1. My best travel memory so far is…Going to the very edge of the Cliffs of Moher. I’ve never been more in awe, or humbled by a natural creation. I felt so small yet insanely powerful. It was a sweet contradiction. My problems, my worries they became conquerable and my existence was importance. Its an amazing, eerie, quiet place that everyone should see.

2. My favorite hotel & why…The Casa Aloe, in Granada, Andalucía, Spain. Its the epitome of old, Spanish living. Its surrounded by Almond Orchards, which lend a the nicest rustic vibe and nestled in the Sierra Nevada mountains so the views are breath taking.  Chestnut beams, white bedrock, heated pool. I loved it.

3. My must-haves on any flight are…Two or 3 good books. I love for one of them to take place in the location where I’m going. Tylenol, neck pillow, scented eye covers, Cozy socks, favorite snacks, headphones, my iPad.

4. When I’m on the road, I absolutely hate…Bad music and bad company. It can’t get any worse.

5. My dream destination or vacation is…Iceland. I’m dying to go to Iceland ever since I read a wonderful coming-of-age travel memoir titled What I Was Doing While You Were Breeding. Its absolutely gorgeous there, and rather unchanged by man.

6. The three things I can’t travel without are…A hat, my passport, any my notebook.

7. The top lesson I’ve learned while traveling is… Do be afraid, but don’t let it immobilize you. Fear is natural and unavoidable. However, what is unacceptable is letting it rob you of your moments and experiences. I refuse to leave trips wondering “what if I had, or if only I had.” Be afraid, but be adventurous.

    This woman is a racist.

    To Taiyesha:
    Black people make up 13% of the population of the US but commit 52% of crime. Basically Taiyesha, that means you should probably hand in your baby to the police as soon as he’s born because he’s likely just going to be a criminal right?

    I mean that’s what you said about white people because they can commit crime too. You said white mothers should sacrifice their babies to wolves.

    Here’s an idea Taiyesha, if you hate white people, go to a predominantly black country in Africa. If an entire country without whites is supposedly utopia, then why do you live in the US and visit white countries? Could it be because you’re likely to be killed by a black militia, forced into slavery by black slave traders, abducted by somalia pirates or have the devil exorcized out of you with brutal violence by black villagers if you go to the supposed peaceful lands of Africa?

    How about you realise bad people exist in every race and that skin color doesn’t automatically make someone good or bad? “Y’all” black racists on “black” Twitter are as dumb as the white racists on Stormfront.

    Funny how this bitch who hates white people travels to all our countries, isn’t it? Fuck off ape.

  • Legend Boss

    White people are supposedly so dangerous yet she deliberately chooses to head to countries with prediomately white populations.

    This is “black Twitter” in a nutshell. Constantly slagging off “whitey” but enjoying all the achievements of a white society.

    I say this as a mixed race person. I’ve experienced racism from every group. It amazes me when blacks act as if racism against whites don’t exist when they come out advocating violence to whites just for being white.
