30 Group Trips You Can Join In 2018

Travel

The 'gram will have you out here thinking that everybody hit the lottery, quit their job, and is suddenly kicking it around the world. You know how it is.


You sign in, scroll for a few seconds, and are like, "Is Keisha is on vacation AGAIN?" Did Jay drop his kids off at Chuck E Cheese and never look back? How did Cousin Pookie go from not having a passport to stuntin' on a camel with a bunch of well-dressed strangers?

If you're wondering if Oprah sent out a you-get-a-flight email that you somehow missed, relax. She hasn't (yet), but these days she doesn't need to. Travel groups have made it so much easier for people to see the world, and the internet is simply spreading the good news!

So if you don't have the time to plan your own trip, or your friends have 99 problems when it's time to book (i.e. I don't know if I can make it because my Yorkie needs a sitter with good heat – the trip is in November, right?) – you're in luck. Here are 21 group trips you can join in 2018!

Note: Several trips sold out as I was writing this, but as of today these trips are all still open or have wait lists you can join!

'P-Valley' & 10 Other Shows That Feature Empowered Black Characters

I vividly recall my mother implying that TV couldn’t teach me much of anything, but in reality, we know that representation teaches us a lot! It empowers us and highlights diverse ways of Black life (more so in recent television history) that vary from traditional to not so traditional – though this makes the impact no less real. Television shows like P-Valley highlight the importance of human decency over respectability politics, while other shows allow us to see the value in falling through life with our awkwardness.

Here's Why You Should Ditch Fourth Of July And Have A Family Reunion Instead

“Who made the potato salad?” As summertime kicks off, this is the universal question that, without fail, will be asked at every barbeque and backyard kickback over the coming months. With the Fourth of July also nearing, summertime celebrations and cookouts will be in full force. However, as the tide begins to turn in this new day and age, more Black Americans are celebrating Juneteenth, instead of the Fourth of July, because, after all, there were still over 250,000 Black Americans enslaved in Galveston, Texas during this so-called Independence Day.

Summer Walker Gets Honest About Motherhood And Her Child's Father: ‘I Wish I Paid More Attention’

The “Body” singer worked on her first album with her now ex-boyfriend, producer London On Da Track, and they welcomed a daughter together, Princess Bubblegum. Their relationship was challenged by cheating rumors, and the 26-year-old found herself going back and forth with London’s exes on social media for consistently bashing the singer and the producer.
