I (or, I should say, my parents) got my first passport when I was in elementary school, when my immediate family first went to Nigeria to visit relatives and see where my parents grew up.  My next passport made its appearance shortly after my 18th birthday.  A combination of a college scholarship and wanderlust led me to study, work, and volunteer abroad in Central America, Europe, the Caribbean, South America, and even Antarctica.  After finishing law school and taking the bar exam, I took off on a two-month solo backpacking trip to my last two continents: Asia and Australia.  Since then, I have obtained a Nigerian passport (to revisit my dad’s hometown) and a new U.S. passport (as, alas, my previous, well-worn U.S. passport expired).  On my current U.S. passport, my first stops were Morocco (where I got to ride a camel and stay overnight in the Sahara, pictured to the left) and Portugal.  My most recent trip included safari in Kenya and Tanzania, a beach break in Zanzibar, and backpacking in South Africa.  Basically, I love to travel, and I HAVE to get out of the U.S. at least once a year, so my passports are amongst my prized possessions.  I am always looking for my next adventure (Papua New Guinea?  Ethiopia?  India?), so please feel free to make suggestions.  In the meantime, you can read the blog to hear about my latest trips and trip plans!
