I decided to walk the talk and create my bucket list. You’ll remember that in my last blog post on how to travel without leaving your house, one of the things I talked about was creating a bucket list. [gallery size="full" ids="1335,1636,948"] What’s a Bucket List? A Bucket list is a list of places to visit and things to do before die you leave this world. A few people have coined other terms such as a “Best Life List” or a “Living list” and this just means a list of things...

Who would have thought the entire world would be forced to take a break in 2020? Definitely not me! At the beginning of the year, I shared my 2020 travel plans and goals and even started saving towards them. Well, it’s April and with a lot of lives lost to the COVID-19 virus, the wisest thing to do at this moment is to stay home and just stay safe. But what about the Wanderlust Geng? How can we stay sane while staying at home? Well, we travel! Not physically but through...

Travel is not cheap, don’t let anybody try to tell you otherwise - Jadesola, 2020. Have you ever looked at my blog or travel photos and wished you could actually go on a trip, somewhere, someplace? That wish is called wanderlust and I have a couple of affordable Bourgie Travel group trips to help you fulfil those wishes in 2020. While I didn’t do a recap of my 2019 (I know I should have done it), I visited a number of new places and revisited places that are so dear...

I explored Northern Nigeria during the April Easter break and it still is one of the most memorable experiences I have had in 2019. Since it was a Bourgie Travel tour, I was the resident Travel director and handled everything related to logistics. I also had the best travel buddies - Frank, Asia and Favour (I left notes for y'all at the end of this blog post). L-R Favour (Slay Queen), Jadesola, Frank Ugo (Beyonce's number 1 stan) and Asia 1 of Lagos While this tour took place months ago, my...

. It all came down to this moment, 2019 Chale Wote Festival was the sole reason we travelled across West Africa and it was finally here! We timed the last few days of our journey to coincide with the last days of the 2019 Chale Wote festival and boy was that a good thing (here’s where you stan my tour planning skills). Before I go off on how interesting Chale Wote was/is, let me explain what it is: Chale Wote is an annual street art festival that takes place in...

We took on a daunting task when we decided to travel all the way from Lome, Togo to see some amazing destinations in Central Region, Ghana by road. In retrospect, we were supposed to leave Lome early, but some people (please refer to their names in previous blog posts) decided to go shopping on the same morning we were supposed to leave town. The worst part is, they bought the cutest pants so they could twin at Chale Wote and conveniently forgot to buy for me. Yes, I’m still...

Day 3 was all about exploring Lome, Togo, the innocent-looking city whose major highway runs along the coastal line. For the most part, it felt like we were in an extension of Cotonou, Benin Republic as the city layout looks the same and they also speak French. We set off from Ouidah early in the morning and spent about 2 hours on the road. It was a smooth journey and we all slept off for the most part. Benin-Togo Border Crossing  The Hillacondji border crossing was also easy. We had to come...

I took a trip across 3 West African countries - Benin Republic, Togo and Ghana with a few friends and I am writing about my experience in parts.

The second part of my West African Road trip diary has all the details about transportation, accommodation, and food. Transportation Before leaving Lagos, I read a lot of blog posts talking about stressful the border...

I left Lagos on this road trip to Ouidah, Benin Republic, then Togo and Ghana with 3 of my friends, Nkoyo, Moyosore and Rachel. Our ultimate destination was the Chale Wote Street Art Festival in Accra, Ghana, but we decided to make an adventure out of it by stopping over and exploring 2 other West African countries. Over the course of the entire journey, we visited 3 countries, 4 major cities and spent 8 days and 7 nights. Preparing for the Trip To travel to most African countries, you need...
