I took this photo while visiting a school in The Gambia.
We were there making a short film about tourism helping local people.
Here’s a link to the film called ‘Nyodema’ which means ‘helping each other’ in Mandinka (and it’s also the name of community group that I’m involved with that helps schools in The Gambia). In this film you’ll see the school where this photo was taken as well as an interview with your’s truly which they sprung on me out of the blue!

I never travel without insurance. If something unexpected goes wrong the costs implications are just too high to take the risk. World Nomads provides travel insurance to travellers from over 130 countries. They're the perfect choice for long term travellers or single trip insurance.

When I’m travelling, especially to a new city, I use Viator and Get Your Guide to book tours and excursions, in particular, food walking tours or to visit somewhere tricky to get to by public transport.
