Africa. A journey to the cradle of civilization changes a man. This past May thru June I journeyed across five countries in Southern Africa on a nearly 40 day adventure. I changed. And changed for the better.
People called it, “the trip of a lifetime.” I agree. The journey shined a bright light on the “dark” continent. It made me realize more about myself and my travel.
On my trip, I took Safaris to witness amazing animal survival in the bush, enjoyed tours of wineries and tasted local home-brews, stood before incredible landscapes sculpted by time, witnessed the power of forgiveness and celebrated the world cup.
An epic journey. A trip of a lifetime.
