Why I Love Solo-Cations

Sometime last year, I went on a tour of some natural attractions in Southwestern Nigeria. These were states I hadn’t been to before and I didn’t know anyone there. Yet, I was drawn to the sounds of waterfalls and of heights yet unseen. So I did the most insane thing to do— pick up a backpack with little cash and take the trip!

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”

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!

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,
