Here’s yet another treat for your global viewing pleasure. Last week I introduced you to the Grannies on Safari, two 60-something best friends taking us around the world on their PBS travel show. Now, it’s like I’m taking you back in time. It’s like the Grannies on Safari thirty-something years ago – before retirement, before the husbands, the kids, the grandkids. And you know what happens before all that right? (I don’t. Just thought the question was fitting. ;-))

But back to TravelistaTV. Teri and Andrea have traveled to over 35 countries and have developed this culture, entertainment, and lifestyle television channel to allow us to tag along for the ride (flight). They visit awesome destinations, meet amazing people, and seek out adventurous experiences all in search of the good life. You can’t be mad at that! And besides all that – these girls are gawjus (that gorgeous times like a trillion)! They could be filming in Hyattsville, Maryland and I’d still watch. No shade at Hyattsville or anything – but yeah these girls are hot!

Be sure to visit their website and show your support for some more African-American jetsetters! Not sure of their end goal, but this is yet another show that should be on the Travel Channel. And another little bonus, Grind and Thrive creator Torrey McGraw recently interviewed TravelistaTV about the growth of their brand, how it all got started, their struggles, successes and more. You definitely want to see this! Awesome nuggets of inspiration not only for those who want to travel, but mainly for all of the entrepreneurs out there.

Check this clip of Travelista Teri in Antigua with special appearances by actor Anthony Mackie and Antiguan Soca star Tian. Try not to drool.

Meet the Grannies on Safari: Over Fifty, Fabulous, and Fly (Literally)!

I’m a firm believer in “Remember the Sabbath and keep it Holy…” some of you know it as Lazy Sunday? After church, I usually eat a huge breakfast then park it right on the couch for TV or a good book – whatever it takes to relax. This past Sunday, watching TV actually paid off. I stumbled upon an awesome gem that I’m now sharing with all of you: Grannies on Safari.

The premise is simple: two 60-something best friends (Granny Pat and Granny Regina) traveling the world and sharing their adventures with us. The significance is deep: positive images of two AARP-aged African-American jet-setters traveling to places such as Machu Picchu in Peru, the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa, and the Amber Palace in India. I saw the description of the show before I actually saw the Grannies, and I must admit I wasn’t expecting them to look like me. But really, they could be my Grannies! And the way they tell their stories – boy! I was hooked at the first “Mercy me.”

Why this isn’t on the Travel Channel is beyond me. But you can find it on your local PBS-station. Here in D.C. it’s on WHUT. If you can’t find it, contact your local PBS station and request it! Support these ladies, they deserve it. You can also visit their website GranniesOnSafari.Com, “Like” them on Facebook, Follow them on Twitter (you know they’re fabulous if they’re on Twitter!), listen to them on BlogTalkRadio, and look them up on YouTube. Here’s a very short clip of Granny Pat and Granny Regina in India. On their homepage is an amazing assortment of videos from the upcoming season, which is sponsored exclusively by AARP ($$! :)).

Have any of you seen or heard of Grannies on Safari before? What do you think?
