My 7th trip of the year: madness in Mexico

A busy, fun and relaxing week well spent in the heart of the sizzling and very Spanish city turned out to be a week certainly learned! Probably the worst bites I’ve encountered – those mosquitos were unruly! Thighs, wrists, legs, arms, FACE – woah.  ​ Several things brought me to Mexico: – my fascination of…

What’s a strong-distance friendship?

A  strong-distance friendship is a term I didn’t coin, but randomly said to one of my close friends, Marija, who lives in Switzerland. I think whether you live far away from or in a different country to one of your friends or not, there will always be distance in our friendships: Hectic schedules Family Work…

4 vital things I learned travelling by myself

1. I love my own company.   I get stuff done, I don’t have to wait on anyone for anything, and the whole plan of the day is down to me and what I want to do; where I want to go, what I want to eat, and more. There’s a massive difference between being…

The most expensive city break!

I had done bits of research into a part of Europe I’d never visited before, but heard so many great things about Stockholm, as well as many other parts of Sweden.   On a city break, I usually take £150-£200 which lasts me the 48-72 hours I usually spend there. For Stockholm, the spending money I…

My favourite place in the world 

“What’s your favourite country visit?” is often a hard question to answer. I’ve just returned from the glorious motherland, my parents’ original home, and experienced it in the best way I could imagine. It’s refreshing knowing that through my social media accounts, I was able to change ignorant minds and thoughts about Nigeria. The government…

5 things that make Lagos better than London 

I am indeed back in the motherland and probably my favourite city ever! 72 hours in the buzzing city of Lagos has showed me the many things London lacks in comparison to it: 1. The freedom to build a house from scratch and do whatever on earth you want with it. I met several people…

The Africa they will never show you!

Many of my photo posts from Ghana are a good example when saying the phrase ‘the Africa they don’t show you’ – often I received quite strange questions and responses when speaking about my excitement to spend my Christmas holidays in Ghana.   “Do people speak English there?” “Wow, there are beaches there?” Seriously?! Ignorance…

The time I met another travel blogger in the motherland 

Say hi to Tiffany Afia. A recent graduate from University of Kent, born in London, and has a big love for travelling. Rather than then falling into the dilemma of finding a job or further study after university, she decided to start a new life somewhere with familiar-ish surroundings. Thousands of miles away.  "They say…

The 5 golden rules when flying alone

So whilst embarking on my sixth flight and holiday of the year, I, Hannah Ajala almost missed my flight! It’s a long story. But these are important tips I learnt and will forever ensure to keep them in mind for future. Have someone to hold you accountable so you keep organised. Even if they’re not travelling…

The real food of New York!

I have received so many food suggestions from people of places I must go to for food in New York. I had done my research before travelling so knew I’d be good – the last time I visited in 2014, food was definitely on my mind. But I was pretty open to a lot of…

My Milan Birthday 

Let’s be honest, when we hear ‘Milan’ we usually think of the overly bourgeoisie lifestyle, where several tourists buy the most expensive things and lack gaining true culture of the city. Not this toutist!

What leaving the EU means for British travellers

I’ve travelled and revisited ten EU countries in total. Working in broadcasting, having friends from a law background, and being an avid social media follower has exposed several different views and opinions as to whether and why Britain should leave the European Union.
