Africa is one of the most beautiful continents to visit because of its rich and untouched natural beauty! Some countries in Africa have also preserved their cultural traditions and this becomes such a huge tourist attraction activity. Take an example of the Maasaiin Kenya who are known for their traditional fabric, the Maasaishukaand also their cultural dances. 

I like to think that if reincarnation is true and by some stroke of luck I get to choose what I’d like to come back as, it would be as a bird. Imagine being an eagle and being able to soar borders even without having to worry about things like visas, weak passports and ticket prices? Oh my! I would roam the world! And start of from Africa.
