Hello World!

I have never been so excited to write something that potentially no one might read :).


Ok ok , I will get my entire family and friend list to read it first; perhaps bribe a few of them. If however, you miraculously find yourself reading this… well, Hello and Welcome to my blog.


My name is Tania, I’m an IT Entrepreneur originally from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). I moved to South Africa over 14 years ago but quite honestly, I consider myself to be something of a global citizen.


Kongo Travels is a blog that chronicles the trips and adventures of a young African traveler. It’s simply my attempt at relating the joys, the fun and headaches of travelling with a “3rd World” passport. So here’s my open invitation to you all to discover the world with me and to share your own experiences, which I simply cannot wait to hear about.


Here’s to life, travel, good food, lots of pictures, music and everything in between!

  • Hello T from Kongo Travels.

    I would like to congratulate you on such a different and out of the norm initiative.

    We are not used to see our african sisters embark in such adventures and you must be proud of yourself.

    We will be looking at your blog as you achieve your goals and travel the world.

    All the best and many success

  • You go girl!

    What a bright initiative…well with you Tanya, am not surprised at all!

    Sharing experiences and lessons learnt are in my humble opinion the best way to tackle tomorrow…

    So keep it up!

  • Hi mere Tania super super, somtimes notre passport bleu doesn’t do us any justice but is so great to see something new, different and beautiful from our own sister big up!!!! 🙂 hope this blog inspires others to see that all is possible. I am already in mode ahhhhh Pareee……

  • Dear Tha,

    For as long as i have known you my very limited mind NEVER managed grasp what your creative personality was preparing for. However, in most cases the vision always flourished into something beautiful. That is because you do not think out of the box…you threw the box away a long time ago…
    keep going gurl, we here reading.

  • Hello Tania,
    Wonderful initiative, I love the idea. I have seen other travel blogs in the past, but none of them adequately relate some of the realities and joys that traveling with the blue Congolese passport brings.
    Keep writing and sharing your experiences, we will keep reading with interest and commenting when needed.
    All the best and thanks for sharing with us your journey as you visit the wonderful places this world has to offer… The world is a beautiful place!!!

  • This is awesome 🙂 Good one for starting this. I will certainly read your posts. I love to travel but don’t have the time or cash to and so it will be great to read about the world from your eyes.

  • Wooah !!!!!! C’est vraiment originale ton idée, je vais souscrire à cette belle initiative. Comme on le dit souvent « Rien ne développe l’intelligence comme le voyage »

  • Hi Tania,

    This really is an awesome initiative!
    And yes,travelling with our blue passport has its challenges and perks I guess and I’m sure it will be interesting to share this experience with you and others,and even see the world through different eyes.

    All I can wish you is success from the bottom of my heart.

  • Awesome Tania!!! Luckily for you, some of us won’t need to be bribed :-). 3rd world passport, the struggle is real..and so is the amazement of discovering new places n’est-ce pas?


  • Hey T,

    Like you said only your family and best of friends will respond… lol … Great initiative and yes you’ll hear great stories i am sure.

    Cheers and best of lucks.
