Connect with your ancestral roots. Turn up at African music festival, Afrochella. Commune with like-minded black travelers and indulge in Ghanian cuisine on this You Me Travel Co Year Of Return Trip.
This year we’ll be traveling to Ghana for The Year Of Return festivities. It’s been 400 years since our ancestors were stolen from the shores of West Africa and brought to The Americas against our will. Now, we’re traveling back to our ancestral home to discover our ancestral roots and turn up in the motherland (because we can be sophisticated and ratchet at the same damn time).
Join us from December 27, 2019 - January 4, 2020 for the ultimate NYE celebration. This trip is designed for Black Millenials (ages 23-24) and our experiences will be designed acdordingly.
