I am a traveler … on an endless journey of self-discovery.
Welcome to My World!
Hi Sara! We stumbled across your blog on WordPress and were fascinated by your ‘insiders guide’ to Ethiopia. Its a country we are fascinated by and would love to visit one day – especially to drink the coffee! We look forward to reading more of your blogs and wish you luck in achieving your dream of being a travel writer 🙂 Thanks for stopping by our blog too! Dan and H-J
Dan and H-J, Thank you so much for the love really appreciate it and believe me Ethiopia would love to have you and about the coffee I assure you that you won’t be disappointed. Sara
Sara, I had the opportunity to visit your country long ago, 1969, I was flying humanitarian add to your country after some natural disaster. I’m sorry that I don’t remember specifically what it was. I was able to spend a couple of days in Addis Ababa and it was fascinating. Thanks for finding my blog which led me to yours.
John, thank you and I do hope you will come to Ethiopia again!
First, thanks for stopping and for the follow. I think you are my first follower from Ethiopia. I have always had an interest in your country and have every intention if being there someday. In the meantime I will have to spend some time learning about it here.
Thank You So Much John!

You have an amazing blog. I was very fascinated by the name Addisababa when in school and often wondered how it would be. I am so glad that I found this blog and got an insight into your city, your way of life and your country. Love and blessings, Sangeeta
Thank you Sangeeta for stopping by and for your kind words it is much appreciated!
A fellow Ethiopian photographer shared your blog with me. I was very happy to see that there IS someone out there blogging about Ethiopia. It has been many years (2002) since I returned, but I’ve been considering returning just to cover the country, now that I’m a travel writer/blogger & photographer like yourself.
By the way, love the photos of the birds – beautiful!
Keep up the great work,
This is really an honor Lily, I love your works you are so amazing I am just starting out so Thank you so much for your support means a lot.
I have to say that I really enjoyed my stay in your country, I hope that I can revisit it soon!
Thank you so much.
You have started an excellent blog and guide, showing Addis Abeba and its culture like no one else before.
Thank you so much for your kind words means a lot.
Hi Sara! You have such a warm smile and I have enjoyed reading your blog. Follow your heart and live your dreams!

The pleasure is all mine. I enjoyed your blog and looking forward for more and thank your for stopping by and for your kind words:)
Hello Sara, I didn’t get to read a lot on your blog yet but I bookmarked it and it’s definitely on my to-do list. I’m gonna visit Ethiopia in August and sure this blog will be a nice appetizer 😉
Thank you so much!
Hi Sara, thanks so much for stopping by and liking a post on the Sunshine Scrapbook! I must say, your blog shows a side of Ethiopia that I’ve never considered before 🙂
I love Natalie Goldberg 🙂 Have you read Anne Lamott’s Bird By Bird? You might enjoy that…
No I didn’t:( Thanks for sharing that:)
I have nominated you for the Liebster Award. Incase you do not accept awards, just acknowledge it. Keep blogging, hope to visit your country some day. You can check out the details in my blog post. http://lifeisavacation.wordpress.com/2013/07/06/liebster-award/
Thank you so much this is really an honor!
Hi Sara. I saw that you were reading my blog and I thought I’d have a look at yours. What a wonderful, interesting site! Thank you for showing us your country both with your words and your many, colourful photos. It makes for great reading! If I win Lotto one day, I would love to come and visit you, go shopping with you and of course take coffee. I really enjoyed hearing some of the music of your country. The Maori of New Zealand have some beautiful music too – and they also have some scary stuff. When I was a little girl, Queen Elizabeth came to visit and was given a traditional Maori welcome. I was terrified she was going to be killed! You might be familiar with the Maori Haka, which is performed before the start of many rugby games. It gives me a shiver up my spine every time I hear it. I’ll leave you with a link to an example of one. God bless, keep on blogging! 🙂 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BI851yJUQQw
Oh that is so sweet and I do hope you come to visit my country one day. Thank you so much for your kind words it is really appreciated. I am enjoying your blog and oh yes the Maori Haka dance little bit scary but so entertaining I do really enjoyed it thank you for sharing that:)
My sister told me to check out your blog, I really enjoyed the photographs and articles.
North West England
Thank you so much Thomas and please thank your sister for me 🙂
Hi Sara! I absolutely love your blog. It’s very insightful and provides a lot of interesting information about Ethiopia. I’ve lived in Addis in the 1990’s, and one of the places that fascinates me the most is Merkato. I hope to hear about it one day on your blog.
Thank you so much Tatiana for your kind words. Merkato definitely! and I just hope you come to visit again 🙂

Love your blog-site. I tried to see your recent post on Shashamene, but was unable reach it. I was really disappointed as Shashamene was one of my favourite places I visited in Ethiopia, as it has a strong Jamaican connection.
Maybe there is a problem with the site and it needs to be checked out. Look forward to reading and seeing your pictures when they are up on the site.
Hey Errol you are right and I just published it again hope it works this time. Above all else thank you for your kind comment and Enjoy!

Sara! Thank you for visiting – I’m happy to find you because of it! Now I will stroll around here and enjoy your lovely place.
I have an old childhood friend who grew up in Ethiopia and we have talked much about your country when we were younger. She now lives and works in China and has done so for about ten years, so we seldom meet. I have never been to Ethiopia myself, but I’m sure it is a wonderful country.
My pleasure and I love your blog! Thank you so much for stopping by:)
