Tales From My Homeland!

 

December 9, 2018.

Lagos, Nigeria.

It was a beautiful Sunday Morning. I woke up very early to run some errands. I also wanted to avoid the long queue in most ATM cash points. I asked my Sister-in-Law to direct me to the nearest ATM Machine. My vacation was coming to an end and I needed cash for some vital purchases.

Sister-in-Law:  There are banks around the neighbourhood. But I think the nearest one is the one by the junction. I will suggest you leave now to avoid a long queue.

Me: Lol. Ok. I hope I will get cash because all these ATM appears to be for decoration given my experiences thus far in this country. Continue reading

Photo Of The Day!

 

 

 

My Photo Of The Day – Washington DC, January 14, 2019.

And yes, I’ve been in the States for the New Year Celebrations. And just yesterday the angelic snow came down in her gorgeous glistening posture and there was a spark of white on the entire landscape.

It was the perfect time to visit the White House again, just so I could take some more photos of the official residence and workplace of the President of the United States.

 

Peace and Love!

Happy New Year!

 

I wanted to start 2019 on a positive frequency here but hard as I tried to write something on my blog, my willpower failed me.

It’s been some weeks since I scribbled on this blog. My non-activity and lack of posts are quite glaring. And I have no plausible reason to stay away from posting stuff.

There are days I open this blog, scroll through the pages, read a few blog posts from other bloggers and simply just move away. It’s not for a lack of story to share or for lack of photos to post.

As a matter of fact, there are a chunk of my travel diaries to dig into and a truckload of photos of my trip to Nigeria to sort through and share for you, my dear friends.

But I guess, I lacked the strength to stay on course. My writing energy went to sleep these past weeks. No reason or excuse is good enough.  Perhaps, it was just a mix of everything that holds one from accomplishing their goals. I’ve been busy thinking about writing, writing a few stories and failing to share them here.

And then the Christmas season came

And now it’s 2019.

Oh wow!

Kindly, do not give up on me.

I truly hope that you do not give up on me.

It’s a tad late now to say “Happy New Year” since the year is already on its 15th day.  Regardless, I must still do the needful as I begin my presence on this platform again.

Better late than never.

To you, my dear friends

Happy New Year!

I wish you all an amazing 2019.

And I hope you’d experience wonderful moments filled with good cheer this year.

Above all, I wish you a healthy year, filled with abundant laughter, hope and joy.

Thank you for not giving up on me. 🙂

I need all your prayers, encouragement, motivation and love as you’ve always shown me. I need all the affection to take off nicely on this platform this 2019.

Let me reiterate it once again, that you all mean so much to me and I appreciate your ever bubbly presence here.

Thank you very much to each and every one of you.

 

*Virtual Hugs* to you all.

 

From my Heart to Yours,

 

Peace and Love!

Back To My Comfort Zone!

 

Ouch! It feels so so good to be here again! 

I am awfully sorry for my sudden disappearance from this platform. I’ve been absent here for a month now.

I’m so sorry that I didn’t hint you of my travel plans.

Oh yes, I’ve been away to my homeland and thought I could reach out to you all from there. However, life presents us with surprises and unexpected developments.

Sadly, I realized upon arrival in Nigeria that one major problem posed to the citizens was poor internet connectivity.  There is either low or no services at all and this disrupted my blogging routines and access to the world.

Did I enjoy the stark reality of this development? Not at all.

I felt cut off from the world.

I couldn’t function maximally and I was down for a few days as this reality dawned on me. However, I emerged from the gloom and bounced back to life so I could at least enjoy the reconnections with family and old friendships.

In spite of the few challenges, I had wonderful moments with my family especially with my mother who was so so delighted to see her daughter again after so many years.

I managed to pull through other frustrations because so many things have changed. There is a big difference in the whole environment. And I couldn’t fit in properly into the existing norms anymore.

Today, I feel so happy to be back to a clime where things work better.

I am back in Denmark. 

I feel alive again as the cold air welcome me home. It’s all wintry here. The grey sky and the naked trees are familiar sights that I’ve come to appreciate over time.  And even the harsh winter cold is magical and soothing to my body after the discomforting heatwave back in Nigeria.

It feels so so good that I’m home again. 

I am grateful and thankful to God for safe travels.

I miss you all. 🙂

 

Peace and Love!
