La Maison des Esclaves (House of Slaves)
The House of Slaves and its Door of No Return is a museum and memorial to the Atlantic slave trade on Gorée Island, a small 45-acre island located 3 km off the coast of the city of Dakar, Senegal. Goree Island was developed as a center of the expanding European slave trade and played an important part in the early days of African American history. The first record of slave trading there dates back to 1536 and was conducted by Portuguese, the first Europeans to set foot on the Island in 1444. The house of slaves was built by the Dutch in 1776. It is the last slave house still standing in Goree and now serves as a museum. The island is considered as a memorial to the Black Diaspora.
Location: Dakar, Senegal

What's a honeymoon registry?
Wanderable is a new and unique honeymoon registry that allows wedding guests to gift
meaningful and memorable experiences to a newlywed couple.
Similar to a traditional registry where the couple registers for gifts,
couples will create a Wanderable registry website where guests can choose a thoughtful
experience to give based on their unique relationship with the couple.
Couples who choose Wanderable want a beautiful experience to help begin their journey together.
A marriage is about the experience of life and the journey you are just beginning together.
Wanderable believes that this is at the core of marriage. And the only way to help a
couple celebrate this is to provide a meaningful wedding gift of one of the first experiences
of this journey together.
Wanderable helps couples get started on their journey by providing a unique way for
guests to give more than a thing, but a gift of a new life experience the couple can share.
We believe that experiences can be made into memorable gifts, that feel as real as receiving
any other gift you can unwrap.
