5 Black travel bloggers and influencers to follow

By: The Outbound Collective + Save to a List

We love when travel bloggers show us new places to go, foods to try, and things to do. Here are five amazing travelers who might inspire your adventure daydreams (and plans)!

1. Joshua Walker

We love that Joshua has a lot of fun with his Instagram, like finding out about free drinks in first class. We can relate to Joshua's relationship with hiking and would have loved to go to Tulum together!

2. Dr. White

We love Dr. White's post about taking a Black History tour in Asheville, NC, with tips on walking and bus tours, and places to visit! Sometimes, she shares travel news like that Australia opened borders for travel again and some information on what you need to be able to enter the country. She's been everywhere from Vegas to Paris and has tips and recommendations to share!

3. Jeff Jenkins

Jeff shares travel inspiration, tips, and experiences as a Plus Size person. We love Jeff's sense of humor, like his post on that feeling when you wake up on the plane and the snack cart has already passed. Check out Jeff's birthday reflections on life lessons so far and a 4x4 outing in Aruba!

4. Franny

Franny is a go-to source for micro-cation inspiration! She shares local adventures with tips on restaurants and things to do! Plus, she posts a lot of Black-owned and -operated businesses you can support!

5. Ruth C. White

Check our Ruth's recommendations for Jamaican food and learn how she got into hiking at age 14! We love reading about her trip to Cusco and recommend listening up for a runway pep talk!
