#CultureTravChat on Thursday, 11/20!

CultureTravChatHope everyone is having a great week so far!

I really enjoyed chatting with many of you during last week’s first ever #CultureTravChat. I can’t wait to hear your perspectives in the next chat. Why did I start this chat? To hear how you and fellow travelers (expert travelers, nomads, expats, and those who enjoy traveling for fun and with family/partners and friends) personally experience everything it has to offer. How you embrace cultural differences, learn from other cultures, develop new friendships while on the road, and so much more.
