Our Africa bucket list

As you may or may not already know, in 2018 and 2019 we are planning to take a trip around the world in an attempt to become the first couple to travel to all 196 sovereign nations in Guinness World Record time. 😉 We will promote love, peace, and sustainability. Read more about project 196xLOVE here.

First, we will visit all 54 independent countries in Africa. We will only have time to visit one destination in each country. Depending on the limited and changing transportation and accommodation options we will have to choose the exact destinations later on, but for now, let us announce the ‘finalists’. 😉
