Hey there! My name is Doyin Sogbesan and to my friends and family i'm a little crazy for quitting my "9-5" job to follow my passion of documenting earth's amazing planet to you! I currently live in London, England with my mum and sister and from next month i'll be embarking on a travel documenting journey (staring with South East Asia).

The purpose of this trip is to begin a journey which I hope will develop into a full time career of travel writing, travel documenting, becoming a certified travel agent and who knows, the First Black British woman to visit every country on planet earth? ..With all things said my greatest purpose is to inspire you to embrace that dream of yours regardless of life’s obstacles.

The trip will begin with an exploration of South East Asia for a month while creating a comprehensive travel guide. I'll be mixing my love for travel writing with photography and videography to offer a full personal story of my experience.

Hopefully you are still reading and would love to support my journey in not only documenting our breathtaking planet but following the journey of a dream chaser!

I've spent the past few years documenting my adventures and providing personal travel guides/tips on Social Media platforms via my travel blog and mostly utilising my iPhone SE. While this has been an amazing and enjoyable experience, committing my career to this now requires that I invest in the resources that will enhance the quality of my travel documentation. 

As you can imagine leaving home and picking up this 'Nomad life' in a completely different continent requires essential equipment. After investing in an iPhone, completing online courses and purchasing travel/tech books to get me on my feet there are still so many things on my to-do list before i head out to Thailand in a months time. 

Supporting me towards the purchase of my dream travel camera and laptop ( Sony rx100 iv - £729 or the Canon G5 x - £629.95, and the Apple MacBookAir {Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 256GB Flash Storage,13.3" - £1099} ) will be immensely appreciated.

I'm so fortunate to have the opportunity to inspire others through living my dreams, and to be able to do this for a lifetime will be unthinkable!

I truly appreciate your support in every way!

Doyin :)

Thank you soooo much to all you beautiful souls that have sowed into my journey so far! Means a lot to have support from family and friends! I pray that God will bless you beyond your expectations always in Jesus name!

Thanks so much once again - this is the camera you helped me to purchase! I truly hope I'll use this to document our God given planet and provide a service to many folks out there looking to travel & live outside their comfort zones (including you!). Thank you, thank you! & Don't forget to dream BIG! Doyin ;) xx
