Black Travel Junkies
As a wanderer who was once in this predicament, the founder of Black Travel Junkies Alexandria Harris set out to create a travel group for people of color who enjoy international travel, comfort, culture, and adventure. The goal of Black Travel Junkies is to broaden the minds of black folks through the wisdom of travel as well as repainting the image of who qualifies for world exploration.
A few years ago Black Travel Junkies started out as a simple online blog where Alex documented a few of her travels and food conquest. Over time she began receiving numerous social media messages, text and calls from people interested in traveling with her or like her. Alex’s wandering spirit and yearning to have a space where people of color could travel together, be themselves in a judgment-free zone, network, and build lasting relationships, lead to her transforming her simple hobby blog into a gateway. A gateway that allows her to present people of color with the opportunity to live up to no one’s expectations of life but their own! People of color deserve a seat at the globe-trot table, and Black Travel Junkies has a seat waiting for them. It’s our time, so request your time off work, pack your luggage, and let us handle the rest. BTJ has teamed up with some of the travel industries' most elite tour companies and resorts to ensure that you have a wondrous experience.
Ready-made friends who are itching to explore (just like you), and optional single supplements if you want a room all to yourself are available. All you have to do is show up with a smile and a passport.
