Founded in August 2011 after noticing an absence in Women of Color traveling, The Globe Trotting Divas was born. Anitra Byers had a passion to trot the globe off limits while exploring different cultures, people and places. In doing so, she felt a need to share her journeys by exposing like minded Women of Color to the value of travel and inviting them to join in on her next adventure.
The Globe Trotting Divas is a full service travel club connecting Women of Color world wide to destinations and cultures they may have otherwise not explored on their own. And for many of us far too often the reasons are friends backing out, family afraid to travel abroad or some one simply couldn’t afford to travel. The wait is over!
Our tours are created for US by US and offer diverse, yet unique cultural and learning experiences without breaking the bank or cashing in your 401k. Women travelers worldwide participate in our off the beaten path travel events exploring new places and meeting new people while creating a new Sistahood.
Sure, we’ll lay on the beautiful beaches of the Caribbean Islands. But we’ll also volunteer at a local school when visiting the country, take dance lessons abroad, eat a different food and talk to a stranger.
While we welcome women from all walks of life to join our travel movement, 99% of our members are Women of Color who love to travel!
Travel is more than a hobby. We are more than a travel club. THIS is Sistahood.
