I can, by the grace of God, confidently say that there was never a moment where I felt unsafe in Ghana. Stealing was a top concern of mine when I first got there just because of stories I heard and hearing how electronic swapping was prevalent. I wanted to vlog my experience, so I needed to make sure your girl wasn’t going to get her phone snatched lol. Certain areas you don’t want to have your phones out like in busy markets and the rough areas, but for the most part you should be fine. Trust your intuition always and if something, somewhere, or someone doesn’t feel right in general, leave. You can’t enjoy anywhere if you’re not safe.
To think, I wanted Ghana to be my first African country because I heard the people were hospitable. That’s it! I knew nothing about Ghana except that I wanted to feel welcome and that it was in Africa. The people OVER EXCEEDED my expectations. I always felt welcome anywhere I went even when I didn’t open my mouth and nobody knew I was from the States. (Foreigners do get treated differently in countries sometimes.) It was so easy for me to make friends and get to know people. I literally would meet someone at 5:00pm and be out having dinner with them at 7:00pm lol. I even met people at the grocery store. You will be met with nothing but love!
