 WE WENT CAMPING IN NIGERIA (PART 2)- OGUN STATE, NIGERIA

image3

Before you start this post, you should read part 1 here ADVENTURE DAY II ! The morning after I slept lay all night in this tent. How was my night? First I must confess I swapped tents. My tent was originally under a tree and closest to the Forest, right in-front of the forest pathway infact. Lord, I was scared to near-death! Things were creeping on my tent, noise from the forest was going right into my ears, I kept...

WE WENT CAMPING IN NIGERIA (PART 1)- OGUN STATE, NIGERIA

Yes we did! Camping in Nigeria isn’t a regular occurrence and when our travel “cousin”, Unravelling Nigeria had planned a camping trip to the Omo Forest Reserve, Ogun state we were estatic. It was too much of an adventurous trip and Naija Nomads just had to be there! One of the perks of being a Naija Nomad is getting to go on awesome trips like these (no vacancy for my job position, thank you!). I packed my bags and ignored...

FEELING ARTSY IN LAGOS CITY

IMG_2285

Art galleries really isn’t my thing but the moment my blogger boo Bidemi of bidsingraceland threw open the offer, I couldn’t resist. Here is how our conversation went that fine Thursday afternoon. Bids: Hey Mofe! We need to do something, we haven’t hung out in a while.  Mofe: I know right. We should. What do you have in mind?  Bids: Have you done a tour of Lagos island(old Lagos)? We should totally do that.  Mofe: I’m really not ready for...

SAFETY WHILE TRIPPING

safety while trippng!

On this episode of Through Our Eyes (TOE), we emphasize the importance of safety while traveling. Safety before you go or safety while in a destination, we all need to ensure we stay safe while vacationing. For Amarachi, she takes her malaria drugs with her, I always have my itinerary scanned and emailed to my family members or myself and  Fola advises to always take a sharp object with you! Lol. Sit back and enjoy :. Do not forget to...

RWANDIARIES DAY 3 & 4 – THE HILLS ARE ALIVE

Green and loving it

They do not call this place the land of a 1,000 hills for nothing and throughout our 3 hour journey from Kigali – Gisenyi, I was marvelled. I was constantly telling my husband, “babe please take a photo”, “babe please make a video”, “babe please let’s stop”. A regular 3 hour trip took us over 4 hours because of the numerous stops. The hills were truly alive. Here is how our last two days in Rwanda went. DAY 3- THE...

RWANDIARIES DAY 2: THE RAIN TRIED IT

IMG_1965

It started raining buckets today. Everyone’s spirit was dampened including my 7 month old daughter. This was our last day in Kigali and the only day we had to explore the city and visit attractions. The rain really tried it, but we were determined to see one particular attraction; the genocide museum. We decided we would get umbrellas, visit the genocide museum and stay in the hotel. We headed to the restaurant for breakfast, showered and got dressed for the day. Then the rain stopped. Hallelujah!!!!! Our day started around...

RWANDIARIES DAY 1- GREEN AND LOVING IT

Image-1

Kigali is everything you’ve seen online. Absolutely GREEN! Yes I am currently in Rwanda with my family for the next four days and boy am I excited. We definitely made the perfect choice for our international trip this year (see Nomad Trips-2017) and the Nomads are going to love it when they come in June. We arrived Kigali at about 5.00pm (Rwandan time). Our flight, fully booked, took about 4 hours 30 minutes from Lagos, Nigeria. My hope that Nigerians are now open to...

WE ARE ON YOUTUBE!

HASHTAG

One of my highlights of last year was kicking of a YouTube Channel about…you guessed right, TRAVEL! This channel is with two awesome women, Fola and Amarachi who are just as crazy about travel as I am. I’ve always harbored the thought of having a TV show and when Fola came to me with this idea, I jumped on it. This wasn’t the show I envisaged having but travel is something I love to talk about so why not? We...
