Emmanuel Kayode: Solo Travel-Puerto Escondido, Mexico
I recently made my first mini vacation trip out of the country to a place called Puerto Escondido, which means "hidden port" in Spanish. This name could not have been any more true, this place is very much a hidden gem. Since It was my first time traveling solo, my expectation for this trip was that I'll do a lot of sightseeing and have a lot of alone time. To my surprise and delight, none of these were achieved, which was exactly what made the trip more memorable.
Chinny Okereke: A Cruise to Bahamas
"If we were meant to stay in one place, we'd have roots instead of feet" The highlight of my summer was travelling/going on this cruise and it's only right I share this awesome experience for anyone. See, this was particularly important because my goals for Summer’16 was to travel as much as I can, go on crazy adventures, read new books and try out new recipes. My budget didn't permit the last goal, but that's okay I decided to go on a cruise to the Bahamas & as the diva that I am, I forced my fam to go with me. I'm gonna give some tips on how to make your trip an awesome oneeeee Okay here it goes:
Ore Dosumu: The Royal Caribbean Cruise – Allure of the Seas
I went on my most memorable vacation, so far, with my family over Easter 2015. It’s hard to believe it’s already been a year and best believe we are already making plans to return. This was each of us’ first experience on a cruise ship and if I’m being honest, I didn’t imagine that it’d be quarter as exciting as the experience I had. The cruise lasted 7 nights and we departed from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Checking into the ship, felt like getting on a plane. The full security and immigration shebang! You checked in your luggage etc. and they brought that up to your cabins after check in. Getting on the ship, I was astonished (syn. blown away, surprised, amazed, impressed)(excessive use of adjectives, in case you didn’t get it the first time)

Kunmi Coker: Barbados, An Island Getaway.

Lolu: A Nigerian in Cuba.
I went to Cuba for 3 weeks in December as part of a school mini term. Twenty-three people from my school went on the trip, which was partly organized by Havana Tours, a state run company for tourists. Almost all the businesses in Cuba are state run, though the government is beginning to give a bit of leeway for some private enterprises. But just a bit. Half of my time was spent in Havana (the capital) and the rest were spent in Santa Clara, Trinidad and Santiago.
