Fellow Hoosier! We're planning a trip through ivhq to Cape Town!!


No information here. Sorry, i don't feel that video/information merited the all capitol letters and multiple exclamation points. Its a sales pitch more than an informative video, but Godspeed young pilgrim.

Hello there.
I've always wanted to travel but I'm pretty overweight (200 pounds) and I've been trying so hard to loose weight so I can travel but it literally won't go.
What do you recommend..

Just bought your book to help me to plan my trip to Africa, will start to read and will star my trip next month. Congratulations for the website, for the book and for the videos! Hope to meet you soon in Ethiopia :)

Hi! Thanks for sharing your thoughts and I totally intend on buying your book soon. I noticed that you posted this 10 months ago, so my first question is are you still in Ethiopia? Jan. 2017? I'd love to come to Africa in April 2017 so if you are there still it'd be great to meet! Let me know. :)

Your videos are great! You really help a lot of people who want to travel cheap to africa.


Great tips, thanks!


you're so flipping cute haha


Instantly subscribed! I've travelled around Kenya and it's so important to dispel all of these myths about 'big bad Africa' and the fear that a lot of Americans have about travel as a woman. I love your videos, keep them coming :)

I'm doing the exact same route in July! I tried to download your book but it keeps telling me the link is broken. :/

Jennifer Masnyj

I was wondering, when you backpacked Africa were you able to speak with the locals, and what languages do you know helped you in you trip


God be with you!
