One day in February, Brian and Nell were walking from their home in the village Uriri to the closest town to go shopping for groceries. On the way, they joked, "Hey, we could walk across Kenya." The seed had been planted, and from that moment the planning began.
Less than two weeks after they completed their trek across Kenya, and still sore from rucking, Brian and Nell were talking about Meze Fresh, a Mexican burrito bar in Kigali, and the best restaurant in the world. Brian sent a text message to Nell, half-joking, saying "Ya know we could just walk to Meze Fresh." Nell responded "I'm down" and The Walk Africa was born.
From a mindless suggestion and a half-joking text message, Brian and Nell will be traverse on-foot the entiretly of East Africa!
