Hitching a ride on a truck through central Africa, you witness some superb natural scenery but possibly have to experience what must be the worst roads in the world. With potholes large enough to swallow a bull elephant, the trucks support each other with tows to ensure passage through these treacherous roads.

Sadly, this photo is taken not a long way from Goma, in east Congo, which has made the news for all the wrong reasons. Civil war again is killing and starving people in this most majestic mountainous area.

Your body gets battered and bruised but the chance to experience Africa’s greatest travel wonders makes it all worth while, even if it takes a fair few days to cover only a short distance.

Welcome to Travel Wonders
My name is Mark and I’m a keen traveller. In fact, over the last 25 years, I’ve travelled to every continent and over 80 countries. This blog is about the most memorable destinations – the places I regard as the travel wonders of the world. I’m also a keen photographer, and have taken nearly all the photos you’ll see. During my travels, I’ve met some incredible people, seen inspiring places, viewed extraordinary wildlife and scenery and had some amazing experiences, and I’m writing these stories not only to entertain but primarily to inspire others to discover their own travel wonders.
