Welcome / Karibuni

We are a couple (Graham & Anita) with two teenage children.

We currently live in Milton Keynes but we’re heading out to Mwanza in the summer – where Graham is taking up the post of Head of ICT at Isamilo International School in September.

This blog will chart our move from MK to Mwanza and the life there after. It’s going to be scary and exciting, stressful and exhilarating. We’re leaving behind a house we have lived in for 16 of our 19 years married and a town where between the 4 of us we have lived for 83 years!

We have a lot to do to extract ourselves from the UK and not a lot of time to do it. This page will update once there but for now read about our move.

  1. Good luck with the move, and thank you for signing up to follow my blog! Be well! ^..^

  2. Good luck. Spent a good chunk of my childhood in Mwanza in the 50′s and early 60′s, and went to the local primary school there before boarding at Mbeya two days away by steam train and bus). I remember we used to play on the rocks near the Yacht Club. Great to see you continuing the British connection, with your children too.

  3. Hello Graham and Anita, great to know that you are following our blog, which is a little behind but gradually catching up.
    Good luck to you both in your new job in Mwanza. We remember camping at the yacht club there during our African trip before going on to Uganda.

  6. How exciting. I have visited but never lived in Mwanza. Since the mid eighties I have spent many wonderful years (on and off) in Tanzania teaching, training and mentoring teachers. I’m sure you’ll have a fantastic time!

  9. How exciting. Safari njema! My OH spent 2 yrs in Tabora as a VSO. Then we were 8 years in Kenya. I write school fiction for African publishing houses btw. Just thought I’d slip that in. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  10. Hello! Thanks for popping by my blog. Funny – the past couple days I’ve been thinking about preparing my life for an eventual major change of totally changing career paths…possibly international teaching. And then I see that you checked out one of my posts… Huh. I’m definitely looking forward to hearing about your new adventures in Tanzania!
