My Favorite Destination of 2016


2016 is the year I moved out of my comfort zone and decided to take a lot of bold steps.

On Travel, I got to explore a lot of new destinations, in short almost all of the places I visited were novel to me. Two destinations stood out for me this year and they gave me the best travel experience ever since I caught the travel bug.

First up is:

Togo
Togo is one destination I didn't expect much from but this beautiful West African nation blew my mind. Togo was one of my biggest travel oversights coming into 2016, and I’m so glad I made the trip happen.

My favorite highlight of Togo was chasing the Cascade de Womé (Womé fall) in Kpalimé. I was equally wowed by the Togolese people and their warmth.

Next on the list is right here at home in Nigeria and it is also a trip to a waterfall, the Owu Waterfall. 

It took me a long time to finally visit this waterfall and it was so very worth,

  9. Oh wow, you've put Togo on the map for me now, I really want to go! Top destination of 2016 outside of Nigeria was Montenegro for me - simply stunning and postcard perfect. Within Nigeria, I will say Erin Ijesha. I was completely blown away by that waterfall. *Swoons* lol
