I wish I had more time to explore Togo than I did. The truth is that the country was the result of a travel hangover. I spent more time than I’m happy to admit curled up in bed suffering from a serious case of Malaria that I picked up in Ghana and brought with me. That being said, what I did manage to see of Togo, of the coast of Togo anyways, was actually quite nice. The beaches are massive and, although they are a little dirty, they are stunning. Lome is a fairly vibrant city home to some great beach bars and loads of maquis. You probably won’t be blown away by Togo, but the changes are that you’ll enjoy the laid-back feel of this west African country.
