What to expect when travelling black

Travelling black is a whole different experience.

When travelling as a black person, it can be hella nerve-wracking. You never know how people are going to react to you. You never know how you are going to be treated.

We constantly find ourselves googling or YouTubing what it’s like to travel to a certain destination as a black person.

I love that today, more black people are out here catching flights, but there are still many who rarely or never leave their own countries.

One of the reasons that I started this blog, is because I want to encourage more black people to travel. And a part of that is preparing you for what you may experience on your travels.

So, I’ve created a little video sharing a few things that black people may experience when they travel.

Please do check it out and let me know what you think!Β πŸ’›

I’d love to hear about your own experiences, so please do share them in the comments.

Well, until next time guys!

  1. While I was minding my own business being a typical tourist in Greece, a very friendly old Greek man rushed up to me and more or less grabbed me and kept touching my cheeks and feeling my arms (as if feeling to see if I was human lol), my personal space well and truly obliterated 😝 it was a little overwhelming, though I don’t think he meant no harm – he insisted I come back to visit him (but I didn’t).

    1. Ohh wow! I can’t imagine how I would’ve reacted in that situation. I hate when strangers just ignore my personal space and feel like they can touch me or my hair 😭 Thank you for sharing your experience!

  2. Just want to say I found you from twitter thread β€œblack girls who have blogs” I like your blog, the style, how you write and the font and font size you use.
