This blog exists because of my mother, who kindled my love of travel — and a young black woman was proud to have never set foot outside of Natchez, MS!
My most prized possession is an old passport with 15 visa stamps in it. I plan my own trips and will veer off from the itinerary in a heartbeat. All of this has prompted some people of color to suspect I’m white.
To them, I owe the title of this blog.
Travel opens your eyes, broadens your mind. It inspires and it humbles. You return knowing your world, and yourself, a little better. So we’ll be talking about travel — tips, ideas, destinations, issues. I hope you find something here that inspires you get “out there.”
As my friend Shay Olivarria likes to say, “the world is bigger than your block.” It’s time you had a look at it.
