Whilst they are not intended as a guide book, I have endeavoured to include information about where I stayed, what I ate, what I saw and how to go about it if you were to visit the countries in question. My previous writings – the ‘Dhaka to Dakar’ books, were simply travel experiences. This time I wanted to go a little further for the reader.I wanted to include any stories and experiences I thought were interesting, important or amusing whilst I was travelling. I want to encourage you the reader to read, think about, and then perhaps go there yourself. You will find information on the places I stayed and visited, and how I got there and around.Cameroon is nestled away below Nigeria in West Africa. People know Cameroon for football, and perhaps not much else as far as the rest of the world is concerned, but for the traveller and backpacker Cameroon is full of beauty and friendly people. It is a hidden gem in a region of the world that gets few visitors at present.‘Short Journeys – Cameroon’ sees me visit Douala, Kribi, Limbe, Bamenda and the Ring Road are, and finally the capital Yaounde. I discover a beautiful, relaxed country. I spend time chilling out in Kribi, visit an amazing primate sanctuary in Limbe, and meet a King and a Cameroonian minister whilst exploring the Ring Road in north-western Cameroon.This book is full of experiences and tips, with some small details on where I stayed and getting from A to B. It’s the perfect starter if you are thinking about visiting Cameroon (although it is not a guide book!) or interested in reading travelling stories. I enjoyed visiting Cameroon immensely, it was the perfect blend of adventure, relaxation and discovery.I visit:DoualaKribiLimbeBamenda, Bali and the Ring Road areaAnd Yaounde.Includes 38 photos taken by the author.
