Ask Me Anything about travelling to Ghana

My name is Xorlali, and I’m from a small town in Anyako, Ghana! I’m 21 years old and live in Tema Ghana.

I enjoy the simple things in life- nature, delicious food, groovy music, and good times with good people. But blogging is my heart, my soul, my passion, and perhaps the love of my life. I have been so incredibly blessed to be able to read and hear as much of the world as I’ve heard. I couldn’t even imagine who I’d be without it! My goal is to inspire young people, especially youth, to read, write and travel. And that there’s no need to be worried about writing and travelling solo! To write and travel is to unlock your potential. Like I said, I have no idea who I’d be without it. Coming out of high school, I was an extremely shy and timid girl. You would have to FORCE me to say hi to any sort of stranger. Any kind of attention would make me feel incredibly uncomfortable, I wouldn’t say much, I wouldn’t smile much, I was merely existing. Writing and Travel have always been a part of my life, but it wasn’t until a trip to Boti Falls a year during Primary school that changed everything for me. Writing on this trip with my best friend, I literally had no clue what I was in for. (Xorlali.com)updates you with, entertainment , travel, etc follow me for your updates

Ghana is a ripe country for exploration, and the increase in the number of people visiting—especially solo travelers—is due to the fun, lively nature of the country, the friendliness of the people, the laid-back atmosphere, and the opportunity for great adventure in a safe environment.

Ghana also enjoys a typically tropical climate all year round, with plenty of sparkling blue skies and sunny weather to go around. Strictly speaking, there are no ‘seasons’ as such, as temperatures don’t vary a great deal throughout the year.

However, Ghana does have one or two rainy seasons depending on whether you are in the north or south of the country. Throughout the year, daytime temperatures in Ghana rarely stray far from 30°C / 86°F, averaging 32°C / 90°F between February and April, and falling to a very pleasant 27°C / 81°F in July and August.

Ghana has a tropical climate with warm to hot weather. Coastal areas are humid, while the north is savanna-like. April to June is the main rainy season. Ghana a year-round destination, but July toAugust and December to January are peak travel seasons. Throughout the year, there are many tribal festivals, with traditional dances and costumes.

The Homowo Festival (May, Greater Accra), encourages a rich harvest. Major Christian and Islamic holidays are also celebrated. Panafest (Dec, every 2 years) celebrates Pan-African history worth culture
