August and September are the two months that we term as the “holiday months” and that’s because kid’s are out of school on a break thus parents can take time off to spend with their children however this doesn’t make this the best period to travel because things are 100% on a high.
For travelers finding the right guide on what time period to choose or any other decision that needs to be made is very essential, however getting the information can be a little bit tricky. There’s a solution as an Instagram page with over 20000 followers has been opened to answer some of the questions that you need.
Grace a Nigerian woman living abroad opened her IG page to help travelers make the right decision based on her own experiences. Thanks to her a lot of people have been able to save themselves the trouble, here’s an example of what we mean as we would be sharing her Mauritius experience down below;
VISA FREE DESTINATION IN VIEW: MAURITIUS. (slide to see more) For me Mauritius is one of those visit once and never go there again type destination😔. And my experience at border control didn't help either, I spent 30 + minutes explaining to the immigration office what I wanted to do in the country. For a minute I almost felt like I was playing 21 questions with the officers, why are you here? Where will you be stay? Why do you live in Dubai? What do you do? 🙄. I was so angry because at some point I was the only person left at border control surrounded by about 7 Indian immigration officials. (Yes! Indian, there's a lot of people there with Indian heritage). . . After what seemed like forever they finally stamped my passport, I collected my passport to check the stamp, I saw 7 days boldly written and circled, I could almost see the condescending "just in case your eye is paining you" from the circle. Shoo!!!🙄, just 7days? The last time I had to answer this many questions , I was given admission to study a course for 4 years in the university😂😂. I finally bought a SIM card to call my friend and lament, can you believe this country that looks like a full stop on the map gave me 7 days😳😂. . . The ride from the airport to the hotel was about one hour, I was almost grateful to not see any beach/water (I was coming from Seychelles, my eyes don see water taya🙄), I met the warmest staffs at the hotel and my airport pickup was nice enough to stop at the supermarket to get supplies including bottled water(no expensive hotel bottle water needed😏). It's funny how little acts of kindness helps you feel better about negative experiences in a new place. Apart from the airport experience, my stay in Mauritius was perfect. Although for me it's not a place I will visit again. WHAT TO BRING 1. Passport (obviously😜) 2. Return ticket print out 3. Hotel booking. 4. Yellow card. 5. Light clothing/warm summer clothes. 6. As much patience as you can afford. Mauritius is a beautiful country but I doubt I will be visiting again. For more on what do in Mauritius and how to plan your vacation visit www.nigerianabroad.me.
You just don’t get holiday tips, you get other guidelines and options that involve moving out of the country as a legal immigrant.
