Heck Yes, Hell No! : Ultimate Tips For The Cross Country Nigerian Road Trip

Hey Tribe,

Tips for the trip.. See what I did there.ūüėŹ

Experience has led me to realize that Nigeria is really a great place to have a transport company. You would be shocked at the number of people that travel via road everyday.

I really admire my Igbo people that travel via land several times a year to the le hometown. Lagos to Anambra is an average seven¬†hour journey (and it’s just the first state after the Niger Bridge) while Abuja is about¬†eleven hours away. I appreciate that¬†there are people who travel every month, or week.

On the other hand, some people I know have never travelled past Ibadan from Lagos. For people like me who are simply not used to long distance travels, it can be either an adventure or a sordid bore. I think everyone would prefer the former, actually.

That’s what this is about..helping you make thevery best of your road trip!Read More »

Hey Tribe,

The previous post struck such a nerve within me, and I know it was kind of heavy-handed, so today, let’s be light-hearted! ¬†Do catch up of you missed previous posts.

I really do think retrospect is a great thing, and considering¬†Love and Romance in Post-Secondary school is very, very interesting. This is the period where you think you have found the love of your life in anyone whom you are in mutual ‘like’ with. Unfortunately, it¬†is also known as the period where we¬†could get the most heart-broken in your life mostly because¬†we are truly too young for the emotional uptake it requires.

When the person you are so ‘in love’¬†with does not even give you side-eye, e dey pain. However, when he/she gives you hope¬†and crushes your heart¬†to¬†baby powder and you’re trying to turn it to gravel, it can be quite¬†devastating. All in all, it is actually an amazing time to go through.

In my school, there was a great level of freedom of interaction.

Males were allowed into female hostels and vice-versa. There were mixed hostels. There was no curfew for residents. Classes were left open through the night to allow students read. It was pretty chill and let-your-hair-down-y.

You’d always see people at night and we had 24-hour stores open (perks of living in a hospital compound).

Majority of the people you’d see in the middle of the night were the ‘couples’. Continuously walking up and down, when all you could think of is your bed… to sleep, you’d wonder how they don’t get tired! LUTH/ CMUL guys totally understand me.

Love as an undergrad cum teenybopper can come in various interesting ways, these are just some of them. At the end of the day, its still all…Read More »
