Money, money, money. It makes the world go round, they say. I’ll say it also makes you go around the world, literally. Today, I am starting the Travel Finance Series: How To Fund Your Travels. I hope it helps you start your travel journey or gets you closer to your dream destination.
It’s been two weeks since my trip to Orlando, Florida and I still catch myself flashing back to that experience ever so often. I mean, who wouldn’t? Some places are simply unforgettable. In this post, I am shamelessly trying to figure out my most special moment at Universal. It’s tough, it’s tough. There are too many highlights to pick from.
Welcome to the happiest place on earth, where dreams come true. My Walt Disney experience in Orlando, Florida is one I will not be forgetting for a very long time. It is high up there as one of my most memorable travel experiences yet and you will understand my sentiments as you read along.
Let us ring in summer 2017, shall we? Pack your bags, get your bikinis, let’s go! It’s the most amazing time of the year. Time to let your hair down, tuck away your layers of clothing and have long walks by the beach, a mojito in hand, with not a care in the world. (Ready, set, go! Ringing in Summer 2017)
Today, I am introducing a new series to the blog called Pre-travel diaries. Basically, it will be a round-up on how I am getting ready for an upcoming trip and how I am feeling leading up to it. I know just how vital preparation is, so here’s hoping that this new blog series will give you an idea of what to make sure of and things to do before you go to these places. First stop, Orlando, Florida.
Dear traveler, you need travel insurance. Often times when a trip is being planned, we cover the basics of transportation, feeding, accommodation and then ignore the one thing that is really important; travel insurance. Remember skipping on the option to buy travel insurance while purchasing your plane ticket? Yes, yes, I’m guilty too. On today’s post, I am putting on my geek glasses for you, because, I got you.
Today’s post is one I have wanted to write for sometime now but I just couldn’t articulate properly. It wasn’t until recently that I made another attempt at the umpteenth time and voila, the words started to flow. This one’s for all my travel lovers, world travelers, travel enthusiasts, nomads, ajalas (as we’ll say in Nigeria) and to you. Yes, you.
What happens when six young girls come together for a girls-only weekend in the buzzing city of Toronto? You guessed right- pure magic! Easter 2017 saw six in the city, exploring the beautiful city of Toronto, Canada.
A museum with cool airplanes on display? Count me in! I am very fascinated with airplanes and how they work. No surprises here as a good amount of my time is spent in one. It was this same fascination that led me to do a tour of WestJet’s cockpit which I really loved. The mechanics of it all is very intriguing. You know, a big object suspending in the air.
Hello and welcome to my blog. It’s a good day to stop by. Today, I am excited to share some of my scary first time travel adventures with you. Looking back, those things scared me to my bones but you know what they say about feeling the fear but doing it anyway? I did exactly that. *Pats myself on the back*
Anyone ever seen one of those travel quotes that read, “quit your job, buy a ticket and never return” and let out a heavy sigh because that’s only a dream for you? Perhaps you saw it while at your desk at work and you’re longing to be somewhere else with a cocktail in hand and some vitamin sea. You don’t have to quit your job. Here’s how to travel while working full-time.
In my lifetime, I sure have listened to one too many safety instructions done by these airlines. At first, I’ll sit up to truly listen but the more flights you catch, the more cliché they all start to sound, don’t they? (Don’t be like me, though, listen.)
Montreal is one of the most beautiful cities in Canada and there’s so much to love there. Today on the blog, I am sharing some of the things you can do in Montreal and giving some insight into the city which I like to refer to as “Canada’s Paris”. Planning to visit there soon? Definitely stick around.
We recently celebrated International Women’s Day, a day set aside to acknowledge women and all our accomplishments. The theme this year was, “Bold for Change”. As a woman myself, I couldn’t help but feel the love and the positive energy that was in full steam on that day and of course, thought I’d share with you all some things you probably didn’t know about women traveling the world.
Sometimes, I approach travel with a sense of urgency. You know, before a family and more life responsibilities start coming in and I am unable to jet off when I wish. While this might be true and I have always been a strong advocate of traveling while young, Jasmine’s story made me rethink it all. Her story is a good one and of the beautiful act of traveling with a child.
Travel changes you.
Essentially, anything you do that makes you slightly uncomfortable changes you. Admittedly, not everywhere you travel to will be life-changing. I found my change in Peru and it was the place that ignited my passion for travel.
First, thank you for visiting this blog today. Always so excited when people visit here because there’s so much content you could have been consuming elsewhere but you’re here now. Woohoo! If it’s your first time here, read a bit about me here.
Hola Puerto Rico! Epic adventures in the Rich Port. Puerto Rico was one of those cities that I had underestimated. It’s so funny because when you visit a few places you think you have seen it all. “Can the beaches be as beautiful as the ones in the Bahamas?” “Can the food really beat the awesomeness that is Conch?”
Do you live in Lagos, London, New York, Toronto or its environs? Then this post is for you. I am serving you travel destination ideas from all four touch points and I hope it inspires your next destination.
It’s a brand new year and an opportunity to turn your travel dreams to reality, this time. You said it last year, you said it in 2015 and in 2014 but it didn’t quite happen. Surely this year has got to be different, correct? Here’s how to make 2017 your year of travel.
Anyone else excited about the new year? I definitely am! 2016 is almost over and everywhere I look, resolutions, reflections, reviews. While a lot of people cringe at these types of things, I love it. Nothing wrong with reflecting and seeing how far you have come. Today, I am sharing my 2016 in travel: highlights, review and key lessons. I hope it inspires you to make travel a priority in 2017 and to live a full life. Enjoy.
It’s that time of the year! It’s holiday season and everywhere is literally lit up. How’s does it look where you are? Let me know in the comments. You know what’s interesting? You can either read this with excitement or annoyance. Super happy for you if you are excited but today, I am here for the ones who are not so pleased.
I never really liked museums as I thought they were kind of boring and just packed with history and stories that I could not piece together. It changed when I went for an art exhibition sometime this year and it dawned on me that I really wasn’t visiting the right ones. (or maybe it was just a matter of interest.)
Meet Cory Lee, a twenty-six year old traveler who navigates the world in a wheelchair. Yes, you read that right. His story is one of determination and bravery. I am really excited about this feature and I hope it gives you a lot of inspiration to follow your dreams as much it has done for me.
Hi there! Feels like quite sometime since I updated you guys. A lot has been happening lately but I will be back fully, I promise.
Ever gotten to a place and was shocked at how different it was from the idea you had of it in your head? Paris was that place for me. I had so many ideas of what Paris was and these stereotypes I carried with me when I eventually visited the city. Safe to say, I was in for a shocker. Everything I heard about Paris was wrong.
