I'm working and living in Ethiopia since several years. In my free time I love to cruise the country. This experience I will share here in Wikitravel. Additionally to this project I'm contributing to OpenStreetMap . Therefore all I'm describing in here is backed up with maps. Beneath common attractions I will focus on small destinations for people who have a bit more time and want to discover the country beyond the touristic attractions.
Personal Travel Tips
- never give money to children or people - it spoils them a lot
- carry all the time something to give for people or children in special situations (special doesn't mean: hello I'm poor give money). For example I carry a photo printer (like my polaroid ) usually with me which allows to print pictures directly
- also pens and water bottles are doing a great job depending on the region and situation
- take a GPS all the time with you - you can geotag your photos - find the way out of hell alone - and the best thing is you can share the paths on OSM with others
