Collage No. 23 // The Collage Series - Mood:Africa

Today I was inspired by Africa. Traveling pretty much is the biggest inspiration ever, isn't it? Whenever I travel, I feel like it is literally opening my head, I am seeing new perspectives that I had not seen before, I look at my own life back home in a completely different way than before while and after traveling.

I think traveling is pretty much the best thing you can do to open your mind, to learn a lot about yourself and countries and cultures you did not know before. Moving abroad is an even bigger adventure, that's something I have done as well, but traveling already does the trick. I am absolutely addicted to traveling and I cannot wait to travel again - hopefully sooner than later. 

So I traveled to South Africa in 2008, only for a week, but that was pretty much my first time in Africa so I was really excited. I was visiting a friend who was there for an internship and I stayed in Johannesburg most of the time - but we also took a short trip to Durban at the Indian Ocean. The food and wine were delicious in South Africa, I was all hooked up! Next time I visit Africa, I want to go to Namibia - my mom traveled there this year and loved it. While she was there, she sent me lots of photos of all the wild animals she saw while being on a Safari. Yes, a trip to Namibia next certainly is on my travel list. 

Dreaming of Namibia, remembering my trip to South Africa, inspired me to do an African collage. 

Have you been to Africa? Which country or city will you be traveling next? Share with me here :)
