Author Bio

Johny Africa Profile Picture Johnny AfricaCanada FlagCanada

I’m a dual Canadian-American who moved out of my comfortable life in Manhattan to move abroad and travel the world. I’m a bit obsessed with scuba diving, churning credit cards so I never pay to fly, and eating the most questionable of foods in the most peculiar of places. My bucket list is the world, and some day I might make it there.
