Traveling well is an art. Being able to convey the immense pleasure and complexities of traveling the world takes real skill. These 15 Black Travel Bloggers do it with ease. When travel is simply part of who you are, it’s easy to portray the life you are living. Why? because you are living your truth and doing what you love.

Please share this post so the world can see a small sampling of Black Travel Bloggers that often get ignored by mainstream travel outlets. These 15 Black Travel Bloggers prove that traveling isn’t only for the elite, but it’s open to anyone who simply has the desire to see what this wide world has to offer. 

15 Black Travel Bloggers

I’m Roni, The Travel Guru and I’ve been traveling way before travel became trendy. I do my best to combine my over 30 years experience in world wide travel to show you how you too can travel gracefully, stress free and in style.

With the ability to speak three languages fluently (I learned Spanish and French after the age of 25) I use the same skills to educate my audience on travel that I used when I obtained my MBA, my Elementary Teaching Credential and my Tour Manger license.

 My goal is to educate and hopefully inspire my thousands of followers across the globe to take the leap and travel. I’m one of the few Travel Bloggers that can give you insider tips on packing and airport operations because I have worked for a major airline for the past 13 years.

And guess what? I make masks, beautiful Black girl stickers, blankets and more.I also wrote a guidebook on Paris,  I offer courses on how to use Canva and make cute tee shirt to wear. Whatever you need,I got you boo.

The caliber of Travel Bloggers currently changing the travel game is astounding.  Nadeen from The Sophisticated Life is a shining example of a blogger that is using her education and expertise to entertain and educate her worldwide travel audience.

Not only is Nadeen an award winning Travel Blogger but in her spare time (I need a sarcastic font for my humor) she’s a Pediatric Hospitalist. How many people do you know can save a child’s life one day then be on a plane to an exotic location the next?  Following the adventures of a doctor who is a Travel Blogger will inspire you in ways you never thought possible.

How many Travel Bloggers do you know are also lawyers? There are a few but none as superb as Tyra of Barristourista.com. She is a former adjunct professor at University of Southern California and is currently the managing partner of her own law practice.

Somehow she finds the time to travel extensively, offer travel products in her travel store and blog about her travels while giving legal advice to bloggers, photographers and small business owners on hughleysmithlaw.com.

Tomiko of Passports and Grub will not only educate you on the art of traveling well, she is going to make you laugh while doing it. This Black Travel Blogger is also in the over 40 club.

She shows that women over 40 know how to enjoy life. Her panache for the finer things in life will have you booking your flight to some exotic location.

With every blog post Lauren is dispelling the belief that women don’t like the outdoors. Her blog Outdoorsy Diva:

 is for women who love outdoor adventure, unique travel experiences, the great outdoors, foodie adventures, theme parks and every other kind of adventure.”

Not only is she adventurous but she is educated. She has a B.S. in Management Information Systems from University of South Florida. Her blog is perfection for those that enjoy the outdoors and want to know how to navigate outdoor spaces.
