Travel Diaries: OSUN

Someone asked if I went on a vacation, and I laughed and said ‘travel and tourism is more than a vacation. It’s my life.’ This particular trip fell short of being a vacation in so many ways. Continue reading “Travel Diaries: OSUN”

Last Rays of Summer

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to go on a road trip with my friends. It was gonna be a lot like road trips with my family—except that the home-cooked meals would be replaced by Pringles. Finally, in July I was able to get some of my friends onboard with our mini-vacation plans to explore some deeper parts of Lagos (which I coulda sworn was a totally different state). Here’s how the journey went: Continue reading “Last Rays of Summer”

Travel Diaries

Growing up, one of my fond memories was traveling across the country with my dad on official duties. He usually teased and called me his ‘briefcase’ which he carried around. 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”

Journey of M.

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.”

Day 23: Something you always think ‘what if’ about.

I always wonder,
What if I could pick up my bag,
And travel to a new place,
A place I know little about,
To experience life differently,
With no schedules or routines. Continue reading “Day 23 of 30 Days Blogging Challenge”

Travel Quotes

Hey guys!

How’s the weekend going? Bet it isn’t as lazy as mine *yawns*

So yay, it’s day 20 of the A-Z blogging challenge! Today’s letter is T and all I can think about is ‘travelling’! 😀 T

I’ve always loved travelling! Personally I feel travel liberates the mind from the shackles of culture and tradition. I’ve talked about countries I would really love to visit and why.

 

I’m gonna share a few travel quotes that I hope would ignite the wanderlust in you 😉

TRAV

Definitely! It’s amazing what you see in different countries and cultures. It leaves you completely speechless! But it also turns you to a storyteller as you narrate your experiences.

TRAVE

I totally agree with this as travelling is my one source of adventure 🙂

JOURNEY

Word! You discover yourself by travelling. Take that journey today!

Pack your bags. Buy that ticket and take the trip!

Not all those who wander are lost.- JRR Tolkien

I hope you enjoyed the travel quotes and I do hope it ignited the wanderlust in you. You’ll be the first to know when I set sail to explore the world 😉

***Do you like traveling? What countries would you like to visit? Please share!***

Have a fabulous weekend!

Lots of love,

Five Places I Would Love to Visit and Why -Day28

List five places I would love to visit and why

With only 3 days left to the end of the challenge, let’s make each day count. I particularly love today’s challenge cause it has to do with travelling and that’s one of my favourite things. It’s got me grinning from ear to ear already. Hehe.

So tighten your seat belt guys, it’s gonna be a long ride to my happy place. 😉

Australia– Australia! A pure kiss of nature. I really would love to visit this continent in my lifetime. There are so many exciting places to visit and things to see including the Great Barrier Reef, the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Uluru rock, Warner Bros Movie world, Kangaroos, turtles and loads more! Plus, I’d get to visit Hillsong church as I’ve always dreamed of.

The wildlife in Australia is incredible (thanks to Nat Geo Wild channel) and I would really love to experience every bit of it. Suit up and watch the outdoor M. come alive!

France- This is another beautiful place I’ve just got to visit in my lifetime. I’ll like to visit the art museums as well as the Eiffel tower (maybe, just maybe, he could come along and get a cue to propose at that sweet romantic spot *drifting into daydreams* Lol).

France is also known for bread and heck! I love me some bread. And perfumes…Oh my! Can’t wait to be showered in fragrances! Let’s toast to this trip with some French wine! *clinks a wine glass*

Italy- Oh sweet Italy! With beauty awaiting the lens of my camera and the snapping of my fingers on the keyboard. I’ll really, really love to visit Italy with its picturesque scenery and dainty food. Uhhhh, pasta! Mama luvs pasta! *Faking an Italian accent*

I’ll  love to visit the attractive spots in Italy including the Grand Canal, the Florence cathedral,the Colosseum, the leaning Tower of Pisa…you can bet that I would take lots of pictures of the artistic structures as well. Dear future husband, let’s have some romance in Rome *pun intended* 😉

Greece- Another idyllic country to visit in Europe. After spending many semesters in school studying the works of Socrates, Plato, Aristotle… I’m way too curious to visit Greece. Perhaps I’d get some Greek inspiration to come up with some “M. Theories” and Ideologies 😀

I would like to visit the Olympian temple of Zeus, Plaka, the Parthenon temple and the Acropolis museum. Dust your history books and let’s get schooled by the Greeks! *glasses on*

Brazil- After a long debate about the last place to travel between Brazil and South Africa, Brazil won. That’s cause I should visit South Africa sooner rather than later. So Brazil it is! With its colourful carnivals and beautiful beaches. I’d love to take pictures of the ‘Christ the Redeemer’ statue, the Sugarloaf Mountain, Iguazu Falls, São Paulo zoo and a whole lot more! Let’s go act another Rio animation 😀

Is it over already? *cries* I was so deep in my zone, writing about the places I would love to visit and seeing myself there. Don’t worry, I’d post original photos when the time comes. It’s no surprise that I’m thrilled about travelling and writing and I believe dreams come true! 😉

Close with some quotes;

Nobody can discover the world for somebody else. Only when we discover it for ourselves does it become common ground and a common bond and we cease to be alone. – Wendell Berry

Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller. – Ibn Battuta

Your turn…

What five places would you love to visit?

It’s not over until it is!
