Hi, my name is Stephanie

I’m an Ohio native, and journalist by trade. When I'm not working, I'm usually planning or taking my next trip. I fell in love with traveling when I was 10, during my first plane ride to California. Since then, I've become fluent in Spanish and have lived in three countries-the Dominican Republic, Colombia, and my homeland, the United States. In all, I've visited twelve different countries, along with San Andres, Puerto Rico, and French Polynesia. I hope to add many more to this list!

I often travel with my husband, or my mother. Sometimes, I'll go on the occasional girl's trip or solo trip. I love beaches, big cities, dance and anything related to black culture and history. I hope this blog inspires you to explore new places and try new things. Feel free to leave a comment on the blog or follow me on social media. @blacktrekking on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube.
