I’m Susan Takpi,  not a professional blogger, this will be evident throughout the site 🙂 Just a lover of  travel, archiving some of my favourite places.

So far, I have visited 39 different countries. According to the Been app,  only 16% of the world. Nothing I hear you cry, what does she know !  Evidently not much.

I cherish the precious memories and look back with gratitude at the places I have been fortunate to visit. I eagerly look forward to the new experiences and adventures yet to come. So have set myself the 50 before 50 challenge. That is to visit at least 50% of the world before age 50. I am a true believer in the wise words of one of my favourite authors.

Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.” – Maya Angelou
