Food and Travel – #RTWChat on Twitter

A great way to really experience the culture of a foreign country is through its food. Not only the tastes and smells, but the method, the history, the preparation – all offer an amazing insight into the traditions of that place.

Yesterday on #RTWChat, we talked about food while traveling. We were also fortunate enough to have Kelsey Timmerman, author of the book Where Am I Eating?, join us for a video interview during #RTWChat. He had some amazing stories to tell about where our food actually comes from, and it is a highly entertaining and informative interview, so check it out!

Volunteering on Your RTW Trip – #RTWChat on Twitter

We covered a hot topic yesterday in #RTWChat – Volunteering on your RTW Trip. We constantly get questions about volunteering while traveling:

  • Should you pay? How much?
  • What does the money go to? Why does it cost so much?
  • Do you have to set it up before leaving, or is it possible to just turn up and find a place that needs help?
  • What should you look for in a good volunteering organization?

All are topics we covered in yesterday’s chat, so check out the recap below to see what everyone had to say.

We were also fortunate enough to have Shannon from A Little Adrift join us on a video chat to share her expertise on the subject. She recently wrote a book entitled The Volunteer Traveler’s Handbook, where she covers all of the above topics and more. She also offered a wealth of resources to help hopeful volunteers out.

Here are three thoughts on beginning research on volunteer organizations. There are many, many out there but this is a good place to start according to Shannon:
