Packing for a 2-week trip is stressful. Packing for a whole year is a nightmare, especially when you are on a budget and have to keep things within the airline baggage weight limit. There’s packing, weighing and then unpacking in order of least necessary and least expensive to replace, until you get a combination that is relatively satisfying.
Now many sites here will tell you there are 2 ways to get an International Passport in Nigeria;
Online and Offline method and they are right. But as your friend, I will tell you that for now, there is really just one. Let me explain.
Whatever your reason, going to India from Nigeria requires an Indian visa. This process can be daunting especially if you need to travel for medical reasons. This post is an […]
Trips during the Christmas period can be hectic and exhausting, so depending on your circumstance this may not always be possible. However, it’s holiday season. Smile, talk to the stranger sitting next to you on the bus or flight. Don’t wait till there’s turbulence and you feel like you might be about to die before you say hello. Take a few pictures at your stops. Make memories and live a little.
Losing your international passport can be one of the most upsetting experiences ever, especially if you have valid visas in it, and or are outside Nigeria. If this is your situation, this post is for you. If not, do yourself a favour and make copies of your data page and valid visas if you haven’t already.
Bath is in the valley of the River Avon, west of London, England, or so Google says. I only rode the bus there. This city is a popular tourist destination because, as the name implies, the city is known for its hot springs and Roman-built baths. Yes, back in 60AD, Romans used to come from far and wide to soak and enjoy the hot springs.
Now, if you’ve ever wondered where the phrase “every man and his dog” came from, I’m quite certain it’s Great Britain.
Sequel to my previous post on South African Visa requirements, this post is an update for 2017 requirements. All the application requirements with regards to documents remain the same as […]
Since the closure of the Nnamdi Azikwe Airport on the 8th of March, 2017, residents and guest have been force to use the Kaduna airport or travel by road. What nobody tells you about using the Kaduna Airport is that every trip is longer by at least two hours.
Still on Discovering Dakar, this post focuses primarily on the three main tourist sites I visited:
•Île de Gorée (Goree Island)
•Maison des Esclaves (House of Slaves)
•Le Monument de la Renaissance Africaine (The African Renaissance Monument)
•Lac Rose (The Pink Lake)
After discovering Delhi and sequel to my previous post, lets explore Dakar!
2016 was a really great year for me and this year appears to be no exception! I’m off on another adventure, this time I’m going to Senegal! The Republic of Senegal […]
Visa applications are often very stressful. It’s JAMB all over again particularly for first-time applicants to the United States, United Kingdom and other developed countries. However, with a little insight and some effort in the right direction, your application is sure to be successful.
It’s the end of the year and we aren’t taking any baggage into 2017. So, this post is to help you stitch the pieces of your broken heart together and get it pumping again. Think of this as a sort of resuscitation.
I want to be excited because “there is no place like home” but Murtala Muhammed Airport Abuja airport is the only one I’ve been to where you have to
Jaipur, popularly referred to as the “Pink City”, is the capital of the State of Rajasthan, India. It is known for its unique architecture, forts, palaces, art, culture and of course, its tasty cuisines.
Sequel to my previous post, this focuses on the stark differences between Nigeria and India.
In Nigerian terms “India has light constantly”. Even driving by what appeared to be a slum, I notice bulbs shining brightly. The power supply has only gone off twice and I was surprised to hear myself say “NEPA has finally taken the light”. In about 5 minutes, power supply was restored. For someone who has endured erratic power supply all her life, there’s not much to say or compare with here except to express disappointment and pray that Fashola can redeem us.
I’ve been here for over 2 months now, touring and making a mental note of helpful information for you in case you ever find that you are heading this way. I’ll get to the point.
What to wear
In contrast to the information I found on the internet, dressing standards here are not as strict as I was lead to believe. However, you have to cover your cleavage. I’m not saying turtle neck but your “girls” must be covered. It’s confusing because exposed midriffs appear to be acceptable. A few temples require that your clothes cover your knees as well but that’s all I’ve seen.
Delhi is home to a number of historic architectural monuments and I have visited a number of them, which I’ll tell you about in subsequent posts. However, nothing prepared me for the magnificence of the Akshardham Temple, making this a challenging post to articulate.
Life has taken me on another adventure and guess where? India!
It’s my first time in Asia; Earth’s largest and most populous continent. For over a month now, I’ve been in Delhi, the capital territory. It is a massive metropolitan area north of the country, located much like Abuja is in Nigeria. It is bordered by Haryana which I’ve also had the opportunity to visit.
Getting a visa is one of the first things that come to mind when planning a foreign trip. Now, according to the Passport Index, the Nigerian passport ranks 81st in the world, giving us visa-free or visa on arrival to 44 countries.
It is always fun to travel. My earliest memory of traveling is staring out at the trees speeding past on either side of the endless stretch of road, and then drifting in and out of sleep in the backseat of my dad’s Peugeot 504. This year, I’ve been blessed to travel often, both locally and abroad, and even now, the steady hum of the engine, plane or car, still sends me to sleep.
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.
Cape Town is such a beautiful city. It is on South Africa’s southwest coast, at the foot of the magnificent Table Mountain. This city is blessed with so many beaches for both the Pacific and Atlantic Ocean, and other really breath-taking natural wonders.
Ocean Basket is a seafood restaurant chain with outlets around South Africa, and a branch in Victoria Island, Lagos. Not everyone is big on sea food so a few of my colleagues were hesitant. However, with really good reviews on Trip Advisor, and its proximity to our lodgings, I convinced them to take a chance.
