I’m Meredith Bratland, a twentysomething Canadian who recently moved to Belgium. My long-term travels started in 2009 when I went on exchange to Finland, which created a travel monster with an insatiable desire to experience more.

On the eve of my departure to Kenya in 2011, I started this blog to share my adventures and new discoveries. Since then, I’ve picked up a few new hobbies, like cooking and graphic design, in addition to my longtime loves – music, nature, photography, and writing. I hope my blog gives some helpful information for those about to embark on their own adventure.

  1. Hi Meredith! congrats for your blog, it´s nice for food enthusiastics. I’m going to Nairobi next week, is there any good places you can recomend me to try their food?

    Cheers from Mexico!

    • Hi Ramiro,

      Thanks! I’m glad you stumbled on my blog. It’s my first attempt and definitely a working progress but I am happy with it. There is quite a few great places to eat; I really enjoyed Abyssinia (Ethiopian), ArtCafe (for a good pasta or dessert), and there are some great indian food stands in Diamond Plaza food court for a lively fun atmosphere. For restaurants in general, Westlands is usually a good place to start.

      Have a great time in Nairobi!

  2. So funny that you are such an adventurous eater/foodie now. I remember when you were very young (around 5 -8 yrs) all you would eat was peanut butter sandwiches…. quite literally…just pb :>)

    • My peanut butter obsession hasn’t changed at all 🙂 My Pa, Morris, made me try new foods throughout the rest of my childhood and teenage years. I hated it then but now I’m less fussy than he is. Thank goodness he was tough about it because I can’t imagine missing out on all great food I’ve tried.

      • Hahaha! This is so funny! Everytime I see a jar of peanut butter or PB M&Ms I think of you! You even crossed my mind when I put it on my toast this morning. I hope that Belgium has a better supply that Finland did! xoxo
