Travel Blogs from Maidstone
Our plan was to travel to Maidstone, Kent, where Terry's ancestors had lived, and stay for four nights while we took two day trips by local buses to the nearby villages of Staplehurst and Headcorn to further explore Terry's roots. Roy and Karen were heading up to Scotland for a week, and we would be meeting back up with them in London.
So we started our 3 weeks living in Olasati - a Masai village on the edge of the Masai Mara. We were staying with a host family, and they were so hospitable and welcoming. There was Josephine (the mother), Moses (the father), 6 kids, 1 grandchild, and usually several other family members around the house. It was always a busy and vibrant place to be.

After a good night's sleep and a shower, everyone looked brand new. We had a wonderful day touring on the bus (and off the bus) with our local guide Pepe. While we couldn't agree on the pronunciation of his name, we all agree that he was amazing!

We thoroughly enjoyed our four night stay in this Bed and Breakfast. I can't say enough about the clean, modern room we had and the wonderful breakfasts we came to look forward to. My wife enjoyed relaxing in the beautiful back garden one sunny afternoon. It's a easy walking distance down the hill and across the bridge to town. A great little pub with wonderful food and good real ales is just two doors away, The White Horse. We would stay there again!
