Firstly,  visiting Nigeria cannot be equated to visiting any other country. One needs an open mind and maybe, some blood pressure tablets.

My trip to Nigeria was not my normal touristy trips, my very good friend T was getting married. I was definately not going to miss her special day and a chance to wear traditional clothes. Two very important purposes to visit this well known country.

Getting to Nigeria was a bit of a hustle in itself…being that I am a last minute person as well as the requirements that were needed. I had to supply invitation letters, 6 months bank statements, yellow fever vaccination card, addresses of my friend’s family where i would be staying e.t.c

** The Nigerian Visa has been the most expensive and time consuming visa I have ever applied for **

** For anyone wanting to visit this beautiful country, please apply for your visa in advance!! **

Ok, time for photos -》-》

Nigeria is known for beautiful African materials… I just had to go to the market ?

A normal day at Lagos Island Market

I was in Lagos Nigeria for approximately 2 weeks… one thing that was hard not to notice was traffic and crazy driving…as a pedestrian, it was your job to assume that all the drivers were planning to kill you..that was their ultimate task….because I really think they were!!

I will definately visit this country again. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it to care free  travellers.

It was such an adventure… I will be blogging all about the wedding next???
