    9 Reasons Why You Shouldn't Visit Africa

    9 Reasons Why You Shouldn't Visit Africa

    Africa is one of the most misunderstood and underrated regions in the world. The continent that is often mistaken for a country. The number one place people think of when the word "poverty" is mentioned. The region of the world where people know more about its animals than the locals there. One might wonder "why on earth should I visit a country in Africa?" "I’ve watched the Lion King, I know what Africa is all about." "I don’t want to see poor people… I don’t think Africa is worth my money."

    "Tudo Bem?" (All Is Well?)

    Tudo bem? or Tudo bom? is a simple, yet intriguing greeting that has been one of the most culturally interesting aspects of living in Brazil. You might be thinking, what is so interesting about these two words, but the greeting itself, when you translate it has much more of a significance than what you would think. I find it fascinating for a number of reasons, which I will divulge during this article—and it is important to keep in mind that languages, including English have different ways in which people can address each other from the very neutral to the very positive.

    Crow Call

    Crow Call

    In the city, you are never in one place at a time; multiple worlds occupy the territory you think of as your own, which you define largely by what you choose not to notice. The corner you stand on waiting for the light to change is entirely different to you, to the potbellied Black businessman at your side, to the cyclist balancing on his pedals at the curb, to the weary bleached blonde woman slumped in the driver's seat, to the homeless man crouching by his ragged blankets in the shade. I once walked along the concrete banks of the Los Angeles River near Long Beach with a friend of mine, also a photographer, and at one point I stood immediately behind her—she was very short—and shot a photo over her head, of distant freeway ramps looping over the water. Our very similar cameras clicked almost simultaneously. The two pictures were so different when we compared them later (this was in the days of film) that they could have been taken a thousand miles apart. Yet we were close friends who discussed our craft endlessly and had similar artistic philosophies. Even in our own little closed-in world, we were worlds apart.

Even with that in mind, tourism is a major source of income for the island. Although it is less reliant on it than many other Caribbean islands, making this a destination that welcomed some 1.7 million guests to their sandy beaches in 2015; it is still an island that has more to offer than the standard tourism hallmarks.

From the hotel to restaurants to the local events, I want to make sure what I'm paying for is worth it. I tend to always use review sites such as Trip Advisor, Yelp, Google & Facebook. I quickly check these sites for reviews. This tends to to help when making decisions for vacation and even work travel.
