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.
Op wetin be your problem, wetin I want go find for abroad, I like naija die, only be say this disaster wey dey
Aso rock dey do me one kind.

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 never no I was dreaming grin.

My first was Ghana but in the sense of fun, UAE. Done 12 countries across Africa, Europe and Asia to date.

Each comes with its own experience.

Like someone already said, one amazing thing is how everywhere looks “tiled”.

I find the efficient transport system of UK amazing.

bf i came here someone told the last african shop here packed up because of lack of patronage.the food store was owned by a nigerian but nobody was patronising him so he ran at loss.but now with the way nigerians and other africans are here i guess if he opened the food store again he will get lots of customers.there lots of chinkos here though selling their wares.
Okay, I understand you now. African food remains a necessity though. Depending on my schedule, there's hardly any week I don't make good ogbono soup accompanied with dried catfish, bonga fish and goat meat here; taken with correct poundo. It is after eating it that I begin to reason clearly grin grin

See how people are just testifying ehn?
When will it be my turn to travel even if it's just for one day.
I just want to have the experience becos the way things are going, very soon, they will soon start asking for "how many years of experience abroad" during visa application.
But I belive I shall step my foot in America one day. How?...I don't know. When...I don't know?...where...I don't know but it shall come to pass

Lol I pay taxes ma’am, what has nigeria given me since I was born. I don’t trash Nigeria but y’all know nigeria ain’t a country, don’t mean any disrespect.
Of course you must pay taxes. All i was saying is, when you first entered the country you're resident in, those infrastructure you met were put in place by some people and not yourself. I'm a man like u, not ma'am cheesy That Nigeria doesn't favour you doesn't mean it doesn't favour others. Some would make it here while some would make it out there. It was from Nigeria here I was invited for a dinner with USA president inside the daughters of American revolution hall in DC. I've been travelling to America since I was in my late 20s , 2004 to be precise, all alone. Only 12 states I've not visited in the whole of America and I know virtually everywhere I've been in that country, European Union too, including UK. We are exposed too. Maybe the kind of recognition I earned today may not have been possible, had I stayed put overseas like my peers did after we graduated. Nigeria is a country, ok? The bad leadership issues bedeveling the country presently would be a thing of the past. America passed through same phase centuries ago. Rome wasn't built in a day.

Ghana first, no feeling. Since then, I have been to 13 other countries. Countries in Africa, Middle East, Europe and North America.

I need to visit an Asian country ASAP.

. 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 this happened in your dream

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.
bro please can we talk please. +2348115744705 that's my WhatsApp number. Am not asking to beg for money from you, I just need someone to put me through this travel things.

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.
its when you come to Nigeria for a visit again and you land in iyana paja heading to egbeda. That's when you will see the difference again

First time i travelled to Nigeria, as landed at MMA lagos the heat hit my face, in just few minutes i was sweating like a christmas Turkey. The whole airport smelt horrible, the toilet was filty with a brown 6 inches shiit starring angrily at me as if to be asking what da fu ck are you doing in Nigeria? no water to wash hands after using the toilet or flush. everyone was asking to be "dashed" something i even thought for one minute that the shiit in that toilet was about to demand for "dash" too the way it was starring at me. The noise was excruciating people screaming while hawking their various wares, defecating and urinating everywhere, The hotel was filty, No electricity, i was told that the generator isn't on, what?!! I yelled, generator?!! but however, above all i Enjoyed my 3 weeks stay in Nigeria. Nigerian women, food, weed and palm wine i enjoyed. grin i ve been to Nigeria more than a dozen times since then, in Nigeria if you are moneyd you are a King or queen.

This one no well at all grin. Your comment made me laugh out loud
