Travel Archives: Niagara Falls

Hello & Happy Friday! May your weekends be less stressful than mine. I’ve been to Niagara Falls twice in the past 6 years. The first time I went, I was content to look over the railings and have the mist wash over me. In 2015 though, my excitement to ride the “Maid of the Mist” was…

Beach Daze: Panamá

Thank God it’s Friday, Thank God it’s Friday! *Chants and does a hop, skip, and jump*  I’m particularly excited because this marks my penultimate week of classes as a graduate student. I’m almost delirious with happiness; which will probably only last till its time to find a job. Haha! In March of this year, I…

How to Volunteer Abroad

Hi there, Happy Hump Day! If you’re anything like me, you might want to volunteer abroad for a number of reasons; maybe you enjoy working with people or you’re passionate about providing care, education, and resources. However, doing these effectively requires some deliberation. It’s not enough to go into a community, hand people clothes, food and…

Eating my way through NYC: Part 2

Hi & Happy Friday, May your weekend be less stressful than mine! So, this is probably going to be a thing. I go to New York City, eat great food, then tell all of you about it. If you feel like you’re getting the lesser end of this deal, you’re correct. No, I’m kidding. Grab a…

You’re Scared, So What?

I had never been an adventurous girl. As a child, I read books, I wrote short stories and dramas and I loved to be in my room. I went outside to play quite a bit because my grandparents made sure we got some sun + exercise and because staying indoors could get boring. I’d take…

Bienvenue à Montréal: Part 2

With this post, we bid au revoir to Montreal, till we meet again! If you haven’t read part one, you can click this sentence to read it before part two! So, I left with a cliffhanger in the last part. I said that the next day would bring one of the best experiences Mofi and I…

Wanderlust Wednesday #16

7 greetings to you, Yes, it sounds like something from Game of Thrones. Just…go with it. Morocco is the subject of today’s Wanderlust Wednesday! *Cue imaginary streamers* As part of their week-long vacation in this northern African country, a group of six friends traveled from Marrakesh to Agadir and made some exciting stops in between…

Bienvenue à Montréal: Part 1

Dear Montréal, Your negative temperatures left me sick for a good number of days, but it’s hard to dwell on that fact when I had a wonderful time with you. Next time, just so I have an excuse to go back, I’ll visit you in the summer. ∗∗∗∗∗ Montreal has been on my travel list…

A fitting goodbye.

Let’s send off New Orleans from the blog in style, shall we? I’m closing the chapter on NOLA for now, but it shouldn’t be long till I’m back on the city’s streets. For our last night in NOLA, we went out to Saenger theater to watch “Dancing With the Stars Live”. If any one of you…

How I Travel.

Hi there! Now, this is a story all about how…I travel? It doesn’t quite work with the “Fresh Prince” melody but I’ll  go with it. Since I started a blog, I’ve been getting questions about “how I travel”. These questions come in various ways but the theme is usually the same. Before I started traveling…

Garden Variety

Day 2  I’m up, but my alarm hasn’t gone off yet. I close my eyes to try and induce sleep, but my brain has different ideas. The sun woke up hours ago, so it’s my turn. I say a quick prayer and roll over to the edge of the bed to glance at my phone…

Eating my way through NOLA: Part 2

Hi there! The city of New Orleans just celebrated Mardi Gras, a huge street party that reminds me of the Christmas carnival we have in Calabar, Nigeria. I visited New Orleans a few weeks before Mardi Gras, but even then the city was ready with decorations in the green, purple and yellow colors that are synonymous…
