Accra, Ghana - Year Of The Return 2019 - We Fell In Love
I just returned from my first trip "home" to Ghana and I cannot get over the life-changing experience. If you follow my blog, YouTube channel or Instagram, then you know that Ghana was not my first time in Africa. In fact, Ghana was the 10th country that I visited on the beautiful continent. Each country provided a unique experience and great memories that I hold dear to my heart. However, there was something about Ghana... This trip may have been the best trip of my life! I'

Denmark is reported to be the happiest country in the world. Here are some tips to make your trip memorable
SUMMER IN STOCKHOLM
Traveling to Stockholm, Sweden you’ll experience a wonderland of unique experiences, delicious meals, swanky spots for cocktails, and friendly locals who embrace visitors of all backgrounds. I’ve traveled to a little over 50 countries around the globe. If you asked me a few months ago for a list of the top cities that I wanted to visit next, Stockholm would fall somewhere right in the middle of that remaining approximately 110 countries. There are places that I have absolutel
U.S.V.I. – The V Stands for VIBES
Anyone who has been following my travels for a while knows how passionate I am about the Caribbean. Not only is my family from this region of the world, but in my humble opinion it also boasts some of the most flavorful food and people (ha!), the most pristine beaches, produces the best music – reggae, dancehall and soca. I could go on and on. What is there not to love? If someone tells me that they don’t like visiting the Caribbean, I have to give them the side eye… or check
#SafariGoals in Kenya
I’ve aspired to visit Kenya for quite some time now. As a country it offers some of the most diverse experiences, from the beach in Diani/Mobassa, to the bustling capital of Nairobi and the amazing safari and tribe in the Masai Mara. I’ll post more about my full trip later, but first, I can’t wait to share more about the safari experience that we had!

THE ZANZIBAR COLLECTION - LUXURY BOUTIQUE HOTELS WE LOVE
On my recent trip to East Africa (Kenya + Tanzania) we had the pleasure of staying at all four properties of the luxury boutique hotel line, The Zanzibar Collection. From top notch service staff, to perfectly manicured gardens, decadent seafood to views of the Indian ocean, we had a divine experience for all the senses to enjoy. The island of Zanzibar and The Zanzibar Collection lived up to the mysterious, unbothered (in a good way), remote island vibe that you’d expect. As w
HERITAGE JOURNEY PART 1 & 2: TOGO AND BENIN (TRACING MY ROOTS IN AFRICA)
Soul Society 101 family! In an amazing partnership with The Points Guy, I'm kicking off my documentary series, Heritage Journey, in West Africa as I trace my roots based on the results of my Ancestry DNA test. Surprised but thrilled at my DNA results, the first two episodes of the series showcase me in Togo and Benin, which make up 29% of my ancestral makeup. I'm connecting with locals, learning about the kings and queens, visiting slave capture sites, checking out the beauti
Florence, Italy - So Much Charm!
I first visited Italy in April 2017 with my wife, cousins and sister-in-law. We visited 6 regions of Italy – Milan, Florence, Rome, Bologna, Sorrento/Positano/Amalfi Coast and Capri. It was the Italy trip that I always dreamed of. Truth be told I had been holding out on visiting Italy for years because I knew it would be my favorite country in Europe and one that I would need to spend a lot of time exploring, not just a quick pop in and pop out. We spent around 2-4 days in e
Tokyo is too LIT!
OK I'll admit it, I'm about two years late with this blog post. I visited Tokyo during Thanksgiving 2015 and it now almost Christmas 2017. It may be strange but the places that have the biggest impact on me take the longest to digest and write about, because I'm so careful about doing it justice. (Besides Tokyo, other places like this are Italy and Thailand, both of which I visited multiple cities and spent over a week exploring. I will try to force myself to write about in t
