Going Home to Africa

My 20 000km journey home through West Africa

Interview - The Inspired Nomads


I was pleased to be interviewed by traveller Heather Markel who also interviews other travellers and their journey's.  Below is the interview


Heather Markel and Dot Bekker discuss the value of leaving stability - especially when what's keeping you stable is also keeping you tethered to unhappiness and stuff. There are some excellent insights in this interview, especially for those of you on the fence about leaving stability. You'll want to listen to this one!

Dot Bekker heads up a great girl's education charity, Kusasa. You can learn more about it at www.kusasa.africa and on Facebook at @kusasa.africa

Dot is on Facebook as @GoingHomeToAfrica and her website is www.goinghometoafrica.com
