You know how you plan to conquer the world and you are picking off cities to conquer on the map one by one? For Lotus Tours, Whispering Palms in Badagry was the chosen first spot. Yes it took us about 2 hours to get there but hey, we had so much fun that we almost forgot the hassles. From the fun games on the Bus (2 Truths 1 Lie, Word Association and more) to the Pizza and Tigernut Milk Shenanigans (Guess what we said) we got up to, we were more than psyched.
The activities kicked off with an Aerobics class by Fit Mum Ejiro Oyeneye of Team Fitness where she helped us stretch our muscles before we took a tour of the grounds where we saw a number of animals as well as relics from the slave trade era. What a time to be alive! To think that some were not allowed to live in freedom because of the colour of their skin. Others took advantage of the pool and went to either take photos by the pool or do some actual swimming.
Then we headed out for Lunch where we did some bonding and gisting in our groups – Team Cupcakes, Ice Cream, Cookies, Jollof Rice, Chocolate and Popcorn ( Yeah, we are sweet like that). We were going on water next so we needed to get fueled up and revved to go!
Next up was the Boat paddling and some people took to it like fish in water, others… Let’s just say we had a great time laughing at Team Jollof Rice them. Once we wrapped this up, we went on to the raffle draw where we picked our winners.
There was an amazing wristwatch up for grabs which a SLAy sister Seyi Amao picked up as well as Domino’s Pizza Vouchers. Not to be cheesy but everyone went home as a winner with gifts in their Goody Bags, awesome stuff!
