Hiking and Trekking – #RTWChat on Twitter

This week’s #RTWChat on Twitter focused on hiking and trekking, a theme we’ve been covering in our feature articles on BootsnAll all week.

We were very excited to have Dave and Deb from The Planet D as guests on the video portion of our chat. Check it out below, as it’s chock full of great information, and it’s highly entertaining (I challenge you not to laugh your ass off).

It’s also a good idea to check out our Hiking Page, which has 17 articles about hiking and trekking around the world.

If you missed it or want to re-live it, the #RTWChat recap is below. Some amazing pictures this week, so if you want some good mountain porn, keep scrolling.

RTW Itinerary Ideas – #RTWChat on Twitter

This week on BootsnAll, we’ve been publishing stories aimed to help people choose an itinerary for their trips. On Monday, we broke down A Classic RTW Trip itinerary, complete with budgets and ideas for each region. Tuesday, we outlined some of the Best Budget Beach Destinations Around the World for those who want to plan a trip around sun and sand. Today we talked about Shoulder Seasons Around the World and why they’re great for long-term travel. Stay tuned tomorrow as we break down the route Jules Verne takes in the classic book Around the World in 80 Days.

Naturally, we wanted to incorporate this theme into our #RTWChat yesterday afternoon on Twitter, so we discussed RTW Itinerary Ideas with our community on Twitter.

To see what you missed and gain a lot of awesome RTW itinerary ideas, check out the recap below.

Location Independence – #RTWChat on Twitter

After someone travels long-term for the first time, addiction sets in. Many of us think, “I want to do this all the time!” Then reality sets in, and we realize that in order to do that, we need to have some money. With technology becoming more and more widespread around the world, this is becoming possible by obtaining a location independent job that allows people to work anywhere in the world as long as there is an internet connection.

We invited Nora Dunn, creator of the site The Professional Hobo, to join us on the video chat yesterday as we talked about location independence. Nora has been a location independent professional since 2007, and she shared tons of knowledge and expertise about the realities of working from the road. Check out the video below, as it has some incredible tips and insight, followed by the recap of the chat on Twitter.

Check out the video, then read the recap if you missed the chat.

Must-See Destinations and Experiences – #RTWChat on Twitter

Everyone has a list of some sort – whether it’s written down in an old ratty notebook, saved on a spreadsheet on your computer, or mental, all travel lovers have a must-see list (what some would call a bucket list).

Yesterday on #RTWChat, we talked about our must-see lists and shared what it is that appeals to us when it comes to travel. Check out the recap below for an entertainment and inspiration, but we want to offer you a fair warning – it will make you want to head the airport right now and head to one of these amazing destinations.

For those of you who want to actually see these must-see’s on your list, sign up for Plan Your RTW Trip in 30 Days, a free email lesson plan that walks you through all the steps of planning a RTW trip. We recently launched a family edition of RTW 30 as well, so if you’re a traveling family, sign up today and start receiving emails tomorrow!
