TRAVEL TO GUINEA-BISSAU // BUBAQUE ISLAND // BIJAGOS 2018

TRAVEL TO GUINEA-BISSAU-(BUBAQUE ISLAND)-(BIJAGOS ARCHIPELAGO) (2018)



We got to Guinea-Bissau the night before, and early in the morning we set off on the boat of 10:00 o'clock in the morning to the island of Bubaque in the archipelagos of Bijagos. Bubaque is one of The Bijagós Islands in Guinea-Bissau, and is also the name of its main town.
Attention that the boat does not have a right time, has no daily connection, and the trip takes 4 hours.
The arrival at the port was very orderly, as the population began to wait for passengers off the platform.
The island is a charm, with dense vegetation, very cashew, and fantastic beaches. The beach of Bruce is very worthwhile, as well as the beach of Escadinhas on leaving the main village.
It's really worth spending a few days in Bubaque, you eat well in the Spanish restaurant, it's quiet and people are very kind

Guinea-Bissau, officially the Republic of Guinea-Bissau Listeni/ˈɡɪni bɪˈsaʊ/, gi-nee-bi-sow, (Portuguese: República da Guiné-Bissau, pronounced: [ʁeˈpublikɐ dɐ ɡiˈnɛ biˈsaw]), is a country in West Africa. It is bordered by Senegal to the north and Guinea to the south and east, with the Atlantic Ocean to its west. It covers 36,125 km² (nearly 14,000 sq mi) with an estimated population of 1,600,000.

Guinea-Bissau was once part of the kingdom of Gabu, as well as part of the Mali Empire. Parts of this kingdom persisted until the 18th century, while a few others were under some rule by the Portuguese Empire since the 16th century. In the 19th century, it was colonized as Portuguese Guinea. Upon independence, declared in 1973 and recognised in 1974, the name of its capital, Bissau, was added to the country's name to prevent confusion with Guinea (formerly French Guinea). Guinea-Bissau has a history of political instability since independence, and no elected president has successfully served a full five-year term.

On the evening of 12 April 2012, members of the country's military staged a coup d'état and arrested the interim president and a leading presidential candidate. Former vice chief of staff, General Mamadu Ture Kuruma, assumed control of the country in the transitional period and started negotiations with opposition parties.

Only 14% of the population speaks Portuguese, established as the official language in the colonial period. Almost half the population (44%) speaks Crioulo, a Portuguese-based creole language, and the remainder speak a variety of native African languages. The main religions are African traditional religions and Islam; there is a Christian (mostly Roman Catholic) minority. The country's per-capita gross domestic product is one of the lowest in the world.

Guinea-Bissau is a member of the African Union, Economic Community of West African States, Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, the Latin Union, Community of Portuguese Language Countries, La Francophonie and the South Atlantic Peace and Cooperation Zone.

Guinea-Bissau was once part of the kingdom of Gabu, part of the Mali Empire; parts of this kingdom persisted until the 18th century. Other parts of the territory in the current country were considered by the Portuguese as part of their empire.[8] Portuguese Guinea was known as the Slave Coast, as it was a major area for the exportation of African slaves by Europeans to the western hemisphere. Previously slaves had been traded by Arabs north to the northern part of Africa and into the Middle East.

Early reports of Europeans reaching this area include those of the Venetian Alvise Cadamosto's voyage of 1455, the 1479–1480 voyage by Flemish-French trader Eustache de la Fosse, and Diogo Cão. In the 1480s this Portuguese explorer reached the Congo River and the lands of Bakongo, setting up the foundations of modern Angola, some 4200 km down the African coast from Guinea-Bissau.

Although the rivers and coast of this area were among the first places colonized by the Portuguese, who set up trading posts in the 16th century, they did not explore the interior until the 19th century. The local African rulers in Guinea, some of whom prospered greatly from the slave trade, controlled the inland trade and did not allow the Europeans into the interior. They kept them in the fortified coastal settlements where the trading took place. African communities that fought back against slave traders also distrusted European adventurers and would-be settlers. The Portuguese in Guinea were largely restricted to the port of Bissau and Cacheu. Some few, independent European farmer-settlers established isolated farms along Bissau's inland rivers.

For a brief period in the 1790s, the British tried to establish a rival foothold on an offshore island, at Bolama. But by the 19th century the Portuguese were sufficiently secure in Bissau to regard the neighbouring coastline as their own special territory, also up north in part of present South Senegal.

12 Things You'll Want To Experience | Bougainville, Papua New Guinea

I arrived in the Autonomous Region of Bougainville, Papua New Guinea in November 2016 for a one-year stint. I have just extended to stay another 6-months. These are just a few of the things that have made me want to stay for every extra day that I can...

12 THINGS YOU'LL WANT TO EXPERIENCE | BOUGAINVILLE, PAPUA NEW GUINEA

1) Long weekend on Pokpok Island near Arawa. Book by emailing them directly: urunabayretreat@gmail.com

2) Getting to mingle with locals. Always a pleasure no matter where in the world you are.

3) Trekking and exploring around Sisivi with Rotokas Ecotourism. Organised directly with Rotokas Ecotourism.

4) Day trips island hopping in a banana boat. This can arranged through locals, Bougainville Experience Tours or direct with banana boat drivers in some cases.

5) Experiencing a traditional sing sing. Talk with locals, volunteers and expats, regularly check online including Facebook groups and keep your eyes peeled for posters around Buka, Arawa or Buin for any advertisements about sing sing festivals. They are often not well promoted.

6) Hiking to the volcanic crater Lake Eruovi / Billy Mitchell near Wakanui. Organised directly with Rotokas Ecotourism.

7) Playing games on the beach. The pikininis love to play football, rugby and volleyball, as do I, so everyone is happy!

8) Swimming and snorkeling at Loloho Beach near Arawa. Luckily there was already a relationship established with the chief, which I happily continued, which allowed me to use the beach. I suggest talking to locals and who'll no doubt meet someone who knows someone with access to a beach.

9) Dancing to a bamboo band. I could watch these play for hours and have done so! Again, keep your eyes to the ground for potential performances and also be ready for those fantastic spontaneous ones too!

10) Exploring beyond Buka Town to see the many sides of Buka Island. I have chatted with people who've explored the island by bicycle, however I had the opportunity to do so by 4x4 in exchange for taking some photographs. A private hire or local with a vehicle is also a good bet.

11) Local friends offering to show you around their villages. I always jump at the opportunity and find it fascinating to see the off the beaten track villages, which you'd never see otherwise. If someone offers, say yes!

12) Watching the sunrise from Premier Hill overlooking Kieta near Arawa. It really is the perfect spot to start the day and easily accessible by bicycle from Arawa or vehicle.

Niokolo-Koba National Park, Senegal

Senegambia Bissau Tours takes you on a trip from the Gambia to Senegal, to visit the country's number one wild animal park. As is usually the case, getting to see the elephants, lions and leopards was an almost impossible task. February/March is the best time for sightings. We did see a hyena though, which walked right up to the hotel's restaurant. Unfortunately, no one had a camera with them.

Portugal, officially the Portuguese Republic (Portuguese: República Portuguesa), is a unitary semi-presidential republic. It is located in South-Western Europe, on the Iberian Peninsula, and it is the westernmost country of mainland Europe, being bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the west and south and by Spain to the north and east. Aside from continental Portugal, the Portuguese Republic holds sovereignty over the Atlantic archipelagos of Azores and Madeira, which are autonomous regions of Portugal. The country is named after its second largest city, Porto, whose Latin name was Portus Cale.[12]
The land within the borders of the current Portuguese Republic has been continually fought over and settled since prehistoric times. After a period of Roman rule followed by Visigothic and Suebian domination, in the 8th century most of the Iberian Peninsula was conquered by Moorish invaders. During the Catholic Church oriented Reconquista, Portugal established itself as an independent kingdom from Galicia in 1139.[13] In the 15th and 16th centuries, as the result of pioneering the Age of Discovery, Portugal expanded western influence and established the first global empire,[14] becoming one of the world's major economic, political and military powers, and ultimately dividing the world with Spain.
The Portuguese Empire was the longest-lived of the modern European colonial empires, spanning almost 600 years, from the capture of Ceuta in 1415 to the handover of Macau to China in 1999 (de facto) or the granting of sovereignty to East Timor in 2002 (de jure). The empire spread throughout a vast number of territories that are now part of 53 different sovereign states, leaving a legacy of over 240 million Portuguese speakers today (making it the sixth most spoken first language) and a number of Portuguese-based creoles. Portugal's international status was greatly reduced during the 19th century, especially following the Independence of Brazil, its largest colony. After the 1910 revolution deposed the monarchy, the democratic but unstable Portuguese First Republic was established, itself being superseded by the Estado Novo right-wing authoritarian regime. Democracy was restored after the Portuguese Colonial War and the Carnation Revolution in 1974. The revolution in 1974 also resulted in the independence of Angola, Mozambique, São Tomé and Príncipe, Timor-Leste, Cape Verde and Guinea-Bissau in 1975.
Portugal is considered a developed country with an advanced economy and high living standards, listed with the nineteenth-highest quality of life index rating in the world as of 2005. It's one of the world's most globalized and peaceful nations.[15] It is a member of the United Nations, European Union, Eurozone, OECD, NATO, WTO, Schengen Area, and the Community of Portuguese Language Countries. On 31 May 2010, Portugal became the sixth country in Europe and the eighth country in the world to legally recognize same-sex marriage on the national level. The law came into force on 5 June 2010.
