Roaming Federal Capital Territory, Abuja

From the airspace of Federal Capital Territory, Abuja you cannot but notice how organized well planned Nigeria’s capital city is .

Touch down at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport and you would also see the rocky terrace, A drive through the city would expose you to good roads and a widely green landscape.

I had few days in Abuja and I wanted to see as much as possible. I just had to move around and see what the city has got and thankfully I got suggestions from my Instagram followers. I was at Millennium Park where I took a leisurely walk around nature on a bright afternoon. The park was so pretty and green and could serve as relaxation spots and location for a spontaneous afternoon barbecue hangout.

There is also a section of the park for children just in case you have kids, little nieces or nephews you are babysitting and have to keep preoccupied while you have a nice time.

I was almost going to slide down this, if not that the sign explicitly stated that it was for kids.

You can also view the famous Aso Rock from the Park. A monolith that houses Nigeria’s Presidential Complex, the Nigerian National Assembly, and Nigerian Supreme Court

I was also at Jabi lake where I had a pretty nice picnic in a cozy atmosphere with my friends. We also went on a windy boat ride around the lake and it was quite fun.

The day ended at the Arts and craft Village where handmade products are crafted for sale. I did little shopping like I always do when I travel as I prefer spending on experiences rather than things. I was however, able to get earrings and on return trip a nice leather cross body bag. findingae (1 of 1)-293

The prices at the craft shops aren’t fixed and you’d really get nice wares if you are Nigerian Yoruba from Ijebu and have good bargaining skills (just kidding). Just ensure you haggle well.
