My Holiday to Nigeria

As some of you may be aware I went on holiday last month for 3 weeks to Abuja in Nigeria with my mum, sister and close friend Andree. This holiday was well and truly needed by the whole family and we had a great time and I can't wait to go back very soon (even my sister loved it and she was hesitant about going away for so long). Despite being a Nigerian this was my second time going to Nigeria and I was excited about going to Abuja as it would be my first time there. Abuja is way more developed than some of the other parts of Nigeria which was nice as we went to the cinema & clubbing like we would do in any other country.

My sis & I wearing our customised Ankara dresses for a wedding. We went to the market to a lady who made our dresses for us in a day (I love how fast they are out there).

I could live on this forever: Fried rice & Jumbo Grilled Prawns with Pepper Mmmm

Andree & Lil Sis

Abuja from the sky, off to another city

Whilst in Abuja I did nothing but eat suya (bbq seasoning with pepper & other spices for meat/chicken), jollof rice & fried rice out there and drank their fanta like it was water. The only problem is that the fanta in Nigeria is so much sweeter than the UK it should be banned but I LOVE it!! We also met some great people out there who took us out and showed us a good time, so thank you for that guys.
