What’s your travel motivation?

2013-12-03 13:54
As the world is rapidly advancing, it is becoming easier for you to travel from where you are, to a different land. In fact, travel and tourism has become such a customary trend, that often we ask ourselves and others why we really want to make the journey. But do you really need a reason to travel?

In today's Travel Talk on Twitter we chatted about “out of the ordinary travel motivations”, discussing what or who inspired people to make the journeys that they travel to. We found that while travellers had specific reasons for why they went to wherever they went, those who were well travelled did not need much motivation to travel- a curious case of the travel bug was all that was needed. We've shared a few of our favourite answers that the Twitter travel community came up with and would love to hear your thoughts! 
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.

Q1: Which book or movie motivated you to travel to a particular destination? Q2: I had to travel to _ (place) for _ (reason) and I _ (finish the sentence)

Q3: What is the weirdest reason why you travelled?

Q5: What "out of the ordinary" event or place is still on your travel bucket list?
