Fly Brother Profiled at

The good people at, "advocates for the art of travel," interviewed me this month about some of my opinions, thoughts, feelings, and experiences while exploring Earth. Their mission, like mine, is to try and debunk some of the mystique of travel that keeps it conceptually out of many people's reach. "Travel like a rebel," Travellious encourages, and entices readers with sumptuous photography and intriguing profiles of independent globetrotters ;-)

In case you didn't get the hint, click here to see my interview. Then, click here to vote for Travellious as the 2009 Bloggie Awards' "Best Travel Weblog." Then smile because you've done something good for humanity.

Fly Brother!!!

Just stumbled upon your blog. As a sista who loves to travel, I gobbled up your posts! You are a man after my own heart. I'm a teacher, too, who taught internationally in France and Mexico and is thinking about teaching internationally again (Destination: Asia???). Anyhoo, what do you think of Barranquilla and Colombia in general?! I am going to a teach abroad job fair and the international school from Barranquilla will be there.. Holla!

btw I have 17 countries on 4 continents (I think?) under my belt... I'ma give you a run for your money... lol

Hey I've read your blog a few times and decided to go ahead and follow it. The interview was cool. Keep changing the perception that people have of black Americans. People's perceptions don't actually change who you are but they sure change the experience you have when you choose to walk out of your front door.

so in my recent travels i had your post about just getting on a plane with NOTHING stuck in my brain and ALMOST did it (since it was cold in paris and london, and i was coming from delhi via my home in nigeria, i needed to carry some winter clothes :(), still though, i thought you might appreciate that i ALMOST carried out your suggestion (and just might someday soon). keep on travelin' and writin' and inspirun'...

p.s. since barak loving was happening all over the world, i think it's a good move that you didn't fly to d.c. for it this time round. i know in dubai, where i was at the time of the inauguration, people were celebrating like it was the first time the u.s. has elected someone with so much to offer... uh, which it of course, was.

Oneika: Your blog's my next major reading assignment. I'll have to shoot you an email about Barranquilla...lots to say.

Geotraveler: I'm tryna be like YOU!

Greg: Thanks for reading, man. You hit the nail on the head when you said people's perceptions change the experience you completely affects the way people interact with you, both positively and negatively.

Kelly Jo: Kudos for ALMOST hitting the air bag-free. I applaud your effort, lol. Unfortunately, the reaction to Obama's victory and inauguration was extremely subdued here in Colombia. He's not as popular here as you'd think. I'm going to blog about it next week.
