The Harmattan Haze in Malabo

This time of year brings the Harmattan Haze to the air of many West African Nations.  Equatorial Guinea has been hit hard by the dry dusty West African trade winds.  The air is filled with dust from the Sahara that blows into the Gulf of Guinea.  This phenomenom occurs from November to March and gives the sky an almost foggy appearance.

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.
