Five Unlikely Things to Pack For Your Overseas Trip

For me, knowing what to pack is always a struggle. Reading all the travel blogs can only take you so far. Packing your luggage correctly is even more important when going overseas because some things you may rely on may not be available. There are certain brands of toiletries I live by, and I know they are not available for purchase in every country.

Being Black in Rome: Planning, Prostitution, and Pasta

Being Black in Rome: Planning, Prostitution, and Pasta By Gabrielle Jeannot Living in Rome, Italy for 5 weeks I’ve developed a love-hate relationship with this beautiful city. I adapted to a lot of their cultural habits and realized both Italians and I share similar values.

All in all, I’ve grown to accept and appreciate the Italian way of living, but hope one day they realize that ignorance kills. Here is somewhat of a guide of what to expect based on my...
