United States

Home sweet home. Even moving around in our own countries, Black individuals will experience many of the same situations as described above in international waters. The suspicious glances, the questions about our hair, differing attitudes depending on skin tone— this isn’t new to us. There will always be aspects to travel that we will have to consider that others won’t, but there are also so many more hidden gems to travel that can and will be discovered because of that. We search out places where we feel safe, joyful, and fulfilled. When we take these experiences with us, from country to country, we build for ourselves a larger understanding of the world. Having the privilege and freedom to travel and move from one country to another is not something that should be taken for granted, for any traveler. For those of you who have an American passport, you may recognize that even that gives you certain privileges. However you identify —culturally, racially, sexually, or otherwise—your unique experiences will shape the way you travel and the stories you will tell. TIP: There is racism and anti-Blackness everywhere. Internationally, and right next door. You will encounter situations that make you uncomfortable, angry. But you will also find places that bring you joy. You will find pieces of yourself all over the world, and when put together, it will be messy and beautiful. Be safe, be vigilant, and go wherever you want to! Forever chase adventure and freedom, by any means necessary.

The USA has been vaccinating its citizens at an ever-accelerating pace and has already started to reduce restrictions for those who have been fully vaccinated- including travel. Including active plans with Europe to begin easing travel restrictions, The USA is sure to be one of the easiest countries to access this summer. From sparkling NYC celebrating on the east coast to the endlessly perfect sunshine weather of California- there is so much to see and do in just one country and it is the perfect stomping grounds to get your travel back on.

It was my first international trip, when I was 14 years old, I visited North Carolina, New Jersey, and New York, where we had family. I wish I could remember more about the trip since it was so long ago, I forgot many things. But for sure I would revisit some day!

From jazz buffets to bottomless vodka New Orleans does brunch exceptionally well.

  • The 15 Best Places for King Cake in & Around New Orleans

    I love everything about Carnival season in New Orleans - the parades, decor, and overall joviality of the city always manages to brighten the winter down here. Best of all, it’s King Cake season! Although you technically can find King Cake at all times in New Orleans, the period between the Catholic Holidays of Epiphany and Ash Wednesday is when it’s socially acceptable to eat this decadent brioche. A traditional King Cake is a ring shaped dough formed to mimic the shape of a crown in honor of the Three Kings of Epiphany. The cake is then adorned in glaze and purple, green, and gold sugar. A plastic baby figurine is also embedded into the cake, and if you end up getting the slice with it you must buy the next King Cake. Each year, my friends and I go on a mission to find the best King Cakes in the city - here are some of my favorites.

  • The 12 Best City Tours in New Orleans

    Whenever I check out a new city I like to orient myself with the local landmarks and culture by embarking on a city tour. Moving to New Orleans presented me with the conflicting identity of not necessarily being a tourist, yet not exactly being a local either. I believe that it’s important to be a tourist in your own city - to get to know it inside out and understand why it’s so beloved. Unsure how to do this? The best way to start is to take a tour. In my years living in New Orleans, I’ve had the privilege of taking quite a few; here are my favorites.

The best bars in New Orleans host some of the quirkiest humans you'll find.. well, really anywhere. This list is a great fit for your 1st or 50th trip to the Big Easy.
  • Best of Nightlife in New Orleans

    New Orleans nightlife has a true "do what you wanna" feel. There are literally countless ways to spend the nights in New Orleans.

For me, when it comes to nightlife, I like to do a little of everything and it depends entirely on the night and my mood. But if I had to choose, here are my personal favorite spots to spend my nights in Nola
  • Best Beignets in New Orleans

    New Orleans is one of the hottest spots for tourists, musicians and street performers in the south. It's known for its lively atmosphere, exquisite food and southern charm.

This local Cajun promises you won't regret it!

  • The 11 Best Breweries in New Orleans

    Abita started it all - at least that’s what I’ve been told about the ever growing brewery scene in Southeastern Louisiana. The iconic brewery that can now be found in liquor stores all over the United States got its start in the marshy landscape approximately 30 miles north of New Orleans. Today, there are nearly 20 breweries in the city, with more popping up each year in old warehouses down on Tchoupitoulas and in Mid City. The brewery scene was not something that registered with me when I first moved here, but with my love of beer (especially a hazy IPA) in hand, I’m on a mission to try them all.
