Book Review- A Country Of Extraordinary Ghosts by Onyeka Nwelue
September 5, 2018

If you have been following my explore Lagos series, you will notice that I’ve mentioned how uncomfortable I feel not exploring places. Together, we have been to Lekki Conservation Centre, Nike Art Gallery, Terrakulture and Apapa Amusement Park.

Few days ago, I updated my life ambition via WhatsApp. I want to be a traveler. In primary school, I wanted to be a doctor, in secondary school an accountant, I am currently studying to be a psychologist, now traveler? Girl, you’re not getting younger you should get your life together.

I know! I know! The thought was so random. Although, I’m not going to deny the influence of a travel agency I recently saw on Instagram on that decision. By God’s grace, I’ll progress to be a licensed psychologist by getting my Masters after my B.Sc. I like psychology. It’s something I’m happy doing. (School is stressful btw) Ultimately, I want to be able to travel to places on a regular.

I have considered the pros and cons of this thought. It is such a beautiful thing to see the world from various cultures, races and places. I love the idea. I’ve only been to Benin Republic and I was planning a trip to Ghana later this year but I don’t know the plausibility of that again.

Trip to Bene Republic

It’s one thing to want to travel, it’s another thing to be able to afford it. After I posted it, I really thought about finances. In the first place, nobody sent me message. I should get my grip on it. It makes zero sense to be in Bora Bora on my life savings then I’ll go back to start hustling again. If I really want to make it a reality, I need to figure that out.

I really do hope that I am able to incorporate it, somewhere in my life’s journey. Right now, if you inquired about my dream job. I would reply travel blogging. It might seem like the lazy option out and seem ‘unrealistic’ but I’m just projecting my feelings now. 

At the end of the day, as my friend Wura said, “Your imagination doesn’t cost you anything so why can’t you dream big”

Do you like the idea of traveling the world?

    Babygirl! Nobody have this life figured out, I have tried many things believe me but the good thing about life is that you can try as much as you like till you really figure out the one worth sweating for. All my life I’ve replied I love traveling to all what is your hobby questions.
    Here I am today actualising that dream.
    If you love it you can do it

  3. You know I recently thought about that but I was going to start with Nigeria. I’m yet to explore my own country. But yeah, I’ll love to travel the world. 😱 Thinking about it now sends a tingly feeling down my body. I really love the idea.

    And Yeah always dream. I’m a dreamer and I think it’s affecting me

    Yes yes yes! Travelling is not only culturally and socially enriching, it is personally satisfying. I have visited 6 African countries withing the past 5 years. I have met people from 40 out of the 54 African countries. Trust me, i have never come to love myself and Africa more. The inherent similarity present in the diversity of these nations is overwhelming. Strikingly, i didn’t find myself too different from the average South African, Ghanian or Ethiopian. If the world is our home, then find your bed in the deep ends.
