Around Africa in 15 Photos

I truly love participating in the weekly photo sharing event FriFotos. It’s a great way for me to think creatively and to present new posts that I don’t even expect. This week is a particularly great theme, AFRICA. It’s hard not to fall in love with this truly massive content, but it’s a lot more than safari and the bush. From Cairo to Cape Town, there are hundreds (probably thousands) of distinct cultures and of course even more wondrous sights to behold. While I’ve only scratched the surface of exploring this stunning part of the world, these photos encapsulate my own experience exploring Africa.

    Gorgeous and inspiring photos. I love the way you displayed the cultural hub of Marrackech and the unique natural elements and wildlife found at Victoria Falls and in Namibia. This is a great photo-summary of the treasures that Africa has to offer. Thanks for the post! – Emme @ Green Global Travel

    Love that zebra shot! It’s strange, but I’m definitely starting to get the Africa itch. It’s swiftly moving up to the top of my “places I want to go in 2016” list!
