Hanging out with family and close friends has to be at the top of my list of favorite things. The laughter , catching up on each others lives and all the emotions that come with.
Somehow because of our busy schedules and programs ( and let’s not lie, the economy) these link ups happen less and less. Even for people in the same town as some of their family members.
Family Getaway maybe?
“Hoosh getaway? In this economy? My frehn, getaway!”
I’m pretty sure someone just muttered that under their breath. Sometimes when we hear the words ‘holiday, vacation or getaway’ we’re thinking big money, plenty load and overseas.
But wait though. What if I told you there’s actually a list of places here in Nigeria you and yours could plan trips to that wouldn’t cost an arm and a leg.
So, I took out the time to make a list of places you can plan the perfect staycation or day trip to with your fam. Plus booking with us gives you the chance to get your flights and hotel reservations at amazingly discounted rates!
SO CALL US MAYBE?
Ok, so I know you might be familiar with some of the places on the list. Honestly though, seeing photos or hearing about it does not cut close to the experience you get being there in person.
I can personally attest to this from my visit to the Lekki Conservation Centre. I was blown away!
