MBV is back online! It’s been nearly two years! That is way too long! How have you been MyBreakingViewers? I am so sorry it has been so long 🙁
The last two years have been focused on my master’s in Global Diplomacy at the School of Oriental African Studies (SOAS)! It has always been a dream of mine to do my master’s, and I am even more grateful that I did this at SOAS. Now that I have finished, I can focus on sharing my travel journals, guides and foodie tips!
If you’ve been following me on my new Instagram. You will know that I re-started my IG page for a fresh start, especially after the trolls from the situation in Greece – read about it here.
MBV is back online!
MBV is back online. Yes, I am entirely back up and running, and believe me when I say I am here for good this time! I have been working hard, and so many things are coming to you this year. The focus has been travel, but now I want to share my views and tips and challenge the perceptions of food while travelling.
While I was away
Although I was working full-time and studying part-time, I still managed to find time to travel the world (don’t worry, I will share how I did this now that I am back).
Despite the COVID-19 restrictions, I still travelled. I visited around 9 countries last year, many unplanned and some delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The countries I visited in the last two years:
March 2022 Jordan
This was my first time visiting the Middle East, and I absolutely loved it! The rich history, hospitality and food were truly unique. I enjoyed tasting the falafel, the hummus was the best I have ever tasted, and the shawarma was rich in juices and flavour.
I enjoyed the food so much that I returned home and cooked the dishes on my Cooking Travel Talks live relaunch. I went with GoJolley, the best travel group I advise you to travel with – especially if you want a smooth process.
May 2022 France, Paris
I’ve been to Paris many times, but every time I go, it’s a new experience. If you are based in the UK, you only need 3 days max in Paris because, honestly, if you go once, you will go again and again. It was the first time I tried escargots – French snails, and it was truly yummy. We need to do a Taste of France – what do you think?
August 2022 Turkey
I was a bit nervous about travelling to Turkey because of what I heard about Black women’s experience and because it’s next door to Greece, but I loved Turkey. The food was also delicious, and the people were lovely to me.
Septemeber 2022 Italy
Like France, I have been to Italy several times, but it was my first time in Pisa and Florence. Florence is my favourite city in Italy. We also did a Cooking Travel Talks live for Italy, which you can find here.
October 2022 West Africa
I travelled to Nigeria, The Gambia and Senegal in October. My dream has always been to travel to Africa, and my goals are close to becoming increasingly real every day. We did a Cooking Travel Talks Live for all three. I did The Gambia and Senegal with Ajala Travels.
MyBreakingViewers, if you would like to read about a specific country sooner rather than later, let me know I will focus my guides on what you want. I will post in real-time (after the trip), so subscribe and follow for more.
I can’t tell you how happy I am to be back here! Speak soon.
