UrbanTravelGirl is my blog on living globally through international travel. I’m a passionate believer in the ability of travel to not only transform the way we see the world, but ourselves. As an African-American woman, I’ve developed an even greater sense of who I am by leaving the United States, visiting nearly 35 countries and territories, spending nearly one year working as a freelance writer in Florence, Italy, and one year living and working in Samois-sur-Seine, a charming village near Paris.
