Jessica Pociask gave a thought-provoking presentation to the Elk Rapids Rotary Club about the evolution of travel and its progression from fulfilling basic needs (hunting and gathering) to today where travel is about transcendence - learning and giving back. In addition to her talk, on behalf of WANT Expeditions, Jessica donated a copy of 'Antarctic; Through a Photographer's Eyes'to the Elk Rapids Public Library through the Rotary.

An amazing thank you goes out to Londa H, and her daughter Keelan of Fowlerville, Michigan! After Londa's trip with us this past January to see the Mountain Gorillas of Uganda Mountain Gorillas of Uganda, Londa was so moved by the Bwindi Community Tour, that she resolved to go home and collect soccer balls for the children of the community. With an initial goal of just a couple balls, Londa and Keelan are close to collecting over 100 soccer balls that WANT Expeditions will hand out on our next trip to Uganda! Good work Londa and Keelan! Next WANT Expeditions is working to raise funds to collect over 200 soccer uniforms to distribute along with the balls.

Ghana, Togo and Benin; possibly the most dynamic and unvisited destinations on Earth! We loved our visit there and couldn't get enough of the people and places. Want to hear about it from a WANT guest? In the words of R. Dee: "I want to take a moment and thank you for a really interesting Voodoo Nations trip to Ghana, Togo and Benin. It was exactly as "advertised" and provided just the perfect out-of-the-ordinary experience for which I was looking. The advantage of traveling with WANT is that it was personalized --a small group and off the beaten path. It was an opportunity to immerse ourselves in the local culture. Our local guide in Benin seemed to know everyone and smoothed the way into our participation in ceremonies and a close look at village life. We were welcomed at every turn. Tourism in this area is relatively new, which is both an advantage and disadvantage. While some of the infrastructure was primitive (roads to villages), it was surprising that at the end of the day (literally) we were ensconced in a comfortable hotel with quality meals. There were inevitable glitches that come from traveling in lesser-known parts of the country. Jessica, our WANT guide, handled them with aplomb and humor. She treated us as guests. She was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Jessica was always on the lookout for a good photo opportunity, whether it be helping to haul fishing nets out of the Gulf of Guinea or learning where shea butter comes from. Our days were full. Clearly I enjoyed the experience. Such immersive travel in third-world countries is not for everyone, but it is what WANT promises and what I enjoyed most about traveling to West Africa -where very few other companies go. I look forward to traveling with WANT again as I know the trip will be unique and I will have lots of interesting, unusual stories to tell. ...I am pleased to provide positive feedback about the trip. Feel free to use me as a reference as well. You are welcome to provide my email address to anyone who has questions that I might be able to answer. As mentioned, I am very interested in the MSU Galapagos trip too.

Ghana report from the field. Here is what WANT guest, Lourdes M. had to say: "First full day in Africa. As always Jessica Pociask and WANT Expeditions deliver tons more than you expect. From helping the fishermen pull in the catch to joining amazing African dance troupe at the end ... Not to mention Mark having a beer with crocodile .... Even castle with it's dark history of slavery was an experience.... Reminded me of how I felt at Auschwitz." And its only day two! Voodoo Nations 2012 will be open soon, so get ready folks, this place is incredible!
