Sequel to OSUN, I remember how my tummy growled like a hungry lion when we were told that the restaurant and bar were closed. It seemed like they weren’t expecting any visitors. The rooms were left unattended to. Although the receptionist tried to explain that a government party had just used the resort for a retreat. We were at Ikogosi resort, and I was disappointed.

I remember how I’d make lofty plans that all hinged on ‘If only I had time for myself’. It’s a lot easier to make these plans when you’re stuck in a routine.

From then on, the love for traveling was seeded in me. I wanted to see the world differently, learn new things, watch changes in weather, eat new things and much more. Traveling became a part of me that I would stifle in years to come. Continue reading “Travel Diaries”→
April was an interesting month for me. A lot happened within the short 30 days duration of the month. First I got to experience some remarkable events at work, then I made some life altering decisions, and then I traveled to the South-South region of Nigeria. As usual, I learned a lot from my journeys, and I think you should take a look! Continue reading “Journey of M.”→
