What for, you ask? Well, I've mentioned a few times that I am a volunteer for Global Voices, and they have a biennial summit. The last one, I just missed out on as I was a new writer, but this time around, I managed to clock enough contribution to be sponsored a trip to Nairobi, Kenya!
It's not all fun and games, I do have preparation for the summit to do, and will have to attend the programs during the summit, meaning that I won't have a lot of time for sightseeing. But I am arriving a few days earlier to give myself some time to at least get some travelling done. I mean, it's not everyday that you get a sponsored trip!
I will be leaving tomorrow night, and returning 10 days later. Then it's off to another conference in Sydney, so I will be very busy over the next 3 weeks. I expect to still be able to blog / update my social media while in Kenya as I don't think the summit will be too exhausting, but I definitely won't be having Internet access while in Sydney, so this blog will be quite deserted until mid-July.
In the meantime, here's a standup comedy I think everyone should watch.
