If you want a truly unique holiday that will introduce you to a different way of life then you might want to follow in the footsteps of one travel writer.
Gill Charlton headed off on a walking trip in Ethiopia and discovered beautiful landscapes and welcoming as well as friendly communities.
As far as adventure travel goes, there's nothing better than visiting countries that few other people have had the privilege to see and Ethiopia certainly falls into this category.
Ms Charlton wrote for The National that in northern Wollo, there is one community project set up by Tourism in Ethiopia for Sustainable Future Alternatives (Tesfa) that "rewards visitors with a taste of the fascinating local culture".
She went on a trek to visit some of the remote villages in the region and was rewarded with stunning views across valleys, good food and wonderful hospitality.
Other travellers who have gone on treks organised under the Tesfa project have praised the breaks, describing them as "amazing", "beautiful" and "beyond expectations".
