Later today will be the tweet chat of all travel tweet chats when we feature the flyest, flyers I know…the queens of international travel to answer all your questions…no holds barred. On our illustrious list of panelists we include:
Founder of JetSetHer.com, Gabriela Oliveira. Her Twitter handle says it all: “Travel Expert, 39 countries & counting, 4 languages, international travel/fashion/sensual editorial photographer.” About traveling, Oliverira says, “The strange thing about traveling abroad is that you learn more and more about yourself with each connecting flight. Each lost baggage claim ticket seems to heal your nerves and being lost in translation helps you to understand humans more and more.”
Ieishah Clelland, publisher of HaveSassWillTravel and (occasional) writer for BB&W. Beautiful, brilliant, living in Germany with her husband and adorable daughter, she has a ton of information for the would-be black girl traveler.
Fleacé Weaver, founder of the widely-popular Black Girl Travel program, which encourages black women to “Go where they are celebrated, not tolerated.” Black Girl Travel creates unique customized tours and meeting programs for groups and individuals. Tours are developed by “Black Women for Black Women”. The tours are designed for “young at heart” well-heeled urbanites interested in exploring new lands while indulging in local culture, international cuisine, retail therapy, and exciting nightlife. There simply is no such thing as a ‘regular tour’ at BlackGirlTravel.com. Weaver began the planning of each tour from scratch with pen, paper, maps, and a vision to maximize the time spen tin each country. With her creative flair and “can do” attitude, she has earned a reputation for designing unique travel experiences with the special needs and desires of fun-loving progressive Black women in mind. So, whether you are the seasoned traveler looking for something different or a newbie seeking the security of a group, we have a tour for you! These are not your grandmother’s tours!
Citrina Warren, publisher of Jamerican Queen Abroad. She has a very unique experience being a black woman living and working in South Korea.
