Hi guys, happy weekend. Hahaha at my title. Needed to pack as much gist into the title.
Lemme just say FIRST that THIS IS NOT A SPONSORED POST.
I still don’t take ads, free or paid for. At least not yet. So please don’t send me. Thanks.
A couple of months back. my FAB sister Kemi’licious,
a travel agent and CEO of Le Voyage Travel shop did this series of BBM updates on vacation spots in Africa and I was just wowed that some of these beautiful places were right here in my Africa. Somehow we have been brainwashed into thinking that all those exotic vacay spots are outside of Africa only.
Heck, I didn’t even know Zanzibar was in Africa. Just imagine that. I followed the updates and knew I wanted to share it here. Fast forward to this week, I ask her to collate them and mail to me so I run it on my blog and promote her Agency too. She agreed. I have her contact at the end of this post so please holler if you have questions.
I love to travel. I love to pack up, hop on a plane, take off, land and unpack. But I have not had many opps to travel as much as I would love to because… money. So I dream it, google it, enjoy pictures and come back to my room in Nigeria lol. But hey, these locations are not expensive at all, all are visa free or visa on arrival at the airport, return tickets are cheap ditto standard hotels. So hey, what are you waiting for? Most of these locations are PERFECT for honeymoon and family vacations but allow me to talk to the singles. Especially as a single working class lady who just wants to get away. Just round up a few of your friends and enjoy a girls-vacay-out. Hopefully, you meet a couple of cute Christian guys who love the Lord and are on a guys-vacay-out.
Hahaha!!! If there is a wedding, I better get an invite AND VVIP treatment- high table, chairlady’s opening remarks and all.
But really though, with 200-300 thousand naira, you can have a one week long vacation at any of these spots.
Just imagine you, your Bible and journal, a couple of Christian books and messages, by the seaside (Don’t forget your earphones please. BIG ONES) just taking in the beauty of nature, praying in the Spirit, catching rhema and just generally loving the Lord.
I have told Bolaji that I am leaving KingDaveed with him this Christmas and going to Dubai ALONE. From the look of things, I should be popping into one of these fabulous spots in Africa in addition just to have a spiritual get away. Yup ALONE too. Hahaha. Or maybe with Sapphire, Valerie, Priceless and Dumebi. Haaaaaa!!!!
We would surely be #DisturbingZanzibar Hahaha
