There are certain journey's one must take in life to discover that they are only a very small part of this universe. I have always wished and imagined that I could travel to the United States again. I planned that I would see various states such as New York or California (again). But these thoughts were always pushed to the back of my mind because I never imagined they would happen.
Through a lot of prayer and a really deep desire, my wishes finally came true. My gracious aunt and cousin hosted me, and I was able to travel to the US for my cousin's wedding. I find it hard to describe to people amazing the trip was, because I don't have words to describe it. Instead, here are images I took from my trip around New York. (More to follow from Maryland, Washington DC).

You may be in the city, but as soon as you step into the Heron Portico hotel it feels just like the coast. The lobby speaks volumes as to the entire theme of the hotel; with its Swahili and Arabic influences.
The hotel, formerly known as the Heron Court, is located on Milimani road only a few minutes away from the CBD. If you ever need to know how to revamp your image, the hotel has a few lessons for you. The perception of it before was not the best, but I won’t go into that since our generation probably doesn’t know about that, and will only ever know the new hotel.
Apart from the stunning image of the hotel, the staff is extremely friendly. From the smiles of the concierge to the head Chef Ali, the smiles never miss a beat. Speaking of Chef Ali, the hotel food is absolutely delish! I’m a sucker for sweet things, and indulging in the desserts was pleasing for my mind, body and soul.
Take a look at some of the sights from the hotel. I recommend heading over to the hotel anytime you need a break from the city buzz, besides you won’t be going far away from town.
Thanks for stopping by Fab One's!
