To be honest... I didn't think we'd be approaching 100 so fast, but here we are! In no time at all we went from 88 to 90. So to our future 100th follower, you too will receive a gift and postcard from abroad. Your options will be Thailand, Camodia, Hong Kong or Vietnam. We are some travelling ladies. Keep an eye out, and if you're our 100th follower; please screenshot you being 100 ( in case we miss it with travel and time differences) and hit our DM. **If you bring our 100th follower, you too will receive a small token of appreciation. ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜ Tag, share, and like this post. You never know what goodies might come your way. We look forward to growing our ig travel family. ๐Ÿ’‹Melaninmoncheri #blackwomentravel #melanintravel #melaninmoncheri #sheisnotlost

As some of you know half of #melaninmoncheri ( @jadedreamsntings) lives in China. 8 is a lucky number in China and her fav number. In honour of my upcoming trip back home, I'll be sending our 88th follower @nikarashaun a postcard from Toronto, Beijing or both if you'd like. Please DM for my travel dates, and to let me know from where you'd like a post card. Congrats and thanks for the love all. ๐Ÿ’‹melaninmoncheri

Mt. Batur, Bali Indonesia ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฉ --------------------------------------------- We all have fears. Fear of heights, fear of travelling alone, fear of failure, fear of what if's and maybes. I conquered all of the above when I climbed an active yet sleeping volcano in Bali. We started the trek at 2am, and arrived at the summit in time to watch the sunrise. I was gripped with fear leading up to, and during the climb. But I have zero regrets, even after a broken knee in the way down ๐Ÿ˜ญ. Moral of the story... take your fears... and crush them. You'll come out stronger on the other side ๐Ÿ˜ -------------------------------------------- #MelaninMonCheri #Bali #Indonesia ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฉ#blacktraveljunkies #blacktravelfeed #glt#gltlove #glt #gltmixtries #travelblogger #melanintravel #naturalwanderlust #blacktraveljourney

The Moon and sandalwood may not, at first, seem to have much in common, but the association comes from the fact that the words for both โ€œMoonโ€ and โ€œsandalwoodโ€ are spelled and pronounced identically. #vientiane #laos #laostyle #mel#melaninmoncheri #melanintravel #gltlove #blackwomentravel #melanininasia #visitlaos #wanderlust #travelblogger #melanin
