  • Congrats to How Ridiculous on setting the world record here for the highest basketball shot. You guys are amazing.
  • Scenery out of this world in Lesotho🇱🇸 The friendly people will welcome you with open arms😊
  • It was truly magical, with friendly local kids on horses with limited English greeted us on arrival. And no other visitors.
  • Come in summer and feel nature at its best
