Julius Sese is a very bubbly outgoing human who loves a good laugh and great company. He is a research associate and a musician. To him, it is so absurd that the majority of Ugandans have not gotten to experience and appreciate what a pearl Uganda indeed is!
What brings you alive when on a travel excursion?
The company of outgoing, fresh air and breeze far from the pollution of our dear city, also the quiet and sense of serenity. It basically is a wonderful experience interacting with nature, hearing birds singing, the fresh scent of flowers, sunsets, and all the beautiful scenery.
How do you plan for a travel trip?
Usually, it’s an idea that’s brought about by friends and family that I buy into so I start saving towards that specific trip but I also plan to travel at least twice a year though it wasn’t possible the previous year due to the pandemic.
Which was the last place you visited?
I last visited mountain Elgon.
What memories did you carry from that place?
I tend to love geography a lot and getting to see all these features I just read about in books and at school was just fascinating. Being at a higher altitude, walking through the forest zone, the heath zone and the moorland, seeing the variations in vegetation was just so practical and makes me appreciate nature more and sometimes I wish if studying was this practical some of our career paths would easily be cut out.
What makes you proud of being a Ugandan?
I honestly feel like we have the best weather, food and the people are so warm and welcoming. Also, our attitude towards life is such a positive one because with all that we have and are still going through we can still afford to be happy! Ugandans are such hospitable people.
How much do you know about your culture?
Well, I don’t know too much but I know a bit about my culture. However, I am getting to learn more about it the older and the more curious I get.
What are your top travel and tourism attractions in Uganda, and why?
Basically, for me, the western part of Uganda takes the crown. There’s quite a lot to see from game parks, crater lakes, hot springs, salt mining, ghost towns, Kirembe mines, stalactite and stalagmite features (Amabeere Ga Nyinamwiru), to mention but a few
Which place have you been to and been wowed, and why?
That must be Lake Bunyonyi in Kabale in. The scenery is just perfect!
What makes or breaks your experience while on a travel trip?
My first priority is where I get to sleep/rest after a long day. The rest I have no problem with. Also, the company I travel with, the biggest travel turns off is being with people who have emotional imbalances.
Which places are on your bucket list, and why?
A hike on the Rwenzori to the summit because that would be another challenge for me.
Who are your top travel bloggers, and why?
Funny enough you are one of them. I have been following you for quite some time and I honestly admire your life. I look up all the places you go to and make it a point to visit them.
I also love a gentleman called Walter Kahuma. He has awesome travel content and he is also humorous.
What have you done to promote travel and tourism?
I make sure to post all these nice places I have been to on my social media so as to entice people to go visit.
What would you like to see done better in the local tourism sector?
They should make these tourism sites easily accessible and affordable to the locals/citizens because it’s so absurd majority of us have not gotten to experience and appreciate what a pearl Uganda indeed is!
