This week, Travel Talk on Twitter hauls in a large assortment of wing men and women to talk all and sundry on the subject of travel chums…as well as sharing campfire tales regarding a few less than desirable sidekicks. So why not buddy up with the #TTOT universe, and let us bring you the latest repartee from the world’s greatest travel chat!
The questions this week were:
Q1. Who is your favourite travel buddy who you would travel the world with?
Q2. If you could choose ANYONE as a travel buddy who would it be and why?
Q3. What’s the greatest benefit a travel buddy has brought to your travels?
Q4. What are your Top 5 “must have” attributes in a travel buddy?
Q5. Describe a time when you wished you’d had a travel buddy?
The ‘Why So Siri-ous’ Shout Out for phoning it in.
@SwannySA: [Favourite travel buddy] My iPhone. Siri makes for entertaining conversation when solo.
The ‘Bros Before Sanyos’ Shout Out for seeing the Sony side of life.
@wetfootprints: My camera never answers back, it never steals my beer & we both have the same taste in memories we see.
The ‘Rush Hour’ Shout Out for acting up.
@tnttravelshow: My dream travel companion would be Jack Bauer – he seems to always be able to get a flight at a moment’s notice.
The ‘Let There Be Bud Light’ Shout Out for Absolut miracles.
@BeInspired2Go: [Greatest benefit of a travel buddy] To be my guardian angel when one has had too many drinkies…
The ‘Not From Round These Ramparts Are You’ Shout Out because it’s the fort that counts.
@Travelerrohan: I do a lot of photography of old forts. My travel partner usually ensures I don’t tumble off the ramparts while clicking photos.
The ‘Edge of Gory’ Shout Out before things turn nasty.
The ‘Tear Open The Presents’ Shout Out for getting a real roasting.
@JennySerwylo: Somehow #ttot has turned into Xmas dinner where grandma says “So are you seeing anyone?” and I say “No.” then cry into mashed potatoes.
The ‘Jitterbug’ Shout Out for spotting a familiar trend.
@RTWExpert: Haha, wriggling around like a ladybird – we’ve all been there!
The ‘Gouda Sight, Gouda Mind’ Shout Out for having edam good time.
The ‘Snog, Maori, Avoid’ Shout Out for going it alone.
@Em30b430: I went to the theatre by myself in Wellington on Valentine’s Day and felt very brave!
