I’m just another girl with a dream to travel the world to experience new cultures, be adventurous and enjoy life. I’m just blessed to have the opportunity to actually live my dream. Growing up I never went on holidays (for reasons best known to my dad lol). He’d always say to me “a time will come when you will travel the world and you’d get tired of it”.
I think that time is now but am I tired of it yet? No! and will I ever get tired of it? I don’t think so! By the way, my name is Koteitsoo Ashie-Kotei, but you can call me Tsotsoo or Tsoo cause that’s what everyone else calls me and no it’s not Asian. You’d be surprised at the number of people who ask me if it is but I don’t mind at all.
Moving on to my least favourite question; tell me about yourself or who is Tsotsoo? Well in my mind, I’m the most interesting person you’d ever meet (Note that I said in my mind) however, my friends think otherwise which is why I find it so surprising when they always want to hang out with me all the time.
I legit have the most interesting conversations with myself (weird I know lol) but they say people who talk to themselves are geniuses…. hint hint. From the little I’ve said you can gather that there is a possibility that I may be a fun person, a weirdo and genius. If that doesn’t spell amazing then I don’t know what else does.
I moved from Ghana to Manchester, England 3 years ago to study law and for the first year, I lived with 3 of my sisters, of which I’m the youngest. During that time I didn’t do much, life had me stuck in one place, the only thing I had going on for me at the time was just school. I literally stayed in Manchester the entire time and travelled to London just once. My second year was a lot better, all my sisters moved back to Ghana.. (phew thank heavens!) and I lived by myself. I travelled to the middle east and around the UK, which I think is really pretty when you drive out of the cities to the countryside especially when it’s bright and sunny.
Now here’s what inspired me to start blogging, Princess Jasmine, yes the Princess Jasmine of the Disney movie Aladdin! I can show you the world shining, shimmering, splendid….. A whole new world, a dazzling place I never knew, unbelievable sights and indescribable feelings. The lyrics of the soundtrack for the movie, a whole new world, paints a perfect picture of me and my quest to explore the world except there’s no Aladdin or his magic carpet in my case. Although I could really use the magic carpet. I’m always amazed by the beauty of the world, and I just needed an outlet to express my thoughts. This year I intend to travel a lot more God willing around England, Europe and maybe Asia and I thought it would be awesome to share my experiences. On this blog I will talk and post pictures about the places I visited, the activities I got up to, and suggest places to eat and stay. Hopefully, I’ll inspire you to go on holiday some place you never dreamt off.
