Welcome to Alajode

Every time you travel, you have a choice: do you want to have a negative or positive impact on the places, people and cultures you encounter?

If you chose the latter, this travel blog is for you!

Alajode is a travel blog for conscious travellers. Enjoying the planet is a wonderful experience, but it’s important to protect it too. That’s why you’ll find plenty of ethical wildlife encounters and unique ecotourism destinations to explore on this blog, along with plenty of unique places and transformative travel experiences.

As a photographer, I also share plenty of travel photography tips and diaries, as well as sprinkling my travel posts with my favourite images.

I hope this travel blog will encourage you to step out of your comfort zone, have more meaningful travel experiences and travel as consciously as possible.

Travel better

Travel can have devastating effects on the people, places and cultures we visit – but it doesn’t have to be that way.

Alajode is a travel blog that encourages you to travel responsibly. It is possible for travel to have a positive impact on the environment, communities and individuals you encounter.

It can also have a positive impact on you, the traveller – which is why you’ll also find plenty of transformative travel stories here, too.

With my ‘travel better’ blog posts, I’ll help you travel consciously and ethically, having more meaningful experiences along the way.
