I was hesitant to name this second photo after an entire continent for fear of generalizing, but I feel the statements that follow can be true for many African countries.
Hey all! Guess what?! I’M GOING TO TANZANIA THIS SUMMER WOO!! I know, I know, shocking, seeing as I’m basically there at least once a year. BUT, this time is going to be different! I’ll explain.
All the pictures taken in Tanzania from summer 2017! … More
It’s me again, your favorite Georgian-gone-Tanzanian! This week we saw SO MANY THINGS. 1. We went on safari in Ngorongoro Crater. I got crazy close to some zebras and some hippos (which were actually quite intimidating). I’ve been on safari before but every time is so different because you never know what you’re going to … More SAFARI TAKE 3
Good morning y’all! (I miss hearing y’all, this is the first time I’ve been the most southern person in a group ever…) In the past week we’ve gone from Kilimanjaro to Dar Es Salaam to Zanzibar! In Dar we visited former slave trade routes, the chapel that David Livingstone’s body was placed in before it … More
Hey all! I hope everybody had a safe and fun Independence Day!

Only a handful of updates so far, if I tell you everything it takes away my mystery and your intrigue, right? The Catholic hostel we’re staying in is breathtaking. Despite my attempt to arrive with no expectations, I think it’s nearly impossible to avoid drawing from past experiences. While the village I’ve stayed in before … More A FEW THINGS
You know what? 20 hours on a plane is hard. There are about, oh, maybe a million things I could complain about in this moment, in hour 10 (hour 2 of listening to the poor child a few rows up testing their lung capacity), but I’m not gonna. Instead, here are 7 things I am … More
Oh, was I not typing that into the Google search bar? Because if I’m being real y’all, I have no idea. I cut all my hair off, that’s something people do to get ready for a big trip, right? No?
