Africa is the continent that made me fall head over heels in love with travelling. During my first trip to The Gambia, I realised what I was missing out on and have never looked back since. Many African countries get a bad rap from a lot of people who believe travelling on this largely undiscovered continent is dangerous. And while there are hazards for sure, the return you get in interesting culture, friendly people, incredible landscapes and delicious food is enough to warrant exploring this diverse landmass.
