Welcome to my site, all about wine and travel. I am thrilled that you are here and it is my hope that I can provide you with some really great curated content that will inspire you to travel the world, but first let me tell you a little bit more about me and my first love.
My First Love.
My first love has always been writing. I went to college for English Writing with the hopes that I would become a Hip Hop journalist... I graduated from a 4 year private institution with really high hopes to write for magazines like Vibe and Word Up. Unfortunately or fortunately for me, depends on how you look at it, my interest in writing about the likes of Biggie and Tupac faded when I didn't think I could attend concerts and events by myself in busy cities. I am the definition of an extrovert introvert and breaking out of my shell would mean really stepping outside of my comfort zone. I just didn't feel quite ready to do that at the ripe age of 20. So, I started blogging about my thoughts about music and asking other people to leave their personal reviews on topic on my Xanga page (I totally just dated myself right there...) I eventually went on to work for the historical Black Newspaper, the Call and Post, owned by the infamous Don King. This was my first job out of college and I learn so much about myself and about the world of blogging when I started a Christian Relationship Blog called Cup of Expresso. I published posts periodically but there is only so much you can say about relationships when you haven't had much success in one. I was really, really single and unexperienced. I decided to give it up for a while until I lived enough experiences to give sound relationship advice. I'd start three more blogs before getting to Wine Travel Chick.
Why Wine Travel
I chose wine travel because I believed it would be a great way to show my appreciation for the historic and continuous relationship between land and people. There is something biblical about wine, literally and figuratively. Jesus turned water to wine. I love the idea that land gives us joy through what it bears for us in fruit. There are so many stories connected to our culture and pride.
