10 Amazing Trips Every Nigerian Should Take In 2015

Nigeria is filled with fun activities that are now routines. The happiest moment in our lives is when we are free from doing our routines. Hence, the best thing to do is to travel, visit and explore places we have never been, experience different cultures, smell and have a taste of delicious foreign foods.

Richard Burton once said; “One of the gladdest moments of human life, methinks, is the departure upon a distant journey into unknown lands. Shaking off with one mighty effort the fetters of habit, the leaden weight of routine, the cloak of many cares and the slavery of home, man feels once more happy.”

Why not make the best out of 2015? Be happy, pack your bags and head to one of these destinations. They are notorious for unique architecture, amazing attractions, delicious cuisine, fashion and art, beautiful landscapes and they have a great number of World Heritage sites.
