Fufu with groundnut soup( with meat and salmon) My first meal in Kumasi at a Chop Bar (with no name ๐Ÿ˜‚) at Daaban Town, Kumasi. The town is close to Krofrom. .............. Please, please before you start thinking I eat too much ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ, I was eating with my guide lol ๐Ÿ˜‚. That’s a meal ๐Ÿฅ˜ for two (2) I was so hungry after the days tour. All I had taken throughout the day was coconut ๐ŸŒด .............. Swipe left to see that blow. Lol will you blame me? I was hella hungry but I enjoyed every bit of this meal. I just didn’t like the taste of the fish .............. One thing I would like to point out though when it comes to consumables. I would advice you stay away from sachet water and go for the bottled just to be on the safer side. .............. Don’t be afraid to have a taste of new and different meals but be picky as well. You would want to stay healthy throughout your adventure period. Have fun exploring Ghana ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ญ • • • • #explorewithesirhule #kumasi #dinner #africa #ghana #travelphotographer #tourist #travel #fun #adventure #westafrica #travelafrica #travelblog #placestovisit #traveblogger #vacation #instatravel #iphoneonly #blackblogger #travelblogger #foodie
On my way to Ntonsu Adinkra Village in Esaase in the Ashanti Region, Ghana ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ญ I could tell my tour guide was tired but he wouldn’t admit that lol ๐Ÿ˜†. I was tired too but I was too excited to see the village to even have the space in my mind to think about me being tired. ............... Pursuing what you love and loving what you do doesn’t mean there are no downturns to it. I still want to pursue them because in the end, the hard times are worth it. It’s part of the experience and believe me, it’s part of the fun. ............... Without them you don’t get to push yourself, challenge the inner you to personal development.  The learning process mounds you as a person. Don’t ignore that. ............... So you don’t get to do what you have passion for simply because it’s easy but behind the smiles and the fancy end products, there are prices to be paid ๐Ÿ’ฐ tag someone who would like to read this. ................ To me, this brings you the ultimate form of happiness. I sometimes think I would feel lifeless without passion anything. What about you? ................ What do you think? @ekowsimpson @phrof_66 @selfmadeuch Do you agree?? Comment below ๐Ÿ‘‡๐ŸผThe one thing that always guarantees your happiness. • • • • #explorewithesirhule #kumasi #ntonsu #africa #ghana #travelphotographer #tourist #travel #fun #adventure #westafrica #travelafrica #travelblog #placestovisit #traveblogger #vacation #instatravel #iphoneonly #blackblogger #travelblogger #passion
So I’m out here living the krofrom Kumasi life to the fullest. Maybe I feel like an Ashanti for a moment lol ๐Ÿ˜‚  With Rev. Charles Bonsu, head Pastor at the Light House Anagkako Assemblies at Krofrom, Kumasi and his wife Theresah Bonsu. .............. Theresah was so sweet. It just got a little awkward when the whole congregation started walking towards me when the head Pastor called out for new visitors and it turned out I was the only visitor haha ๐Ÿ˜† .............. I briefly introduced myself to the church after hand shaking about 20 members and had a little chat with the Head Pastor.  It was all fun after. .............. I was introduced by my host family to some of their friends after the church service and we had a mini photo shoot as almost all of them wanted a picture with me. I guess that’s how popular my host family is lol ๐Ÿ˜† • • • #explorewithesirhule #kumasi #africa #ghana #travelphotographer #tourist #travel #fun #adventure #westafrica #travelafrica #travelblog #placestovisit #traveblogger #vacation #instatravel #iphoneonly #blackblogger #travelblogger
Growing rocks Krofrom, a district in Kumasi. That’s where I am based while in Kumasi. There are rocks, high and low in this community. ............. These rocks ‘grow’ by themselves through erosion. Probably underground but unearthed through erosion. You can find these rocks in houses, in front or at the backyards of buildings here. .............. I was just wondering why people still acquire the lands for building purposes when this keeps happening. But Harry, my host, told me the rocks are quarried and sold till they have a leveled up land and they resell the lands most of the time to third parties. • • • #explorewithesirhule #kumasi #africa #ghana #travelphotographer #tourist #travel #fun #adventure #westafrica #travelafrica #travelblog #placestovisit #traveblogger #vacation #instatravel #iphoneonly #blackblogger #travelblogger #rocks
Finally I arrived in Kumasi, the Ashanti Region. We’re starting off with visit to Manhyia Palace This region as a whole holds so much history and it’s preservation as compared to other regions in Ghana is high and appreciable. ............... This is Manhyia Palace. The thrown and residential palace for the King of the Ashanti Kingdom. Otumfuo Nana Osei Tutu II (Nana Kwaku Dua- His real name) ................ Manhyia Palace is gazetted as a tourist site but because of tradition and the fact that it’s also the residential Palace, cameras are not allowed by tourists inside the Palace. Coverage of the place is allowed under certain circumstances but not to tourists ............... You would be charged and fined when caught so please just be careful while there.  Have a great time touring and learning. • • • #explorewithesirhule #kumasi #africa #ghana #accraphotographer #tourist #travel #fun #adventure #westafrica #travelafrica #placestovisit #traveblogger
I’m always sad ๐Ÿ˜ž and heartbroken๐Ÿ’” being told what our forefathers had to go through then. I have been to this castle 4 times already and I have always taken part in all the history briefing sessions. ................. Our forefathers were cruelly mistreated and disregarded. Learning the brutality and all the things they had to endure feels almost inhuman. With this knowledge, it’s easy to fall into the pattern of hating the whites for what their forefathers did to our forefathers. That’s understandable.๐Ÿ‘‹ ................. Our leaders sold our own people into slavery; OUR OWN. Maybe they cared more about their survival than the impact of their actions on today AFRICA.  But know this, the triangular trade (slave trade) grew successful because of the alliances the colonial masters had with our leaders (community leaders and the chiefs) ................. What I’m trying to say is, we should stop the blame game and stop hating the whites for what we “think” their forefathers did to our forefathers.  What was done to our forefathers was cruel and in my opinion “inhuman”. ................. Notwithstanding, We have lots of chances to make the world ๐ŸŒŽ a better place. All of us have a role to play in our small little way. Change starts from us as individuals  Let’s make Africa GREAT again ๐Ÿ˜ข ๐Ÿ™Œ • • • #explorewithesirhule #elmina #africa #ghana #accraphotographer #tourist #travel #fun #adventure #weatafrica #travelafrica #placestovisit #ghanablogger #traveblogger
I love the flare of discovery and adventure travel brings. It makes me feel alive and happy. Learning new things, meeting new people, stepping out of my comfort zone. ................. Spend the time to know what you’re passionate about and what really makes you happy. And do more of that. One thing I always say is, when old age catches up with you, all you will have then, would be your memories of today. Let each day of your life count, impact positivity in someone’s life in your own small little way. ................. Be the change you wanna see. Laugh a lot more, smile a lot more, be silly a lot more, love a lot more but more importantly make sure you’re living your best life. Have a fruitful day y’all๐Ÿค— • Happy Valentine’s Day โค๏ธ • • • #explorewithesirhule #love #africa #ghana #accraphotographer #tourist #travel #fun #adventure #weatafrica #travelafrica #placestovisit #traveblogger

Elmina Beach, Bantoma- Ghana ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ญ These street stones are used to divide the Bantoma beach into 4 parts. Two(2) are deemed “sacred” and dangerous as it’s known to have caused the death of many and the other two are those the people can access. .............. When I made a move to go to one of the sacred areas, the people at sea started shouting and warning โš ๏ธ not to go there as the sea can take me away lol ๐Ÿ˜‚. .............. Anyways, that’s their beach they know better than I do. So I  backed off but still went to one later in the evening ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค— and I loved it. The sea ๐ŸŒŠ there was so fresh and clean. . #explorewithesirhule #elmina #africa #ghana #accraphotographer #tourist #wanderer • • • #travelphotography #fun #adventure #nofilter #ghanatourism #travelafrica #placestovisit #traveblogger #ghanatourism #nofilter
