The travel industry very often seems to forget about the Black traveller. We rarely if ever see ourselves represented or considered. And while some may believe that Black people don’t travel, we are out here catching flights (pre-COVID 😭), seeing the world and changing up the game.
There are so many inspiring Black people in the travel industry who are playing a huge part in the Black travel movement and leaving their mark on the travel industry, so it was very difficult to only highlight a few.
However, these 15 individuals are people you need to know when it comes to Black travel. They are changing the way people think about travel, inspiring others to travel and playing a huge part in making travel more inclusive for Black people.
So here are 15 inspiring Black people in the travel industry:
I’ve always been in love with the idea of being able to see the world with bae. You can really get to know someone by travelling with them and just having that one-to-one time away from your norm. Being able to live your best lives and create beautiful, life-lasting memories with your other half is everything!
So, I asked a few amazing Travel Content Creators to share one of their favourite baecation destinations. If you’re looking for some inspiration for your baecation with your boo, check out this amazing list:
It’s a whole new year and a whole new decade! I hope y’all are ready to live your best travel life!
I love starting off the year by sharing ten destinations that I would love to visit, in hopes of giving you guys some travel inspiration. It’s kinda become a tradition (check out my previous lists: 2017, 2018 and 2019).
So in no particular order, here are my top ten destinations for 2020:
December was a crazy busy month for me, so I never got a chance to really reflect on 2019.
If you asked me to describe 2019 in word, I would probably say “mehhhh”. But when I really think about it, yes there were many lows, but there were also many highs.
Just to name a few achievements (which I still can’t believe myself), in 2019, I had my first two press trips, worked with quite a few brands and successfully organised my first event for my other platform Black Travel Creators (check us out on Twitter and Instagram).
I’m also blessed to have been able to travel a few times last year. I revisited a few countries I had previously been to and I was able to cross off a few countries off my travel bucket list.
