We’re going home, baby
Ghana is welcoming us back to the motherland for the Year of Return. You Me Travel Co will be traveling to beautiful Accra, Ghana for the festivities. Join us?
Connect with your ancestral roots. Celebrate at African music festival, Afrochella. Commune with like-minded black millennial travelers 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 3, 2020 for the ultimate NYE celebration.
Check out the itinerary below & book your spot for only $150.
