Sami Tunji: Life in transit

 Sami Tunji: Life in transit



My interest in travel started a long time ago. I have always wanted to move from one place to another, and I have lived life in a transit. Born in Karmo Abuja, where I did my primary school; moved to the outskirts of Abuja, precisely New-Nyanya in Nasarawa state, where I did my secondary school; got admission into the University of Lagos; got posted to Jos; and currently living in Ibadan. So I have always been on the move as the boy in transit, never staying for too long in a place. I guess adventure is my calling.

So I started living the dream fully around April this year, visiting about 5 tourist sites in Jos, before moving to other cities like Abuja, Ibadan, Enugu and Lagos.

I’m not sure what qualifies a place as top, but I have visited the Assop Waterfalls and Kurra Falls in Jos amongst other places. I have also climbed Sherri Hills in Jos. I have been to Erin Ijesha, Olumirin Waterfalls, Osun state and got to the seventh level on my first visit. I have been to the suspended lake at Ado Awaiye twice. In fact, I’m organizing a two-day outdoor fun camp there this December. I have been to Olumo Rocks in Abeokuta. I have been to Omu Resort in Lagos. I have been to Ngwo Pine Forest and Caves in Enugu. And so on.

         Always on the move


Anyway, I’m hoping to explore the whole 36 states next year as well as visit some African countries, at least 7 African countries.

I’m not really sure I have a dream destination, but I would love to stay in a house close to any Caribbean beach.

For now, I’m considering staying for at least 6 months in Barbados hopefully in two years’ time. Honestly, I won’t mind living on any Caribbean Island for the rest of my life.

For now, I don’t think I have any bucket list… I just want to travel anyway and live on a Caribbean Island.

I guess one of the most important thing in life is finding one’s passion, after achieving that I believe life will be more meaningful and interesting to live in for such individual.
