To experience Africa show casing all her glory & beauty from a different perspective has been life changing for me.
From various rolling landscapes to plantations of tropical fruit trees which filled the air with sweet reminders stretching for km's, to witnessing wildlife in a natural environment from hippo, crocodile, zedra, elephant, hyena, garaff to mention a few.
To cycling through all the various village's tribes, cultures, traditional foods to local kids running out of their huts screaming "Hello" and jumping up and down throwing their arm's in the air giggling with faces of joy because you waved back. "Heart Felt"
To challenges from malaria, downpours to 45 degree's to unforgiving mud, soft sand to every type of road surface imaginable. To crossing rivers, lakes using ferries, local and traditional boats, to cycling through forest, on the beach for a week, alongside the cliffs following cattle paths to a detour ending up with no water, a puncture pushing North alongside Lake Turkana for 3 days.
To Meeting a english speaking Nomad fishermen who showed me how to dig for water then invited me to join for dinner - fish, chi tea under a full moon and shared stories.
But most of all my wanting to make a difference by shifting mindsets, motivates me with great pleasure.
