Happy New Month Everyone! Today I am going to talk about the importance of visiting or going back home!
I seem to be talking about Africa (well Nigeria) a lot lately, which I believe is not spoken about enough!
Africa is my motherland.
More specifically, Nigeria is my motherland and although I was born in Britain and many would say that I am British, I will always be a proud Nigerian. Africa is always overlooked as a travel destination why do you think that is?
If people do visit Africa it is normally countries like Morocco, Tanzania and South Africa. These countries, of course, I’m sure are amazing and whilst I have been to Morocco and the other destinations and are on my bucket list of countries to visit, it still bothers me that Africa is the world’s second-largest continent with 54 diverse countries, estimated to have over 1500 languages; it is still not visited compared to other continents in the world.
The top African countries for me to visit would have to be my motherland – Nigeria. I try to visit Nigeria at least every two years and in the last 6 years have kept to my promise. I think it is very important to go visit home, especially if you can go everywhere else around the world!
I want to visit so many other countries in Africa because it bothers me that people think it’s not a place to visit. I want people to see Africa through my views and see that Africa is a great travel destination to consider, to also dispel the stereotypes and misconceptions that many still believe. Yes, there is poverty in Africa, but there is also poverty in every continent in this world. There are so many great things in Africa, from the mix of modern and traditional, the amazing beauty of nature and the many diverse and inspiring cultures. Don’t miss out on all this greatness.
When was the last time you visited your Motherland and if you haven’t why not?
See you soon
