Why travel to GHANA?
If you’re planning to travel to Ghana, this video can inspire you on what to put in your itinerary. Maki, a Czech volunteer in Ghana, is sharing her experience with you. She really experienced a lot and that’s why we needed to split it, and this is the 2nd part of the interview with her. If you haven’t watched the first part yet, start watching here.
Experience CAPE COAST / KUMASI / KAKUM NATIONAL PARK / AFADJATO, and more!
From Accra, Maki first traveled to Cape Coast where she visited the Elmina Castle. Her next steps led to Kumasi and Bonwire Kente Weaving Centre. Maki proudly showed the kente she bought there. An amazing experience for her was in the Kakum National Park and visiting a crocodile pond, she also enjoyed traveling by trotro, and going to Lake Bosomtwe. She also traveled to Volta Region and mentioned a bit about the history and legend of the Ashanti Kingdom.
Why travel to Ghana in Africa and what to experience there?
Watch Episode 5 of The Lucie Colors of HeArt on YouTube: Maki is sharing her experience of traveling to Ghana for 2 months as a volunteer for one Czech organization. We actually filmed this interview some time ago so now Maki actually really moved there as she planned to.
Maki is talking in this episode about preparation for her travel, and what vaccine is required for entering the country, she’s also mentioning some typical cuisine for Ghana and she was also able to share a real “behind the scene” video with us of how a typical dish is made. It takes a really lot of effort to make it!
A Czech volunteer shared her experience
It’s really interesting to hear about traditions and customs from her and about her travels around Accra which included a lighthouse in Jamestown, Aburi Garden, the first Ghanien Cocoa Farm, and Maki also visited the local Zoo, and of course, a couple of beaches.

Don’t let your past limit your future
We have officially passed 6 days in 2023 already and the first week of 2023 is almost over. New Year is always a great period to look over the past year and even years before 2022 and remind ourselves how far we have already come. Therefore I wanna remind you: Don’t let your past limit your future! And I would like to replenish this quote with one more:
A shitty past doesn’t have to equal a shitty future
I have been through a lot of shit in my life. Trust me. But I found faith in a better future. But it’s impossible to talk about the future without the present. You may not like where are you right now. I will be honest. I don’t also don’t fully like where I’m right now. But I’m remembering where I was just a not-so-long time ago.
Unpredictable paths of life
In 2020 I lived in 3 countries. For some reasons, I had to return to my home country at the end of that year. And it truly felt like a trip into the past. Literally. I returned to a flat that I left almost a year before my return. It felt soooo odd. Like I didn’t belong there anymore. Like I was already somewhere else. I unpacked my things (again) and immediately after that, I would like to pack them back into boxes (again). And I was right about that!
Feeling like you don’t fit in
If you feel you don’t belong where are you it’s quite possible that you just don’t. But for moving on to the next level and the life you want for yourself, you have to keep fighting. Fighting for your dreams, fighting for yourself. Resist acceptance. If you feel that you were meant to be for something different, then you were. You ARE. Don’t give up on your DREAM. Make it a GOAL. And keep going for it. Every single day.
New year, new opportunities
Take a new year as an opportunity to kick out new energy in yourself and go after the life you want! The only person who decides your future is you, my friend. Always remember that. So without further words, let me wish you a very successful year full of great achievements! Crush your goals and never ever give up! This is your year to shine, just plan it! 🙂
