i felt like i was in heaven...




...the silence and the cold winds.
the views upon landing...the night lights.


travelling outside Nigeria, Africa is an experience everyone must experience otherwise you have lived a half life.

living in Nigeria you feel this is it, e nor pass like this UNTIL YOU FLY OVERSEAS, A NEW JOURNEY JUST BEGINS ITSELF

UK at about the age of 22 for a visit. In high school, lots of my friends used to travel so I had built up this longing to visit the UK. Every moment from the point we entered UK airspace at about 5:30 am on a slightly drizzly day was special to me. i kept looking around, trying to see if I would feel any different, and I sort of did. The cold, the buildings, the food smelled great but tasted bland, played some football. Checking out the white girls. grin It was nice.

Loved every minute of it, including the return trip home.

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.
Hmmmm. You don't notice d differences anymore... Hmmm dere iz a fish inside dix ur story :/

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!

Wow. Oh God pick my call

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!
how can a whole country be tiled?

I refused to eat alots of meals and drink served in the plane, while the man seating right to me was busy taking red wine and other beverages,all my mind was at the destination am heading to.But during my second tripe hmmmm....i made sure drink every drinkable and even bought extra beer and wine hahahaha... But I used to be angry once am entering Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport Abuja bcuz everywhere will be full of dust and bushes..even when returning to nija last November I saw alots of cow when the flight was around 800 to 1000 feet above the ground... But it was really fun.How wish 60% of our youth can live nija to some European countries, I swear if they all come back to nija they will all be ready to fight bad leadership that is eating the country up.

So I travelled to the US for the first time Via turkey. When I was at MM airport one of the security personnel actually walked up to me and I guess she saw the excitement on my face. She asked "I can see how happy you are". Who wouldn't be happy. Prior to the trip I didn't sleep for 2 days just praying for the time to run faster��

Cold, I swear guys nothing can prepare you for how cold the UK is. Then I was astounded by the constant bright lights that never went out, clean environment, sane drivers and the smell of fast food and cigarettes in the air. Like everything just works you know.

The TV there was also better than at home, all the stations were in season 3 while Nigeria was in season 1.

White people can look so strange up close, even today I tend to stare and get anxious around white people like I'm in danger or something. But they are friendly, sometimes too friendly.

I was also glad that most people could finally understand me when I talk. grin

The plane ride was also fun, the part I always look forward to when travelling. cheesy
