Back from Ethiopia, I wanted to share an experience I had there which could have ended badly. Everything worked out in the end, but it really brings home the issues of safety, preparation and having insurance when traveling.
We talk about our experiences in Ethiopia, good and bad, and what the future holds for tourism in this country.
This week it is just me. I talk about my recent trip to India, my upcoming trip to Ethiopia and I answer your questions.
