Every trip has a story!!!

55 countries and counting! I want to be like her when I grow up.
Although, she is not a Nigerian-American, she is from a similar culture.  She demonstrates that you don’t have to be rich to travel. When traveling is a priority, you can make it happen 🙂

Oh, she has been to Nigeria 🙂 🙂
May the travel gods always be with you guapa. Enjoy her first post.



Many of my friends have encouraged me/instigated/begged me (maybe not so much!) to write about my travels and adventures. To be honest, I’ve long been hesitant to do so for three reasons 1) my fear of being seen as standoffish, 2) I’ve always thought that I’m not the best writer (maybe because I was teased from early days for English not being my native language!), and 3) I’m not really a funny person and I think to be a good blogger you have to have a decent sense of humor : (.

Nonetheless, despite all these thoughts and hesitations I think -at the very least for my own memory- it’s worth writing and reflecting about some of my adventures. My natural super organized impulse is trying to figure out a logical way to arrange the travels that I’ve taken, but I can’t seem to come up with creative ways…

About The Adventures of a Nigerian-American

I love to experience new cultures and explore the world. My family calls me ‘Ajala the Traveler’. Ajala is a Nigerian who lived in the 1950s. It is said that Ajala loved to travel and has visited all the countries in the world. Several legend and myths have been woven around his personality and travels. It is also claimed he traveled using a scooter, a truck and on foot. He rose to fame when a song was written in his honor by a Nigerian musician. The song begins “Ajala travels all over the world…” Well, am not Ajala nor have I traveled as much as he did but I do LOVE to travel. At every opportunity I get, I never hesitate to hop on a plane or international bus. As of June 2022, I have been to 71 countries . When I'm not traveling, I teach, go on long walks and read a book.
