Ghana Holiday Part 3 ♡

London weather has really changed as summer is officially over, nevertheless looking back at my photos for Ghana just reminds me of the lovely summer I did have and the GREAT holiday I had. 

Here is part 3 for you all, with my outfit of the days and some more of what I got up to. 

I made some really good friends while out in Ghana. 
Prince and Thomas, such amazing guys and brothers in Christ to me. They really looked after me and my friend while out in Ghana. Thank you so much guys, God bless you both! *Thumbs Up!*

Some of the lovely people I met and got the privilege to chill with. 
The staff at hotel were so friendly and helpful...I'm so grateful to God for them. I really miss them! 

Day 2 at the beach. 

I am such a fan of beach shots, in the summer (modestly dressed of course).
If I lived near a beach, I would be there all the time, I am sure...maybe one day.

This meat is called 'Chinchinga' and while on the beach I got to make my own one. It reminded me much of the Congolese 'camudele' (kebab) yet more spicy. It was real good! 

My first time EVER being this close to a lobster and first time tasting it also. 
It was nice, but not very filling it seemed. 

Natural hair!!! <3 

Thomas totally was fine with holding the Lobster...
me on the other hand...I needed to compose myself first.

I really wanted to go a quad bike - on a beach - while on holiday and God totally made it possible. So much favor on this holiday! This quad bike was privately owned by a gentleman named Teddy. He shared with us that he doesn't lend his quad out, but then he said he would let me ride on it. IF YOU COULD SEE MY FACE AT THAT POINT!!!!! It was such a great experience! I actually got to go on a motor something...wasn't a bike this time (I like motorbikes) but it was spot on!  

Caught in conversation. I promise I was NOT posing here. hehe. 

Me and Thomas, such a lovely guy. My Ghanaian brother. God BLESS you Sir!

One of the BEST Pineapple juices I have tasted! Thank you Blue Skies! 

This is kelewele, which is plantain cooked in spices and ginger. So yummy! 

With Love....Nash Amber

Ghana Holiday Part 2 ♡

Out and about in Ghana, I went to the beach a few times, visited a ministry out there called Lighthouse Chapel International, Madina Estate branch.  I also went to a road show, saw AMAZING dances by the young people (they taught us a few moves too! :D - I REALLY enjoy dancing). We met some really lovely children and individuals. 

Some photos below of my adventures in Ghana...and lots of food!! Oh how I miss this land. 

 Me and some of the lovely children at Lighthouse.

Lovely houses

The open drains in Ghana

Some local young people, it was a joy to see them like this, chilling. This was SO different from the picture I had in my mind of how the young people be chilling!
Peterpan is the place. This sweet and sour chicken was sooo GOOD!
~ A day in service with Lighthouse ~

ipads galore in Ghana. 
Quick snippet of an outfit.  

Such a lovely Aunty I met. 

With Phillip and James, some individuals that took care of us during our stay in Ghana. Blessed guys. 
Moments with some of the youth at Lighthouse. 

Beautiful sisters. They were so friendly! 

Forest Gate Hotel! Such a great time there!

Some more food in Ghana! So lovely!!! Of course, pineapple juice was ordered!

Presentation for the rice was so lovely. I am so going to get involved with this moving forward!

Got these made at Arts centre. Such a wonderful place full of goodies! 

Afro Hair journey has really began!

Watch out for the video blog soon.
 ~ First Day out to the beach ~

Such beauty ...
A video being shot on the beach as we arrived. 

An artist stopped me at the beach. Such talent. 

Some form of music video being shot on the beach. 
First time EVER riding on a horse in my life.
 I was looking excited about it, but also careful that I did not fall off!
Confidence kicked in almost straight away!
I had to arrange my dress in such a way to remain modest, before I moved anywhere. 
Modest appeal at the beach.  I am not one for swimming in the sea, plus it was super C O L D. 
God is GOOD! Such beauty in His creation!

About to get some food!

Labadi at a glance. 
 by God's grace, I will get to go and experience this again plus more! 

Thanks for stopping by, watch out for part 3 soon! 

With love and style,
