As a lover of live music, I was very excited to learn of an international music festival in nearby Swaziland. And, what's more, it was also a nonprofit fundraiser to help at-risk youth. Bonus. So we traveled there (and to Durban, SA) on what I called my "birthday trip" to hear some of the best artists from France, Spain, Zimbabwe, South Africa, and beyond. How amazing. "Hello Bushfire! Bring your fire!"
