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!

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...

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...
