My mini lagos experience


Lagos in one word? Hmmm let’s see ….. Exciting ( I doubt the people living there might agree lol)

I did promise to share my experience in this Last post  and I never break a promise  (well most times lol).

Compared to Benin, Lagos is one crowded busy place, the conductors aren’t nice at all, did I just say aren’t nice at all? The bus conductors are the rudest people ever …no chill at all.
Don’t get me started bout the body odour in the buses at all . I almost died lol

I now understand why whenever I ask my friend to go pick a package up for me she always complains bout the distance. I never understood it (Sorry Naome).
Transportation in Lagos isn’t easy at all bruh I tell you, moving around involved entering different buses, a lot of walking and crossing the express sef (was legit scared the first time) and that’s not cheap.

Lagos is a beautiful place. I was really amazed by the architecture, buildings had stories to them and I loved it. Was too busy feeding my eyes didn’t take much pictures, didn’t want to miss one thing.  There was art everywhere and I felt at peace.

A lot of cool places to explore there so you wouldn’t get bored but then your wallet better be full.
Although living in that kind of bustling city would definitely bring about stress, it’s a city that never sleeps so you should be ready to stay woke lol (no not a typo).

Definitely can’t wait to plan another trip there cos all in all I enjoyed it.  I had the best host ever (hi Tonye) and her mum is just amazing.

Few pictures I had the chance to take,

Apparently this is the famous church everyone takes a picture of , so trust me to take one (Thanks Tonye)
Famous yellow buses in Lagos, don’t be deceived by the pictures lol they aren’t this fine.  In Benin Buses are red and yellow.
The side view of the church 
Took this at Euphoria maryland mall, the decor there is so cool, you should definitely check it out.

My “waka waka ” took me to Yaba, Festac, Victoria Island, Maryland,  Lekki ( Drive with Deeshe’s way cooler in person. )  and a few other places  I can’t remember *covers face*

I attended the bloggerpoint brunch and wasn’t going to put up a post bout it because a lot of bloggers already have, but as my father always says  everyone doing it doesn’t mean you’ve done it. So all the deets on the brunch would be up ASAP.  
Till then 
lots of love 
Sogie

    Lol. You're father is a wise man! Def put up your post biko. I've only read a couple of posts on it. And Lagos is a case on it's own – you love it and hate it at the same time! Glad you had a great time!

    Wow…I swear I always thought you stay in lagos.
    My lagos experience is always fun as its something that happens once or twice in two years…lol
    I usually use uber because the one time I entered the bus,i knew it wasn't for me.
    I would love to explore more of the mainland but staying on the island doesn't motivate me much thanks to the traffic.
    I really love the state and Balogun market would be bae when next I visit…so many affordable things there.
    Waiting on your post…

    Glad i finally got a chance to meet you. I'm also glad you enjoyed your short visit.
    Funny how i actually lived in Lagos almost all my life and never fully explored the state(maybe my parents were overly protective, maybe i was too lazy or didnt make too many waka waka friends) I think my parents and i guess i was always and still too lazy. I'm actually working on changing that before the year runs out.
    P.s- Great pictures and pls come back to Lagos soon

    1st of all, great pictures. Lagos is one hell of a crazy place but you can't help loving it. I've lived here for about 21 years now and I still don't know some places.lol. Introvert spirit at work. Seems like you had a lot of fun and you were in my hood(Festac) Hope to see you next time you come visiting.

    Just realising that the cathedral is a really photogenic building to photograph.
    I'm glad you had a chance to stop by at Euphoria, I really love that spot.
    It was nice to finally meet you 😀
