I’m Vikkie. I’m from Hampton, Virginia, and now call Brooklyn, New York, home.

I started Vikkie Ventures back in 2017 to demystify what it means to travel. The first – and usually only – question people ask me is, how?” How do I travel extensively with bills, student loans, a dog, and a full-time, demanding job?

To answer that question: I got into finding flight deals and curating trips and experiences for all types of travelers, from the experienced to the newbie.

I still get many of those questions, but since we last spoke, much has changed. Travel has undoubtedly changed; I’ve changed, and so has my relationship with traveling.

This is a good thing!

Still living the dream — on my terms, this time.

What travel represented in 2017, when I first started writing about the topic, is different from what it is now. For starters, travel is no longer an identity. It enhances my life experiences, but I am so much more than where I visit or how I got there. That, to me, is what growth demonstrates.

Vikkie Ventures has also gotten a name change — Travel With Vikkie — to align with who I am now.

Some things haven’t changed, however. I’m still about making travel feel accessible and inclusive. I’m still about travel deals and getting folks where they want to go at the best price. And I’m still about helping folks travel better. Happy travels, kinfolk.
