your mind is idle it tends to over-think things and that’s often when the anxiety takes over.

Talk to a professional- If you’re feeling really anxious and nothing seems to be working please do talk to a professional about your situation. Just talking about what you’re going through really helps sometimes and there is nothing wrong with seeking help.
