West Africa may be steeped in mystery, worry, political instability and recent medical crisis' for those who have not experienced it further than the media reports, though as a traveller I have visited a triumphant, vibrant, heart warming place that has forever changed me and will always call me back. The beauty of the people, their deep soul and integrity, is the day to day beating heart of this amazing continent and is a must for any traveller ready to receive life in all its raw vibrancy.
