Progress on a Small Tropical Island Called Bioko.

Today, I took a drive to “Punta Hermosa.”  That means “Beautiful Point” in Spanish.  It’s located about a 30 min drive East of Malabo on the North East tip of Bioko Island.  The area is undergoing some major construction, a conference center, a hospital, a new Sofitel Hotel are being built and the jungle is being cleared along the coast to make way for a beach.  Punta Hermosa is going to be a first class tourist destination when it’s complete in the next year.  Equatorial Guinea will host the African Union Summit in the Summer of 2011 and “Punta Hermosa” will be the center-piece of a long list of improvements!

The above picture shows the conference center in the background and the dredge boat working on the beach.

The above picture is taken from the other direction, a few Equato-guineans seem to be enjoying the new beach!
Progress!

I am an adventure-loving American man, with a severe case of wander-lust and a desire to experience as much of this wonderful world as humanly possible. Every place I have visited or lived has taught me something about life and helped me grow. For me, traveling opens my eyes to how similar the human race is, yet at the same time, how unique we all are. I hope this blog will motivate you to put down the TV remote, dust off your backpack and decide to take a chance on an adventure. It can be a walk in a new neighborhood 2 miles from home or a trip to a far off distant land. I have lived in or visited over 50 countries during my life and hope to see many more. I want to share my experiences. I hope you enjoy the blog. -WAND3R3R, Somewhere on the Globe, 2014.
