Hi! Kyia here
I got my Love of travel from my parents who traveled the U.S. from coast to coast via their cool Cadillacs. Every summer we took fun road trips to Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee to visit family. Those days are such treasured memories as mom would frantically tell dad to slow down and dad would turn the music volume up and drive a bit faster just to make mommy mad.
Interesting that I never thought about traveling internationally until I attended Bennett College in Greensboro, NC since they offered a foreign exchange program. During freshman year I asked my mom could I go to Cancun Mexico for spring break and she said No which of course made me want to go even more. I was born and raised in the Bronx, New York (Co-op City) and I currently reside in quiet & lovely Durham, North Carolina. I’m a fabulous cat mom to 2 adorable sweet kitties named Marley & Sheba.
November 12, 2001, I took my first solo cruise to the Bahamas for my Birthday and had a fabulous blast. Being a water sign (Scorpio) I am officially hooked to cruising. March 2007, I began my 9 year career with Delta Air Lines and had the privilege to visit many amazing places Senegal, Paris, Nice, Monaco, London, Amsterdam, Costa Rica, Jamaica, St. Thomas, St. John, St. Kitts, St. Maarten, St. Lucia, Aruba, Bermuda, Barbados, Puerto Rico and Dominican Republic. To date, I’ve now traveled on 16 cruises and I want to add 2,500 more under my belt.
During my travels, I was either the only person of color or sprinkled in with a small few other people of color. It made me wonder why I don’t see many people that look like me traveling? Traveling the world is a beautiful privilege and I desire for more of us to experience this privilege and that’s why I started my Travel Agency.
