Going Home to Africa

My 20 000km journey home through West Africa

Letz Cast Podcast

Lifeisontheotherside

I had met Jessica Bauldry when she interviewed me on the phone for an article which she published in the Luxembourg magazine Delano.  

She had been inspired by what I was aiming to do and wanted to take a different angle by interviewing me for her personal podcast.  

I was, at the time, already in Barcelona and working on BlueBelle when she did the interview.  Technology enabling me to be sitting in the back of the van in the street in Barcelona while she was in Luxembourg.

Many of may know her as the former president of the women’s networking organisation The Network. She lived in the Grand Duchy for four and a half years before deciding to embark on a major life journey to return home to Africa.
