I consider myself lucky to know all kinds of talented people, many of whom I count as my closest friends. All of the below folk come highly recommended, both in their respective crafts and as sound human beings. Moreover, they are all sound human beings. And believe me, that’s not something I take for granted.
Meet Eromonsele Emmanuel, The Nigerian travel blogger! His site, Ericotrips, kicked off as a platform for reviewing transportation options through honest write-ups of firsthand experiences. These days, he also has tonnes of blogs and vlogs on art galleries, monuments, beaches and more. He is a firm believer that travel and tourism begins right in his own backyard. As a result, he is a passionate promoter of all things Nigeria.
In March 2020 I was delighted to be featured on Ericotrips with a Q&A article about my journey developing Leighton Travels.
In September 2019 I was delighted to partner up with kimchibytes.com, an expats blog for people to share their thoughts and opinions about living in South Korea and abroad. A huge thanks to Ashley for featuring a string of my travel reports from across South Korea.
For unique, thought-provoking sketches, videos and art installations, check out the work of the brilliant Anthony Ragucci. I met Anthony in Beijing back in early 2014. As teaching colleagues, neighbours and horror film buffs, we fast became good friends. Furthermore, Anthony is the creator of my original blog logo back when this site was first created as Leighton Literature.
