Featured Blog: Africa, My Africa
Hi! I’m Robyn and I’m posting from Kampala, Uganda on my blog Africa, My Africa.
But I am leaving Uganda. After living here for nearly two years, I will be kissing good friends goodbye and making promises to visit soon. My journey of life needs to continue, but in Africa I must stay so I have decided that Nairobi will be my next home. Love was taking me there and even though the love between the African Adventurer and I didn’t last, my love for Kenya remains and to Nairobi I will go.
This is my story and these are my adventures. My running tales, my safari stories, community development projects, the 'w' thing is sometimes mentioned (!), accounts on life in Africa and my stories of friendship, love and heartache. I sometimes shake my head, laugh out loud or shed a tear at some of the choices that I have made, but that is all part of a colourful life.
So, here I am, in Uganda, for now. I have lived a bit of a nomadic lifestyle (having lived in Bahrain, Gibraltar, Kuwait and Scotland) and have an ‘international’ accent, but I dreamt of Africa and somehow I knew I would end up here and I love it! At the moment I am not sure if I’ll ever be able to leave!

I had never really heard of a blog until last year. I used to make scrapbooks. It started as a way for me to keep in touch with friends and family, but now it is much more than that. I remember the day I decided to make my blog ‘public’ and how nervous I felt – now I feel part of a global community.
Thanks for being part of that community and letting me share Africa, My Africa with you!
