Last year, I traveled to Accra, Ghana. This was my first time in this country and I had no idea what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised by how beautiful the beaches were. After arriving back home, I wanted to go back so badly and see more of what the city and country had to offer.

I went to Labadi Beach with my family last weekend and had a really fun time. My kids loved playing in the water, and my wife loved reading her book as she watched them play. The waves were big enough for some kayaking and windsurfing, but not too big that we couldn’t swim in the water. There was also a long stretch of sand perfect for cycling on or walking barefoot at sunset. We stopped at one of the restaurants after an hour or so of swimming, where we enjoyed some drinks and food before heading home to rest up for work again tomorrow!
