Couple pics from when I was in south central Tanzania. $15k fine if you hit an elephant. It's legal to eat roadkills in California, just FYI 😂 #travelpic #worldwide #worldtravel #inspired #travel #travelnow #sunrise #travelholic #traveltime #igtravel #journey #globetrotter #solotravel #photography #backpackerlife #wanderlust #instago #motivation #nature #africa #elephant #tanzania #wildlife

The world's largest lava lake at Mount Nyiragongo in DR Congo. I uploaded two phone pics in mid July. These were taken by Rico @ar.gandy with his DSLR. I got them yesterday! If you want to see more pictures of my backpacking journey in Congo - Goma to Kinshasa by land. I have loads of them on FB.com/dingliu

One of the must see places in Africa, trust me! I'll go back in the future, without a doubt. I don't know how to describe the landscape. I hiked over to the fall 3 times, no one was around. I stared at it for hours. I was in trance. I wanted to jump off the fucking cliff fly straight into the waterfall in a wing suit, then swim upward to the top. Backflip 180 dive into the pool down below and float away to a flat surface... sunbath fully dressed.

I spent 3 weeks in Cyprus. All I wanted to do was Nothing. Not even sightseeing. Being able to shower with fresh water was absolutely luxurious vs what I have gone through in the Congo. I went directly from DRC to #Cyprus. Culture shock 💥

I went down to Cape Town from Ethiopia, then I circled back up, finished the journey in Congo (by land). Mutare is at the border of Mozambique and Zimbabwe. A nice place to visit, not as dusty and chaotic as Harare. Don't skip it when visiting Zim.

I spent 2 weeks in Tofo beach, Mozambique. Seafood for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The coconut meat was pretty thiccc. I loved it.

Some interesting under water photos from one of the best dive sites in the world - Mnemba island (aka Bill Gates island) Zanzibar in Tanzania. I don't know the names of these monsters 🤷. I borrowed a sick camera from the dive shop . #travelpic #worldwide #worldtravel #inspired #travel #travelnow #mystory #travelholic #traveltime #igtravel #journey #globetrotter #solotravel #fish #photography #backpackerlife #wanderlust #instago #motivation #nature #zanzibar #diving #padi #underwater #marinebiology

Sunset Kigoma, Tanzania. Behind me across the lake is DR Congo. According to Wikipedia: Lake Tanganyika is the world longest freshwater lake (670 km), the 2nd oldest freshwater lake, the 2nd largest by volume, the 2nd deepest (1470 meters).... And Lake Baikal in Siberia is calling ☎️🤔 2020 . #travellove #culture #worldtravel #exploring #adventure #lifestyle #diary #experience #lake #globetrotter #solotravel #backpacker #igtravel #wanderlust #travel #traveldiary #amazing #beautifulmoments #travelblog #traveldeeper #laketanganyika #tanzania

Behind me to the left is Lake Malawi. Across the lake is Mozambique. Behind me to the right is Tanzania. My luxurious campsite is on the far left at lakeside. Millions of mosquitos at dawn, they would get you through your goddamn shirt. I saw two spitting cobras on this hike. One on the way up and one on the way down. Both were standing up looking 🐍. When we walked into the 2nd one, my guide Anthony jump, turned around in mid air and ran. I was few steps behind him and did the same. Absolutely crazy!!! They said if you got bitten by a cobra, go find a tree, sit in the shade, make a phone call home; then you're done. Cya!

I was on top of the Sibebe Rock, a granite mountain in Eswatini / Swaziland. It is the second largest monolith in the world (the first is in Australia).

Traveling partner application is wide open. My 1 year multiple entry visa to Tanzania is valid until the end of March in 2020. I won't mind to go back and chill like a king. Scuba diving, eat fish for breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you want something more extreme, I'll take you to the Congo. Satisfaction guaranteed! Call me 🤔 This photo was taken at the North end of the island.

One of my favorite countries in Africa - Lesotho. Amazing landscape, mountains and warm-hearted people. I backpacked through and around the country by public transportation. It was easy, well... Compare to DR Congo 😂. I was on my way to go see the world 2nd largest single drop waterfall. I had to stop to capture this moment. It reminded me of Ushguli in Georgia. Absolutely crazy beautiful!

More pictures from the Namibian Desert. These skeletons of trees are 600–700 years old. The wood does not decompose because it is so dry.

Red sand and blue sky. The Namibian Desert is considered the world's oldest desert, at least 55 million years (according to the web). I was there with a small group of fine human beings.

I have been on the road for 1+ year, thousands of photos. Where do I start... I'll share some special moments. Here is a pic of me at the Victoria Fall Zimbabwe side. Absolutely amazing... with me in it! I wear black everyday, no surprise! I ran up and down the stairs to direct this person to capture the shot multiple times. That was a workout. #wearblack #victoriafalls #zimbabwe

I climbed on top of the lumbers and took a selfie with my @gopro. It was quite early in the morning. We were getting close to the capital Kinshasa. My left is the DRC. My right is the Republic of the Congo. The congo river is the border. The cargo barges were not so tightly packed because many have left the night before. To call them cargo barges doesn’t paint the full picture. The metal barges are pushed by what is essentially a tugboat. Sometimes the barges number as many as five; mine had three, they are more than 100 feet long each, fastened together. It was a floating village with 400-500 passengers and just two toilets.

This video was taken in the beginning of the journey, about 2 or 3 days in. I got invited to eat with the ladies/family on the other side of the barges. There was no electricity. The light was from my headlamp. I wasn't very hungry and didn't join them. Honestly tho, sometimes... this is exactly how I eat with others. I took the cargo barges from Kisangani to Kinshasa, it was a long journey - 2 weeks. Everyone cooks and showers with the 'colorful' Congo River water. People drink the river water when they run out of freshwater. I don't know how fresh is the freshwater in DRC. #travelpic #worldwide #worldtravel #inspired #travel #travelnow #mystory #travelholic #traveltime #igtravel #journey #globetrotter #solotravel #foodporn #documentary #backpackerlife #wanderlust #instago #motivation #culture #drc #rdc #congoriver #congo #dinner

Congolese chewing gum 🤔. Apparently you can eat it raw, but I didn't. They cooked it and I tried it. High protein! It tasted a bit weird which I didn't mind. Only wish I had some hot sauce. Grossed out? Naaa, it's normal in Congo.

🗡️ I was out shopping for supplies for the barge ride to Kinshasa in Kisangani. He walked by, paused and stared. I had my phone out and quickly captured the moment. I smiled and he smiled back. #drc #congo #smile #machete . . . . . #travelers #travelbug #travelholic #travelgram #travelinggram #doyoutravel #explorer #knife #travelphotography #exploring #wanderer #wanderlust #doyoutravel #goexplore #travelmore #lovetotravel #wonderfulplaces #roamtheplanet #travellifestyle #stare

It was one of the most memorable moments throughout my travels. Not because the beauty of it, it was about what I was going to do (2+ weeks / 1700 kilometers on the Congo River to the capital Kinshasa), the amount of time it actually took me to get there from Goma, and all the good and bad in between. Visa extension, Ebola fear, ongoing conflicts/war, dealing with people, handling situations with the money hungry immigration fuckers, language barrier and so on. Normally, I don't like to brag about shit, but for this particular journey, hell yeah I will. Would I do it again? I don't know. Definitely not by myself. More pictures and stories are on Facebook.com/dingliu. A short video of the journey is coming in September.
