Sandymusings got nominated for Sunshine blogger award🥇

Hello lovelies, how is your week going? Mine is absolutely quiet with a lot of self communication. It’s very necessary for mind building as reading books could be of great help too ☺️. I woke up one morning to see the nomination from a wonderful blogger who has spent so much ink in dishing out adventurous travel stories of beautiful places he visited in Nigeria.

Still with the interest of changing the name of the website, Sandymusings has developed a thing for portraying Africa lifestyle which has attracted a lot of readership both national and international. We love everything lifestyle 😃.

Once again, thank you for the nomination and am super excited to share lovely updates of your blog 😊.

I would love to take a trip to Denmark 🇩🇰 I want to visit the Faroe Island where I would love to see the extremely dramatic Coastlines. It has such a beautiful site in pictures ☺️.

Q7. What is the longest you have travelled continuously for without returning home?

Q8. Can you share the best and worst meals you’ve eaten and where?

The best meal I had was a local Yoruba dish which is popularly known as Amala and Ewedu soup 😋 in Lagos state. What made it so interesting was the garnishing around it. My worse was another local food but this time, it’s a snack. The locals call it “WARA”. I was told it was made it of the milk of a cow 🤦🏾‍♀️.

Q9. Name one of your most cherished travel moments? Share a funny/memorable story if you don’t have any.

i was rushing down to Ikeja, Lagos state, for a seminar one faithful morning when I got into a public transport only to discover so many eyes staring at me. This got me so worried that I had to keep a close check on my face through the screen of my phone but I could barely see anything because it was a bit tinted. When I got down from the bus, I realized that my hair wig shifted a bit from my hair and made it obvious I was faking my hair 😅. I was so embarrassed 🤦🏾‍♀️.

Q10. What is still on your bucket list?

To build a strong network where Women can create wealth to help build their financial esteem and create wealth.

Q11. What “life lesson” do you have for everyone based on what you’ve learnt so far?

Life is so different from the classroom world and the sweet tales told by our parents. Most times we can get broken and knocked down but we must learn to stay tough to give it another blow but this time, we hope to break the defense of the walls.
