BW and Travel

August 27, 2010

When was the last time you left the country?

If  the answer to that question is NEVER or when you were knee high, you are LONG OVERDUE, and luckily for you I’ve got the remedy. No, I’m not offering free plane tickets, but when I’m done with you hopefully you’ll overcome whatever hang-ups you have about travelling!

For the month of September we will focus on black women and travel.

So many Black Women do not travel, whether it be due to monetary reasons or simply fear of leaving their comfort zone.

It’s good to explore the world! Doing so is proven to raise the level of  acceptance and understanding for different cultures  and also  helps people relate to others better.

On the flip side Black Women venturing out into all corners of the Earth exposes  people/cultures, who otherwise base their ideas on Black women solely on the images from Hollywood, to how wonderful Black Women truly are!

There are Black women traveling and living very well abroad. Not all of them are “rich”, they just took advantage of opportunities that existed and didn’t let fear hold them back.

We will highlight the women and blogs with a slant on black women traveling and the different routes they took to get then where they are, which will hopefully inspire you to do the same.

If you are the host of one of these types of blogs or you would like to share your story please feel free to do so.

    I’m long overdue for a trip abroad. It’s not that I’m fearful, since I love visiting unfamiliar places and have been anxious to travel to particular countries. It’s that I can’t seem to find the time or the money.
