We all need to travel more. I know it’s not as easy as packing your bags and just getting in a car or on a plane but it is as easy as making the decision and the rest will fall into place.
Being from South Africa and relatively privileged enough to choose the quiet protected life of suburbia, I think a lot of us forget or maybe choose to forget that we live in Africa and there is a whole beautiful continent out there with a lot of positivity and things that could be learned and brought back here.

I recently returned from a trip to Dakar – what an amazing place. Dakar, like lots of African countries has problems including poverty and all that goes with it. But I left with admiration for the people who under obvious hardships are so positive and welcoming and have kept those simple values that a lot of people here in South Africa have forgotten.
So next time you are thinking about traveling just make the decision and you might learn something.
