Fantafrica ¦ Pete Martin ¦ Transformational journeys

“FANTAFRICA”

There is no road to happiness,
happiness is the road.

One man’s search for meaning in life’s third stage …

In this travel adventure, Pete Martin experiences the joy of providing housing, schooling and football training to street children in Ghana. Subsequently, he embarks on a journey of discovery across various parts of Africa – a journey on the outside becomes a journey on the inside. The author comes to terms with the change in his life stage, from one of achievement to now one of quiet satisfaction, of being able to now say no to being indiscriminately busy and committing only to the right things, of surrendering to the present and enjoying the now as he travels in South Africa, Morocco, São Tomé, Senegal and Cape Verde. There is no road to happiness, as happiness is the road.
