Travel Nigeria

Rigata to Idu

Hey fellow bookies! How has your first 11 days in 2019 been? I hope you been breathing and readjusting to your work or school schedules with the holidays being over.

I want to share my 5.01.19 travel diary from Kaduna State to Federal Capital Territory, Abuja to Adamawa State. I travelled from Rigata, Kaduna to Idu, Abuja by train! It was an odd experience because I kept saying ‘we’re moving so slow’. But in truth, the journey was smooth and quick. I usually travel by road or air so it was new experience. The landscape was littered with dark granite deposits on sandy desert terrain, sparse sandy brown and green foliage. The train was air-conditioned and my seatmate was really cool.

We arrived at Abuja a few minutes after 2 hours. Then I had to roll my bags. (PS: I’m never packing 4 heavy bags on such a trip again.) Although, my seatmate helped me out with it. An uncle picked me up then drove me on vast, tarred express roads to the Airport. My blue, 55mins flight took me to the Yola International Airport.

I’m back to Yola for the Nigerian Law School 2nd Term. The end of Week 6 is here and we’ve finally been split into groups. I hope you’ve been enjoying the stories I’ve published so far in 2019. Scroll down to catch up.

Don’t forget to care for yourself this weekend!
