My admission to a State University made me a somewhat traveler. From my house to School was a two hours journey which I do almost every week. My admission was a thing of joy. Running out from the computer village where I checked my result and straight to our house, in high spirits, my heart […]

Mind Transcending in Nigeria

Mind transcending The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. My journey of trillions of miles begins with one thought. It doesn’t matter where I am, all I have to do is to be at peace with myself and I can travel far, far away to a land where I am profoundly happy. […]

The Road Less Travelled I spent 4 years in Nsukka, a small town located in the Eastern part of Nigeria- Enugu State to be precise. I won’t forget the time I spent there in my lifetime- the rich brick red sand, the soft green hills, the everyday sight of elderly women riding motorcycles and of […]

Gratitude in Nigeria

2014-11-27_547730e44fc05_CYMERA_20140818_162100.jpg

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates vision for tomorrow- Inerspace. […]

“THIS INSPIRES ME TO REMAIN THE DEMIGOD I BECAME”

“THIS INSPIRES ME TO REMAIN THE DEMIGOD I BECAME” Each summer, before my college graduation, I had always joined the geology students in my school on their fieldtrips.

Travelling to an unknown place is surely exciting but it can also be daunting. There is fear, a feeling of uneasiness coupled with eagerness to know the unknown, especially if one is going to a place which is culturally very different from theirs. The language can be a barrier as can be the lifestyle yet […]

Travel through Print while home in Nigeria

 I am a contradiction. I became aware of this for the first time when I was asked at a job interview some years ago to describe myself. I am happy, I am sad; I am guarded and open all at once. I love change and look forward to it but I also hold on tight […]

Eye on the lighthouse in South Africa

Some of the time there’s a shade of light that can’t be defined or replicated, certainly not in the Instagram picture I’m about to upload unfiltered. Often it’s the luminescence of the water that makes me stop and look, as the waves etch their white foam between the blue – or is it green… or […]

Cabal, Ethiopia

Cabal Grandpa collected coffee beans like a jewel thief. He could find traders in all the nooks and crannies of Addis, from the roadside shops in Meskel Flower to the huts at the Simien mountain base where the lonely widow hoarded her beans. He would bargain ferociously and always paid much less than he should […]
