Last December, I went on a group trip organized by Jadesola of The Bourgie Life to visit the renowned Olumo Rock. Now if you had your primary and/or secondary/high school education in Nigeria, chances are you’ve been to Olumo Rock on one of those organized school excursions. I went while in Secondary School too and honestly, both experiences are incomparable.
It’s funny how I’ve lived in Lagos all twenty-something years of my life and there is so much I’m yet to discover about this state. A trip to Epe Mangroves with Cassie opened my eyes to the divide between living in Urban and Rural Lagos, it’s almost like you’re transported to a different state entirely. We planned this trip at different times with different groups of people but eventually ended up going on our own.
During the October Independence long weekend holiday, I dragged my friend along on a road trip from Lagos to Ekiti State. The journey was unexpectedly long and tiring, we even considered going back to Lagos halfway through the journey. At a point, I got scared and had to call fellow blogger Tosinto find out if she had the same experience on her frequent trips to the area. I’ve tried to do a brief breakdown in case you ever want to visit the area, I also listed all the places we visited and put the info of our helpful cab driver; Mr Deji who took us round the town.

I’m always on the lookout for new places to eat in Lagos and my friend J has become my accomplice/

We went at night and got lost because I’m totally clueless when it comes to directions and we forgot to use Google Map but we found our way back there in no time.
I’ve always wanted to travel to Accra, Ghana via road for the longest time. I’ve tried planning a trip with my mum (who was adamant about using flight, so cancelled) and different group of friends but it always got cancelled due to one reason or the other. When I saw that Cassie was planning a trip to Ghana, I decided to jump on it, after going back and forth and nearly cancelling, we did it!

When Cassie and I were in Ghana, we tried to do as many tourist-y things as possible and visit as many places in Accra as we could in 2 full days. Now, you’re not going to find anything about Ghana jollof or food in this post because either the one place we tried it were having a bad day on that particular day or it’s just not worth talking about, you choose. These places were my absolute favorites, we visited other places you might not find on this list but must have seen if you follow me on Instagram
