Ghana is probably one of the mostly popular and touristy West African countries for travellers, next to Senegal and Gambia maybe. Although I haven't checked what are the things to do there, but I heard from many people that Ghana is worth going.
In general, West Africa isn't the most popular destination though, part of reason being the flight connections. Living in Europe makes it easy for me to fly there but I can see why many travellers from other continent or even many world travellers would exclude this part of the world from their world trip plan. Fair enough, lack of primary touristic product compared to the East African countries, poor transport conditions, plus the visa (which is an expensive pain) etc. So many reason to hold you back from visiting it.
Then why do I still want to go? After a few years of "checklist" kind of travelling in many countries, I finally get tired of it. So many landmarks, so many things to do, but what's the meaning behind it? Taking some picture and Instagram/Steemit them, look how many places I've been, how amazing I am?
I just get tired of it. haha.
Don't think I'll make much plan for things to do in Cote d'ivoire and Ghana, just see where the bush taxi takes me.
OK, back to my topic, getting visa for Ghana in Brussels.
I know most people get visa while travelling in WAfrica, but since I have a lot of free time, I did it in Brussels to save some time, I only have 3 weeks, it's like nothing really in WAfrica. But for sure I'll re-visit it again, maybe during the Voodoo festival in Benin. Variation is always the inspiration, right?
