The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me!

Dear dreamer, book_lover, reader, traveler and digital wanderer, you’ve finally arrived! You’ve just entered a happy virtual home where everything is about travels, dreams, love, minimalism, coffee, books and stories of course. I’m very glad you are here and welcome to my happy place!

        WHO AM I?

I’m Aurore Anne Chehoke – A Dreamer, Rebel and storyteller.
(BlackCityGirl)

That actually isn’t my real name, but it’s the name I Choose to use when I wear the clothes of the traveller, the writer, the photographer, the adventurer and the storyteller.

I’m a wannabe creative digital nomad with a soul and a heart first and foremost. This blog has been a long time coming… I’ve been letting fear of the unknown and uncertainty, get the better of me but no more. So here we go…

I am a bit of a rebel and a drama queen who has finally decided to listen to her heart for once. On a journey to become a full-time freelance photographer, writer and social media strategist, book reviewer, content creator and an all round BLOGGER.😊

W O R D S have been my best friend since I was very little. Born and bred in a small African village and Currently resides in a BIG CITY and a FOREIGN COUNTRY.

I have always been into PHOTOGRAPHY. I remember although my years in the University, and even way before that, I always was the TRUSTED friend who takes the BEST Photos. 😊 I have done a few photography and editing courses.

BOOKS and my love for reading 📖 have always been my biggest companion since childhood and my favorite thing to do.

WHAT IS THIS ALL ABOUT?

I’m here to share my S T O R I E S and the stories of the people I encounter; I want to tell you about my journey as a YOUNG BLACK GIRL from a small African village making a living in a BIG CITY totally different from what she is used to, My experiences, findings and in leading a creative, freelancer and nomadic lifestyle. As you probably already guessed, this is not simply a travel blog like other millions out there. I’m not going to tell you how cool life on the road is, you know that already. I am not going to tell you “top 10/100/1000 things” you need to see or visit in a city or a country, or how many countries I’m hoping to ticked off on my bucket list, there are so many lists alike out there already.

My intent is different: I hope to I N S P I R E you to travel more, to live, to READ more, to do and ultimately be more by pushing your limits and giving a chance to your dreams and yourself.

I’m on a mission to convince you to make your life R E M A R K A B L E.
Basically, this is a slow Book, lifestyle & travel blog (and memoir) that explores ways to simplify your life, cultivate your passions and spent more time doing what you really love.

So Please Stick with me on this journey… let’s see the world together.🙏🏻
