Lagos, Nigeria

My Father and Mother’s home land! It has been 5 years since I’ve been back and 4 since I have seen my grandmother so this was a trip that I was looking forward to. Being back in Nigeria allowed me to see the changes and growth in Lagos, visit some family and soak in the…

Kalakuta Republic (Fela Kuti) Museum

Montserrat Monastery Day trip

Prior going to Spain I looked for other places we can go to outside of Barcelona; pretty much wanting to get as much out of this trip as possible. There were so many options: a day trip to Madrid,  a full day trip to France, etc; but because this was a trip with my mom…

San Juan (Post Hurricane Maria)

Los Angeles, California: Birthday Edition

We’ve been long overdue for a girlfranns trip; so what better occasion to have one than my birthday! It was my first time on the West coast. I’ve only been wanting to go to LA (and Cali as a whole) since forever. The only thing holding me back was that dreadful flight; but I’m glad…

Weekend Getaway: Philly Edition

Sometimes you just need a little break from your normal surroundings. Over the last couple of months I’ve been juggling work, studying, classes and trying to make time for my personal life. So a break from my normal routine was very much-needed. Philly is so close to New York (1.5 hour drive) that you could actually…
