On a scale of 1-10, how often do you travel?
What is your favourite African City?
How do you balance Work and Travel??
You know I’m only 25 and I don’t have family constraints yet. I can travel as soon as I’m ready to go. My job description doesn’t sound glamorous or exciting. I simply have a flexible job doing what I’m good at, content creation.
I like the fact that travel and photography are my passions and my hobbies, not my job. With careful planning, budgeting, and prioritizing, I think everything is possible. When you plan to achieve something big, it’s important to know how to save money and how to spend money wisely. Do I need to go to a restaurant every week or do I need a Starbucks latte every day? Absolutely not
Do you travel with a group or solo? Why?
What is your dream African destination?
Namibia,mostly because of the Namib desert and the ghost towns we can find in Namibia.
Dslr or gopro?
Dslr without no doubt. Nothing beats an interchangeable lenses system.
What camera do you use to take your pictures?
-Nikkor 85mm 1.8
I also use my phone (Iphone 7 plus) for some quick shots
