ABOUT ME

Hey there!

My name is Darowan and in September of 2019, I quit my job, sold everything I owned, to travel the world. In other words, I took a grown-up gap year.

It all started in the Summer of 2016 when I was introduced to solo traveling by a dear friend and after my first trip, I was hooked. After three years of  making several intentional decisions, researching, and a bit of planning, I finally took a leap of faith to embark on this crazy adventure.

Random facts about me:

  • I was born and raised in Nigeria, and moved to New York, shortly before I turned 21 years old.
  • I have practiced as a Clinical Pharmacist in the US for about a decade.
  • I am an extroverted introvert – Google it
  • When it comes to traveling, I am a poor planner, but I always plan to be spontaneous!
  • As of September 2019, I have visited 15 countries, 4 continents, and lived in two.
  • I am naturally curious and I ask a lot of questions!
  • I am terrible with directions and I would be on Mars without google maps.
