Prompt #20: What part of Africa interests you the most?

How: Respond to the prompt – through a blog post, picture, video, drawing, tweet, comment at the bottom of this article – however you want to express yourself. Then tweet and link your response @BootsnAll with the hashtag #indie30
Week 3 theme: Roam if you want to
Details: See below

There is one guiding question/prompt each day, followed by a series of questions, ideas, and comments meant to help you dig deeper. These aren’t meant to be answered directly, just to help (feel free to address any, all, or none of the guiding questions below).

What part of Africa interests you the most?

  • The culture?
  • The animals or nature?
  • The climates?
  • The history?
  • If you could go to Africa, what part do you want to visit the most and why?
  • If you have been to Africa, where did you go and what did you like the most?
  • What was the most unusual thing you encountered?

Tools and inspiration: Each day we’ll add a few links having to do with that day’s topic. If you’re experiencing a creativity block, maybe these can give you a few ideas:

Week 3: Roam If You Want To

Each week will have a different theme, and this week we are focusing on destinations around the world. Everyone has their favorite regions, countries, and cities, and we want to hear what yours are this week!

How to participate

We’re inviting anyone from around the world who has a passion for long-term travel to participate in our month-long art project. You can respond to each day’s prompt however you see fit – through a blog post, a photograph, a video, a painting, a tweet, a Facebook or G+ comment, commenting below – it’s completely up to you! We’ll share our favorites each day on Twitter, Facebook, and Google +. At the end of each week we’ll round up our favorite responses and write a blog post linking to each. Each Wednesday afternoon at 3:30 EST during April we’ll meld #RTWChat with #indie30. We invite anyone interested to join us to chat about that week’s topic.

It’s never too late to start – find out the nitty gritty details here!

There is not really a developed back packer circuit but this makes it more of an adventure. We enjoyed the diverse cultures both Christian and Muslim; local village Eco projects; important historical context of the the continent in relation to the rest of the world; the diverse regions of savannah and rainforest and affordable national parks. The safari is very cheap and is less than £100 for 3 days. There were ups and downs, but now we are back in England we can truly appreciate the experience we had and how amazing it was! Last but not least the people of Ghana are very friendly and welcoming, Akwabaa!

I loved how much life was happening in the streets every day, from drum circles, to cooking, to chatting with friends.
