Travel with a Pen exists to show travel enthusiasts (especially Nigerians) how rewarding it can be to travel both locally and internationally. On this blog, I share budget-friendly tips and breakdowns for travel within Nigeria, West Africa, Africa and the rest of the world. I hope that by reading the articles here, you’re inspired to travel more and differently too.

    I have been following your blog early last year January, but I am low key reader, so this year I decided kick my travel plans, firstly I want to appreciate you for responding to me on Instagram with handle @_eddybaba I never expected the reply but boom I saw it. So this year my first trip is Togo, Rwanda & Ethiopia. Amarachi God bless you. I want to be fact of your travel term. My dream coming through

    • Thank you, Emmanuel. It’s great to connect with you. I also plan and hope to visit Rwanda this year. We’ll see how that goes. 🙂

  5. I love your blog! I learned so much. Thank you for the information ❤️

  6. So lovely reading your story, and you’ve been to quite a few places and done things which are still just distant future items on my bucket list. Local travel is very rewarding so I’m glad you write about your local adventures too. I think too many travel bloggers get caught up with only showcasing far distant lands when tourists are visiting and appreciating the country which is right under their noses. It’s nice learning more about Nigeria through you. Take care, and visit Jamaica soon if you can! 🙂

    • Thanks, Rochelle. I agree with more travellers and bloggers showcasing their home countries. I hope I can visit Jamaica soon. Definitely going to explore beyond the resorts 🙂

  7. Hi Amarachi, you’re doing a good job, thanks for your write up, very interesting God bless.

  8. Wonderful stuff.

  9. I love your blog, would love to explore West Africa for a start. How do I begin?

  10. What a nice blog I’d just discovered. I’m so impressed and inspired by this blog. Looking forth to my own adventure.

    • It’s great to have you here, Grace. Thanks for all your comments! I’m looking forward to hearing about adventures soon as well, starting with Ghana.

    Hey Amarachi,
    Hope this email finds you well.
    My name is Uju, I contacted you on Instagram with the handle @Iamsomadina.
    I came across your blog and I was very inspired by the content.
    I wanted to know what you went through to get your blog started off.
    I would like to start one, however I don’t want to follow the blogspot route.
    I was wondering if you could please offer some tips on how you started from layout, to domain name, to design, to payment/fees and content creation as well.
    As someone who is an avid dreamer, you are one of the few Nigerians I have come across that has inspired me to be a doer in the travel/adventurer lane.
    Fingers crossed I start to travel more this year.

    Thanks for responding on Instagram, you didn’t have to, but you did, thank you.

    • Hey Uju, thanks for your message. I’ve sent you a response via email, I hope it helps.

      • Hi. Can you share details about you started your blog as well. I’m a fellow outdoors enthusiast and photographer from Kenya and would also like to start a blog. I like the way your blog design sits.Thanks

      • Hi Milind, there are no real details to share about how I started my blog (in terms of actually writing and posting) but if you’re looking to start something, then just go ahead and do it. You would need a (domain) name, website/hosting provider or you can start with a free service too. The rest is just you posting and promoting your work.

        If you would like a one-on-one session with me where I put you through the fundamentals of travel blogging and all you need to get started, you may consider this service:

    • Hi, Obianuju(my namesake actually),

      I am interested in travelling and visiting places too.

      We can connect and start out together.
