Once upon a road trip in Nigeria



I remember when I started doing my medical mission on high blood pressure and diabetes. Providing health awareness and education to entirely random villages😳...

I used to travel with plenty of excess luggage into Lagos... Spend a few days with my aunt.... Then get on the 1st ABC bus to Owerri💝 with my plenty load... Wearing iro and buba🥰 and an empty stomach.... (I never eat on road trips because toilet issue is not what i want to experience)...6/7 hrs later arriving in Owerri... I pick a taxi drop straight to a hotel...


As my time in Nigeria got shorter and shorter and my appointment got a bit stretched...I was forced into taking local flights😣... To meet up... See fear🙈... Unfortunately, Travel by road is a full day commitment...


Abuja reunion was by road from Owerri to Abuja. I could have kukuma met my friends in Abuja. But what's the fun in that.


But Nigeria has scenery ooo.


1st Road trip to Abuja was in an ABC luxurious bus with tv and toilet😍. They served Jollof rice. For the reunion, it was in a small car we hired. Which broke down when we arrived at the hotel🙆🏾‍♀️🙆🏾‍♀️🙆🏾‍♀️🙆🏾‍♀️🙆🏾‍♀️🙆🏾‍♀️🙆🏾‍♀


It was a trip and a half...


Enugu was by road ... Again a life time experience.


Lagos reunion was a weekend🤪, flight only...


Port Harcourt reunion looks like complete lockdown ... Even the hotel is not laughing... No extra mattress for squatters oo🙆🏾‍♀️... Coro,na virus and ungun known men

are finding our trouble....
