"the trusted voice of teens who travel"
August 27th, 2013
Hi I’m Summer. I’m from the Pacific northwest in the USA. About a year ago my parents told me that we were going to be taking a two year trip to Europe where we would buy a camper and start touring. Its been a year now and I’ve been to over 15 different countries. I’ve started my own blog www.summersadventures.com, am in the process of writing my own book, and have experienced many different cultures.
I learned quickly that you shouldn’t go anywhere in Lagos without a swimsuit under your clothes, because there are beaches everywhere! The natural arches are stunning and the turquoise water is so clear. There are even some places you can pay to ride a small boat through the arches.
Make sure you have many water bottles because some of the beaches and views take a bit of hiking to reach. Also a camera is a must. You can’t go anywhere that isn’t worthy of a photo. One tip though, to find the best secluded smaller beaches ask the locals because they know best where to go. I loved my time in Lagos it was by far the highlight to my time spent in Portugal.
