Local Flavour: People in Pictures


Local flavour means a number of things to us at Untravelled Paths – delicious cuisine, tradition, and culture but above everything else, it’s about the local people. Of all our collection of locations and experiences we offer, there are three destinations in particular that have an abundance of local flavour and fascinating, beautifully unique people – Morocco, Romania, and Ethiopia.

Here are some of the best pictures we have taken on our research trips. Let us know which you think is the best in the comments section!
