Episode 31: I See London, I See France…Alone

Tiffany from (A)broad in Education and super special guest Thuan (check out his foodie Instagram @travel2f00d) join us to discuss being American while traveling solo.

Moral to the Story: Travel makes you different.

Other Fun Topics Discuss:

  • Tamu is traveling to Europe.
  • Tiffany has two volumes of photos from her trips.
  • Tamu’s flight anxiety.
  • Group consensus: there is plenty to do to keep you distracted on flights.
  • Geography.
  • Tiffany’s Collage: Smoking in Amsterdam
  • Food tastes better in their origin countries.
  • Thuan Recommends: Churchill War Museum
  • Feeling Triggered: Tamu passes on the Heineken Museum because Wight 1 used to drink it. Tiffany suggests going to exorcise the legacy of Wight 1.
  • Tamu is taking a wig to change her persona in Amsterdam.
  • Hair changes your personality.
  • Tiffany suggests wearing a wig throughout the trip.
  • Le Paris Noir Tour.

      Travel & Race & Safety:

  • Don’t read the comments when you Google about being black and travelling.
  • Being American carries more weight than blackness.
  • Travel in Paris.
  • Tales from the Camino de Santiago.
  • Being American can also make you feel like an outsider aside from race/ethnicity.
  • Passports: Concept of US passport as reparations.
  • Head Scratcher Question: Are all Americans colonizers?
  • Americans have a privilege abroad just by being American.
  • Is it radical to travel?

Flutter: Wakanda 4 EVA

Tamu, Mallory, and special guest Sarah discuss the cultural phenomenon that is “Black Panther”. The episode was recorded the weekend “Black Panther” hit theaters and the excitement expressed still rings true a billion+ dollars later.

This time they are late and timely with a pop culture reference because the new Avengers movie comes out April 27th!

Moral to the Story: Wakanda forever, duh!

Other Fun Topics Discussed:

  • Michael B. Jordan vs. Chadwick Boseman vs. Mahershala Ali
  • Discussions about race occurring as a result of “Black Panther”

P.S. At the time of the recording, Tamu had not seen the movie. We are proud to say, she has since seen it twice and cried at various points during each viewing.
