How to travel Africa like the billionaire you are not!

July 3, 2018
Lilmissbelle- Zimbabwe

My first impression of Zimbabwe was Kenya in early 2000. Unrealistically expensive airtime and data, numbingly slow internet, dysfunctional systems (we still have those though) and a people that are unbelievably insouciant about it all. When I bought my local…
