Lagos and Dubai Photo Diary # 1

I was away for quite sometime - work schedule, study schedule - all blah blah stuff. However I managed to squeeze in a few days of vacation. First to Lagos, Nigeria for a friend's wedding then to Dubai for some me time.

I vlogged (i use that term loosely) while I was away, but I have not had time to edit the footage, so fingers crossed that you see that ever. There are not very many Lagos snapshots I can share (I was attempting the vlogging thing for the most part). Here a part 1 of Dubai snapshot with sprinkles of Lagos.

This aquarium is one of the most magnificent things I have ever seen. Pictures do not do it justice.

So, I've been gone for awhile

You may have noticed the lack of posts in the last month. I was buried under a mountain of work and study for the better part of the last month , capped with a much needed vacation that ended being a vacation with sprinkles of work (it never ends, I tell you). I am back now and should get back to a more regular posting schedule next week. 

I got a ton of inspiration from the time off, so there are loads of great stuff in the works - including a facelift (and potential name change), a potential branch out and of course a photo diary from my travels - I took so many pictures, it might take me about a week or two to go through them but a photo diary is coming.

I am excited about it - hope you like it.

Cheers,

S.I
