I have extensive backpacking experience all around the world, including a good amount of time in Ethiopia where I traveled to many places in both the north and south of the country. It's a truly amazing place and worth visiting for anyone looking for an adventure.

Ask budgetguy a question about Ethiopia.


I have extensive backpacking experience around the world, including traveling all over Mali. It's an amazing country, but it can be challenging at times. The challenge adds to the reward, though!
