TRIP REVIEW: CAMP NOMADS

Happy Easter Sunday!

We camped at beach cabins in Lagos last month and we got one of our campers, Timah, to do a trip review. Timah was one of the 18 nomads on the trip and this was her first time camping with a group of strangers. It was everyone’s first time to be honest. Read and enjoy her review below: CAMPING WITH STRANGERS Life’s a Beach and you should always try to enjoy it as much as you can! Also, being an...

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...

THE JET SETTING WATCHES

Happy 
Palm sunday

Hey Nomads! Do you follow those luxury instagram accounts (houses, watches, yatchs or cars) and flip through their pages for hours unending….writing and rewritting wish lists? We found a luxury watch account that combines luxury watches and travel. Whats more exciting? The account owner is Nigerian, lives in Nigeria and jet sets with a Nigerian passport. How cool is that? After months of stalking, he shared with us some tips and advise on traveling with luxury watches, the most difficult...

The first time I set my eyes on Dee’s Instagram page, I wanted to go on an adventure with her! Her fun personality shines through her photos and she seemed like the perfect travel companion. From hot air ballooning in Cappadocia, seeing the Northern lights in Iceland, spending the night in the desert in Morocco to taking mind bending photos in Salar De Uyuni and climbing Machu Picchu, her travel journey is really impressive and will inspire you to see...

MEDICAL TOURISM: A RISING NICHE MARKET IN NIGERIA 

IMG_20170216_124644

Hey Nomads! Its Travel Tuesday and we have a different and exciting interview today. When most people think of tourism/travel what comes to mind is adventure, experiencing cultures, visiting sites, trying out new food or even for religious purposes. However, we all know people travel to every corner of the earth for medical/health purposes and that niche market is called Medical Tourism. We found a doctor who lives in Nigeria and offers medical tourism facilitation services to Nigerians. He combines his...

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

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...

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...
