Hello and welcome to My Breaking Views. My name is Adebola,  a country bumpkin from Swindon that now lives in London. I was recently announced as one of Tomorrows Travel Leader of 2020 and I absolutely love travelling. 

Travelling has always given me a sense of escape; an escape from reality and some time to recharge and reflect. When I’m away, I’m not fulfilling expectations. I am living for myself; I am running into the sea; I am going paragliding, and I am living for me and no one else. 

People don’t realise that they often make heat-of-the-moment decisions based on situations they are in and that different—sometimes better– choices could be made if they took a step back. I have become stronger as a traveller; in the end, I have become My Breaking Views.

With My Breaking Views, I want to share not only my travels and dishes from around the world. I hope to take my audience through a journey when cooking with me where they can learn tips of a country.

I’ m also 1/2 of Black Travel Creators: a community for black bloggers, YouTubers and Podcasters. It’s a platform built for travel creators to connect, share stories while networking with brands and other travellers. 

With this space, I hope to create events, travels and more. Check us out on Instagram and Twitter @BTravelCreators 

Hopefully, My Breaking Views will encourage you to escape your comfort zone and taste foods from around the world.  I hope the new lifestyle feature of this blog will push you to create your own rules and expectations for your own life and show you that we are all trying to live our lives in this world.

 This is me: #MyBreakingViews and #BTravelCreators. 

I'm excited to announce that @btravelcreators will be holding a food and travel chat over at Twitter in less than 15 mins! ⁣⁣

What's your favourite rice dish? #RiceUpYourLife

I would like to thank you all for engaging with me on my Italian posts this week. ❤⁣

I will be writing about my little birthday get away... ⁣

In the meantime is there anything you would like to hear about Italy,Rome 🇮🇹

Tiramisu is one if the most widely known and loved desserts in the world. ARE you a Tiramisu lover? ⁣

Yes 👍 or no 👎⁣

I think it depends on the mood for me. When in Italy Tiramisu is a absolute must. ⁣

What would you have on your pizza? 🍕 ⁣

Psst. I will be sharing another #FoodTravelGames later so stay tuned. It's for the wine lovers 🍷😅😂

How much is too much Icecream? 🍦🤔 ⁣

P.S. Over the weekend I will be announcing what we will be cooking in #CookingTravelTalks Season 2 🥳

Do you know that the Trevi Fountain is one of the oldest water sources in Rome? ⁣

Me neither.⁣

The fountain dates all the way back to ancient Roman times. The construction of the Aqua Virgo Aqueduct in 19 B.C. which provided water to the Roman baths and the fountains of central Rome! ⁣

We visited the Trevi Fountain on our last day and it was absolute bliss! I also learnt the reason behind the three coins 𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐨 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐓𝐫𝐞𝐯𝐢 𝐟𝐨𝐮𝐧𝐭𝐚𝐢𝐧. ⁣

Apparently if you throw a coin into the fountain....⁣

• The first coin guarantees your return to Rome 🇮🇹
• The second will ensure a new romance ❤ and,⁣
• The third will ensure the marriage💍. ⁣

What do you think?

Can't go to Italy and not get some gelato?🍨🇮🇹 ...

I want to see more Black women smiling, glowing, laughing and seeing the world. ⁣

There is something powerful about Black women coming together and developing a sisterhood. I hope I can continue to do this. ⁣

Name a country that you have enjoyed with your sisters/friends and why ⬇️⁣


Aperol Spritz is an Italian wine-based cocktail and tastes delicious 😋 😍⁣

Can't go to Italy and not get yourself an Aperol Spritz, right? 🍹⁣

Raise your ✋ if you've tried this before ⬇️

I want to thank God for allowing me to witness another year of age. Today I woke up in Italy, Rome 🇮🇹 - another year celebrating my birthday in another country. ⁣

Witnessing a new year is truly a blessing and I can only give thanks to God. 🙏⁣
