Travel Blogging: The Ugly Truth Social Media Doesn’t Show

I’ve started getting to that phase of my travel blogging journey, where I’m beginning to gain a little traction.

Port Victoria – The Smallest Capital in Africa

When people talk about the most mesmerizing capital cities in the world, you’d expect to hear the usual rabble about Paris, London, Prague, Budapest, New York – the usual suspects.

There are some places on earth that catch you by the scruff or your neck, pull your head back, pour a pint of your favourite beer down your throat and then while you’re still trying to recover from the happy high, cast a spell on you that will change your life forever after.
