Pink Sky Featured Traveler - June

This month’s featured traveler is Renée Hicks! We’ve never met in person, but she and I have been Facebook friends for quite some time now!! Renée is a mother of boy/girl twins, softball coach, former collegiate softball player and is a recent reluctant-turned-avid reader. While she has a full time career in marketing, she is also the founder of Book Girl Magic, a virtual book club with a very important twist: reading books that celebrate Black women authors. The idea was born out of a desire to introduce all readers to authors who might otherwise not be celebrated like their peers, especially in an industry largely dominated by males. Now, the group has morphed, inspiring women across the world to read outside of their own ethnic groups. In a world in which our differences can seemingly tear us apart, Renée uses books to bring us together and inspire change. I was able to catch up with Renée to learn more about her travels.



To date, what's been your favorite travel destination?

Scarborough, Tobago is probably my favorite travel destinations to date. It blew my mind.



What about this destination makes it your favorite?

Visiting Pigeon Point Beach, traveling the crystal clear waters on a glass bottom boat, snorkeling the Buccoo Reef with the coral and fish, hanging out in the Nylon Pool (a shallow pool in the middle of the ocean) and using the coral sand to exfoliate our skin. That day brought about some of the best memories



What do you love most about travel?

I love learning about new places, immersing myself in the culture, the music and trying new foods.



What is your favorite thing about traveling?

Hands down, exploring the beaches. The beaches all offer something unique and it brings me so much joy and peace. Something about traveling in general brings about so much joy.

It's truly my happy place!



Name something positive that you took away from your last travel adventure.

This last trip I was on, I planned by myself from beginning to end (for the first time). I did a lot of research to find the best tour guides and excursions and it ended up being the best trip of my life. I didn't know I was capable of being such a good planner.



Tell me about your favorite vacation picture and why it's your favorite.

This picture in particular is my favorite because I visited Port of Spain, Trinidad (and Maracas Bay Beach) for the first time ever on my 40* birthday. My dad was born in Trinidad so to be there ON my 40" birthday meant so much to me. I may have even shed a tear or two. lol




Which destination is currently at the top of your travel bucket list?

I have a few, Bora Bora, Thailand, Bali and Greece.



What intrigues you about this destination?

The photographer in me loves beautiful, scenic places. Anywhere I can go and capture a picture-perfect moment is where I want to be. I also am interested in the culture and tasting the food in these places as well.


Thank you so much, Renée for being our featured traveler for June!! Here are a few pictures from Renée‘s!!!
