About Travel with a Pen

Sharing is Caring! Spread the Love :)

Hi there!

I’m Amarachi, a systems engineer by day and super hero writer by night. I love to travel although I don’t quite enjoy the actual process of it. Especially travel by air.

I started this blog to show people (especially Nigerians) how rewarding it can be to travel both locally and internationally. To be honest though, it’s not all fun and games. For international travel, we need a visa to almost every country in the world and the application process can be very tedious and discouraging.

Even after several stamps on my passport, I still bite my nails in anticipation for my visa when applying to a new country. But it’s all worth it in the end. The journey and experiences are absolutely priceless!

Anyway, I hope that by reading the articles on this blog, you’re inspired to travel more and differently too.

Here’s a little more about me and my living list
