Social-Isolation Reflections

  • Post comments:11 Comments

I wasn't going to write anything on the subject, to be honest. As a follower of many travel bloggers on Instagram as well as being a member of travel-related Facebook groups, it's been do I say it, annoying, to read the conversations (read: divide) that is taking place. One group of people urging others…

Solo Christmas in Amsterdam

  • Post comments:9 Comments

This past Christmas I decided to spend the holidays overseas. Well, to be honest, the decision was made in Sept. 2019, after scouring Google Flights for various itineraries that fit the dates I had vacation time. As (most) of you know, I am an educator. One of the great things about this profession is having…

An Attitude of (Travel) Gratitude

  • Post comments:2 Comments

As I sit back and think of my life, my journey, and all the things that have led up to this very moment, all I can do is give thanks. I'm very aware that I live an amazing life and I do not take any of it for granted. Any of it. Things always look great when we…

Solo Travel Over Everything!

  • Post comments:11 Comments

About 75% (or maybe more) of the trips I take annually are solo trips. I remember my official trip out of the country by myself was in 2015, when I went to Barbados for 5 days.  I'm not going to lie, I wasn't too nervous to go alone, because I've always the type of person to do things by…

The second tour I got to do with Alex Rocha was a trip to the first free slave town in the Americas, San Basilio de Palenque. This town is located about an hour south east of Cartagena.  On the way there, we pulled over to the side of the road to where a big sign was posted with…

Afro-Colombianism is ALIVE & WELL Pt. 1

It's safe to say at this point I am well traveled enough to know that the African Diaspora is far, wide, and everywhere. Going to a South American country for the first time, and a coastal one at that, I knew I was bound to see some of my hermanas y hermanos.  But it's one thing…

I consider myself amazingly blessed to work in a school district in which we get a week off for a Winter Break. I decided back in July of this year that I had to go to Colombia, due to hearing about it on various travel blogs and groups that it was the place to be. I flew Avianca…

I vividly remember going to bed after my first night telling myself that I'd be out the house by 11am so I could maximize my day... Did it happen??? HECK NAW! Honey, I woke up after 1PM and didn't get out of the apartment until a quarter to 3, but I had to remind myself that it was…

Denmark is never a place I thought about visiting or had the desire to, in all honesty. However, when the travel gods start working their magic and show you all the different possibilities on how to get your butt home for the cheapest way, you take heed. I chose to spend the last leg of…

My Time in Stockholm

  • Post comments:2 Comments

When I arrived in Stockholm it was early Christmas morning. After the long flight across the Atlantic, I was bit lethargic but after getting through the airport rigamarole, the sleepiness evaded me when it hit me that I actually made it to this foreign place. The "Arlanda Express" takes you from the airport to Stockholm…
