Every year, when the kitchen workload that comes with a Christmas 'party' in my house begins, I always make it a point of duty to tell my mum that stressing ourselves on this day is counterproductive because it's a holiday and to me, holidays mean rest. How nice would it be to just go out and chill or stay at home and sleep or better still, just not have any guests (too much?). Along with these thoughts and whinings is always this part of me daydreaming about how I'd make sure Christmas is much more different for me when I start a family of my own. One of the activities that always pop up, year in, year out is traveling to someplace fun to sightsee, relax and make new memories.
I honestly think that in one's lifetime, it would be fun to visit as many countries as possible but taking many many factors into consideration such as the fact that there are 195 countries in the world, how feasible is that and how many is actually 'many'? I however have a list of places that would make the perfect Christmas destination for me but in no particular order, let's cut it down to 5, shall we?

1. Greece: When I think of Greece, I think of a history so rich and buildings so ancient and picturesque that you literally gape in amazement. My interest in Greece was ignited while reading a book I love so much- Sidney Sheldon's The Other Side of Midnight- where he magically painted the beauty of Athens, the capital city of Greece whilst also describing how certain places there came to be. I definitely know that whenever I get to travel to Greece, that book goes along with me.
Fun fact about Greece: Remember Santorini and how it got the internet buzzing with it's aesthetically pleasing views? Yes? It's in Greece!

2. USA: Because, why not? I feel like even if you've traveled to 10 countries in the world and you haven't visited the United States of America, you're missing out on a lot. For those of us in this part of the world, America has always been the dream because almost every Nollywood movie we watched while growing up that involved an overseas scene always featured Flights to USA. There's the Hollywood sign to go see as well as the famous Statue of Liberty, Times Square, Millennium park et al. I could actually go on and on but I'd keep it simple. Extra topping? You could actually book Cheap Flights to USA to go see these places and more.

3. DUBIA: Who writes a top Christmas destination list without featuring the most popular emirate of the UAE? Definitely not me. I mean, you get to see the world famous Burj Khalifa tower (tallest building in the world). Pictures of Dubai scream opulence and class. I definitely want to experience some of that.

4. ITALY: Growing up, I used to think of Italy as a no go area because of the stories of people being trafficked there. I actually remember reading a book to this effect and it was quite graphic but all that is in the past now. I'm super eager to eat Italian food because I've read so much about it, see The Colosseum- one of the new wonders of the world and so, Italy is definitely a personal favorite.

5. PARIS: The capital city of France has always been what I wrote in all those parting notes we used to fill in Secondary school as my dream place and years later, nothing has changed. Hello, Eiffel Tower! Definitely a go-to for anyone who visits Paris because it is one of the most recognizable structures in the world! I read that it attracts nearly 7 million visitors yearly. I definitely want to be one of them!

Writing this post made me super dreamy and Nollywood movies aside, I'm almost sure that when I start traveling, I'd kick it off with a few Flights to USA. To be more precise, Cheap Flights to USA.
What destinations do we have in common? I'm guessing hoping there would be at least one
Which of these places have you been to?


  1. 195 countries in the world? There should be more joor,does that list include the "Lost city of Atlantis"? Lol I'm just messing around. I would definitely love to travel around the world,I believe it would be good food to my soul seeing other ethnicities and parts of the world,just another reminder that the world though called "a very small place" is actually much bigger than we can fathom, great read for this month of December and I wish you a very beautiful Christmas and a Happy new year

    P.S Manage the workload okay? You most probably always do it right that is what they need you.CIAO

Quick Life Update : The Abusive Relationship I Am In

I trusted him completely but he broke my heart and still is in the business of breaking it. His promise to always be with me Everywhere I Go was alas a lie. He said that only to catch my attention and make me his. He gave me mouth-watering packages that offered me less for more but it turned out to be a façade. I'm tired and frustrated. I can't carry out my normal routine with all he's been doing. I trusted him just this once and he disappointed me. I never should have promoted him from the zone I placed him in initially. I remember all the times I heard people complain about theirs and I was always relieved I wasn't in their shoes but guess where I am now? I guess that's what life does. Sit in a corner and laugh at you. Nice job. He looks so attractive on the outside but deep down, there's nothing exciting about  him. A big fat façade. I miss the things I could have been doing if I hadn't made the mistake of trusting him too much. His favourite colour is

Wedding Day Thrills : 6 Things I Look Forward to & 3 That I Don't!

Hey guys, I've not posted in a while. Isn't it nice how that screams consistency? Lol jokes. I promise to do better. I was watching TV the other day and came across this 'It's my wedding' program that showcases all the activities couples go through in prep for their wedding day. I remember being insanely attracted to all the Ovation magazines with wedding pictures when I was way younger.  I was constantly devouring the pictures and you'd think I'd grow up to become a bridal consultant or something close. Life oh Life. My mantra has always been 'I'm looking forward to my wedding day and not exactly to marriage' but who am I deceiving? Lol. I think every girl has their wedding fantasy kept somewhere close for easy editing and all so I thought to share some of the reasons I'm looking forward to getting wedded. •  Pre-wedding shoot : Some years back, this wouldn't have been on the list but with all these beautiful and also hilariou

For Times When You Go From 100-0 And You Can't Explain It.

This post title is quite a mouthful simply because I couldn't find something else to describe how I felt the day I wrote this. I've been in this situation more times than I can remember. It's always exhausting and annoying. I'll be gay, exuberant and then SNAP! I'm feeling down, irritated at nothing in particular and the rest of the day becomes gloomy. No, it ain't mood swing . Or is it? The most annoying thing about this predicament is when people start asking what's wrong and I can't come up with something genuine. The occurrence that prompted this post was the most 'interesting' one ever. Here's the detail. I was having an almost perfect day doing few things online that required me to write a little something about myself. I included "I'm a PhlegMel(Yes, I believe in temperaments)" after 're-looking' up the words in the dictionary to make sure they suited me. As I was to discover later that day, that was a wro
