Life on the road

After announcing her decision to drive solo from Kenya to Lagos, Ebaide said some people thought she was crazy, while others called her brave.

“I had spent ten weeks travelling with a tricycle and living on the road. During that trip, and I realized how much I love living on the road. Crazy is correct, but brave, not so much. I am scared to death. I mean, it’s about the countries I will be travelling through.

“It’s about the ‘dangerous’ vehicle I am choosing to use. It’s about doing it all by myself. It’s about not understanding the language some of these countries speak. It’s so nerve-wracking my racing heart constantly pleads for mercy,” she noted.

“I do not know what to expect. How thrilling is that? I have done many exciting things in my life, and that’s why I know that ‘excitement’ is too mild and a word for how I truly feel. I am over the moon with happiness and fear,” she added.

The overland adventurer described the journey as the most expansive expedition of her life. “This wild idea crept into my mind sometime last year, just before I purchased my motorcycle.

“I had spent ten weeks travelling with a tricycle and embracing life on the road. During that journey, I realized my profound love for immersing myself in the nomadic lifestyle

Choosing a motorcycle was an easy decision for me because nothing makes me feel as alive as riding does. As I ride against the wind, I know that the path of my life is entirely in my hands. I hope this inspires others to overcome their fears and live life on their own terms.
