Introducing Globalnista's AccessAble tours. 

It is important that the world becomes more accessible to everyone.  It is also important that the we understand that those in wheelchairs with "mobility differences" are AccessAble and many have the ability to travel independently, but like others, they "choose" not to do so. They would prefer to have a travel buddy.  We are filling that gap between them and the world, while still providing the high energy Globalnista experiences.  These will not be your grandmother's tours!

A Birthday to Remember!

The celebration of birthdays is about continual acknowledgement of the birth of a new life. I am thankful for my life and love celebrating my birthday each year with a special  birthday tour filled with surprises for those that travel with me.  Normally, the tour sells out within days with excited repeat travelers.  The celebrations have taken place in Egypt, Dubai, Portugal, and Senegal.  In 2021, the normal group festivities  will be in November, shortly after my actual birthday.   This year, I am celebrating  with the the birth of Globalnista AccessAble in Paris with six AccessAble travelers.  "We were the first to create international group tours that connected African-American women. I have always wanted to to the same for Black women with mobility differences. I am beyond excited that this dream if finally becoming a reality. " -Fleace Weaver

The country that taught the world what haute cuisine was all about may not have invented wine or cheese, but they certainly set the bar – both culinary and culturally – for the rest of us to experience to the fullest
