    I have been following your blog early last year January, but I am low key reader, so this year I decided kick my travel plans, firstly I want to appreciate you for responding to me on Instagram with handle @_eddybaba I never expected the reply but boom I saw it. So this year my first trip is Togo, Rwanda & Ethiopia. Amarachi God bless you. I want to be fact of your travel term. My dream coming through

    • Thank you, Emmanuel. It’s great to connect with you. I also plan and hope to visit Rwanda this year. We’ll see how that goes. πŸ™‚

  7. I love your blog! I learned so much. Thank you for the information ❀️

  8. So lovely reading your story, and you’ve been to quite a few places and done things which are still just distant future items on my bucket list. Local travel is very rewarding so I’m glad you write about your local adventures too. I think too many travel bloggers get caught up with only showcasing far distant lands when tourists are visiting and appreciating the country which is right under their noses. It’s nice learning more about Nigeria through you. Take care, and visit Jamaica soon if you can! πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, Rochelle. I agree with more travellers and bloggers showcasing their home countries. I hope I can visit Jamaica soon. Definitely going to explore beyond the resorts πŸ™‚
