My Weekend in Ghana

In Akosombo, a town in Ghana’s Volta Region, we spend part of the afternoon seeing the Volta River by speedboat. Harmattan fog blocks out any glimpse of sunlight, coloring the sky a light grey. I run my fingers through the river, enjoying the rush of cool water against my skin.

Friendly Footprints in Montana w/ Fred.

Everyone I’ve interviewed for Friendly Footprints talked to me about travel before COVID-19. Today, Fred talks to me about a stunning trip to Montana during the pandemic.
