  • Oh man those look delicious

  • Powdered sugar all over my face.

On November 1, 2017, The #PassportPartyProject has an announcement to make. And all I can say is you're going to wish you were a Phase 4 teen girl. #IJS (It's not too late for girls 11-15 to apply for that first passport via the Phase 4 tab on the Web site.) #powerofthepassport #passportready #passportgram #riteofpassage #teentravel #travelabroad #travelanthropy #travelchannel #doalittle #travelgrowrepeat #travel #studyabroad #diversityabroad #blacktravelfeed #blacktravelmovement #latinotravel #hispanictravelbloggers #latinotravelerscollective #latinatravel
I can't think of one time I've been to France and didn't see #Oakland represented; this time in #Avignon. It's hella awesome. #oaktown #oaklandloveit #oaklandish #oaklandpride #ihellaloveoakland
.
If this joyful 11 year old face (of a leader!) flaunting her very first passport doesn't make you smile, I don't know what will!
.
I approved 9 passport scholarship applications today on behalf of The #PassportPartyProject & received an email from Chicago with Kiersten's photo along with her thank you note:
.
"I am so glad that now I can go to places outside [of] the United States. Having a passport means I can visit the places that I’ve read about. I appreciate this opportunity...and I’m looking forward to filling up my book with many stamps."
.
It's Friday the 13th and today is a really good day! Congratulations, Kiersten! 🤸🏾‍♀️🤸🏾‍♀️🤸🏾‍♀️ #powerofthepassport #riteofpassage #teentravel #travelabroad #travelanthropy #travelchannel #doalittle #travelgrowrepeat #itsrainingpassports #travel #studyabroad #diversityabroad #passportgram #passportready #leader #passportinspiration

A darling gift handmade with love from a friend who hand delivered it to me in France as a belated birthday gift. 😍 I call her Wander. #sheswearingapassportaroundherneck #handmadedoll #whatfriendsdo #wander #traveltuesday
Four years ago today, I was named a @natgeotravel Traveler of the Year for my work with The #PassportPartyProject (currently in Phase 4). You have NO IDEA how stunned I was when I got the call I was being vetted. I actually thought they were going to call me back and say they made a mistake. 💯 (It's National Geographic, people!) Instead, I was invited to speak live onstage at NatGeoLive! in Washington D.C. I remain humbled and proud and tickled by the memory. I think it's a really cool memory with which to start the day. And yes, sometimes I still can't believe they chose me. 🙋🏽🌍✈️ 📷: On stage with Editor in Chief @georgewstone. #happyanniversarytome #passportgram #powerofthepassport #travelanthropy #doalittle #travelgrowrepeat #blackgirlmagic #blacktravelmovement #travelabroad #studyabroad #blacktravelfeed #teentravel #travelchannel #passportstories #diversityabroad #passportready #womenintravel

I woke up this morning & followed a Facebook tag about a woman's *passport testimony* after she heard about The #PassportPartyProject. 😍 #allinmyfeelings
.
"When I was a 20-something reporter, a certain editor doubted my skills and underestimated my readiness to handle assignments outside of the city and outside of the 'hood. As a result, he denied me the opportunity to cover an international event--the U.S. invasion of the Caribbean island of Grenada--even though I was arguably the reporter on staff who was most knowledgeable about the subject.
.
I had solid sources in South Florida's Grenadian community, I followed their politics and their island government's problems with the Reagan Administration and wrote about it. I even interviewed their president Maurice Bishop before he was assassinated.
.
But my qualifications weren't enough to keep the editor from passing me over and handing the assignment to a reporter who openly admitted that she was clueless about the place.
.
I was miserable about being passed over, but I also had a brief moment that was self-affirming. That moment came when the editor asked me whether I had a passport.
.
I will never forget how stunned he looked when I told him that I did. It felt so good telling him, 'Yes, I do.' That was not the answer that he expected from a black reporter who liked covering local communities of color.
.
That left him with no valid reason to base his decision on, only his own bias about who I was.
.
But even though my passport does not have a stamp from the island of Grenada, it has been my 'road dawg' for more than 30 years and is full of stamps from many other islands, countries and continents from around the world.
.
I highly recommend having a passport as part of your life portfolio--especially the portfolios of 'local' Black girls with global minds." ~Linda Jones / Writer, Author, Activist

I have been curating & hosting exceptional experiences in Paris (for women) for awhile now (see also @onebrowngirlinparis for my France IG) & am now turning my expertise towards my other love: California.
.
As a native of Los Angeles that has made my home in the Bay Area for close to 20 years, I have camped (glamped) & explored my home state since I was a babe. #stillababe I even wrote an article for Travel Channel about Camping in California & most recently became a certified Star Agent via @visitcalifornia (though I admit I didn't need a CVB to tell me that I'm a California star 😉.)
.
I guess this is a very long way to tell you that registration has today opened for Tracey Friley Travel's *Bay Area Bliss*, a very special 5-night experience in San Francisco with day trips to Sonoma, Napa & Oakland for 20 adventurous women who like wine tasting & a good time. I'm SO excited! I won't waste anymore keystrokes telling you how I curate every single moment or give you the epic details here on IG because you can find everything on TraceyFrileyTravel dot com.
.
I only curate 4 trips a year (customized trips are a lot of work), so I hope to see you on at least one of them. I'm proud to say I get a lot of repeat guests & they always have a really good time. 🤸🏾‍♀️ Thanks for listening. [California Seller of Travel 2119897]

TO MY PASSPORT SPONSORS: "Thank you for giving me the opportunity to travel everywhere my heart desires. [By] having this passport, I will be able to travel to different countries to pursue my dream of being a biologist. Your generosity and support will expand my knowledge of the world and will allow me to discover scientific phenomen[a] that will one day benefit the entire world." ~13 year old #PassportPartyProject teen Kennedy S. of Chicago IL #powerofthepassport #teentravel #travelabroad #travelanthropy #travelchannel #doalittle #travelgrowrepeat #itsrainingpassports #travel #studyabroad #passportawarenessmonth #diversityabroad
