The land of many lakes.

Ethiopia has a special place in my heart and just feels right. I have visited this East African country twice, at least 4 weeks each time. Before visiting Ethiopia please remember to check review any visa requirements. If you're going to have a YOLO moment you can also acquire a visa on arrival for $50. The city of Addis Abba is booming with development and new infrastructure. Everyone is on the move so its quite busy and love that. You can rent a car a drive for the 2 months with a foreign licence but its not for the faint hearted. This is a place I wish the news would just get it right and give them their props. There are so many gems in this country its hard to decide where to start. Firstly, the culture is rich, if you go you must visit the Fendika Cultural Centre. Live music, poetry, gallery and performances. This is a must, you will not regret it. If you are an expat or just travelling, you'll meet everyone there but go early because people pile in. Venturing out a little there are several resorts and newly built waterpark. The food is great but coming with our western bellies boi, be prepared lol. I'm a foodie so ill eat almost anything regardless. I ate a lot of meat which was served raw, yes I said it "RAW" with something like a roti called Injera which should be dipped in some sauces. my go to. Concluding, I love Ethiopia. The people are chilled but at the same time always in a rush. after a few days I was driving screaming and beeping my horn like ive lived there all my life. If you've never been, its a definite must.
