The Real Truth About Living in Africa


Today I interview my younger brother, who has done something that I would probably never do.

Live in Africa.

A mission trip to Jamacia broke the fear of traveling for Cody when he was younger, and now he’s traveled around the world, visiting our sister in Spain, and our topic today, studying abroad in Uganda.

He’ll share with what life is REALLY like living in Africa and also recount a hilarious travel mishap that includes tap dancing shoes, a trip to Turkey, and lots of sobbing.

Also, please don’t forget to vote for us on the Lights, Camera, Switzerland site! If we win we’ll be hosting the pilot episode of a brand new travel show and we’ll also be doing some extra special for our listeners, but we have to win for you to find out what it is!!
