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 to fly people out to an unknown destination and be responsible for them. We let fear creep in.
We got a total of eight sign ups for the trip out of which we only knew one person, Ebere. This worried us a little as we did not know what sort of characters our nomads will possess. We all hope for the best participants on every trip but sometimes life just gives you certain people to test your patience. No jokes! We even judged some of them without knowing them. You know how you judge people based on their instagram profile or one conversation you’ve had with them over the phone? Yes, we did that, lol. Will they be divas? Will they be spoilsports? Will they go with the flow? Will they be cooperative?
