Personally I have not yet traveled out of the country as am still waiting for the lord to bless my hustle.

If you have travelled to any civilized country then tell us your experience the day you wanted to travel overseas for the first time. How was it? Was there any challenge? Were you HAPPY? Was it a fun experience?

How did you feel when you arrived your destination?

Let us know how it was.

It was exciting really. Before I boarded, some immigration officers wanted to play smart, thank God, I had all my docs with me. After entering the plane, I couldn't locate my seat, lol. I later did sha. When I arrived at my destination (a country in Europe), I was flabbergasted by the high number of white people around me. Shuo, no be small thing oh. The place was cold, beautiful and colorful all at the same time. It was like a dream. Totally different from Naija. But now I don't notice the difference anymore.

I said to myself, "Now I understand why these people are ahead and don't carry religion on their head, but technology."

The entire country was tiled and it looked like a paradise. Anyway, I cried when I recalled the type of dirty zinc I saw when the plane lifted at Lagos airport and the ones I saw in the new country.
Shame! Angry!

. I miss home and couldn't sleep so I went clubbing and returned to my hotel with an Italian, she make a comment about Nigeria,i wasn't please with it,I stood up UnCloth and she was expecting me to do the deal, I told her I am way above her league(too classy to take shit) I call a cab and walk her to the door like a calm and gentle Nigeria. Next morning she offered me a business deal which I accept with conditions, sadly a Nigerian I help run away with my passport and dollar.

I think most Nigerians would feel shocked by the huge difference in environment when they go abroad.

It was winter season in the Netherlands.
Immediately I alighted from KLM at their famous schiphol airport, I said to myself...
Welcome to the real world!


If you never travel out of Naija before, you're still on a looooooooonnng thing!
Even if na Ghana, try visit.

That thing made me depressed. Nigeria is not backward — we are the word before backward. What is it? Ape-ward. Other African countries may be backward, but we're not qualified to be backward — that is way too advanced for us; we are an ape-ward nation.

Great experience.
Busy taking pictures with my friends n family.
I cudnot sleep a day to my journey.
Entry the plane is a dream come tru.
Entry London is amazing.
Beautiful environment.
The cab man drove me to a hotel @ Chelsea cos I arrive there in the late hour of the night.
Had a nice chicken and wine for dinner, later went to bed.


5a.m Nigeria time, I heard my senior sister shouting my name (Jide jide Jide Jide Jide). Don't you no is time for you to wake up and wash the plate.
Bros I wake up and find myself on my bed @ our house in number 3 Egbeda Street, Oke-Ado area, Isolo.

I felt wowed by what other countries have built and I was looking for people with two heads who built these infrastructures. I couldn't see any two-headed people and I wonder why our case was different. When I came back especially at MMA, I was depressed! Since then I have been to all the continents except Australia and South America. Currently in North America!

You'd appreciate the fact that you're not in Nigeria. Nigerians have a certain mentality that typifies most of the ghettos and average places. You simply can't miss the difference.

However, that roads are bad, no electricity etc... no be everybody dey experience am for naija o!
If you live in the better parts of certain cities in Nigeria, the only major difference will be the foreign faces and weather.

What's tha business?

Moving to the UK didn’t really know what to expect, I just had dreams and desire to change my life fortune. So when I landed at Heathrow I got my first scare when immigration told me to step aside after asking me why am I in the UK and who am I coming to see. Told them I’m not coming to see anyone but moving permanently to live with my wife (now ex) and they requested for her number and I gave. Then asked me where she is I told them she’s waiting for me at the arrival lounge. They delayed me for about 30mins but throughout the entire time I acted unworried coz I knew cameras were on me to observe my countenance.

Was just playing music with my Beats headsets and nodding my head to the rhythms, but I was worried inside me. I travelled with a residence permit and had all the confidence in-between the worries. So they later let me go and on getting at the arrival lounge saw madam and my brothers waiting for me, immediately I stepped out at Heathrow cold almost blew me off coz it was December period.

I was excited but the airport experience almost destabilised me. Sha thank God, my fortune has indeed changed forever. Now a naturalised citizen with a decent job and with an even promising future. No regrets whatsoever. The environment was a sight to behold. Nigeria would have killed my dreams.
