Spirited Pursuit is a creative digital platform that produces and publishes captivating travel content. Created from founder Lee Litumbe's passion for travel, photography, and storytelling, Spirited Pursuit strives to inform and inspire a global community of adventurers. Clear in its mission to be a visual experience for travel lovers, the site also serves as a platform for others to share their individual perspectives on the transformative nature of travel.

By carefully curating deeply authentic stories, guides, and resources, Spirited Pursuit attracts adventurers that take life by the horns and seek meaningful experiences that expose them to all of the richness that exists within the world.
As the face and voice behind Spirited Pursuit, Lee Litumbe's mission is simple: she is in spirited pursuit of travel, adventure, and new cultural experiences. As a self-taught photographer and storyteller, Lee uses photography to shape poignant narratives on cultural immersion; bringing fresh perspectives to travel experiences off-the-beaten track. A Cameroonian by birth, an American by upbringing, and a Nomad at heart, Lee has a deep rooted appreciation for a well-traveled and adventurous life. With every published story, her longing to experience and explore deeper into all that exists within the world is re-ignited.
