Im spending a few months studying in Kosovo this spring and my boyfriend is spending spring in Nigeria (we're both swedish). We've been talking about meeting up during this time for a week or so.
We're thinking neither Pristina nor Abuja is a great place for a holiday (correct me if I'm wrong!) so our plan is to find a place somewhere between(ish) Kosovo and Nigeria and meet there. Would be great if someone had any tips on where's nice to go.
We're not picky sleep-and-food wise, just looking for someplace where there are things to see and do. A bit of coastline would be nice too!
All the best,

2People are so different, a holiday in Nigeria is very high on my wishlist. Perhaps not in Abuja but I am sure there are plenty of interesting places in Nigeria.
Otherwise, the flight hubs in Africa are Nairobi and Addis, then you have in Middle East Dubai, Doha, and in Turkey Istanbul. All of them great connections practically to anywhere.

3Roughly between Kosovo and Nigeria, and assuming for some reason you don't want to visit Nigeria (it's a big, varied country), I'll note that Sicily is beautiful in springtime. I imagine Tunisia must be too (because it's beautiful in September).
They might both be a little tough to get to, but you never know. I can't recommend Libya or Niger at the moment, but I gather those are not what you had in mind anyway.
If you're willing to get off the crow's-flight line between you, I'd go with Egypt per #1 or any of the destinations Fulana mentions, because of ease of getting there plus the things to see and do there.

4thanks for the tips! i thought about cairo or nairobi too. and ill absolutely look into dubai! but yeah, most places are really expensive from where we're at, i doubt we'll find anything to anywhere for less than 900€ each, assuming we meet somewhere outside europe.
and for the record - i'm not saying i don't want to visit nigeria (would love some tips on the lagos/benin region!) Only reason is that my boyfriend thought it'd be fun to get out of the country for a bit when he's got his weeks off.
