In honor of Father’s Day, here are some black fathers who are inspiring us all to the see the world and they’re doing it with their spouses and children by their sides.  

1. James and his wife Monet run the travel blog “The Traveling Child.” Together, with their two daughters, Kennedy and Jordyn, the family is helping other families travel the world while (debunking) myths about traveling with children.

They have traveled to Asia, the Caribbean, Europe, South America, and more.

3. The woman who runs “The Mom Trotter” is Karen Akpan, who is also the mother of an adorable boy named Aiden.  Together, they travel the world with her husband and Aiden’s father @globalcreation.

Here’s a picture that will make you smile. The family is riding camels in the Sahara Desert in Morocco with the hashtag #blackdads rock.

5. Carlos Siegler Carter and his partner @simply_richie_s are just getting started with their adorable son Timothy. The young and fly New Yorker just recently took a family vacation trip to Disney World. The couple has traveled to Mexico, France, and Thailand, so we’re sure Timmy’s passport stamps are on the way.
