Having the time to reflect and meditate is my favourite thing about travelling solo!  Reading the book #homegoing by #yaagyasi whilst in Cuba was a great read that allowed me to reflect on the interconnections of the African diaspora, specifically in America. 
WHAT are some of your favourite books to read when travelling?

🇩🇴 We are interrupting our social media break to introduce you all to @DominicanAbroad whose Dominican Diaspora Tour is one that cannot be missed! Here’s what it’s all about.

This is a more culturally immersive and wholesome travel experience into the different corners of DR while  re-connecting to our heritage, history, and culture. We are taking you to experience everything from countryside rural living, to local hot spots in the capital, to exploring historic desert mountain towns, to enjoying remote beaches and so much more. As we experience the different parts of the Dominican Republic, we will also meet local Dominicans from all parts of life (from historians to chefs to kuranderas) who we can connect, learn from and share with.

This curated experience aims for travelers to better understand and connect with the history, influences, and effects that make up much of our Dominican heritage: African, Taino, and European colonization. As travelers gain a deeper understanding about the complex history of the island we'll also immerse ourselves into different parts of current Dominican society through cooking lessons in the Monte Plata campo to honoring our Afro-heritage with a Congos/Fiesta de palo in Villa Mella to the pink salt pans and tall sand dunes of Bani to taking private boats through remote islands--and so much MORE! We’ll get a taste of the different things DR has to offer.

DM @DominicanAbroad if you're interested in collaborating/joining this experience. Mention code: LAGALERIAMAGAZINE to save $100 off your tour!

Thanks to Michel Sajous for hosting us at Guildive Chelo to taste and demo Clarin Sajous. Made in my home town of St. Michel de L'attalye. 9am tasting- started the day off right. We are known for the best agricol rum in the country. If it's not from St. Michel it's not the good stuff.  #Blackartsretreat #LinkstoHaiti #djasporaproductions #diasporatravel

I stopped by this street art mural on my last day Rio and felt inspired to pay Homage to Black Women of Brazil... .
.
If we think about the role of Black women in Brazilian history, she's pretty much shaped Brazilian society. The country has fed from her nipples, rested on her bossom, danced to the rhythm of her hips... she's birthed every shade of black and white under the sun - so why is she so undeservingly under-represented and undervalued?...
.
.
Being a 'rainbow nation' comes with the responsibility of ensuring diverse perspectives and representation - particularly that of darker skin black women (not all black women are 'mulata' with light skin and soft curly hair), indigenous communities, trans women and other marginalised groups.
.
.
As a black woman with multifacited identities (African, Black, British, Ghanaian, German surname, Brazilian returnee ancestry) I know how important it is to share diverse stories that don't paint black women as 'one thing'. Black Women of Brazil, I see so much of myself in you. You are loved. You are respected. You are appreciated.  Continue to break boundaries - you're not alone. It's a worldwide moment of empowerment 🙌🏾✨🎉🖤

Will be sharing more on the www.travelmakerkai.blog in the New Year ✨

On Christmas Day it was exactly 4 months ago, that I stepped onto the plane in my hometown with NYC as my first destination. When I hugged my mom goodbye I started crying. Sitting in the plane I was still crying. Not because I was sad, but because this trip has been on my heart and mind for a really long time. By stepping on that plane I took action towards my desires.💕 And ever since then I've been blessed to have made soul connections that have inspired me in a multitude of different ways, and friends I know I'll have for a lifetime, to have seen sides of myself I didn't know existed and to have gained the feeling that i'm walking on my path and in my purpose a little bit more than before. I've been blessed in ways I couldn't even have anticipated before actually taking the courage to go on this journey.✨ I never want to call it courageous though, because in a sense there was no other option than saying goodbye to the known and stepping into a sea of new lands, experiences and encounters. I don't share as much of what is going on in my mind on here, because a lot of it is very raw and abstract and I have a hard time of putting it into a format that i feel comfortable sharing. But my heart and mind are being nourished and stretched. And looking back I'm truly amazed at how much life, experience and lessons I was fortunate to pack into these past four months. I'm grateful for all of it. 💙

And just like that, I’m back. My trip to Cuba was very enlightening and I really enjoyed it. My trip wasn’t the typical and I thank @diaspora_travel_trade for that. In 3 days, I lived, slept and breathed the city of Havana...I had lunch with and learned about the Santeria religion from a Babalawo (and received a blessing!), I had salsa dancing lessons, I visited a museum on the Africa-Cuba connection, I donated to and visited a community youth arts center, I got artsy at a former oil factory turned premiere art gallery and nightclub, I had dinner with a famous Cuban Hip Hop duo, I jammed to Cuban Timba and Jazz music nightly, I attended a colonial cannon shooting ceremony on top of a fortress, and I ate traditional meals and drank traditional drinks every day...and this doesn’t fully capture all I experienced. Throughout my trip, I was able to be more present than usual because of the limited WiFi access and for that I’m thankful. I’ve longed to visit Cuba for years to learn about the culture and I’m thankful to have finally had the opportunity. I guess my Orishas led me here when it was right 😉.

Voy echando!

"Pull back your hair" they said. "It will look good" they said. 3 friends trying to get me to pose right and I still mess it up. Forever awkward in front of the camera. The snapshot captured my laughter though and that one was real. 😻 #gratefulfordayslikethese #bodypositivity #bodypositive #curvycurlyconscious #youngandfree #cartagena #colombia #solotravel #femalesolotravel #diaspora #diasporatravel #africandiaspora #travelnoire #globaljetblack #blacktravelista #shetravels #sheisnotlost #mytravelcrush #essencetravels #travelisthenewclub #blacktraveljourney #blackandabroad #dametraveler #blackgirlstravel #girlswhotravel  #girlsborntotravel #soultravel #nomadness #melaninmajority
A way too large part of my travel budget goes towards foods and drinks. Issa problem. I know. I'll forever be the person that shamelessly happy dances at the table when my order arrives 😻 My favorites in Cartagena were: Alquimico for cocktails with infused alcohol 🍸 & some hip hop for my slightly deprived soul. La Mulata for delicious seafood and the necessary side order of sweet plantains 🐟 🍌 . Demente for delicious tapas & drinks 🍹 . El Baron for the same. Café Mural for its coconut coffee shake and sweets ☕ . Paleteria for ice cream made with local fruits 🍉🍦. Plenty of food pictures missing because my hungry ass couldn't wait to dig in. Oh well 🤷🏽‍♀😋😍 #cartagena #colombia #colombiaeats #cartagenaeats #foodie #foodieforlife #willtravelforfood #foodpassion #solotravel #femalesolotravel #diaspora #diasporatravel #africandiaspora #travelnoire #globaljetblack #blacktravelista #shetravels #sheisnotlost #mytravelcrush #essencetravels #travelisthenewclub #blacktraveljourney #blackandabroad #blackgirlstravel #girlswhotravel  #girlsborntotravel #soultravel #nomadness #melaninmajority
