    Chapter 79-JetSetSarah

    Chapter 79-JetSetSarah

    Truly hope you enjoy and are inspired by this week’s episode with Sarah.







    In this chapter, Sarah, in her delightful accent, shares her first memories of traveling, and as our full-time Caribbean expert, her thoughts about traveling for leisure when the pandemic is not yet over, and considering the safety of the citizens of your destination if you have to travel for work. She discusses her philosophy behind how she shows up in the world, and the value of focusing on the good. Sarah talks about feeling good in her body, her iconic blue eyeliner and mascara, the importance of dressing to make a statement, and her hair journey from locs to a fro, and back to locs. She also gets into her experience when she was approaching 50 years of age, and how she’s been able to embrace herself. Sarah says it’s important to change what you can, share your gifts with the world, and hopes that people have been able to get more of a handle on that in the last year. She also shares with us a simple practice her therapist shared with her to invite more calm into her days.







    Sarah would love to connect with you on Facebook, Twitter, or she’s really digging Instagram these days. And she’s just started a newsletter you can sign up for here.

    Chapter 78-FixWith PK

    Chapter 78-FixWith PK

    Truly hope you enjoy and are inspired by this week’s episode with Petrina.







    In this chapter, PK shares her journey of her life in Namibia, when she caught the travel bug, and her transition to living in Portugal. She tells us how from a young age, she displayed some strong characteristics that have led her to be the multi-passionate, high risk taker that she is. PK describes her relationship with God, what keeps her motivated and inspired, and how adventure is a part of her self-care. She says the support she received from her mother and family has helped her to be confident, and she’s taken that to help empower women in achieving their desired life. PK also shares her top three tips for being a more confident woman in every room you step into.







    PK would love support on her YouTube channel, and on Instagram where you can get all the women empowerment juice.

    Question + Answer with Wanda Duncan

    Question + Answer with Wanda Duncan

    Hey love!Sometimes a little perspective helps us to reframe situations in our lives so we can move forward and embrace more joy.







    But what’s the value of joy? Isn’t it just a pause in between all of life’s responsibilities?







    See yourself living life and responding to your outside world from a more centered place. Imagine if you really believed life was happening in your favor, and not to you.







    I’ve experienced how creating space to feel good leads to recognizing your talents, and showing up more confidently in them. Because you have your head lifted, looking out, instead of looking inward to your detriment, imposter syndrome doesn’t touch you. You’re able to be present for the things you want to do without heavily criticizing or second guessing yourself.







    Also, everything happening in the outside world won’t be able to disempower you to the point of depression and hopelessness as you practice vibrating higher.







    Do you have any questions about life, work, and/or travel? Send them into askbwtpod at gmail dot com. If you’d like them to be read anonymously, just let me know and mums the word.

    Chapter 77-The Wandering Pier

    Chapter 77-The Wandering Pier

    Truly hope you enjoy and are inspired by this week’s episode with Pier.







    In this chapter, Pier tells us about growing up in Trinidad & Tabago, moving to London as a teenager, and getting through turbulent times living there with her mother there. She’s been able to work in South Korea, Czech Republic, and Malaysia over the past nine years, and talks about how she’s maintained relationships in her work country and her two home countries. She shares with us the gifts that her grandma gave her, and how South Korea gave her the gift of herself. We get a little geeky about food and Pier tells us how she’s debunked the myth that traveling can inhibit finding a romantic partner.







    Pier is looking to be kept, and if not that, you can connect with her on Instagram and Facebook. She’s open to chatting about how she’s been able to teach abroad, and welcomes questions after you’ve Googled a bit. She also likes talking about all the things spiritual, and if you’re feeling gifty, she would love to take a quantum course.

    Chapter 76-Miss Peppermint

    Chapter 76-Miss Peppermint

    Truly hope you enjoy and are inspired by this week’s episode with Peppermint.







    In this chapter, Peppermint shares with us how she’s been managing this year, and takes us back to her Pennsylvanian upbringing and active school life. She says her sense of self has gotten her through the crunchy times, and describes the family dynamic and the biggest gift her mother gave her that’s given her self-confidence. Peppermint walks us through the beginning of her drag career, the decisions that created that path, and how she’s been able to grow into her 22 year long career. We get into the difference of working from a place of fear versus working because you’re an enthusiastic creator. Peppermint also opens up about competing on RuPaul’s Drag Race, Season 9 in the midst of her medical transition, the impact her transition has had in her life, and the value of being a good person. We also talk a bit about the Disclosure documentary and she shares with us her self-care practices.







    Peppermint says you can support her work by tuning into Twitch every Tuesday for Pepp Talks where she and franz review classic Black movies, subscribing to her Patreon, and she’d love for you to cop her new album, Girl Like Me. You can also get merch from her store. Catch up with Peppermint on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook!

Travelicious!!!

While listening to each interview my mind wanders to far away places. I become courageous and feel as if anything is possible. These remarkable women are living their life by design and are showing us what that looks like through their eyes. Wanda asks thought provoking questions while letting her humor, intelligence and love for travel shine through. Ladies...if you’ve ever dreamed of what it’s like to travel to faraway places in your beautiful brown skin, but have let fear or worry stop you because of the unknown...please listen to this podcast. You will be informed, inspired, and encouraged!

A Celebration of Diverse Perspectives

I really enjoy the variety of Black women travelers showcased. They are all unique and inspiring in their own ways. There is no average Black woman traveler and this podcast celebrates that!

A show that gifts perspective

I enjoyed this podcast because it opened my mind to another perspective. A Black woman, US Citizen, I’ve lived in Germany and experienced some of the same challenges as a guest most recently on the show that has lived in China. Though true, our perspectives differed and was interesting to hear how she navigates the terrain. I loved that the host leaned in on some questions, sought to learn more, and even gifted her own perspective. If you are looking for a podcast you can listen to that is conversational, grab a few laughs, learn a few things for your next traveling adventures...this is it.
