I talked about my personal experience when I returned in a previous post. From the article:
“And although travel may give us the opportunity to try out new personalities, in the end it teaches us more about who we really are, if only through the process of elimination.” Very, very true.
Even in 2009 the continent of Africa is one that is so misunderstood. Lately we mostly hear about Somali pirates. But on a continent of about 50 countries, there is something to catch your interest. From the Maasai of East Africa to the Pyramids of Egypt, the history of West Africa to South Africa’s tumultuous past and present. Not to mention the wildlife that abounds on the continent, there is something for everyone.
Oh and by the way, no matter what anyone tells you, Egypt is in Africa. It is not part of Europe. Just thought I make sure to say that again.
Very cool. A hostel created out of a 747! Must see to believe.
For iPhone users, an app to find hostels right on your phone. Free to download from the iTunes App Store or from the website. If any of you use it, let us know how it goes.
Everyone has their reasons to travel somewhere. Conversely everyone has a reason NOT to go somewhere. A bad previous experience or hearing about the experience of others, disagreeing with the current government or the nation’s laws or political views.
