Will Drink For Travel Turns Three!

Can you believe it's been three years since the launch of Will Drink For Travel? It's been such an amazing adventure. I wanted to take a moment to highlight all of the amazing things I've done this past year.

 Appearing on Great Day Washington

Appearing on Great Day Washington

Last January, I was featured on Great Day Washington to talk about all things Martinique. It was my first television appearance for the site, so I was super nervous but excited to share my drinking and traveling knowledge of Martinique with the Washington D.C. metro area. I hear I did a great job too! :)

Shortly thereafter, I left for what turned into almost a year of travel in Zambia and South Africa. It was an amazing, life-changing experience. From Lusaka and Victoria Falls to Durban, Cape Town and Johannesburg (not to mention a safari in Botswana and an afternoon in Zimbabwe), I fell more in love with Africa than ever before. (Seriously, everyone needs to visit a country in Africa at some point in their lives...trust me!)

 Relaxing in Cartagena, Colombia

In between my trips to Zambia and South Africa, I traveled to Finger Lakes, New York, Cartagena, ColombiaCuracao, and road tripped from San Francisco to Los Angeles

I appeared on Great Day Washington again, this time discussing my experience at Zambia's Devil's Pool in Livingstone. (Be sure to watch the episode on Will Drink For Travel TV!) 

Of course, I can't forget hosting the Women of Color Travel Event in New York City, which brought together women of color in travel to discuss how the industry impacts us as travel professionals. This was our second annual event and it has turned into one of my favorite travel events of the year.

Finally, one of my favorite blog posts was republished on Matador Network, which I think is a huge accomplishment as a travel blogger.
