Started the new year exploring some parts of Ghana. Guys, there are really beautiful places out here. All you need is a travel buddy with a good sense of humor and you’re all set for a wonderful time. So this year one of my favorite humans decided to do this with me. We explored some parts of the Eastern Region and ended it with a hike on the Shai Hills in the Greater Accra Region. It was incredibly fun! There were a lot of unplanned things on the trip which made it even more exciting.
Here are a couple of cool shots we took of all the places we visited. Hope it makes you wanna go out and explore Ghana some more. I’m already thinking of where next to visit!!
Aside being a foodie, I love flowers too. Flowers are simply beautiful. They are not complicated at all! Damn! I am a flower. Lol! Unfortunately in these parts, you don’t usually see some of these flowers just casually chilling. Anyway, these pretty girls caught my attention and we decided to have a photo session.

Sometimes, we need to take our eyes off our gadgets and appreciate the beauty around us. I get a bit worried when I notice that people have their eyes glued to their phones or to their electronic gadgets. We have become walking Zombies. You might miss out on an opportunity right in front of you! Hey! that’s the truth!
You may even miss that partner you have been praying to the universe for! God’s gonna be like, I put him/her right in front of you Fam! You missed it!
Can we just get our eyes off our screens for a bit and simply admire what’s above or around us? We take a lot of things for granted!
Today, if you happen to be reading this post, spare a few minutes to look outside, appreciate Gods amazing job. Look at the clouds (For God’s sake not the Sun!!!), Stare at the trees, look at your fellow human beings ( Ok.. that can be creepy! Don’t stare for too long!). Smile at someone! Just appreciate the fact that this comes to you freely!
Ok… you do get the point. lol.
Enjoy these random shots I took whilst on a trip to Cape Coast. I’m so dramatic! I know. You will get used to me soon.
Ghana is not just beautiful! It’s simply stunning! Explore Ghana!
