Before I start, I just want to clear up a few things: 1)I am in no way saying that travelling will help everyone who suffers from depression. 2)I am not a mental health expert, I’m just sharing my own experiences, with the hope that it will help someone get the help that they need. 3) If you are experiencing suicidal thoughts, please seek help now!!!

To appease my wanderlust at times when I’m not out exploring the world, I follow a number of travel pages on Instagram.
However, I found that a lot of the pages I was following only showed one type of traveller.
I rarely, if ever saw someone who looked like me. Someone that I could relate to.
That’s why I think it’s so important for black people to follow black travel Instagram pages. Although we may not (or rarely) be included in the mainstream pages, we have been able to create our own mainstream.
