    • General travel advice and opinions

      Ethiopia Nov 30, 2016 at 7:05 AM

      Hi - I am an adventurous and experienced traveler but I am also an older woman traveling alone. It looks like they have lifted many restrictions and most people who go there are doing ok. I am not a fearful person but I am wondering about the general atmosphere and if I would be presumptuous about exploring places on my own. I am used to jumping on public transportation and getting to sites independently. I do not drive and do not have the budget or desire to go with a guide. Would this attitude and approach be unrealistic, though, in Ethiopia? Thanks!

    • Current safety situation?

      Hi - I'm about to return to travelling after far too many years in an office job!
      I'm landing in Addis and plan to travel to Moyale by road. I've heard the back of a truck is the cheapest option - anyone have any tips on this, or advice on a better way of doing it?

      Thanks very much.
