#TTOT Weekly Awards! Topic: Time Zones

| November 22, 2011

It’s ‘Travel Talk on Twitter’ time… or ‘TTOT’ to you and me. Every Tuesday travellers get together to discuss all things travel using the #TTOT Hashtag on Twitter. Check out the My Destination awards for this week’s topic: ‘Time Zones!’

Here are the questions that were asked this week:

Q1: What are your secrets for fighting jetlag?

Q2: When and where were your worst time zone and jet lag experiences?

Q3: Have you ever missed something because you didn’t change your clock to the correct time zone?

Q4: Should we scrap daylight saving time?

Q5: What’s your most hilarious time zone confusion situation?


Travelling across Time Zones


The ‘Life’s too SHORT’ Tweet Award for most hilarious:

@TomJamesBrennan: Wandering into ‘It’s a Small World’ at Disney whilst jetlagged – thought I’d stumbled into Warwick Davis’s family get together.


The ‘TOTT’ Tweet Award for Tweeting on the Toilet:

@onlyapartmentsD: Quick bathroom break before #TTOT starts


The ‘Alan Partridge’ Tweet Award for worst Dad joke:

@meljbel: Do it Mr T style…knock yourself out ‘I aint getting on no plane fool’


The ‘Michael Winner’ Tweet Award to ‘Calm down dear…’:

@whereisyvetter: I won’t lie, when I’m travelling in a different time zone I’m not caring much about #TTOT World’s much more interesting.


The ‘’Aint that the Truth’ Tweet Award:

@jesswhitworth: Red eye flights in the US – ALWAYS a killer. Chirpy, overly loud air hostesses not appreciated.


The ‘Team Edward’ Tweet Award for absolute blasphemy:

@25travels: Watching twilight then I’ll get to sleep coz of boredom.


The ‘I am glad that didn’t happen to me!’ Tweet Award:

@TravelingEditor: 13 hours jetlag, London to Auckland – then forced to go on a road trip by parents the day after!


The ‘Agony Aunt’ Tweet Award for best advice:

@whereRyou: My mom always says “The time where you land is the time. Don’t even mention the old time and you’ll be fine” Works for me!

The best travel experience I ever had was in Varanasi in India when I took a boat ride up the Ganges to witness the sacred Hindu public cremations that have taken place there constantly for as long as anyone can remember. Hindu’s journey to Varanasi from all over the country to cremate their loved ones and send them off to the next stage of their spiritual life. As I sat on the boat, watching families dip their deceased into the Ganges and then construct a funeral pyre from only 20ft away, I don’t think I have ever been so moved emotionally by anything I have seen on my travels. Their belief that death is not the final stage of a person’s life means the ceremonies are not considered a grievous occasion and I found this both perplexing and beautiful at the same time. Religion is intertwined in the daily routine of everyone who lives in Varanasi and I felt honoured to be allowed to observe from my small boat, such a milestone in all these people’s lives. Top of my Bucket List, if money was no object, would be to go to Borneo and work in an Orphan Orang-utan Nursery…it would be the ultimate dream to nurse those little ginger fur babies back to health!
