Hi, friends! So we know solo travel seems to be the buzz at the moment, but we fiercely believe in group travel. We mainly travel in our friendship group, but have seen so many other people complain that their friends never come through. We’ve taken it upon ourselves to do some research into group trip organisers – having nobody to travel with shouldn’t keep anyone at home! Here is our find of four group travel coordinators, based in London, that you need to know:

Bringing so colour to your timeline 🙂 Girls run the world I guess, our three beautiful chicas chilling in Chefchaouen looking like a girl band. We will be in Dubai in a few weeks and damn we are looking forward to the photoshoots during our creative session. We’re so excited to host you guys! 📸@williamadoasi . . . . . . . . #windcollective #travelandcreate #livetocreate #globetrotter #betheadventure #VitaeLondon #N00rvana #CamilleHunnigan #stattavel #ForfreedomsSake #Suitcasetravels #TravelBlogger #ForTheCulture #WorkHardAnyWhere #Travel #Travelinstyle #MelaninTravel #suitcasemag #instatravel #TravelNoire #BlackTravelJourney #BlackTravelersUnited #AfroCurls #Wanderlust #TripAddicts #BlackAndAbroad #Travellingwithmelanin
It won’t take you long to notice the intensely high quality of the photography and video content prepared by the Wind Collective’s trips. You’ll discover that whilst booking onto the trip does not include flights it will include your accommodation, activities and a professional photoshoot session with their creative team. If your friends are always letting you down because they can never get your angles right, you won’t have to worry about that with around here. Additionally, if travelling purely for personal gain isn’t your style, Wind Collective have arranged “give back” sessions to enable travellers to have a positive impact with their tourism and do some good with their travels. Our hearts are all warm and fuzzy – how’s that for flights and feelings?

Black British Travel Meet Up
BBTMU does an amazing job of drawing the black British travel community together, particularly those based in and around London. After a successful year of meet ups, from a group bowling night to a summer day party at Facebook’S London HQ , BBTMU hosted their first group trip to The Netherlands in September 2018. Unfortunately we couldn’t join, but we know a few people who did and it looked like they all had an amazing time. We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled on the TL for news of another trip in the same way we do for news of their London meet up events!
- Previous Trip(s): Amsterdam and Eindhoven – The Netherlands, September 2018
- Upcoming Trip(s): TBC – keep up with the community on Twitter and Instagram @BBTravelMeetUp
