Lying on what’s known as the Gold Coast of Africa, located between the Ivory Coast and Togo is the enthralling country of Ghana. Hailed as the most developed nation in Western Africa with a growing economy, easy transport and stable democratic government Ghana has become known as “Africa for beginners”.
For those who aren’t quite up to scratch on their geography, Tunisia is a small country in North Africa squeezed in between Algeria and Libya. It’s an incredibly vibrant country, with a diverse range of French, Italian, Arabic and African cultural heritage, and a landscape which stretches along the coast of the Mediterranean down to the Sahara dessert. I was lucky enough to spend a year living there as a student in 2007, and completely fell in love with the country and its people.
