As I have been gallivanting across the globe the last couple of years, I’ve encountered a number of new experiences and met a ton of interesting people. Many of these folks have become addicted to exploring the world as much as I have and detail their experiences through their blog(s). Some of these folks have been kind enough to link to this site from those blogs – which until now, I hadn’t returned the favor. So this is my new living and breathing Travel Blogs I Dig page (aka Blogroll). I can vouch that each of the sites below contain excellent content (intelligently written, thought-provoking, funny or all of the above) and post new articles relatively frequently – many of which I personally read. Enjoy!!!!
Travel Bloggers I Dig

A unique online community that offers travel insights from an African-American perspective. Much of our content is from the African-American community itself.

|American Black Chick in Europe
Well, I’m American. And a black chick. In Europe. Join me as I contemplate whatever’s on my mind: interracial relationships/dating, the state of the black community, politics, my (pseudo) expat life, those crazy Europeans, whatever.
HBrownGirlsFly (broun gûrlz flī) n., pl. – Two sisters, Chelle & Crystal, who are passionate about the art of travel and who obsess over languages & cultures, great deals, stretching our travel budget to the max, and inspiring others to start their own travel adventures.

In this blog, I’ll take you along to haute destinations and boutiques that will make you forget all about your budget. I’ll also tell you about must-have beauty products for your travel bag that make you smile. It’s my way of leaving a global footprint around the world… and a little part of me with everyone that I meet.
|I’m Black and I Travel
For a long time, I wasn’t sure what to call this blog, until the day my wife told her co-workers how we go “wherever” and independently plan our own trips. They were stunned. “Is your husband white?” one asked. Just like that, I had a title. It’s your world. It’s time you had a look at it.
In conjunction with the book, I decided to start a travel blog: Kiratiana Travels: Let a Black Girl Show You the World. I don’t just want to show people how to travel every other year….I want to do it EVERYDAY!
From Amsterdam to Zanzibar on romantic rendezvous, family vacations, girlfriend getaways, solo sojourns or everyday expat experiences. Join her on her journeys!

I created this website so I could share my experiences on the road and what I’ve learned during my solo travels, provide useful links to online travel resources and generate some interest in solo travel among people who haven’t yet taken the plunge.
|Urban Travel Girl
Ciao, and welcome to UrbanTravelGirl, a blog featuring my thoughts on black women living globally through international travel. I’m a passionate believer in the ability of travel to not only transform the way we see the world, but ourselves. I don’t believe in letting other folks define ME — and you shouldn’t, either!.
