Young Black and Traveled
Is travel the new adult lounge? One of my fav things on Instagram right now are all the pages dedicated to black folks who travel. No, not just to Philly for the weekend but Dubai for a holiday. I love the pictures, such as, melanin queens and ebony kings riding elephants in Thailand and leading parades in New Orleans.
We are having genuine new experiences by stepping out of our comfort zones to discover more about ourselves. I never thought I would be one of those people, but I truly became a travel junkie. Through my adventures I’ve seen some beautiful places, tried some strange foods and made amazing friends. With every place you take with you a new story, and a hunger for more; more adventures, more stories, and of course some killer pictures for that Instagram page.
For all my sisters who are a little shy or don’t know where to start there are some amazing blogs out there on the travel experience, how to get started, and even how to live abroad. Two of my favorite IG travel pages are @blacktravelfeed and @guidetogetlost. This sista has lived abroad for over five years and is currently touring Italy! Check out her blog at Guidetogetlost.com.
