The quality of a holiday isn’t dependent on how far you travel or how much you spend. When a new outlet of a particular fast food brand opens in your neighborhood, or a new bank branch, or even a new church, they are simply mimicking Nature – the “Premier Brancher”. Nature has breathtaking destinations in every clime, for everyone. Towering Waterfalls, placid Lakes, eerie valleys, imposing mountains and rocks, historic water bodies, name them! Sometimes you only need to step outside your front porch to see and savour it; at other times, you may have to travel a little.
Here is Gubi Lake through the eyes of Kelvin Udofia…
The first thing to meet your eyes will be the trees and rocks…
A little further, you will see the placid lake, serene, and inviting.
The Lake is guarded by rocks and hills.
The gathering of friends often makes a great place greater.
And beautiful sights seen together become more beautiful…
And more enchanting.
It is said that if a street performer makes you stop walking, you owe him a buck. By the same token, if you have enjoyed their home, kindly patronize the locals.
But do not attempt to beat them at their game, and in their own turf.
As you leave, know that Nature’s potential to amaze is endless. Treat yourself to another experience elsewhere. Nigeria is yours to see and discover.
Has this revelation of Gubi Lake improved your estimation of Bauchi State in any way? What do you think about it?
And hey, if you’re a Youth Corper (or know anyone who is), Have You Seen Nigeria was created with you in mind. Getting posted to a new place might be a bit unsettling, until you find the pleasures your new environment has for you. With your phone, you can document memorable places and share with the world via this platform. You get full credits; you don’t know who might be reading!
