Hi, I’m T. Michelle, The Travel Sista. I’m a black female from the USA and I love to travel. I grew up in Detroit, Michigan, which shares a border with Canada. As a child, my family took regular road trips to Windsor, Toronto, Niagara Falls and other Canadian cities (At that time, you could easily cross the border with nothing more than a birth certificate, which wasn’t even regularly checked. Now, you need a passport or passport card). It was my first introduction to a different country, culture, and language. And it made me want to see more of the world.
Fast forward more years than I care to admit. I graduated high school, went to college, and then started my career as a lawyer. Somehow my plans to see the world took a backseat to student loans and other adult obligations. Like most Americans, my vacations took the form of weekend trips, family holiday visits, and one-week escapes. I was lucky to travel throughout the United States, but only minimally abroad. I recently vowed to change that. I set a life goal to visit every continent, and as many countries within each, as I possibly can. Thus far, I’ve traveled to Canada, Mexico, Jamaica, the Bahamas, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Brazil, and France. Obviously, I’ve got a lot more traveling to do. Come join me as I explore the world.
