Days in Lagos

Waking up in Lagos and walking to get coffee was one of my favorite moments of my day.  I stayed at The Salty Lodge in the old town area and it was the perfect base for days of wandering around.  There were two different coffee spots within a five-minute walk, depending on what sounded good that morning. The first was Black and White Coffee Shop.  Their brewed coffee and breakfast was amazing and the staff was friendly and welcoming.

I quickly set to work, taking photographs of the village and its inhabitants as they went about their daily routines. As I explored the village, […]

Into The Wild

It was an early morning start for our one-day safari in Mikumi National Park, located in southern Tanzania. We were filled with excitement and anticipation as we set out to explore the vast wilderness and witness the incredible wildlife that calls this place home.

We marveled at their beauty and watched in awe as they gracefully wandered through the savannah. It was an amazing sight to see them in their natural habitat. Next, we […]

A Full and Thankful Heart

“The Universe is not outside of you. Look inside yourself; everything that you want, you already are.”– Rumi Gratitude is a powerful emotion that can have a significant impact on our well-being and happiness.
