Employing Locals To Educate When Travelling

Often when we travel in developing countries where the cost of living is lower, we find we can take more time, and travel at a slower pace.

This gives us time to also catch up and have more dedicated time in educating Explorason.

Our recent time along the Kenyan coast has been just amazing.

We have been able to meet a lot of the local Kenyans.

Tourism is low at the moment, and so we find  great way to help them earn money is to ’employ them’ to educate Explorason.
