SOJOURNERS’ STORIES

A COUPLE CELEBRATES THEIR DECADE BIRTHDAYS …

Decides to travel to Africa for the first time. What a better way to enjoy the occasion?!

Rebecca and Ben

We chose to travel to Kenya based on the ease of airline routing and ability to use miles for our flights. Flying from NYC to Nairobi was very easy. Despite our flight restrictions, we don’t think our trip could have turned out any better !

Kenya offered spectacular wildlife viewing and photography, which was our top priority. The people we met along the way were warm and the food was excellent! My husband Ben is a photographer and made a video of his best shots from the trip. I (Rebecca) took only binoculars but recorded my experience at Amboseli National Park in poem that I wrote.

We hope you enjoy having a glimpse into our travels!

See below for their shared experiences. For a bit of teaser … here are a few shots from Ben’s YouTube video:

African Heart 
(by Rebecca Frymer)

Jacaranda flowers, Acacia silhouettes
Kenya gold, Africa soul
Endless sky and land
Playful wind dances across the salty plains
Spectators gather to witness the circle of life
Dust tangled hair, faded traveled clothes
In the shadow of Kilimanjaro
Gentle majestic giants roam
Rulers of the land
Kings and Queens of time
Spectacular Kilimanjaro

Ben and Rebecca traveled in November 2019
