When Jesse my boyfriend suggested to visit Kampala, I was both excited and scared at the same time. Excited because I’d get to be with him and spend time together. Scared because that means spending time at his best friends house and didn’t know what to expect as Kampala was a fairly new place I’d ever been to.
To my glee Frank and Sarah were nothing but the best hosts and humans. They made our stay in Kampala quite a memorable experience. I can’t pull a serious face recalling ‘fororo’ and the catchy ‘pangea’ quote from Lil Dicky’s Pillow Talking song 😂.
For long distance relationships it’s really about maximizing the most time together but this time round it meant sharing that time with people who made Kampala home to my beau.
Believe it or not I struggled with the idea but would you know, I ended up falling in love with every little bit, nuance, and the very essence of our stay in Kampala. The double date included and all.
I see why people love Kampala now. The warmth of its people, the tasty meals and definitely a place you are free to express and be yourself without a fear of being judged or ridiculed.
What I’m trying to say as someone who spent 4 of the most incredible days of my holiday getting to know Kampala and falling in love with it is that travel can open up scopes you never imagined and enrich relationships if we let it.
From the traversing through the nightly terrain of no-sleep Kampala and meeting easy going people, eating Wandegeya delicacies and various Ugandan eats from places I can’t properly recall their names to experiencing their travel system that is very different from that of Kigali the Kampala I experienced was a really delightful treat. The cherry on the cake was spending it with the incredibly amazing Jesse and my new found friends of his ♡

Until next time; travel, laugh, love and be willing to learn.✌
