A Brief Blog Profile: BrownGirlsFly
In observance of February's Black History Month, PR Newswire's multicultural experts are profiling some notable blogs. For the next couple of weeks, we'll take a close look at a number of diverse African-American blogs that cover a range of topics, from urban automobiles and travel adventures to beauty and relationships.
BrownGirlsFly is a self-proclaimed "melanin-infused perspective on travel." It details the travel adventures of sisters Chelle and Crystal, who worship the chance to experience as many new languages and cultures as they can firsthand. They’ve produced the blog with hopes to "encourage as many people as possible to leave their comfort zones and see the world for themselves."
Well, five continents and 27 countries later, they certainly have what it takes for a travel blog. BrownGirlsFly is infused with a plethora of knowledge, travel news, tips and tricks, as well as deals and promos. The site also features an Instagram feed, music, a reading list for those long flights ahead, and videos.
Blog posts include "Travel Etiquette: Our Top 5+ Travel Pet Peeves" and the inspiring "15 Trips We'd Take Just To See A Building," where the ladies state the obvious like the Eiffel Tower in Paris. They also point out how fascinating it would be to visit Southwest Bavaria in Germany to see Neuschwanstein Castle (the inspiration for the Disney World and Disneyland castles).
BrownGirlsFly is a stimulating blog that not only will make you want to get your passport and call your travel agent, but you'll want to book a flight to a land far, far away. BrownGirlsFly takes part in the "Traveling Brown Girls Blog Carnival," a #traveltastic series of global meet-ups hosted by @OneBrownGirl, @AbsoluteADT, @CarolACain, @Monique_Rubin and @BrownGirlsFly.
