Why We Travel

Have you ever dreamed of that weekend getaway to see a new city, but thought you couldn’t afford it? 

We’ve totally been there. 😉 

That’s why we created this blog—to show that even Nigerians on a budget can explore this beautiful country of ours!

We’re Amara and Emmanuel, just two young Nigerians with full-time jobs but itchy feet to see as much of the country as we can.

How We Met and Bonded Over Budget Travel Dreams

We first met back in 2022 when we did our NYSC program together in Bauchi State.

Together with our friends, we explored the nooks and crannies of Bauchi.

From Yankari to Gubi Dam and even went as far as Sumu Wildlife in Kafin Madaki.

We quickly bonded over our big dreams to travel despite our small budgets.

Spreading Nigerian Travel Inspiration Affordably

After the program, we just couldn’t stop searching out new affordable destinations across Nigeria! And we realized – why keep these budget travel secrets to ourselves? 🤷‍♀️

So we decided to create We Travel Now to share:

  • All of our best budget travel hacks
  • Awesome affordable deals we find
  • Detailed guides to amazing spots you can visit without blowing your budget

What You Can Discover Here

Want to come along virtually on our journey crisscrossing Nigeria? We’d love to have you join!

We’ll reveal how we:

  • Find the best instrammable locations in the country
  • Get affordable flights
  • Find awesome lodging deals even in peak season
  • Take you behind the scenes on how we earn extra cash from side hustles for travel!

And we can’t wait to show you some of the coolest, most affordable places we’ve discovered so far—from beach getaways to mountain escapes to culture-rich cities! 

You’re going to love it! 😁
