3 Ideas for Active Family Vacations

Thursday March 21st, 2019 09:06:44 PM Oneika

Did you know that I’m a runner? I’ve run a number of 10k races, four half marathons and even sputtered through one full marathon (spoiler alert: it was HARD)! While I always joke that I run so I can eat (#greed), the truth is that I value my physical health and find running an excellent way to keep fit. But that’s not the extent of my interest in athletics and physical well-being. Despite my hectic travel schedule, I run wherever and whenever possible. I’ve hoofed it in places as disparate as Bahrain, Bali and Brooklyn, and have loved every minute of it. But what happens when running doesn’t fit into my travel plans? Well, I try to stay as active as possible on vacation anyway, incorporating activities like hikes into my itinerary… and dragging my friends and family into the mix! After all, the family that plays together, stays together, am I right? In my latest post on Alamo’s Scenic Route, I’m sharing my active and adventurous family vacation ideas so you can do the same.  Read my article here!

Wellness Travel and Tours by G Adventures: Everything you need to know

Wednesday March 13th, 2019 09:33:46 PM Oneika

Most of us travel to discover new places, learn about a destination’s culture, and cloak ourselves in a sense of wonder, excitement, and adventure we may not have otherwise experienced back home.  But what about travelling to slow down, to find balance, and to reconnect with the world (and ourselves)? Wellness Travel and Tours presented by G Adventures Enter G Adventures, which just launched their newest collection of tours dedicated to Wellness and Self-Care. Not familiar with G?  It’s a small group adventure tour company that helps travellers explore the world responsibly and sustainably, and I have the pleasure of being one of their resident ambassadors and storytellers (otherwise known as Wanderers). As part of the ambassador gig, I participate in and share information about their wildly diverse tour offerings (they have over 700 tours spanning the globe) and initiatives. If you’ve been following me for a while, you may recall that last year I had the time of my life exploring the culture and wildlife of Uganda and Rwanda on their 8-day itinerary. The fact I enjoyed myself so immensely comes as no surprise: visiting the African continent and learning more about the people and history is one of my […]

4 Ways to Make Vacations with Your Significant Other Memorable

Friday January 11th, 2019 06:02:52 PM Oneika

Travel is a big part of my relationship with my husband Liebling: Not only have we journeyed to more than 70 countries together, but so many sentimental moments of our relationship together have happened while traveling! We met in Hong Kong, first said “I love you” in Vietnam, got married in Berlin, and moved to London together.   Exploring New Orleans with the hubs Now that we live in New York City, we continue to make memories on our travels throughout our newly adopted country of the United States. With the country being so large and diverse, there’s no shortage of destinations for us to explore: In the three years we’ve lived here, we’ve explored the Southwest, have taken weekend getaways to the Deep South, gallivanted all up and down the eastern seaboard, and even lived our best lives in Hawaii!     Getting ready to zipline over Hawaii’s Umauma Falls Given that I know a thing or two about having epic travel experiences with a significant other, in my latest post for Alamo’s Scenic Route blog I share my tips for how to make your vacation memorable the next time you travel with bae!  I also share a number […]

48 hours in Charlotte, North Carolina: How to spend two days in the Queen City

Wednesday January 9th, 2019 04:43:31 PM Oneika

Wondering how to spend two days in Charlotte?  Never fear, here are my suggestions for things to do in the Queen City. Charlotte, North Carolina is one of those places I’ve technically been to many times, but haven’t really visited. I’ll explain what I mean.  As a frequent traveller based in the U.S., I’m intimately acquainted with the city’s international airport, flying in and out of it at least a dozen times in 2018 alone. But, do you think I could even list TWO things to do in Charlotte?  Not a chance! Because, despite laying over in Charlotte on a monthly basis, I’d never actually left the airport– except for that one time I spent a sleepless night in a nearby hotel because I missed my connecting flight home through no fault of my own *shakes fist in dismay*. Of course, that all changed last month when I spent the weekend in Charlotte– I discovered that it’s way more than a transit hub.   Why you should go to Charlotte, North Carolina One thing I’ve vowed to do in recent years is visit more of the USA. As a full-time travel content creator, the pressure is often on to journey […]

For the culture: Exploring African-American history in Savannah, Georgia | Traveling While Black

Thursday December 27th, 2018 07:36:15 PM Oneika

Savannah, Georgia is rich in African-American history and is SO worth exploring. Visit the following spots to learn more about black history in Savannah! Do a quick Google search of the term “Things to do in Savannah, Georgia” and you’ll be bombarded with a cornucopia of articles that might leave you a little overwhelmed. Pages upon pages of blog posts, websites, and ad copy describe Savannah’s offerings in meticulous detail (I should know– I wrote an article with a 48-hour Savannah itinerary myself *grins sheepishly*). Amongst other things, they’ll tell you that MUST do a river cruise along the Savannah River in a paddleboat, that you ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO take a stroll through the historic district so you can marvel at the city’s abundant ornate architecture , and that you CAN’T MISS digging into its world renowned food scene (real talk, I don’t even have a sweet tooth but Leopold’s Ice Cream parlour can get ALL my coins). But while you totally should do those quintessential Savannah things, one aspect of the city that doesn’t get nearly as much mainstream coverage is its African-American history.  Black history in Savannah can be found everywhere! And with over 250 years of African-American heritage, […]

I’m a 2019 Chief Travel Guide for Alamo Rent A Car!

Saturday December 8th, 2018 12:47:20 AM Oneika

  Where has the time gone? It seems like just yesterday that I announced that I was a 2018 Chief Travel Guide for Alamo Rent A Car, and yet, it’s been over a year!  Well, today I’m coming to you with an update– I’m continuing my partnership in 2019! As I stated in that first announcement post, travel represents freedom for me: The ability to discover new cultures, foods, sights and sounds.  And travelling by rental car, in particular, gives me the autonomy to explore at my own schedule, rhythm and pace. Just like last year, I’ll continue to produce content on the Scenic Route, which is Alamo’s travel blog.  I’ll also continue to link to that content here and on my social networks (primarily Facebook and Instagram). With that said, you can expect the content to take shape around three central themes: Sentimental travel, discovery travel and connection travel.  As someone whose exploration is often guided by feelings, the pursuit of knowledge, and the desire to meet and engage with loved ones and strangers, I can’t wait to delve into these topics! So get ready for another go-round with Alamo, and thank you, as always for riding with me […]

Things to do on your girls’ weekend in Greater Williamsburg, Virginia

Friday November 30th, 2018 11:43:35 AM Oneika

Shopping and spas and sunset cruises, oh my! I recently spent a weekend in Greater Williamsburg, Virginia with a girlfriend and enjoyed experiencing a different side of one of America’s most historic areas comprised of Williamsburg, Yorktown and Jamestowne.  Here’s why I think a weekend in Williamsburg is great for a girls’ trip, as well as things to do on your girls’ getaway! My recent weekend in Greater Williamsburg, Virginia is a prime example of why I love living in the U.S.:  it’s wonderful being able to take advantage of the ample opportunities to explore the country I now call home. Because here’s the thing: despite being born and raised in nearby Canada, my travels to the U.S. were pretty limited growing up.  While road trips across the border with my parents were fairly frequent, they were typically to the same three to four places: Buffalo to go shopping at the outlet stores (especially when the Canadian dollar was stronger), and New York City, Miami, or Washington, DC to visit family. Now that I live in The Big Apple, I’ve been playing catch up, taking advantage of my strategic location to explore the U.S. one city at a time.  Living […]

How to safeguard your home for the holidays with Lowe’s

Thursday November 22nd, 2018 12:29:56 AM Oneika

I’ve partnered with Lowe’s to show you how to keep your home safe during the holidays! Oh, travel bloggers… don’t you love us? Through words, pictures, and video, we give essential tips and tricks about travel– the act of transporting yourself to a different location, be it near or far. Among other things, we advise you where to go, how to get there quickly and safely, and how to live your best life once you arrive at your destination. And, of course, as travel professionals, we make sure that we leave no stone unturned when it comes to detail– we tend to go IN. We cover allllll aspects of the trip via coverage on our blogs and social media; from how to plan your itinerary to how to manage your budget (so you can have enough money to travel again at a later date, obvi)! However, you know the one thing we never seem to talk about? What happens to our homes while we’re away! Personally, I think this is a major oversight, because what goes on with your dwelling while you’re gone is equally as important as the epic experiences you’re having on your sojourn. For as much as […]

Gone Gorilla Trekking: Exploring Uganda’s wildlife with G Adventures

Friday October 12th, 2018 01:11:28 PM Oneika

I went gorilla trekking in Uganda with G Adventures and it was the experience of a lifetime! Read on for tips and info about gorilla trekking  tours in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park. Upon hearing my footsteps, the tall, dark, and handsome male looked over his shoulder slowly, sized me up with disinterest, then went back to eating his lunch. I felt my heart lurch in disappointment: despite having journeyed from far to see him, he was blatantly ignoring me.  Still, I panted in excitement– I had been looking forward to our date all week. I stole a look at his profile as he quietly sat and ate his food. He was stunning, stately, and gave off an air of danger– exactly the type of guy I was prone to fall for time and time again. I shivered as I checked out his muscular back: I couldn’t wait to tell my family and friends about our encounter.  I took a one last step forward as I took a deep breath, reached for my camera, and hoped he– the mountain gorilla I hiked three hours through the rainforest to see, that is– would notice me… Going gorilla trekking in Uganda […]

A weekend of Southern hospitality: How to spend two days in Savannah, Georgia

Tuesday August 21st, 2018 08:00:40 AM Oneika

Craving some Southern hospitality? A weekend in Savannah might just do the trick. Read on for tips on things to do in Savannah, as well as my suggestions for how to spend two days in Georgia’s prettiest city.  If you’re looking to add a new destination to your travel list, look no further than Savannah. Why should you visit Savannah, you ask?  Well, after spending a weekend in Savannah, I must say that Georgia’s oldest city is most definitely a “peach”– it’s quaint, super gorgeous, and oh-so-Southern. And speaking of gorgeous, the city looks like something out of a romance novel– its charming Historic District, beautiful gardens and tree-lined boulevards are nothing short of swoon-worthy! Two days in Savannah: Why Savannah is the perfect weekend getaway Do you only have 48 hours in Savannah? While there are many reasons to visit Savannah in general, there are a few that make it particularly great for a weekend trip. For one, the city’s small size makes it very to explore within two days.  The majority of Savannah’s sights are concentrated in its center, which is easily navigable. Secondly, it’s extremely historic.  Don’t be fooled by the Savannah’s beauteous exteriors– it’s filled with […]

Level up: Learning German with Rosetta Stone!

Thursday August 16th, 2018 11:27:58 PM Oneika

Thinking about learning a foreign language? Here’s my experience using Rosetta Stone’s app to improve my German! Confession:  I’ve been with a German man for nearly 9 years and my Deutsch is “nicht sehr gut”. Translation: my German sucks. I tell myself that it’s not really my fault: Liebling and I met in Hong Kong, shacked up together in London, then got married and moved to New York City.   Besides, with the exception of a really cute accent that nobody can guess is German (people often peg him as French, Dutch, or even British), his English is impeccable, so there’s no real need to use German at all.   And as someone who is fluent in three languages (English, French, Spanish), can order food in three others (Italian, Portuguese, Cantonese), and can curse in at least five more (Mandarin, Greek, Polish, Tagalog, Esperanto) I’ve smugly convinced myself that I’m pretty multilingual already.   But I feel my lack of German language skills as soon as I touch down in my hubby’s hometown of Berlin to see his people.  For example, while communicating with my mother-in-law is possible, it’s very slow and encompasses a lot of hand gestures; family functions […]

Travel based on your DNA: My experience with 23andMe’s DNA genetic testing kit & finding my roots in Senegal, West Africa

Thursday August 9th, 2018 05:09:00 PM Oneika

I recently did a DNA test with 23andMe and then travelled to Senegal, West Africa based on the results.  If you’re thinking of doing a DNA test, this is my experience. “Your reports are ready”. My heart skipped at the sight of the four bolded words in the subject line of my email inbox. I hurriedly moved my fingers across the trackpad of my laptop, then double-clicked the message to open it. What stared me in the face was an icon of an open envelope. A sheet of paper emblazoned with the 23andMe logo stuck out of its top flap. “ONEIKA,” the letter read, “welcome to you.” I smiled at the screen. My results were in, and, as the message continued, a world of DNA discovery– my DNA discovery– awaited me. I took a deep breath, clicked the link urging me to view my data, and braced myself for what was next… Who am I? Navigating identity and ancestry through DNA analysis As a traveller, educator, and journalist, I’ve always been naturally curious about history, culture, and the way people live in their diverse corners of the world. But lately, exploring my own unique story and identity had been at […]
