Whilst in Abengorou, I met Leela who invited me to stay at her place in Frankadua, Ghana. I was very intrigued because Leela lives in a small village where she runs projects to help the community. I was on the third and final day of medication for malaria in Accra and I was keen to leave having...

The day after the Nima tour, I had a short stay at the Salvation Army that turned into a much longer stay.

Before leaving the UK, I acquired all the vaccinations for my round the world journey. Some vaccinations needed top up doses, which I would do whilst travelling. I had found a doctor in Gha...

After collecting my visa for Ghana, I was ready to continue East. Several places have been recommended as good places to camp along the coast. I stayed at three beach places consecutively. One of them was outstanding and I would highly recommend.

This is day five and I'm definitely still finding me feet!

I've developed a runny nose and slightly sore throat. Nothing major, just an annoyance when my nose drips! The quality of sleep from camping probably doesn't help much either!

My aim is to give an update each week, but I've really strugg...
