Once in a while, it's important to take time off to play and unwind because problem no dey finish o! Since we belong to that school of thought, we chose to celebrate Nigeria's 61st Independence not in our respective homes, but far away in three interesting locations!
In the early hours of Friday, October 1st, 2021, we gathered as a team and embarked on a fun-filled getaway to check some items off our bucket lists.
Oh dear, it was fun! First off, we headed to Novare Mall, Lekki, where we settled down for a sumptuous full course breakfast at Spur Restaurant.
Bacon, fries, toast, baked beans, sausage, coffee, et al.
Afterwards, we clicked pictures and made some really beautiful memories. The weather wasn't looking good initially – it had drizzled earlier, sending us shudders of a rainy day and a failed vacay.
"Dear rain, not today please!"
Luckily for us, it was 'fine weather' all through.
After a couple of outdoor shots, we proceeded to click indoor ones too – who doesn't like bright lights and colourful backgrounds?
After series of clicks, photoshoots and paparazzi sessions at Novare Mall, it was time to step things up and escape to Destination 2 - Omu Resort, where we will have the fun of our lives!
We were ushered into Omu Resort with yet another dramatic weather - drizzles and clouds again!
...but not for long.
After checking in and wearing our platinum tags, the real action began!
With the means of a quick ballot, we made a split into two random groups - Team Legend and Team errhm... Never mind the name - and fiercely competed in a wide range of activities and games.
In what looked like a 'tug-of-war' of points, each team struggled to outshine the other, earn the most points and lift the trophy.
Oh, I didn't tell you we competed for a trophy? Now you know!
The competition began at the archery, with the representatives of each team desperately trying to hit the bull's eye.
No be small thing!
After series of misses and near hits, we moved to other interesting activities, competing where we could and going solo where we couldn't!
We went kayaking!
We showed off our shooting skills in the paintball arena!
Ahoy, have you met our latest US Marines?
We wanted an adrenaline rush, so we went quad biking!
Remember the three Biker Mice from Mars? Here they're! Throttle, Modo and... Wait, where's Vinnie?
Thank goodness! We found Vinnie cruising the east coast!
Then came a fierce rumbling in our tummies! We lost a lot of glucose and desperately needed it back, so we settled down for yet another meal - heavy but sumptuous.
With new bursts of glucose and adrenaline, we had a tug of war, played more games/competitions, and even dropped by at the Animal Kingdom to see Simba, Lana and friends - the Hyenas, Snakes, Chimps, Monkeys, Zebras, Gorillas.
It's high time you took time off Nat Geo Wild!
By the way, Simba's saying "Hi"
We had more fun and clicked more pictures still...
We clicked more pictures, competed and had much fun till our joints ached. No be small fun o!
That was not the end, as even more was awaiting us in Destination - 3. Can you guess where that was?
It was Lakowe Lakes!
Oh, dear! Destination - 3 (Lakowe Lakes) was a beautiful sight to behold with all its amazing greeneries, breathtaking landscapes and still waters.
Check am na!
While savouring the serenity of the landscape, we were suddenly interrupted by the gruff voice of a workout/gym instructor: "I will love to have a session with you guys!"
And off we went to 'shake body'...
After the workout session, we took a couple of pictures...
...and a little more!
And finally, *sighs* it was time for the inevitable - time to go after days from home. I personally hated this part .
Clicking a few farewell shots, we packed our 'kaya' and bid Lake Lakowe goodbye.
And that was it; thank you Lakowe Lakes!
We've had cool hangouts, retreats and dinners, but this Away Day? E choke!
Thank you for reading along.
