Akwaaba!

Every now and again I’d strongly suggest a break. It doesn’t have to be a grossly expensive getaway on the gold plated streets of Monaco, neither does it have to be as popular a destination as the likes of New York and  Paris. Every holiday is an adventure and a break from your comfort zone.

Two weekends ago, I was in Ghana chilling in the comfort of the Movenpick hotel and sipping on water (there’s an explanation for this) while my more serious counterparts wrote CFA level I, II or III exam. It wasn’t the most glamorous of holidays I must confess, but I loved that it was cultural, it was SO relaxing and best of all it was only 45mins away (excluding Arik Air’s waiting time of c. 3hrs in total)!

As you may already know, I am slowly becoming an organic junkie and this made Accra totally worth my while. Below are a few organic goodies I bagged in the space of my 48hr stay in Accra.

Twi Vocabulary:

Akwaaba!: Welcome

Etesen?:  How are you? 

Eye: All is well

Ps: I saw this 30 day water challenge on Instagram about 2 weeks ago and decided to part take hence the sipping on only water.

PPs: Any suggestions on my next holiday destination? My Dad is against my plans of Zanzibar

 

 

 

 

Once Upon a Sunny Christmas

It’s not difficult to get me in a good mood. My friends often tell me that I’m too easily pleased and excited more often than necessary. Given the aforementioned facts, you can only imagine the excitement that raged through me on Saturday, November 30 when my friends from Uni, Sarah and Mayuri arrived in Lagos, Nigeria with the intention of spending an entire week as far away from home as their minds only ever dared to travel.

You’d imagine that the cheerful warmth, sticky humidity and bright sunshine of the Nigerian Christmas differs significantly from the bitingly cold and pristine white of the British Christmas. So it was no surprise that a spell of confusion accompanied by a smile with disbelief covered Sarah and Mayuri’s faces every now and then. 

We spent endless hours stuck in traffic, several instances encapsulated in awe and countless moments drunk with laughter. Below are pictures once upon our Sunny Christmas….
