THE GOOD, BAD & UGLY- NOMADS IN RWANDA

Uzoma and her Flag :D

If anyone had told us last year that Naija Nomads will be EXPERIENCE CURATORS, curating group trips to green passport friendly destinations, our response would have been “shut the front door!”. But here we are, back from an amazing trip to an unlikely destination, Rwanda. When we put out calendar for the year, we were very skeptical and uncertain that people will trust us enough to travel with us. It’s one thing to curate trips within the country. It’s another...

HOW TO STAY FIT ON A VACATION

The only time I’ve gone on a vacation and come back fat was during my honeymoon to Zanzibar. Look yeah, I had absolutely no care in the world because I starved myself so much for that perfect wedding body. I was only drinking nasty green veggies for an entire month! The moment I stepped my toe in Zanzi, I had no care in the world and I went on a BINGE. Binge in caps because in 7 days, I came...

image4 (1)

If you follow this blog, you’ll know we’ve gone camping twice in Nigeria. Our first camping experience was at Omo Forest Grove and we documented our experience here and here. The second was more of a glamping trip (ie glamourous camping). It was not as crazy as the first as we stayed by the beach in actual cabins. We also brushed our teeths in actual bathrooms and took showers, lol. You can read all about that here. These seven lessons...

ITS EASTER AND HERE IS HOW WE CELEBRATE! 

img_3411

For the most part of the long weekend, the Easter dish Frejon has been on my mind. I blame those chefs/cooks throwing Frejon recipes all over the internet. Truthfully, I have not physically seen a plate of Frejon. It was neither eaten in my home nor one of our Easter family traditions. Growing up we ate traditional Nigeria dishes for Easter. Jollof Rice, Pounded Yam, Amala e.t.c. Not saying Frejon is not a Nigerian dish but it was imported from...
