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!

In I Know Why a Caged Bird Sings, poet and author Maya Angelou details the five-year period of her childhood when she was mute – unable to speak – after the man who had raped her was murdered shortly after being released from jail. “My voice killed that man,” Angelou recounts in an interview with Oprah Winfrey on how her seven-year-old logic led to her years-long bout of self-imposed silence. It was only through her voracious love of the written word that she would eventually reclaim her voice.

With the hectic lives we’ve lived in a pandemic these past two years, it's easy to feel as though 2022 will be a repeat of what preceded it. While I can't predict what the future holds, I can guarantee that there will be plenty of exciting moments filled with unforgettable looks ahead. As we press reset, one way to head into a new year is by making space in preparation for more to come in our lives, especially in our closets. When it comes to accessories, handbags are my weakness.

For many, the new year signifies a time for growth, new beginnings, and fresh starts. It's a time to set the tone for the year ahead by making resolutions, setting intentions, and creating lists of goals. All for the sole purpose of improvement and to manifest the life of one's dreams. Over the years, like millions of people worldwide, I have made numerous commitments towards having a healthier lifestyle.

Y'all remember the show Girlfriends? It was my first introduction to what my 20s could possibly look like with my closest friends. For me, it was a nice dream for little ol' me to look forward to when I grew up. Now that I’m grown, honey, adulting is not a joke. There are many responsibilities to have, mistakes to make, and breakups to recover from. It is a struggle but a beautiful one. Today, there are a few shows that still highlight amazing Black women living their lives and navigating the ups and downs with their day-ones by their side.
