About Me

Well lets see here, I am just an ol’ Southern girl that has a love of all things travel. Born in Charleston S.C., I am no stranger to tourism. Many folks travel down to the “Low Country” to get a taste of some good ol’ Southern Hospitality and sweet tea. Others travel to Charleston for it’s historic glow and wonder.

As a child, I often traveled to the DMV (DC, Maryland, Virginia) to visit my grandparents for my summer breaks, and that’s when it all started. My love for travel that is….

This blog will touch on some of my own travel, the good, the bad, and the I will never do that again type of stuff. In addition to that, you can expect to see a few travel deals posted here and there, along with some reviews from my closest friends and family.

The purpose of “Travel Is D’new Black” is to prove that us blacks do travel, and that we bring a little flava while doing so.

You can find some of my work on the travel blog “Black and Well Traveled,” and more sites to come, : ).
