“Travel Noire”, cultivated insights from a global community of black travelers, is the new portal to a wide range of travel possibilities.
The website promises unique trips with tailored-made itineraries across the globe for all interested travelers. “It doesn’t take a ton of money, a large group of friends, or a wild amount of vacation days- let us show you how”, reads the website’s tagline.
Founder Zim Ugochukwu is an avid traveler herself and spent some time in several Asian countries. The website hosts a rich range of options from video features for unconventional travelers, to feature stories of travelers, and even cover stories on specific locations from around the world. There are also opportunities for internships abroad.
Its unique aspect is the portrayal of the black person being the foreigner, which changes from the stereotypical standpoint that persons of color never travel or are never the foreigner in any particular land.
If you’re an experienced traveler, or have always hesitated in taking the leap, feel free to browse around the website, get inspired, and book a trip. It might just be the experience of your life.
