The Travel Talk on Twitter‘ers have got a very particular set of skills. Skills they have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make them an absolute dream for people like us… and this week it was time to divulge their tried and tested travel tips to the barracks. The #TTOT veterans got to strut their stuff in front of the whippersnappers, and a whole host of invaluable advice was passed between the ranks. Wading into the proceedings with our size 10 boots, here are the Shout Outs for the most deserving globe-troopers…
The questions this week were:
Q1. Everybody has a secret travel tip – It’s time to spill it!
Q2. What is the best travel tip somebody ever shared with you?
Q3. What is the best travel tip that you give to others that you can never follow?
Q4. What tip sounded weird at first, but then became very useful throughout your travels?
Q5. What travel tip do you wish someone had told you before your trip?
