Hello beautiful people,
Am so excited for today’s post which is a Travel Vlog: Weekend Getaway. I recently went on a weekend getaway about two weeks ago. It was honestly everything I ever wished in a mini vacation. From the road trip, to the destination and everything in between. This being the first road trip I have done on my on, without family to accompany me. I knew I was in for a lot of fun with the people I was going with. To begin with, this was the most random trip ever. I Just got a call for a weekend get away or a mini vacation if you may. I beamed at the thought of a Travel Vlog: Weekend Getaway edition.
Bearing in mind I had promised to have my YouTube up and running 2 weeks ago. And I couldn’t get it up and running in time. Apparently my camera underwent some delivery delay.
So I was to pick my Brand new Camera. Canon 700D with a kit lens of 18-200mm and a 50mm prime lens the evening after I received the call. Being the lazy individual that I am I asked my mum to get it for me, and guess what she did not. Mind you I was already on Pinterest and YouTube researching the many ways to channel my inner creativity to have the perfect Travel Vlog: Weekend Getaway post. Before you tell me am getting ahead of myself and I need to calm because I could pick it the next day. I was supposed to be on the road by 5AM and the delivery place wouldn’t be open then.
I was really pissed over this and I sensed that this getaway was going to be a disaster with my soiled up mood. Lucky for me I had a good Samaritan who ended up picking it up.

You would think I was Travel Vlog: Weekend Getaway ready, but alas, something else had to happen. This shipping company didn’t include my Memory card and it was way past mid night when I got the camera. Which means the shop are closed. I was holding in my hand something that has been on my wish list for the longest time but I couldn’t still use it. The frustration, I resorted to a plan B, iPhone 7. I tried to convince myself that it will come as close and all will be well. Long story short there were no gadget shops when we got there and I couldn’t buy on the way because most shops were closed. As luck would have it, the creative gods were smiling upon me, one of the guys ended up having a Canon 5D MARK iii and an extra 125GB memory card. Talk about Luck.

We Left Arusha around 5.30 AM headed for Pangani-Tanga which was a 7 hours drive give or take. Having had a stressful night and lack of sleep I basically slept the entire journey. Think of me as the 3rd designated driver Ha. I did a short road documentary on the way for the Travel Vlog: Weekend Getaway and went back to sleep. We arrived at our final destination, Peponi resorts Pangani around 1PM. The place was beautiful in a word, I did try to capture for the most part but the serenity is nothing in comparison.
Nesting in a secret garden, Peponi is a camp and lodge on Tanzania’s serene and untouched coastline. In what is an undiscovered area. Peponi represents a sanctuary of peace as well as a connection to the fascinating area and good-hearted locals. Located on the road between Tanga and Pangani, Peponi serves as an ideal point from which to explore Tanzania and East Africa. The nearby village Kigombe is the oldest fishing village in Tanzania, offering insight into the history and nature of the area.
If you are a lover of sea foods, then you know the coastal place is the way to go. I was overwhelmed with the many ideas on creating the Travel Vlog: Weekend Getaway. Not to mention the accommodation, they offered huge tents overlooking the Ocean. For me this was a dream, having the opportunity to cancel variety of stuffs of my bucket list; A romantic weekend getaway, a fun Road trip, Camping, Night in the ocean, Skinny dipping, romantic walks in the beach, Swimming in the ocean, Kayaking and one more is left Snorkeling (soon please). If you are ever in Tanzania, Pangani is definitely a place to visit, apart from its to die scenery it’s quite, calm and isolated to have some alone time.

Unfortunately, we chose the worst time to go on vacation. For some funny reasons it rained heavily when we were there, and it was crazy sunny when we were checking out. However, that didn’t stop me from having a time of my life. It was going to take more than a few heavy rain showers. I was determined to have a great time and boy did I. Have a look on My Travel Vlog, live on my YouTube channel (Finally Yaay!). Speaking of YouTube, My hard drive malfunctioned and I lost a ton of my documents but I met a guardian angel and restored some of it and I was able to ensemble a decent Travel Vlog: Weekend Getaway.
I honestly thought it was going to be an easy capture and publish task, little did I know what I got myself into. There is a lot of work that goes in play for the creators. You have to go through it to understand. However, am doing what I love and its worth it in the end. Tell me your idea of a fun weekend getaway in the comment section below.
