The island of Sao Tomé is a gem in the Gulf of Guinea. Once a portuguese colony it is independent since the year 1974. I had the possibility of travelling broken country roads, hiking through impressive tropical rainforest and sleeping in remote lodges. Every single drop of sweat was worth it and pictures will be shown in renown tavel magazine “abenteuer und reisen”, voted best german travel magazine, soon. 1.-9.5.2019.
