Nigeria!

​ We circled around and finished our loop of Togo and Benin with a few days in Lome and a few in Cotonou, whilst camping on the beach. One night, we drove off to a nice restaurant we’d heard of, and I jumped into the back. It was dark but I noticed...

Togo to Benin

We spent another couple of days enjoying the beach and our new found traveller friends. We decided for our last night, we would get a roaring fire going and whip out the Dutch ovens to enjoy a stew with everyone. So we went to our local vegetable stall and...

Togo / Benin / Nigeria

Merry Christmas from Lome!

Day 98-101: Enjoying the Lome expat life Luckily Vivian was in town and happy to invite us to stay at her place. We still had to get there though and it was already 2.30 PM. Tomas read in the LP that they would stop issuing visas at the border at 5 so we were cutting...
