This is the first post from Lauren, who will be writing #TNI recaps for the Tripping Blog every Friday! So give Lauren a warm Tripping welcome, and be sure to follow her on Twitter at @WanderLoz -Grahame
Hey Trippers! Looking for more ways to connect with travelers/travel lovers? How are your Thursdays looking? You can tune in to a fun, informative, and often hilarious discussion group on Twitter called Travelers’ Night In hosted by the lovely ladies at ZipSetGo. It’s free. It’s easy. It’s ninety minutes of talking about your favorite topics- what could be better?!
Whether you’re tweet-happy or new to the Twitter scene, this is a great way to share your travel stories, wisdom, and concerns, gain followers, and potentially connect with fellow trippers out there. (If you’re not on Twitter, you can still check out the tweetgrid and “listen in” on the discussion, but if you want to participate and connect, you should start a Twitter account!)
The discussions consist of ten questions and the topics are all over the map (no pun intended). They can be as broad as your “Travel Bucket List” or 90 minutes all about “Green Travel” or the “Best of Your Hometown” (to name a few of the previous topics). Learn about where people have been, the best ways to budget, key phrases to know in certain countries, while also learning about your fellow #travel tweeps- maybe your paths will cross someday…
So tune in this Thursday at 3:30pm EST and talk travel with your fellow world enthusiasts. Your ticket is your hashtag (#TNI). Search #TNI or use the #TNI tweetgrid to follow the discussion and make sure you hashtag your tweets to be a part of the Tweetup. Check back to the Tripping Blog every Friday to see if your tweets made the recap! Happy travels and happy tweeting!
