I’m the kind of traveller who looks for the most out-there destination possible. If I have a choice to go somewhere “everyone” goes or somewhere “no one” goes, I’ll always choose the latter. That’s what I did when I decided to go to Africa. Kenya and Tanzania obviously sound amazing, but who wouldn’t want to check out what exactly is going on in Benin, Togo and Burkina Faso? And Ouagadougou is sure to be the best-named country capital in the world. I just had to know what it was like there. How do the people live? What does the land look like? What does the food taste like? What exactly happens on The Voodoo Trail? Here’s what I discovered.
