I got a few clothes made it Ghana. I normally just go to the Market and purchased some things I see that I like, this time I wanted to have my clothes tailor-made. The experience of dealing with the tailor wasn’t good. Next time I will definitely do certain things differently to ensure that I get exactly what I paid for.
1) Don’t work with a middle man
2) Don’t be afraid to communicate what you want. You are the one paying for it.
3) If you don’t like it or it is not what you asked for don’t take it or pay for it.
Traveling teaches you so many lessons when it comes to dealing with other people and I have learned my lesson twice (once in Thailand and Ghana) when it comes to having my clothes tailor-made. #fashionista
Relax in the arms of mother nature, watch the tantalizing waterfalls,the plummeting green valleys, tall mountains , the serene lakes and so much more as we embark on this journey to Tamhini Ghat & Kundalika Valley
I don't know who needs to hear this, but it is OK to change. You are not a failure for letting go. For finding a new path. For seeking joy. For being a better you. We must all make space in our garden in order to bloom.

Don’t get it twisted. I have doubts, every time I take a solo trip, when I’m in an Airbnb alone and I hear a thump, as I walk down the street with a man following closely behind behind, when I slide into the backseat of an cab- just me and a male driver, when I notice someone’s eyes lingering for a second too long, as I grip my valuables closely to my side on a crowded bus, and as I stare out the plane window during takeoff. Despite how the photos turn out, it’s not always twirling in the streets - sometimes it’s speed walking down a dimly lit alley while looking over my shoulder. Solo travel doesn’t necessarily get easier or less scary, at least not for me. These thoughts still sit in the back of my mind because let’s face it, anything can happen anywhere at any time. Even still, I refuse to let that stop me from living and seeing this great big world. I choose to acknowledge the fear, be vigilant, and enjoy everything as much as possible. I choose to go and keep going. - phone notes from Mexico
