“From Ghana With Love” is a new multimedia travel series created by Sharifah Issaka for Dust Magazine. The project aims to encourage domestic tourism and instill a love of Ghana-based travel in people who are actually from Ghana (hence the title: “From Ghana With Love”). I will not only be writing about my travel experiences in each issue of Dust Magazine (check out the latest issue online) I will also be filming them so you can see exactly what it is that you are missing out on.
