Visiting Africa for the first time was profound. This sounds cliche, but I seriously felt like I was at home. People see you. They acknowledge your physical and spiritual presence. Nothing is taken for granted.
In Kenya + Zanzibar, I saw and felt the people too. I felt the effortless way Africans connected with strangers and those they knew forever by offering a friendly smile and eye contact. Kenya's natural diversity and cinematic sunsets paired with Zanzibar's gorgeous beaches and cultural history made for unforgettable experience. The magic of East Africa is real.
