    How Race Impacts Travel: COVID 3

    Although our American passports give us all equal access to the world, we don't come back with the same experiences. In light of the Black Lives Matter protests and shifts, we talk to travelers of color who share their stories about being a person of color abroad. We discuss common frustrations and how to be a good ally at home and onboard.

    The more we travel, the more we find that home becomes more illusive.But, the farther we travel from it, the more foreign it seems. It slowly becomes but a dream to us. Our lives consist of backpacks and tickets instead of a bed and a mortgage. Many of us left because home doesn’t provide all that it could for us. Because they know home has been within them all along.

    Home is  hopefully a wonderful place to grow. But it can keep us stagnant. Never challenge us for bigger things in life. 
    Travel has ways of challenging us and forcing us to grow in ways we couldn’t have anticipated. We see what we are good at and where we can improve and reveal to us what our full potential is. 
    This episode will explore the theme of change in a new place. Who were you before and how did travel transform you?

Beautiful storytelling!

Adrien has a true gift for shedding light on hidden experiences. The ideas and guests on "Strangers Abroad" are different, diverse, and downright captivating. Highly recommended to anyone who has the travel bug!

Will give you wanderlust

For anyone who's ever dreamed of packing in their day job to go explore the world (and who hasn't?), this is a great podcast! Adrien meets ordinary people on extraordinary adventures who make us realise that the only thing scarier than dropping everything to go travelling, is (imo) never being brave enough to get out there. If, like me, you've been lucky enough to have travelled a bit, it will definitely make you nostalgic for the road and probably have you checking flights for your next adventure.
