Hello, I am Edem! I am a Writer, an Educator and a Traveller. I have visited and explored over 40 countries across Africa, Europe and Asia. I write about my adventures and share tips on how you can do the same and more. I am still as excited as ever to explore more of this beautiful world and I want to be your fun and experienced travel guide.

I will like to take out the hassle of planning for your trips as I share travel hacks, promote inspiring and life-transforming destinations, trips and retreats that will change narratives and stereotypes about Africa and the world. That is why I founded Vamejo. Vamejo, means, “come let’s go” in Ewe, a language spoken in the Volta Region of Ghana, parts of Togo and Benin, all in West Africa. So whether you are an individual, group, or a travel-related brand, Vamejo has something for you.

If you are a tourism and travel brand, I will love to work with you too.

For Travel and Tourism Brands, let’s work together…

I have worked with individuals and groups, for a national tourist board and various travel brands. As an avid traveller, I have been to over 40 countries so far and currently share my insights, travel hacks as well as destination guides in my weekly column for the multiple award-winning Business & Financial Times newspaper, which has an average of 45,000 daily readers in print in Ghana.

I curate great content, take great photos and design engaging websites too. I worked in advertising and managed campaigns, events and the growth of major global and fortune 500 brands.

If you are an organisation and our values align, I am happy to represent and engage your audience on different platforms. I have spoken to thousands of different audiences in China, across Africa and Europe.

I live in Ghana and Iceland, so travelling between continents is not a problem at all.

I studied at the number 1 university for Travel and Tourism in the UK, so hiring me on projects, will mean hiring an ambitious, relevant and experienced entrepreneurial mind who will work hard with you to get consistent results.

If I cannot do it, you bet I know someone who can. I can also team up with other great travel influencers who have an organic and growing social media audience of over 200,000 followers across platforms and thousands more offline. Together, we can help you get your message across in an authentic and impactful way. Just know we carefully handpick the brands we love and introduce them to our audience.

Below are some examples of possible ways we can collaborate, but I am always open to new ways of collaborating with you:
