Hot News: Ethiopian Airlines Now Flying From Manila

Now Filipinos can choose to go to Africa for their next chosen destination because Ethiopian Airlines offers direct flights to Addis Ababa from Manila three times a week!

Apparently, Ethiopia is known as  The Land of The Firsts and The Land of The Awakenings. What beautiful names! One of the cradle’s of civilations, it is the intersection between North Africa, the Middle East and Sub-Saharan Africa. Did you know that it is the birthplace of coffee?

I found this sweet little Ethiopian girl playing with flowers. All of a sudden I missed my little globetrotter who I left for a few hours to be in this event.

I must admit that before attending this launch, my thoughts of Africa weren’t too bucketlist-worthy. When someone mentions the place, images of extreme poverty fills my head. Yes, I knew that Africa is probably the best place for an amazing safari. But beyond that concept,  all I knew about Africa was very little and fed to me by media: television, newsprint and movies! Then I discovered about the movement #ThisIsTheAfricaTheMediaNeverShowsYou on Instagram.

This is Mozambique

Rwanda!


And this is Sierra Leone 🙂


Seeing these photos and knowing better about the REAL Africa makes me want to book a flight to Ethiopia with my little tots! Who’s with me?
