Ben Southall has made a career of traveling the world. A few wise decisions paired with some good old fashioned luck have afforded Southall a life that most of us only dare to dream about. But it’s also really hard work. Being a working traveler means you have to be part journalist, part photographer, part videographer, part curator, part TV personality, and part biographer. Let’s not pretend that’s an easy job.
I sat down with Southall recently to talk about how one can pursue a life on the road, the joys of traveling the Islamic world, and travel’s continued importance in the current political climate.
When the sun goes down on the African savanna it's meal time. Not only do the big carnivores start their nightly patrol for the next tasty morsel, but so do we! 🐆🦁🇿🇦 The nightly lighting of the braai was the perfect time to sit back with a cold beer and prepare for a night of game viewing 🍺⛺️🔥 #mynikonlife #fisheye #campfire #southafrica #travel #sunset #big5 #braai
