Untold Tales of a small country called Eswatini

Eswatini or Swaziland?

My time in Swaziland (nowadays called Eswatini) was unforgettable, not only in a positive way…
Eswatini means “land of the Swazis” in the Swazi language.

Welcome to the warm heart of Africa – Malawi

Malawi, Hospitality Destination

Sapitwa Peak Malawi

I left my heart not only in Zambia but also in Malawi. Malawi is rightly nicknamed the Warm Heart of Africa.

Vivid Travels Through South Africa

South Africa is dangerous?

First stop: Johannesburg aka Joburg

When people kept telling me how dangerous South Africa is, it didn’t weigh easy on my mind. Especially during a heated discussion with the bartender at Ronnie’s Sex Shop on Route 62 who told me his opinion about South Africa: “Everyone here in South Africa knows at least one person who was killed or kidnapped by someone.” This sentence sticks in my head to this day.
