Hotel Barmoi | Sun, sea and a slice of paradise in Freetown

It was about 35 degrees Celsius on a Thursday afternoon when the vehicle I was travelling in pulled up to a gate in Aberdeen, West of Freetown. I chuckled and said to my drive “we don reach sef?”, which translates as “are we here already”. Either I was too busy on my laptop to notice the drove from IMAT (where I was stayed for my holiday), or the journey was much shorter than I anticipated.

My morning coffee fix

By the time the gatekeeper opened the gate to let us in, I was already out of the vehicle and trying to figure out where the reception area was. I absolutely dislike sitting in a vehicle waiting for gates to be opened, drivers to park properly or even being held up in the Freetown traffic. In fact I do not like to be chauffeured around but as someone who cannot drive, I have very little choice in the matter. As a result, I try to spend as little time as possible in any vehicle.  The minute I sense there could be a slight hold up, I am out of the vehicle walking towards my destination.

Cereal for breakfast

I was greeted with a big smile by one of the receptionists as I walked into the air-conditioned waiting area. Good afternoon sir, greeted the polite young lady behind the Continue reading Hotel Barmoi | Sun, sea and a slice of paradise in Freetown

Sun is out, shorts out | African wax print style

Shorts are essential during the hotter period of the year. I personally think every guy needs to invest in at least a couple of shorts whether it is to take with you on that beach holiday or just to wear over the weekend. I mean who wants to be stuck in a pair of thick jeans eh during the summer anyway?

Short: my mum | Trainers – Suitsupply | T Shirt – Zara | Glasses – Garett Leight | Watch – Timex

Thanks to my mum, my collection of shorts has grown by one. I am particularly happy with the new addition as it is West African wax print cotton. My mother gifted these pair of trouser to me three years ago and they were long trouser.

I absolutely love the green and brown colours of the prints but was not keen on the fact that they were long. The print Continue reading Sun is out, shorts out | African wax print style

Cuts for him – Budapest in Picture

Budapest is one of those European cities that is sure to leave a lasting impression on your mind once you visit. The sumptuous traditional cuisine known as Goulash, welcoming hot baths, historic architecture, and its unique chain bridge are a few things amongst many that will leave you wanting for more. Budapest is the capital of Hungary. It is divided into two half by the Danube river with Buda on one side and Pest on the other. This great city is said to attract over 4 million tourists a year from all over the world. With its extensive world heritage sites, you can see why so many people visit this city.

St. Stephen’s Basilica, the largest church in Budapest

I would be doing this beautiful city a disservice if I should even attempt to do a detail write up about it. So for this reason, here is Budapest in pictures.
