One Rookie Travel Mistake You Never Want to Make

You’re excited about your trip, right? You’re ready to rip and run these streets and sprinkle your Black girl magic all over.

You’ve been busting your behind saving up your coin to treat yourself and get away from all the stress. So, there couldn’t possibly be a reason why a hardworking, highly intelligent boss chick like yourself would want anything to get in the way of that.

We’re all about keeping it real with you, so please don’t make this common travel mistake:  

Failure to purchase travel insurance.

Like, don’t even think about traveling without travel insurance. These times are not like when you might’ve traveled in the past. With cancellations, delays, and all types of service disruptions happening more often and the last thing you want to do is lose out because you didn’t think you needed travel insurance.

Stay Ready

One thing a Travel Diva always does is stay ready so she doesn’t have to get ready. So be a Diva and purchase travel insurance right now, if you haven’t done so. And do your research and get good insurance that covers you for things you don’t even think you need to be covered for because you just never know …

You’ll thank us later!

Catch that tea, sis!

Feel free to gallivant and check out a trip you could use it for.

6 Ways to Sprinkle Your Black Girl Magic in Ghana

Here at Travel Divas, we’re firm believers that luxury experiences don’t have to happen solely in Europe.

No, you see, there’s a different kind of “je ne sais quoi” you’ll find when you venture out on the road less traveled.
 
And the culturally rich country of Ghana is no exception. In the land of jollof rice (though the Nigerians may fight us on that one), this west African kingdom is brimming with Black girl magic.
 
While you could spend weeks on end exploring Ghana’s gems, we’ve put together 6 quintessential excursions you won’t want to miss when you visit the Motherland with us in 2023.

Let’s dive in:
 
#1: Receive Your African Name
There’s a reason ex-pats travel from across the world every winter to return to Ghana. Besides the sunshine, there’s nothing more heartwarming than being welcomed home. And you’ll fit right in after receiving a traditional Ghanaian moniker at our exclusive African Naming Ceremony.
 
Your new name will remind you that you’re part of something bigger, a global family ready to welcome you with open arms.
 
#2: Visit the Door of No Return
This symbolic door is a powerful part of history, representing the last glimpse of Africa many enslaved people saw before being ripped away from the continent. Bring the tissues, sis. We can’t promise your makeup will stay intact, but we can guarantee that you’ll never be the same after your visit.
 
#3: Shop at the Largest Open-Air Market in Ghana
Lighten up the mood with a bit of shopping at Kejetia Market, the largest open-air market in West Africa. With over 10,000 stores (yes, 10K!), the market is bustling with Ghanaian culture. Put your haggling hat on and keep your eye peeled for the finest African fabrics and handcrafted goods here.
 
#4: Go Royal at Manhyia Palace
Visit the official residence of the Asantehene of Asanteman – the king of the Ashanti. Now a museum, you’ll be amazed by the large amount of historical African art displayed on its walls.
 
#5: Leave Your Mark at Elmina Castle
This UNESCO World Heritage Site was one of the first trading posts built by the Portuguese in the late 1400s and was a key stop on the Atlantic slave trade route. Restored in the 90’s, visiting one of the first European constructions on the continent will give you an inside view at how trade shaped the world.
 
#6: Visit the Birthplace of Adinkra Cloth
Ever see colorful African attire with those bold, powerful symbols stamped on them? That’s Adinkra cloth. And when you come to the village of Ntonso with us, you’ll learn more about their origins and watch how local artisans create the legendary cloth from scratch.
 
We’d keep going, but by the time we’re done sharing all the ways you can sprinkle your Black girl magic in Ghana with us, the few remaining spots we have left will be sold out.

The Name of This City Gives “Divas Only”

Tucked away on the magical Arabian Peninsula is a country most don’t even think to visit. That’s their loss, of course, considering Jordan is a gem we simply can’t allow you to miss as a fellow Travel Diva. 

You see, when a country is home to a destination like “Red Rose City” – you already know it’s Diva time. No need to daydream – just come with us to sprinkle your Black girl magic as you relax under the stars, ride through the desert and release all your stresses in Jordan.

Here are a few enticing highlights of what the full package includes:

8 Nights of Absolute Luxury

From the St. Regin Amman Hotel to the Movenpick Petra to the Kempinski Ishtar Dead Sea, you’ll be treated to the most upscale accommodations Jordan has to offer. Get ready to lay up in complete comfort and leave all the world’s woes behind.

Go Glamping at Luxury Wadi Rum Magic Camp

Sleeping in the middle of the desert might not sound like something a Diva does, but that’s because you haven’t done it like we do. Come glamp with us for a night under the stars on the finest linens and with ALL the amenities you need to sleep like a Diva.

Revel at the Dead Sea

You may very well be familiar with the beautifying effects of all that comes from the Dead Sea, but it’s another thing to see this historical body of water up close. Due to its extreme salt content, a swim is more like an out-of-this-world, meditative floating experience you don’t want to miss.

Hammam Bath

Have you ever heard of a Turkish Bath? This decadent bath is part massage, part cleansing and all parts relaxing and rejuvenating. Your skin will glow and so will the part of you that forgot how good it is to not have a care in the world.

Rome is great. Tokyo is wonderful. The Caribbean? Magic. But Divas don’t just visit the same countries everyone else does.

So go ahead and reserve your tickets now and come be different with us in Jordan in 2024. https://thetraveldivas.com/trip/jordan-2024-trip-2/

Girlfriend, You’ve Never Seen Australia Like This Before

Now, we don’t know about you, but when we were kids, you could always find us playing in the water, sprinkling Black girl magic with every droplet we splashed.

Wouldn’t it be magical if you could experience that same freedom and uninhibited joy in a faraway land – away from the hustle and grind?

Do what Divas do and take a tour in the skies, looking down at Australia’s majestic rainforest in Cairns, Queensland. Three words: Lush. Peace. Serenity!

Glam Welcomes, Dinners & Swimsuit Days

It’s Giving Black Girl Luxury in Seychelles

Now, we don’t know about y’all, but word on the street is you’re tiredt. Yes, with a “t.” And while you can binge-watch Netflix curled up in your cozy Target blankets while sipping on your $9 Starbucks latte to refresh and recharge, can we offer you a warmer, more luxurious and rejuvenating solution?

Now, before you get too excited, Black girl magic is a requirement for this trip.

Red Pool Day Experience

Listen, you can’t go to Cabo without laying up in the pool. But here at Travel Divas, we don’t just lounge; we go in style. That’s why it’s a red-swimsuit moment all day as you sip on your margarita and think about how much you DON’T miss the cold back home. 

A Travel Divas Welcome Event + All-White Farewell Dinner

Good Trouble: Explore Amsterdam Like a Diva

Diva, forget everything you know about Amsterdam. The city is infamous for its Red Light District, but there’s good trouble to get into, too! For starters, it’s incredibly vibrant and lively, with a rich history and culture. Then there are the friendly locals, world-famous museums and of course, the glorious food.

So, it goes without saying that we’re beyond hyped to say “hallo” to one of Europe’s most cosmopolitan cities and get into some good trouble with our crew!

Here’s how to do Amsterdam like a Diva!

Check Off the Only-in-Amsterdam Bucket List

Look, every city has its must-see sights. But Amsterdam takes it to a whole ‘nother level!

See, we’ll be hitting all the stops that make this city iconic. We’ll take in fabulous artwork at the Van Gogh Museum, visit the renowned Keukenhof Garden to see the tulips, and fingers crossed, catch a performance from the Dutch National Opera & Ballet.

And of course, you could wander through the city’s narrow streets, getting lost in the unique architecture and street art around every corner in your downtime.

Give “Lady of the Night” a New Meaning

Amsterdam comes to life at night – nobody parties like the Dutch! As the sun goes down, the streets fill up with people and the energy level goes up a few notches. Our trip wouldn’t be complete without a little celebrating, so we’re going out on the town.

We’ll kick off our trip with an all-white welcome dinner in a revolving restaurant that’ll set the bougiest tone for our time together. And while there’s no shortage of streetside bars and lounges, we’re top-floor kinda gals. That’s why we’ll be hosting our Sunsets & Cocktails Party at the 11th floor Skylounge.

Don’t put away your party clothes just yet, Diva! Make sure you pack a look fit for a socialite, ‘cause we’ll also be cruising the night away on our evening canal tour. 

Dine Decadently on Dutch Cuisine (& Shop Diamonds, Too!)

When it comes to food, there’s a little something for everyone and we’ll be checking out some great spots. From Afternoon Tea at Duchess Tearoom to incredible street food vendors and a sightseeing all-you-can-eat Dutch pancake brunch cruise, you’ll relish every flavor. 

And if you’re feeling adventurous, you can try your fries the way the Dutch prefer theirs: with mayo! (Don’t knock it ‘til you try it!)

Plus, you’ll have plenty of time to peruse the city’s unique shops to bring back all the swag you can carry. The bougiest among us might even cop something at our stop at the legendary Royal Coster Diamonds! 

See, when you travel with Travel Divas, you get all the perks. With our on-site Travel Divas Trip Host to help make your experience stress-free and unforgettable, you can focus on taking in everything Amsterdam has to offer. And of course, you’ll be in the company of some seriously amazing women who are sure to become your new travel girlfriends! 

So what are you waiting for? Come explore Amsterdam with us!
