Going Local – #RTWchat on Twitter

This week’s RTW chat was excellent as we had Sherry Ott of Ott’s World and Lisa Lubin of LL World Tour join us on video to chat about “Going Local.” They are both currently going local in Berlin courtesy of Go With Oh, a great company to check out if you hope to get a local flavor when traveling in Europe.
