The most popular posts are shown on the right-hand side-bar. I think they reflect the main challenges people have living and traveling in Ghana.
I returned to Australia in early 2013 with Godwin Yidana, the man I met in Ghana in 2008 and started a life with there and now Australia, after 7 years living in Ghana altogether. I could write much more about life and travel , especially after starting an NGO in Bolga. We have many stories of struggle, joy, heart-ache, danger and illness. Malaria plagued me often, not to mention a rabies scare, but I wouldn't change anything. I wish I could go back and do the journey again from start to finish.
I just received the latest edition of the Bradt Guide to Ghana and it's made my heart ache with longing for places along the coast, especially Cape Coast and Ko-Sa Beach Resort near Elmina, and my main home in Ghana, now, Bolga.
I wish you all the best with travels and life in Ghana. Please feel free to contact me at gaylepescud(at)gmail.com with any questions.
