The Good Life With IQ

If you want tips, tricks and insights on travelling, being vegetarian, sustainability and India, and from someone who’s been there and done that, then The Good Life With IQ is a good place to be! The inspiration for this blog was a trip to the Lakshadweep islands in early 2017. We had a really tough time trying to figure out how to plan our trip, and the fact that there wasn’t really much useful information on the net was really frustrating. When we got back, I decided to write a post on how we planned our Lakshadweep trip, so that other travellers could be spared our frustration. But once I got started, it was difficult to stop. And that's how The Good Life With IQ got where it is today.

Riding over river rapids. Trekking through Martian landscapes. Swimming over surreal coral reefs. And, of course, admiring the breathtaking wildlife. This short video has best of our memories of Africa.

In June 2018, we did what we had always dreamed of doing; we took our very first trip to Africa! For three weeks, we took in the sights of Kenya and Uganda. And when it was time to go, we realized that we had just scratched the surface!

During our time in Uganda, we explored charming Kampala and watched a brilliant cultural performance. We spent time with our aunt and uncle as they ran their boutique and cafe, Kardamom & Koffee. And we went river rafting on the source of the river Nile at Jinja.

In Kenya, we did some hard driving and were rewarded with encounters with elephants, lions, rhinoceroses and giraffes. And after a week of driving, we took some time off on the Kenyan coast at Malindi. A trek through the nearby Hell’s Kitchen depression at Marafa gave our holiday a surreal twist. And swimming with the fish over the reefs of the Malindi Marine National Park was the perfect antidote to all the driving.

Take a look at the best of our many memories of Africa!
