It’s no exaggeration to say that The Caribbean Is Calling – an editorial package I put together for Travel + Leisure to celebrate Caribbean-American Heritage Month in June – is a highlight of my career. I loved sharing the richness of the region – and the talents of the Caribbean creatives who contributed to the package – with the world, and if you haven’t already, I encourage you to check out their stories.
In July, co-editor Heather-Greenwood Davis and I were proud to launch our second editorial package for TripAdvisor. Themed The Summer of Love, it features stories by Black writers about everything from how to be a more conscious traveller to how to take advantage of overseas remote work programs, offering advice and inspiration as we dip our toes back into travel.
You may know that I host the Complete Caribbean podcast, a bi-monthly roundup of Caribbean news and travel trends, with Brian Major for TravelPulse.com. You might not know, however, that I also write a monthly feature for the site. Most recently, I shared tips for Caribbean travel right now, and for visiting the USVI and BVI specifically.
As I write this I’m just back from a 7-night Caribbean cruise aboard Windstar Cruises’ Star Breeze. I was curious to see what sailing is like during this unprecedented time (spoiler: pack your patience and be flexible!), and I shared daily updates on my Instagram feed. If you missed it live, check out the Star Breeze highlight, here.
