A few months ago, I went on a short European adventure. We booked round trip tickets to Paris for a week and were determined to make the most of our trip. I love being in a new city. My parents do too, but they worry about long-haul flights. So I decided that we would...

While in Johannesburg and Durban, everyone kept telling me how much I was going to love Cape Town. They kept calling in Europe in South Africa and they just knew that I would love it. They weren't quite right, but they weren't wrong either. 

Cape Town is one of the most...

After a life changing week in Johannesburg, I headed to Durban for a couple of days. I had been dreaming about the day I would travel to South Africa, so when the moment finally came, I was determined to see as much of the country as I could in a span of 2 weeks. I did...

Last fall, I had the privilege of  traveling to South Africa. I fell in love with the country through books over a decade ago and I knew that I had to go someday.  In my last blog post, I review my Travel Noire TN Experience in Johannesburg. If you haven't read it, you...

We all love scrolling through Travel Noire's instagram feed. The images of all shades of melanin across the globe gives us serious wanderlust. Like many of you, I've been following them for a while and I loved what I saw. One day, I finally mustered up the courage to b...

I had the opportunity to travel to St. Maarten with my family and we all agreed it was one of the best family vacations we've ever had. The culture on the island is incredibly rich. The people are diverse and embraced us with open arms. The island was live with events...

Recently, I went on a road trip with some of my girls. I had never traveled further than about 6 hours away by car, so this was new for me. Our total distance was about 700 miles (about 12 1/2 hours on the road). We broke it down into 2 days and had a blast. It was nic...

The amount of effort we put into doing our hair is hard enough. But when we're traveling, we've got to worry about what essentials we plan on bringing, which styles (if any) we want to slay, and we want to keep things simple. Here are some of the things that I've done...

Did you read part 1?

Alright so there I was at the gate. My flight home was gone without me. At this point, I am technically on US soil. There is a giant glass wall separating flights to the US from domestic flights to Canada. I look around for anyone who is working for...

Everyone has one of these stories. The story that makes you second guess your decision to travel. I'm not going to lie, I have several. I've missed (or come within minutes) of missing just about every flight I've ever been on. It's kind of my thing. 

But this time in pa...

I am a black self-identified nerd who loves to travel.  There's a lot to see and just enough time to see it if you allow yourself to do so. I want to travel the world. Today. Right now. You down?

It's not about how far you go, or if you go by bus, plane or boat. I want to see the world for what it is through my own eyes, and share those experience with you.
