As someone who’s totally passionate about international travel (and whose often-depleted bank account proves just how much), I want to share that gospel with others. After all, the reason I started this blog was to encourage African-American sisters to venture out far beyond the United States borders and experience the world. There’s far too much of it to see—and we are far too fabulous—to stick close to home just because we don’t know what we’ll find once we get out there.
I write about this in much detail on the brand-new Jet Magazine Web site. Take a look at my piece on African-Americans going global and a somewhat tongue-in-cheek piece on five myths that often keep us from traveling abroad. And check out some interesting statistics about black folks, the money we spend on travel, and where we go once we book those overseas flights.
So let’s grab those passports (or apply for one if you don’t yet have one of these treasures) and GO!
