How #travchat works


Each week there will be different topics.

Some weeks there may also be other Guest Hosts or Topic Experts for specific chats.

Each week we will pose six questions which we’ll post here the day before the chat and will be tweeted at intervals during the chat.

To join the conversation simply use the Hashtag #travchat and share your feedback, observations, photos and comments. These will then appear in the Chat stream.

Each of our six questions will be tweeted out with the prefix: Q1, Q2… Q6 etc. To answer simply begin your tweet with A1, A2… A6 etc.

So, anyone who is up for a catch up with possibly the friendliest gang on twitter come and say ‘Hi’ and join the best conversation and share your good~and not so good travellers tales.

We chat for about an hour officially although we aim to hang around much of the day and chat longer.

We’d love to hear what you have to say, hear about your experiences and maybe see a few of your photos.

Come and join us and join in~we’d love to meet you!
