‘Africa’s not for sissies’…bring a 4×4 and a sense of adventure to Mozambique When foreigners complain about things not ‘working’ in Africa I always roll my eyes. Don’t come here if you’re not willing to experience the people, culture and community. Things work differently because it’s not your home, adapt, enjoy and take cool pictures. A few […]
It wouldn’t be a holiday if I didn’t pack too many clothes The best thing about holidaying at the beach is not having to wear pants. And by pants I mean long pants that you only own because it’s cold and going to work in your pajamas is frowned upon. Going to Mozambique meant I could.. a) […]
