My Top 5 Travel Pet Peeves

Sunday, August 12th, 2012 | Posted under Travel General, Uncategorized, Video, Vlogging

Hey, everyone!

Here’s a vlog in support of the Traveling Brown Girl Blogging Carnival. I decided to talk. Clearly I say “like” too much, but I hope you enjoy the vlog anyway. I’ll let you know who else is participating in the blogging carnival for this month later this week.

 

By the way, what are YOUR travel pet peeves?

Passport Party Project

Friday, November 11th, 2011 | Posted under Personal, Travel General, Vlogging

Hey, all!
I thought I would do a vlog since I haven’t done one in awhile. Video on two posts in one week. Oh my! 🙂
As mentioned in the video, here’s the link for the Passport Party Project so that you can learn more about it. I’ll be helping with the Passport Party Project events next summer in New York City and will be sure to blog about it.
When did you get your first passport? Where did you go after you received it? What has having a passport meant to you?
Happy Weekend!

Where to Next? – Return to Wadadli!/Beach Snobbery

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011 | Posted under Antigua, Personal, Video, Vlogging, Where to Next?

Hellloooo!!! Remember me?!!

I’ve had a fairly unintended whirlwind couple of weeks, but that just means a whole lot more to share with you all. I ended up being away for a little longer than I would have liked, but it allowed me to have some quality time with some great people. Anyway, enough of me being coy. I’ll let you know where I went in the video.
(By the way, I totally didn’t mean for that to be a gratuitous bikini shot. I was supposed to be a bit more covered. 🙁 Also I know the waves make it hard to understand me at parts, but that’s what happens when you’ve only got a Flip video camera and still learning video editing.)
By the way, Wadadli is the name given to Antigua by its native peoples, the Arawaks and later the Carib Indian tribes.
So, yes, I visited one of my favorite places in the entire world, Antigua. I got to see my family, which made me very happy. I was sad to leave this time. I miss them. I need to make sure that I return more often. The last visit was three years ago. I must do better. I’ll be sharing the trip in the next couple of weeks. Be prepared for some beautiful beach shots and down home local Caribbean food.

Points to whoever guesses what tropical fruit this is!

Different Country, Different Customs – Saudi Arabia

Friday, August 26th, 2011 | Posted under Expat Week, Guest Post, Video, Vlogging

I am beyond thrilled to end Expat Week with a bang….and a vlog! My namesake Terri made a vlog just for us!! Terri Lundberg is an American expat who has been living in Saudi Arabia for three years. Originally from California, she is a self-professed travel addict, photographer, trailing spouse, and mother. She’s been to 85 destinations in 22 countries and looking forward to more. She writes about her travels and produces hilariously opinionated and honest vlogs about her life as an expat. You can keep up with her on her blog blackchickontour.com. – T



In this video, I discuss how I feel about being a female expat living in Saudi Arabia and how I’m affected and not affected by the customs and culture of Saudi Arabia. Even though I reside on a “Western/Expat” compound, it’s not just Americans on the camp. There are people from all over the world (think 3rd world), including Saudis. It makes for a weird mix. So, even though I’m on a compound and I pretty much live like I would in the United States, there are still some things that make me conscious of where I am. That’s typically related to what I’m wearing. You can watch the video to hear more about that.

Also, in the video I make reference to a situation with my vacuum cleaner. LOL. 🙂 If you want to get the back story the link to the post is here: http://blackchickinsaudi.blogspot.com/2009/10/too-funnythe-vacuum-cleaner.html Check it out for a quick laugh.
