Weekend Getaway – Road Trip’In To Ghana x Travel Essentials.

Nigeria Passport and Yellow Card For road trip to ghana

I’m off on a road trip to Ghana!

If you’re reading this, I’m most likely a few hours into a twelve-hour road trip to Ghana right now with fellow blogger Alex. Probably already tired of sitting still and eager to arrive at my destination in Accra.

It’s a love – hate relationship that  I have with road trips because, on one hand, I love the getting on the road, the sightseeing, and the feeling of “a new experience” but on the other hand – most road trips usually take too long and I get bored, tired of sitting and impatient to get to my location.

Anyone else feels this way about road trips?

I’m currently on a ten-day leave from work, so I decided that I had to use it to achieve something meaningful or tick something else off my bucket list and my idea of that was a getaway!

My First thought was initially to go to Togo seeing as my budget couldn’t afford the exotic African countries (Zanzibar and Co) but along the way, visiting Ghana popped up and I decided to go with that and travel to Ghana by road instead.

I’m super excited to be doing this road trip to Ghana because I thought it wasn’t going to happen but by the grace of God, something gave. Also, travel is always a good idea and I’m looking forward to the new experience, places and hopefully new people I’ll be meeting soon.

I can also be a bit of a scatter head and a major procrastinator so as expected, I left packing to the very last minute (literally the night before the trip) and figured coming up with a quick checklist might come in handy for me. Thought to share that, a few of my travel essentials and give you guys a glimpse into what’s in my travel bag as well!

Quick Checklist + Essentials.

  • Border Essentials: Passport + Yellow card.
  • Beauty Needs : Toiletries, my skincare products, eyeliner (the one makeup item I can’t do without!) and a few lipsticks and accessories (My daniel wellignton wrist goes everywhere with me these days and of course sunshades for that extra cool factor.
  • Clothing : I packed a whole lot of black and denim, Probably not the best idea out there as I’m sure it would be hot in Ghana but peep a bit of what my style formula for this getaway is like up there.
  • Footwear : Lucy Daves Sandals because heels what?! When my sister makes all these dope slippers.
  • Blog planner, Camera and laptop to keep those posts coming!

How do you ensure that you don’t forget anything when you’re travelling? Do you keep a checklist like me or you just trust in your ability to remember everything?

What are some carry-on items that you can’t travel without?
