Ten Years in Rwanda!

 

Today I'm celebrating ten years since I moved back to Rwanda! I was originally a VSO volunteer from 2007-2009, then returned a few years later. I was only passing through, or so I thought, but a decade later and I'm still here! So, I've decided to share some of my favourite memories along the way.

Staying in a Treehouse on Lake Ruhondo

Hi guys. It's been a while - sorry!

Here's a little excursion I went on recently with my friends. We stayed in a treehouse on Lake Ruhondo and swung back past the Ellen Degeneres & Dian Fossey Fund gorilla museum in Kinigi. Enjoy!

Kwibuka 30


 

Absolutely astonishing to think that it was Kwibuka 13 when I first arrived in Rwanda, and now it is Kwibuka 30! I was 13 years old in 1994 and still remember watching the news coming in very clearly. Find out more about Kwibuka ('remembrance') here. And if you're interested, I've shared a bit about my experience volunteering at Kigali Memorial in 2008, and reflections on how Rwanda has changed over the years.

Hi guys. Sorry I haven't been updating much lately. I've pretty much exclusively switched over to YouTube and just don't have time to write blogs and make videos. Here's a little road trip I took to the north of Rwanda recently - enjoy!

Christmas in Rwanda

I did a Christmas. Went to a Christmas market in Kigali, present opening, and then over to a friend's place for eggnog and nosh. Hope everyone is having a thoroughly festive time!

Abandoned Places Trilogy

Hi guys. Still on my travels. Here's a set of three recent videos about abandoned places. I was visiting my friend Maia in Spain. In the first video, we take a look around some abandoned houses in her village. In the second, she takes me to visit a derelict tuberculosis sanatorium. In the third, things take a real turn for the spooky. There's an abandoned house in her village. Every time the owner locks it, it unlocks itself again. Walking home late one night, we noticed that the door was open and couldn't resist taking a quick peek inside!

I'll keep posting highlights from my travels here. I just wanted to talk about these ones together.
