Hey Guys!

Last week, I was  in Abuja for work. I decided to visit tourist attractions in Kaduna with my friends @marhoatumu and @taiofierce. We needed attractions that we could visit in a day’s trip. After researching, we narrowed down the attractions to 3 places (Kagoro Hills, Nok Village and Matsirga Waterfalls).

During our research, we didn’t see any review of Matsirga Waterfalls online which was mind boggling. But we were determined to be the first blog to review the Waterfall. We had to cancel Kagoro Hills because we couldn’t do all 3 in a day’s trip. One had to go, and sadly Kagoro Hills was chosen.

“The use of traveling is to regulate imagination by reality, and instead of thinking how things may be, to see them as they are.”

–  Samuel Johnson

Here comes another fantastic opportunity to be on one of our fun road trips. For those who haven’t heard about us, we are one of the guys around the country who are trying to change the face of tourism in Nigeria. Even though the task sounds like a huge burden, we have been trying our best to showcase the beauty of the hidden Nigeria that hasn’t been discovered by so many due to lack of proper information.

Hey Guys!

 

Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.

– Terry Pratchett

It is said that Tourism is the new “crude oil” in Nigeria.

In an attempt to possibly discover hidden gems and potentially new locations. We asked the good people of Twitter NG where in Nigeria they would like to visit and why?

The responses were varied and diverse, just like the rich cultural tapestry that is Nigeria. Quoted below are some of the responses received.

Pokemon Go – Part 1

, , , ,

So by now you are either playing Pokemon Go or you have heard about it. If you haven’t heard about Pokemon Go still, I guess you got to hit up Google.

You are in Nigeria and you are wondering if Pokemon Go is in Nigeria. I would give you two answers.

Short answer “YES” Pokemon Go is in Nigeria.

Long answer “NO” Pokemon Go is not supported in Nigeria.

You’re probably asking what I mean by this answer.

Sometimes when game companies release a game, they don’t release it worldwide making it only available in some countries. This doesn’t mean that you can’t play the game, it just means that you’ll have to jump through some extra hurdle to get it. But as we are Nigerians, this is nothing new.

Here’s how to jump through those hurdles  and start playing Pokémon Go in Nigeria.
