Nanjala Nyabola

Overview

What does travel look like for someone in a world often designed to restrict them? What does it mean to travel for pleasure when so many people aren't able to find the freedom they seek? And how can we bring more empathy to our travel experiences?

Born and raised in Kenya, Nanjala Nyabola is a writer, academic, lawyer, and human rights activist. As a speaker of ten languages, Nyabola has visited more than 70 countries, from South Africa to Italy to Nepal. In this series of essays, the author recounts various stories from traveling and living abroad, from working for a human rights organization in Haiti to attempting to summit Mount Everest. Along the way, Nyabola meditates on racism and issues like the refugee crisis and worker exploitation, while still finding room for humor and charm.

"The traveller... can be a template for untethered intellectual curiosity, and an example of what freedom is created by certain forms of mobility."
