RTW Chat is held every Wednesday at 12:30 pm Pacific Standard Time for 1 hour. Join us as we discuss, debate and support topics related to Around the World Travel (or Long-term travel)

Solo Travel

The more I read and hear about people traveling solo around the world, the more I want to do it myself (just don’t tell my wife that).

Yesterday’s #RTWChat was no different, as we heard from many solo travelers and many aspiring solo travelers about the highs, lows, and ultimately, the huge benefits one gains from traveling the world by themselves.

Check out the recap below for lots of great tips and advice for long-term solo travel.

Wildlife and Travel

When travelers come to us for help planning their RTW route, one suggestion we always make is to choose the pillars of your trip – the must-see destinations and experiences that you’ve been dreaming about.

Something that many travelers add to their pillars list has to do with wildlife – gorilla trekking, safaris, Amazon adventures, the Galapagos – just to name a few.

During yesterday’s #RTWChat, we discussed wildlife and long-term travel. Check out the recap below to see what other travelers had to say.

The People You Meet

One of the best things about travel is all the people you meet along the way – from locals to other travelers.

During yesterday’s #RTWChat, we told stories about all the amazing people we’ve met on the road, including which countries have the friendliest (and unfriendliest) people, what pet peeves we have when it comes to other travelers, and stories of being invited to local celebrations.

Check out the recap below to read more!
