Travel is my happy place!

- Lynda 'Kechy

How It All Began

My very first encounter with travel began in the Western shores of the African continent, in my country of birth - Nigeria. It is safe to say that travel is my drug. Bits and pieces of my heart are scattered all over the world. Some countries have a lion’s share, others, just a sliver. For the most part, travel is my life! As a young girl in West Africa, I had a wanderlust spirit and knew it was only a matter of time before I’d see all the Wonders of the World. My passion for travel was ignited and fueled when I became the face of a brand called - Miss Ajinomoto. Part of my duties required extensive traveling to most cities (or States) in my country to create an awareness of this brand. This was long before DSL cameras and light years before social media. Cell phones hadn’t been birth and selfies were non-existent. Polaroid cameras existed, but were few and far between. In essence, I’ve been on wings and wheels for ages and pages. Lol.

Unfortunately, early voyages, adventures, or accounts of my travels were undocumented; have been lost, or not journaled photographically. Be that as it may, they are alive and well in my memory bank, for a city never leaves you and a country never abandons you! You may forget fragments of your adventure, but you’d always remember its magical moments. It’s the reason I’ve chosen to birth this site - as a cyber journal and tribute to my life's escapades. In the same breath, have it be a tool to help others facilitate their dreams of exporing the world. On Enthusiastic Travel aka TE (Travel Enthusiast) and our partner channel, "Bloody Citizen", you’ll be privy to some of the countries I’ve been fortunate enough to see. You’ll have free access to some of my itineraries and you'll gain intel on where I stayed. In addition, I offer other recommendations on where to stay, what to do, where to eat, etc. We all agree that exploring a city for the first time can be somewhat daunting. On this site, you'll gain private access to trusted TE tour guides whom have personally guided me on my journey while exploring some of these countries. 

Furthermore, TE has a unique consulting aspect. This segment named JAM (Just Ask Me), allows you to consult 'privately' with me on any future travel plans. Get useful hints, helpful ideas, or travel know-hows at next to no cost. Visit TE's Consult Me tab for more deets (details). Finally, learn the methods to my travel madness within my blogs by subscribing to my website or my channel, Bloody Citizen. Be the first to know what country is next on my horizon. Discover how I pick and choose what countries to visit next on what I call my 'Life list'! Learn how I go about designing my amazing itineraries, and if you so desire, use JAM's services to spear-head your very next adventure. In very rare, but special cases, YOU CAN OPT TO TRAVEL WITH ME. According to Saint Augustine, “the world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page”. I hope you are encouraged to battle the disease of ‘waiting’ and to find within you, the gusto to “just go!” The world is truly a remarkable place, and it waits FOR YOU.
