Red

I'm Red and I like to write and I take a few great pictures. A constant learner caught in wanderlust, I'm always looking for new ideas, destination or adventure! Best part it, I tell everyone about it on my blog. When I’m not reading, editing or writing for this blog, you’ll find me saving the planet from villains and zombies, or just raiding the fridge.🙈

A Few Things to do in Cape Town

Cape town is such a beautiful tourist city, with lots of places to shop, dine, explore and relax.
Sequel to my previous post, here are a few note-worthy places and people in Cape Town.

Dinner at Ocean Basket, Johannesburg

South African Visa Requirements for Nigeria (2016 Update)

If you have a reason to go to South Africa from Nigeria, perhaps for business or pleasure; it is helpful to keep in mind that the requirements for a South African visa change often.

So, this post is to better prepare you for your visa submission at the VFS Office.

My 11 Favorite Mobile Apps

On the average, I have about 100 apps on my phone and right now, I have 129 installed. Most of them perform similar functions but have unique features that make them indispensable. Others I have not used in a while, but because they often come in handy, I keep them. Why delete a useful app if you have space for it? I have a lot of space!

Book Review: Killing Kennedy by Bill O’Rielly

JFK was a rich kid turned Naval War Hero after saving the men of PT 109 in 1943. He learnt to take charge and lead even while in the White House; with The Bay of Pigs, the Invasion of Cuba serving as a lesson in cowardice. This prepared him to deal decisively with the Soviet Union Leader Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev during the Cuban Missile Crisis

6 Reasons to Walking For Weight Loss

Why We Are Still Bestfriends

It’s been 15 years of friendship and I’m often asked how we’ve held it together after all this time.

Why You Should Read More

Honestly, I’m surprised by this statistic. Our reading culture in Nigeria ends after Comprehension in English Language and the compulsory Secondary School Literature books, or effectively after we “pass exam”. Afterwards, its Facebook Feed, Twitter Timeline or just the monthly pay-slip.
