The youngest person to participate in an Intrepid Journeys, Keisha Castle-Hughes dives braided-head first into her East African journey. Shortly after arriving at her first stop and spotting a stork "the size of a small adult", Castle-Hughes admits to a fear of birds and tries to brace herself for what's to come.
