- Screen And Substitute
So, you want to go skinny dipping in a pool on your trip to Enugu, What you can do is check in at the Vinbecca Hotel and Bar which is less than N5,000 ($11.00) per night and a great hotel to spend your stay in the city despite the lack of a swimming facility, and then when it’s time for your body to wade in the sun reflected waters of the city, take a walk down to The Gate Luxury Apartment sit at the pool, snap your fingers at the waiter to get you a drink, and swim till the sun goes down.
- Use Available Public Transportation
While in the city of your destination avoid the temptation to go about in Uber or a cab. Hear that sound? That is the sound of hard coins dropping onto the pavement every time you hail a cab. Talk to locals, ask for directions, enter a bus, or ride a camel if you are up north. Your account balance will thank you.
- Don’t Travel Alone
Traveling with a partner helps split the cost. Hotel rooms especially. No, you cannot lap your traveling partner from Abuja to Lagos.
