POC Travel Blogs
So, I really like travel blogs. What’s not to love? Seeing the world through the eyes of other people and even possibly some ideas for the future. When I’m going somewhere new, I love to check out some of my favorite travel blogs to see if they’ve been there and if I could get some advice.
Now, unfortunately, as a POC, it used to frustrate me that all my favorite travel bloggers had been white. Don’t get me wrong, they were all pretty good but there seems to be a stereotype that people of color, especially black people, don’t travel (outside of the US). Also, as a person of color, you might have very different experiences due to the color of your skin.
So, I thought I’d possibly share some travel and expat blogs from people of color and feel free to add on to them.
- Women of Color Living Abroad
- Ragga Muslims
- Moscow Through Brown Eyes
- I Luv 2 Globe Trot
- Sojourner Walker
- I’m Black & I Travel
- 1 Brown Girl
- Try Anything Once
- The Ocean Escape
- American Black Chick in Europe
- Oneika The Traveler
- Nicole Is The New Black
- Fly Brother
- Sunshine & Stilettos
- Absolute Travel Addict
- Girl Gone Travel
- Mo Travels
- Brown Girls Fly
- Urban Travel Girl
This is by no means an exhaustive list and I’d love to hear about your favorite travel bloggers.
Extra: Black Girl Travel is a touring company that caters to and is owned by black women, so check it out.

I’m jealous. I go to school in CT and never have these bougie experiences lol
Connecticut seems soo bougie tho! (in my head, i’ve never been)
we ‘won’ a discounted weekend at a v. bougie silent auction thing at our school, we only got it bc we’re splitting the costs between twelve people haha. i will let you know if the bougie experience is worth it (it might be horrible??? it might be great?? i have no expectations)
i’m going to a cottage “up north” (not even that north) with my friends for the weekend this is the whitest thing i’ll be doing during college ever
Hes extremely down to earth and kind and intelligent and excited and excitable about the project and we have common interests like caring about brown art and visibility and youth and politics is the best. He is very good looking is the worst.
can you let riz know i’m down to smang. just pass on the message. thanks.
