Zanzibar, Tanzania


Hi everyone! 

I'm writing this post from the gorgeous Double Tree by Hilton resort in Zanzibar, Tanzania. I'm travelling with my sister on this trip and we're having an incredible time. The beaches here have us mesmorised. The water is warm, calm and crystal clear. 

We've been relaxing by the pool, reading books, enjoying the spa and great traditional food.  The local women in the village next door to our hotel run a turtle conservation site ("the aquarium") and we went to visit. My sister described it aptly as being one of the most magical moments of her life. The turtles are so well looked after, from newly hatched ones to 100 year old ones. The conservation site is to ensure that the number of these turtles doesn't diminish. They are already planning their next big release of turtles in January which is quite exciting.  They were quite curious to when they saw we had food for them and swam around while their life cycle was explained to us. 

Apart from that, we've been loving the local people who are so friendly and the children who love to come speak to you. The speak quickly in Swahili but don't seem particularly phased by the language barrier. Sand castles and smiles are universal after all. 

Today I'm sharing snaps I've taken on my iPhone but stay tuned, I should have some camera snaps to share too.

Thank you so much for reading!
