How many of you have watched the movie Eat Pray Love?
The movie is about a lady; Liz Gilbert (Julia Roberts) who has everything a modern woman dreams of having – a husband, a house, a successful career – yet like so many others, she finds herself lost, confused, and searching for what she really wants in life.
Newly divorced and at a crossroads, Gilbert steps out of her comfort zone, risking everything to change her life, embarking on a journey around the world that becomes a quest for self-discovery.
In her travels, she discovers the true pleasure of nourishment by eating in Italy; the power of prayer in India, and, finally and unexpectedly, the inner peace and balance of true love in Bali.
I would have loved to travel to three different countries (but the way my bank account is set up… those are jokes 😂).
Even though my bank account refused to cooperate with me, I was determined to embark on my own eat, pray, love journey;
but instead of travelling to 3 different countries, I figured Gilgil would do the trick.
So on Friday, after a long day of work, my sister and I packed up the car and we were ready to head to Gilgil.
My parents go to Gilgil very often, so they had decided to rent one of the Chalets at River House.
The chalet they rented would end up being my home for the weekend.
I was super excited to spend the weekend eating, praying, and loving every single moment.
The chalets are these small cute cottages right after Pembroke House School (it’s a dusty road you cannot miss it).
River House has more than one chalet (so please don’t panic) and they are scattered around a nice bushy environment.
Even though the environment is bushy, It’s still neat and super beautiful.
Each house has neatly manicured lawns around them, and with all the bush, there is a lot of privacy (so if you’re a nosy body; sorry)
