My first year anniversary is coming and you know what they say about the first year of marriage, lol, thank God we have made it past the first year. We made a pact when we were about to get married that we would always take time to celebrate the “small” victories in our lives no matter what.
We decided to look into going on a vacation in Nigeria and it was very interesting to find out that there were a lot of places you can go on vacation here in Nigeria. It came at a time when we wanted to change the look of our home. I had already gone to the Sandtex Experience Centre along with my painter and picked out everything I was going to need, so it was a good time to go on a vacation.
During my research, I found out that people even come from different parts of the world to visit these places. So I decided to share with you a list of vacation spots in Nigeria that you can visit too.
