WHAT IS THE UNEXPECTED EXPEDITION?

The Unexpected Expedition is project that aims at showing different, more up-to-date and mainly more positive side of Africa: its people, cultures, music, businesses, fashion, growth and other often overlooked topics. I (Ala) will travel overland from Cape Town, the city at the far end of African continent to Europe and while doing so I will be talking, meeting but mainly listening to what people here want to share with you.
