We are having major travel withdrawals. Traveling is a form of freedom and with everything going on, that freedom has been put on pause.

And though we can’t physically catch a flight right now, we’ve been daydreaming again, spending countless hours on IG, living vicariously through the eyes of some our favorite black travel influencers. Trust me when I tell you that they are Travel GOALS!

It’s been 94 days since my last flight – the longest I’ve been grounded in a decade. So, needless to say, I’m thinking about when I’ll get back in the sky. I’m really craving the novelty, the stimulation and the excitement travel brings, and I CAN. NOT. WAIT to get back to my beloved Caribbean. ✈️ I’m pretty sure I’d be comfortable anywhere in the Caribbean right now because the region has handled the pandemic so well. But I still have very little confidence in my airport and inflight experience and my ability to stay socially distanced and safe in a confined space and a metal tube hurtling through space. I see photos of jam-packed flights and passengers without facemasks and I cringe. ✈️ This week I’ve had a few tentative enquiries from resort and destination publicists trying to gauge when I’d be comfortable flying again. And I tell them that as soon as I can feel comfortable that I can keep myself safe during the actual “getting there” part of the trip, I’m game. But when that will actually be, I honestly have no idea. I’m crossing my fingers that it’ll be by the end of the summer. What about you? When would you feel ready to get on a plane? * * * #jetsetsarah #exploremore #explore #instago #travel #travelingram #instadaily #igaddict #travelnoire #bestoftheday #igtravel #travelpics #traveltuesday #mytravelgram #vsco #bestvacations #instaview #instatravel #igmasters #beach #beaches #travelgram #island #islands #caribbean #greatesttravels #beautifuldestinations #caribbeandreaming #caribbean #travellater #stayhome

Mood: Minding my business. (*whispers* my business is travel…) Venice 🇮🇹 Italy Just had a conversation with @hownottotravellikeabasicbitch on Covid-travel and how some are reacting negatively to those who are CHOOSING to do it. Travel is my business, so to me it’s a no brainer that when countries allowed it, I would be amongst the first to volunteer as tribute. 🤣 Of course, I am taking all the necessary precautions advised by each country official and I am fully aware of the risks involved with being amongst the first but I am glad I am doing this. Asides from getting to experience all the tourist traps without tourists, I am also getting to experience first-hand what travel during and post-Covid will be like. This trip is pushing me as a trip curator and travel content creator to go the extra mile in what I deliver. I’m asking the questions, doing the research and doing more ground work than I’ve ever done and this will only increase my ability to execute safe, reliable and high-level experiences for my travellers. If you don’t feel safe travelling, you should feel no pressure to do so and no judgement either. If you feel safe doing so, do your research (each country has been affected differently and will have different rules that change every day), be prepared and follow all precautionary measures put in place to keep everyone safe. This is how we’re going about it! Oh you’re probably wondering how I ended up in Venice, right? No? Okay well I’ll tell you anyways… After dropping off the camper van, we rented a car and drove from Split, Croatia to Ljubljana, Slovenia. Slept overnight in the car then took a small shuttle bus to Venice from there. We had no issues getting into any of these countries as we were travelling from countries from which travel was allowed (check each country’s government websites for allowed countries) I am a lot more detailed in my story, so checkout my highlight for more! Happy quarantining or travelling- whichever you choose to do! ✨
