Finally, finally, finally, after covering a distance of 23,426km, traversing 6 countries, I’m back home

Finally, finally, finally. After covering a distance of 23,426km, traversing 6 countries, eating unusual foods, sleeping in strange beds, riding in metals called ‘buses’, meeting warm locals, visiting spectacular sites, and basking in unimaginable beauty, I have made it back safely to our great nation Ghana. In the last 5 weeks, I have grown in […]

My return trip from Djibouti has certainly earned the spot as ‘my most difficult road journey to date’

I thought going to Djibouti by road was difficult, then I tried coming back. It was hell. Djibouti is one of the least visited countries in the world, receiving about 53,000 visitors yearly (compare this with the 2nd most visited country in Africa; South Africa which receives over 10 million visitors). Due to its closed […]

Getting to Djibouti by road was no mean feat, I wanted to give up many times but I am glad I persevered

I bring you greetings from the country of Djibouti. Bordering Ethiopia, Eritrea, and Somalia, Djibouti occupies a small land area and has a population of about 850,000 citizens. A former French colony, Djibouti is hot, humid, and dry. Lake Assal, the world’s largest salt reserve is found here. Just a few days ago, a port […]

In Lalibela, I visited the famous rock hewn churches

In Lalibela, I visited the famous rock hewn churches. These churches built in the 12th Century are an architectural masterpiece. Now a UNESCO designated site, the churches are a must-see in Ethiopia. King George’s church though smaller than some of the others, is the most spectacular. Standing next to the church, it was hard to believe […]

After Victoria Falls dazzled me, I headed to Lusaka the Zambian capital

I can’t believe its been a week since my last post. Time has flown faster then I can catch it. Well, well, after Victoria Falls dazzled me, I headed to Lusaka the Zambian capital. Lusaka was my resting place, my haven. I was spoilt, pampered, and lavished with affection by my dear friends Lucy and […]

Good, Good morning from the well planned city of Maputo!

Good, Good morning from the well planned city of Maputo, the Mozambican capital. Some parts of Maputo is really beautiful. With Mediterranean style architecture, a waterfront, street lined with trees, and relaxed nature, Maputo has not only lived up to my expectation but it has exceeded it. At the weekend, I was given a real […]

I headed to the Kingdom of Swaziland my 71st country

From Maputo, I headed to the Kingdom of Swaziland my 71st country. It’s capital Mbabane (Pronounced Mbabanee), under 200km from Maputo, is a 3 hour ride. Swaziland is mountainous, green, beautiful, and expensive. Not for the budget traveller, it is a playground for golf lovers. Though small in population, land area, and GDP, Swaziland’s GDP […]
