There are a lot of countries in the world that most of us have never heard about and although it’s not good for those countries economy, It’s a great news for adventurous travelers.

Comoros, an island country is made of three islands. It’s considered as an African country.

Recent history of Comoros

Comoros is (Probably) the only African island that was discovered by Africans who started living there and start a country. In recent history, it was colonized by France (Like most other African countries) but when it came to independence, one of the islands called Mayotte, voted against it and remained as a French territory while they formed a country.

After a few years, Anjouan, one of the three islands decided to join France, like their cousin, Mayotte which got rejected by the French government and eventually with UN’s help, they remained as a part of Comoros with more power over their island.

After becoming a country, they struggled financially almost always and if it wasn’t for France’s aid and money, they were in a worse position by now.

  1. I want to go there!! Are the flights from France any cheaper. I’m in France a lot and I lived there for 10 year but I didn’t hear anybody talk about Comoros. Love you photos. The beach looks amazing,

    1. It is quite interesting! Even though the flight ticket is somewhat pricey, the country itself is very affordable and people are very friendly!

      By the way, are you going to get on the road anytime soon? I gave up the idea of traveling until 2021. It’s probably kinda annoying with this virus!
