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.
In less than 30 minutes of arriving at Singapore’s airport -Singapore Changi Airport – I was already halfway in love with the country.
Those first 30 minutes in a new country can tell you so much about a country and it’s people. Within that short time frame, I was made to feel very welcomed. The airport staff were very friendly and helpful and there was none of those fake smiles or half-hearted greetings.
