[LISTEN] 'You meet a different side of yourself when you are travelling'

Leaving her career as an entertainment journalist, author Lerato Mogoatlhe's plan was to live in West Africa for three months but she ended up wandering from place to place without a home or a job for five years simply to travel across Africa.

Mogoatlhe has captured her journey in a memoir called Vagabond: Travelling Through Africa on Faith.

She sat down with Azania Mosaka in studio to share more about her story.
