As the tittle of the site goes, my name is Wamuyu Kariuki. A mother of two teens (Girl & Boy). An entrepreneur and an adventure junkie. An African woman from Kenya touring the world on a motorcycle. I blog about being a Black African woman on a motorcycle, traveling the world with children schooling back in Kenya. I feature life lessons and travel on both this blog and our travel blog Throttle Adventures. My husband and I are on the road for the next 3 years from 2nd July, 2018.
I got to that point in life where one needs to re-evaluate their life or just do something different. I chose something different. Trained in motorcycle riding in October 2015. Been riding almost daily since then. Discovered the motorcycle travel and am hooked.
IN OTHER NEWS:
Since leaving formal employment, i have had a little more time in my hands and i do a bit of travel on my motorcycle. My recent trip is the current world tour we are on with my husband.
