    Africah Harrigan Lives Life Like a Tourist

    in Writing

    Travel with Africah, the newest of the endeavors of Africah Harrigan, is a weekly blog that features activities, events, and fun things that she has done while traveling. Throughout her years of traveling, Africah has often found that people are a lot more enthusiastic to explore or try new things once they venture out from their hometown. However, they are the same people, who often overlook the beauty and attractions of their hometown and will probably opt to remain homebodies or follow a daily routine.

    Whether you are a traveler or not, her philosophy is to “Live Life like a Tourist!” No matter where you are. By this, she means to explore new activities, attend a variety of events, or tantalize your taste buds with a new delicacy. Each place is unique. For instance, you can drive on a highway in Portland, Oregon that is parallel to snow-capped mountains, or drive alongside the aqua blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean on the waterfront in downtown Charlotte Amalie, U.S. Virgin Islands! Sit back, relax and join the journey with her.

    . . . . . . . . . .

    Africah Harrigan is a television personality who has hosted several television programs, recorded voiceovers for radio and television commercials, and has represented businesses as an on-camera spokesperson. When she is not working, she enjoys sharing her travel experiences.

    Cycling The Megalopolis of Seoul, South Korea

    in Travel

    Can’t think of a better thing to do when hanging out in a super modern city like Seoul, South Korea then to go for a bike ride. It’s a great way to see another side of life here besides the typical tourist things  like visiting temples, museums and going shopping plus it’s so up close to everyday life here.

    I actually got my idea for this ride from the latest Lonely Planet Korea guide with a few modifications to the route. Let’s call them accidental modifications.  I started out from Yeouido Park where you can rent bikes starting at 3000 won an hour, about $2.50 USD. Yeouido is considered the mecca for cycling in Seoul.

    First stop was the Mapo Bridge where there is a designated cycle path making it safe and convenient to check out the views.

    The Han River is the fourth longest river on the Korean Peninsula with a total length of almost 500km. This river was once a very large trade route with China through the Yellow Sea however due to estuary location at the borders of North and South Korea the river is no longer actively used for navigation. 

    An exit ramp from the other side of the bridge takes you to the north side of the river with great cycling paths. Keeping to the left on this path will continue your journey along the Han River. The destination for this cycle is the Seoul World Cup Stadium, built for the FIFA World Cup in 2002.

    A great view of the beautiful domed National Assembly Building across the river. the legislative branch of the South Korean national government.

    Keep riding along the path past this cliff and under the Yanghwa and Seongsan Bridges.

    Early Morning At The"Tomb Raider Temple"Ta Prohm-Angkor Ruins, Cambodia

    in Travel

    Excerpts from "Early Morning At The "Tomb Raider" Temple.

    The crowds that visit Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom and the Angkor Ruins region can be overwhelming. Over 2.3 million people visited the site in 2014 making it one of the most popular tourist attractions in all of Southeast Asia. On my last visit I spent many early mornings wandering the ruins including visits to Ta Prohm, the temple complex made famous by the 2001 film Lara Croft Tomb Raider.

    Ta Prohm was built in the late 12th and early 13th centuries in the Bayon Style which include face towers and naga carrying giant figures. Originally called Rajavihara it is located one kilometer east of Angkor Thom, the last great city of the Khmer Empire. King Jayavayerman Vll who ruled the empire oversaw construction of Ta Prohm from Angkor Thom,  where he ruled.

    Ta Prohm had been left almost in the same condition as it was found, with huge trees growing out of the structure which have literally taken over the temple, one of it’s striking features.

    Don’t forget to look on the ground as there are many relics from the temple half buried under your path. 

    Is it worth it to wake up early with all of the craziness of the crowds? Of course, it’s Angkor Wat. It’s an amazing experience. Just be prepared for a little nonsense and sometimes rudeness with that many people gathered in one spot. Don’t get me wrong I’m not trying to be a downer. Just preparing you for what’s going to happen so you can adjust your expectations accordingly. If I didn’t have proof you’d probably never believe me if I told you someone even brought a horse. Mind you this was sunset, a different crowd indeed

    Terrorism and Tea: Creating from Everything

    in Culture

    Terrorism and Tea: Creating From Everything is not a light-hearted view of the terrible attacks on civilians around the world. Rather, it proves that creating from everything is a leader's responsibility. 

    I wanted a radio program sharing the impact of a terror attack in a tourist area of Turkey in juxtaposition to leadership. I knew that Coaches Training Institute's Helen House and the Linden Tribe were in Turkey at the time. I got what I asked for and what I got was something very different than I imagined. 

    12 January 2016 a suicide attack in Istanbul's Sultanahmet Square killed 11 people; tourists and injured 14. “The softest of soft targets” writes NY Times correspondent, Andrew Jacobs in an article that I encourage the listener to read.

    It’s no longer political; it’s personal. Maybe that’s an evolution of terrorism needed to raise awareness and activation; no longer seeing terrorism as something separate from us; once it's personal, we are all in; accountable for how things play out in our world; in the world.

    My guests are Helen House, Abeer Al-Qadi and Steve Page from Dubai. What's important is their voices; they are part of Turkey’s first Co-Active leadership program with the Coaches Training Institute. As a leader for CTI, Helen House - writes, “Yesterday, there was a bomb in Istanbul. There was some hopelessness, fear, a deeper commitment to creating peace in the air. Today, we sent 21 Leadership participants into the world to put Leadership into action. They created magic and miracles! Now there is more hope, love and belief in the human spirit rippling out from Turkey.”

    This program brings a deep curiosity: how has the world changed for them and how have they changed for the world?

    When You Have a Dream--At Any Age--There is a Definite Path to Achieving It

    in Spirituality

    Why do people say, "When I retire, I will do what I want"? Why when a child says, "I want to be..." do many people want to tell them it is just a dream. We need to give children confidence to do everything possible to achieve their dreams and we need to follow our dreams when we have them; age is not a factor. We can make a difference at any age and following your dreams can be easier than you think. This is what Purpose Talk Radio guest Serena Star-Leonard has proven in her own life and has shared with many people in her books, in her travels, and in her life. on Friday, Jan. 15, noon PT/3 p.m. ET/8 p.m. in the UK.

    Serena Star-Leonard is a business coach and the best selling author of two motivational business and lifestyle books: "How to Retire in 12 Months: Turning Passion into Profit" and "How to Succeed in 12 Months: Creating a Life you Love."

    In April 2012 she and her husband John left their home and possessions to travel the world, filming documentaries of people who make a difference to their communities. Their adventures have brought them through 26 countries since then, filming in some of the remotest communities and meeting some of the most inspiring people on earth. 

    They have spent time off the tourist trail in orphanages, slums, jungles and remote highland villages, even in a brothel and a prison. Every month filming inspiring new stories of triumph of those dedicated to empowering disadvantaged communities and the conservation of animals and the environment.

    They carry their office with them and have made a lifestyle out of a passion project. In late 2015 Serena and John launched Travel Kids Club, a charity project designed to inspire a generation of socially conscious and compassionate kids who are excited about the amazing world we live in.
