#TTOT: Meeting strangers on the road

2014-05-06 16:05
Cape Town - “Don’t talk to strangers” is one of the first rules that parents would lay out in childhood. Travelling seems to have thrown this rule out the window, as one knows, strangers sometimes turn into best friends on travels.

Today’s TTOT had travels sharing some of the best strangers they’ve met, and exchanged thoughts and tips on hitchhiking abroad. Here are the questions and some of our favourite answers from today’s talk:

Q1 What's your best 'meeting a stranger' when travelling story? Q2 Has a stranger ever really inspired you and why? Q3 What's the kindest thing a stranger on the road has done for you? Q4 How do you feel about hitchhikers? Have you ever and/or would you pick one up? Q5 Share the best pictures of you and the strangers you've met travelling!

If you're a keen traveller who likes to share tales, tips and trifles with other wanderers, you should head on over to twitter every Tuesday for Travel Talk on Twitter, also known as #TTOT.

Taking place every week at 11:30 (SA time), the chat is run by a few of the world's top travel bloggers, such as Travel Dudes, Roni Weiss and Runaway Juno, and aimed at getting travellers from all over the world to sharing their experiences. How it works: A new topic is introduced every week, so to stay in the loop by keeping close tabs on the TTOT Facebook group.

The discussion takes the form of five different questions related to the topic and will be numbered Q1 - Q5, with a couple of minutes for responses to each. In order to respond to a specific question you will start your answer with A1, 2, 3, 4 or 5, of course including #TTOT so you're included in the stream.

Check out the Travel Talk on Twitter Facebook page for updates about upcoming chats.
