A good friend, Alison Burgh of Acorn Tourism Consulting, introduced me to the Traveling Spoon team. I got to know Alison while working on tourism marketing materials production for Ethiopian Tourism Organization. I also organized a trip for Alison and her husband David to the Danakil Depression whereby they came to my home and had dinner with my family.
A bonus, that I think is unique to Source Ethiopia Tours, was an injera-making lesson, dinner, and a coffee ceremony with Daniel and his family on the last night of our tour. If you are going to Ethiopia and want a trip of a lifetime, we highly recommend you go with Source Ethiopia Tours.

The photographs I captured which are now... Read More
