Country Nr 18 – Niger

Country 18/196: Niger Destination: Niamey Dates: From 28th to 29th of September Our stay in Niamey was short but sweet. The capital of Niger is powered by the Niger river, which is also an endless source of beauty. There are people farming by the river, fishing, selling pumpkins, washing clothes, bathing, or simply having fun. :) The rest of the city is remarkable as well. It offers amazing works of art, countless colorful markets, great food, and lots of wonderful sights. ♥ Thanks a million, Niger!!! It was our greatest pleasure! ;) Found lots of LOVE in Niger. ;) ♥ *Are you...

Country Nr 17 – Burkina Faso

Country 17/196: Burkina Faso Destination: Ouagadougou Dates: From 26th to 28th of September We visited some of the most popular attractions in Ouagadougou, including the awesome Parc Bangr-Weoogo, which is no ordinary city park. It's at least 50 times the size of an average park, besides, it's home to many wild animals, including hyenas!! :) The sights were romantic, but knowing that we might bump into a hyena made the stroll sort of adventurous as well. ;) Burkina Faso, thank you for the very interesting experience! Wishing you all the best! :) Found lots of LOVE in Burkina Faso. ;) ♥...

Country Nr 16 – Benin

Country 16/196: Benin Destination: Cotonou Dates: From 24th to 26th of September We were staying at the lovely Villa les Orchidées hotel, which is located at the beautiful Obama beach (btw, Eldorado beach is totally overrated, the Obama beach is at least a hundred times nicer). :) It gave us the chance to watch the sunset at the beach, which was totally romantic. But romance is not the only thing you can find in Cotonou, the city also offers a fair share of excitement. For starters, there are taxi drivers on motorbikes, which can take two persons at a time,...

Country Nr 15 – Togo

Country 15/196: Togo Destination: Lomé Dates: From 22nd to 24th of September We took a bus from Accra to Lomé and then from Lomé to Cotonou, so we got to see the whole coast of Togo, including the lovely lake Togo. We loved the country's laid-back vibe, the never-ending sandy beach, the welcoming people, and the colorful markets. Btw, we didn't realize that we felt homesick until we found a French supermarché where they sell delicious Mediterranean food! Baguettes, cheese, olives, and French pastries. We've come to realize that even though we love African food, by heart, we are true...

Country Nr 14 – Ghana

Country 14/196: Ghana Destination: Accra Dates: From 20th to 22nd of September Ghana is mainly known for its warm climate, sandy beaches, and beautiful nature. We were staying in Accra, which is a modern city full of beautiful sights. We were lucky enough to visit the city during Ghana's Founder's day, a major national holiday, therefore the streets were even fuller, the people even more cheerful, and the celebrations even more numerous. After our stay in the capital, we took a bus to Lomé, which gave us the opportunity to also see the rural parts of the lovely tropical country....

If you have enough time, you should definitely try to visit both of them, since both offer countless beautiful sights. We only had two days, so we decided to explore São Tomé. We tend to like tropical islands - a lot, but we never imagined that we would love...

Country Nr 12 – Liberia

Country 12/196: Liberia Destination: Monrovia Dates: From 16th to 18th of September Monrovia is the capital of Liberia and it's a beautiful, diverse, and modern city. As for the local food, it's the first time that we really didn't like it. The tastes were way too strong! But that's just our humble opinion, we're sure many of you would love it. :) There is lots of love to be found on the streets of Monrovia, we've witnessed some truly heartwarming scenes! However, since people really don't like being photographed it's getting increasingly difficult to get an HQ photo of love....

Country 11/196: Sierra Leone Destination: Freetown Dates: From 14th to 16th of September Now, this is a real honeymoon destination!! ;) ♥ Beautiful beaches, tropical nature, great food, and an unbelievably picturesque city. The people are very friendly and welcoming, the streets are lively and colorful, and the landscape is incredibly diverse. We really loved it. :) But most of all we love and respect the fact that this country, which was troubled by war and disease for a very long time, has finally found peace.

Countries Nr 9 & 10 – Guinea & Guinea-Bissau

Country 9/196 was Guinea-Bissau, but due to our health issues, we only spent a night there. It was an awesome road-trip night, but sadly, we don't have any photos to show. Hopefully, we'll find the time to visit Guinea-Bissau again. Country 10/196: Guinea Destination: Conakry Dates: From 12th to 14th of September Since it was the middle of the rainy season in Guinea, it was raining during our entire stay, which made it difficult to explore Conakry, but we did our best. Our initial plan was to visit Îles de Los - the well-known island group close to the capital,...
