Do you school in Europe.

When I had a European residence card I used the opportunity to travel almost the whole of Europe.

You should explore as much as possible. These are memories you will forever cherish.
Exactement! 6 countries and counting.

There are threads in the Travel section that answers your question.

A tourist visa is not just about the cost, it is showing if you are actually going for tourism or using it as an escape route.

You live in the tropics (the red portion of the map below). The sun shines perpendicular to the ground 90% of the year
OP went above this region. The Sun shines at an angle. It is never directly over your head.
Also, Nigeria is below the Sahara desert. Wind from the Sahara carries dust particles.
All the dust is in the air 24/7.
OP went to a region away from the wind of the Sahara. No single dust in the air.

Thanks for taking time to explain this, just confirms what I've always wondered..seeing new roads in Lagos with a heaps of sand by yhe side next to the pavement. All the same our cities can be cleaner, afterall there is Rwanda

After exploring the city of Lyon, it was time to move on to the next destination - Geneva, Switzerland. The distance between both cities is about 2hours 30mins by road and i got a deal of €9 with Eurolines which was quite good.

The journey was actually one of the best i have been in, because of the beautiful sights along the way. Everything was just so structured and pleasant to look at, even the bushes. It was so arranged.

I got to Geneva by 8pm and took a bus to my Airbnb accommodation which is close to the United Nations Office.

Picture: On the road to Geneva from Lyon. I bet that is somebody's village
sorry to ask, plz do dey have local gov't chairman over there??

And how did you go about it?

It is the schengen visa. It gives you access to 22 countries that have signed the schengen zone agreement. Any visa being issued by any of the countries in the zone is a schengen visa.

Well, if you read the Bible, it's only Egypt and Ethiopia that was mentioned as far back 5000 years ago.
Basically implies that Even though Nigeria and other African countries were physically existing, it was more of unpopulated
bushes

This area got populated fairly recently by people just migrating/wandering about without any particular interest in building anything.
As you will notice, there are no horses or donkeys in south Nigeria. That implies, no form of transportation.
but Moses and Pharaoh were firing Horses up in Egypt with even Chariot sef.

France is modern day Roman Empire.

They trekked in Southern Nigeria

I have been to Geneva, Switzerland. Uts a very nice place but very expensive. However, there are some cheap hostels you can stay in to cut cost.

When I went in 2007, it used to require its own Visa but from 2008 you can access Switzerland with a schegen visa.

Yeah the city is just too expensive for my liking..... I guess, it is due to all the top international institutions located there.

But which would you prefer; "babe, let's go spend this summer in France and explore the beautiful cities" or "babe, open Google map and let's explore the beautiful cities of France from our living room"
I prefer babe, go and spend this summer in France and explore the beautiful cities while I open Google map and explore the beautiful cities of France from our living room and then we chat on whatsapp so I see you in those beautiful cities grin grin grin

Sir.... we are not younger than Rwanda, Singapore and even though we're bigger than mushroom EU countries like Romania

With countries like France, it's obviously an unfair comparison but we still need to up our game.

I'd be glad if you can sum up everything you spent especially on accomodation. I'd love to try this soon
Enough of all this, I beg!
Change starts with your humble self.

Are your good self trustworthy? Can people entrust you with their money/ belonging and they will have peace of mind?

Meanwhile I wish to do a PhD at the Graduate School of International and Development, Geneva. Cus it is a specialized institution for International Relations/Politics coupled with the fact that many international organizations and research centres are located in the city. But too expensive.
