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, but due to the heavy rain, it was impossible to do so. We took a tour of the city and visited some of its most popular sites. We appreciated the city’s diversity, the colorful market, the Grand Mosque of Conakry, and the lush nature surrounding the city. The people are very friendly, however, we’ve noticed, that some people don’t like it if you take photos of the city (not even of the buildings), which kind of disables the growth of tourism, which is a shame since the country has a lot to offer.

Thank you, Guinea, it was a pleasure! 🙂

Found lots of LOVE in Guinea. 😉 ♥
