It Began In Africa T-Shirt

Why did i name this blog “It began in Africa”, I used to have a T-shirt inscribed that as indicated on the above photo, i bought the T-shirt when I was leaving for a trip to Europe and many people I met on the road like it. When I was in Ghana one guy designing T-shirts also like it and asked that i give it to him. I agreed despite it being my favourite, i promised promised myself that in return i will make a blog and call it “IT BEGAN IN AFRICA”.

This blog is about all things i interface with in my career, interests and travels. Mineral Exploration is my career, Interests range from photography, art and live performance. Travel is what occupies my time when not working, sometimes i do both at the same time, i love backpacking, road trips and anything that takes me to unknown places. Big travels plans included seeing each and every country in Sub Sahara Africa, i have seen more than half already and hope to see others in the next 3 years.

Enjoy the African journey with me.

    Hi Thapelo, just stumbled upon your blog and love it. We’ve traveled to southern Africa over 8 times now since 1995 and love it all. We’re from California. Your experiences are inspiring and hellah funny at times. Really admire the way you like to dig down and find a bit of the real flava of the places you visit. Very few travelers ever do that. Hope you’ve been able to continue your travels… 2013 seems your latest post. Cheers and keep on steppin’, bhuti!

      Hi Victor thanks for the compliments. I do lot of traveling but more ‘formal’ for business and with family. Its also due to work commitments that i have stopped writing. Please post your stories and would love to read them.
