I’ve been in Ghana for going on three weeks, spending a week traveling through Togo and it’s already been an amazing experience. So I thought it would be a fun and interesting conversation to talk about my first impressions as an African American in West Africa.

I will definitely be doing a follow up post on traveling as a tourist to West Africa, cause girl, it is not easy. But with a heightened interest in Black millennial travel, it’s worth having a discussion on in hopes of making it easier. Puerto Rico and Dominican Republic can’t get all the travel shine.

Comment below and let me know if there are any other topics specific to my travels in West Africa. You can follow me on Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat and Instagram to see my travels.
