Kristin Iris ,

Great exploration of traveling as a person of color

This was great to listen to. As a Black woman who loves to travel but has apprehensions and concerns it was great hearing experiences from people who look like me going all over the world and in different periods of time. There are eye opening and funny moments shared in stories from people who stepped out of their comfort zones to travel to new places and experience the humanity of people in other cultures. There is a lot you’ll learn without even realizing it because you’re busy taking in a piece of someone’s life, experience, and perspective on themselves and the world after adventuring in it. Definitely give it a listen!
