How About Having Breakfast with a Giraffe?

Giraffe Manor Hotel is an unusual hotel in Nairobi, Kenya, surrounded by 47 hectares of woods, in which Giraffes live in their natural habitat.

Not a bad idea actually, if only I could transport myself there! ;)

Hope you have an adventurous weekend! xx

Everyone is creative in their own way. Creativity is a way of living; it helps you see things differently and has a way of changing things up. Simply put, it is because creativity makes life unbelievably interesting and fulfilling.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
