97th on my continuing saga to accomplish the #lakbay100 journey
June 07 to 08, 2019

My 75th solo backpacking trip15th country to visit in African continent94th country visited on my journey #lakbay100, 5th continent on my list and of course and usual budget do-it-yourself itinerary from arrival to departure. I did not research that much for this country due also on limited time and laziness.


Mozambique's eastern coastline along the Indian Ocean is more than 1,000 km long, a fantastic draw for scuba divers, fishermen, sailors and beach lovers.
