Travel diaries -Discovering Africa – Sierra Leone finally thoughts …

Like all holidays I wish my time at SL would not come to an end. I feel there is still so much to see and do.

I had so many first experiences on this trip and at times I was totally out of my comfort zone. Firstly … I like to plan holidays to perfection. This trip was not planned and I had no idea what I was going to face. My host wouldn’t even tell me what the light situation was like 😒. However, all this has helped in making this a memorable holiday. 

I really loved/ love how warm and embracing the people of Sierra Leone were towards me. As this is the first African country I have been to outside of my home ( Nigeria), SL and its people will always have a special place in my heart.*sob sob*

I can’t wait to see what the rest of Africa has to offer.  It’s going to be a long road and it may take yearssss but am motivated to continue discovering Africa.

This is my last look from Sierra Leone. Hope you have enjoyed this series of travel diaries as much as I have enjoyed writing it.  Feel free to ask me any questions regarding my travels.  

This is why I love layering… I transformed a basic shorts and cami look to a very trendy evening wear by layering a tulle dress over it .

Cami- Primark

Demin Shorts – Dorothy Perkins 

Tulle dress – Asos 

Shoes – Steve Madden

Travel diaries – City bike tour

Yes guys…. City bike tour.  I love becoming a total tourist when on holiday.  Learning the city or the country and of- course taking a ton of pictures.

This time, we did things differently.  I have always wanted to trade my car for bicycles.  So i dived at the opportunity of a city tour.  It was so great having the wind and.. rain ..(dont ask) beat on my face.

I literally cycled back to my youth.

The bike and a tour guide cost approximately £20.  I would recommend renting E- Bikes to avoid over working your leg when cycling up hill.

What I loved most was the ability to quickly hop off my bike, take some pictures and off to the next location.  No weather

Despite getting rained on, I was so pleased that I managed to keep up with the 3 hours city tour.

Your probably wondering what to wear.  I figured that it I was going to be seen riding a bike, I wanted to look by best.  I had on dda  full face of makeup, hair curled and the cutest autumn leaves print wrap dress.

Comfortable shoes is a must!

I would also recommend packing a jacket or some outer wear  so no matter the weather you can have a good cycle.

Thanks for stopping by.  I had such a great time with the city bike tour.  I would love to hear your experiences of a bike tour in the comments box below.  Next  I would like to try a segway tour.

Travel diaries- Bardot with jeans

As blazing hot as it is in the day times, the evenings are very chilled and breezy.
Unfortunately I didn’t pack much cover ups.
However, I think that Bardot tops are a good way of serving some shoulder sexynessssss. 
I wore my Bardot bodies with skinny jeans.  Simple and yet stylish.

Sadly my feet have been swollen from the heat and the flight… flats sandals and sliders are the only things that fit.
