Kunbi - The Adventures of a Nigerian-American KunbiNigeria FlagNigeria

At every opportunity I get, I never hesitate to hop on a plane or international bus. As of Nov 2023, I have visited 71 UN countries. My first travel was in 2001 to the USA, it was a family trip and we visited Atlanta and Los Angeles. In 2008, I went on my first solo travel and I had a blast. Since then solo travel has been my preferred way to explore new destinations. Why do I love to travel? I can not give a concise answer to this. All I know is that I get this sense of inner peace whenever I visit a country or experience a new culture. I’ve met a lot of amazing people during my travels.
