Each Tuesday the twitter verse comes together to talk travel – with topics ranging from the important and useful, all the way to the downright ghastly. This week's topic dealt with Wilderness Travel in all its glory - from what constitutes a wild place to harrowing experiences. Interestingly, we found Travel Talk participants from across the globe are on pretty much the same page when it comes to wilderness tales. We especially enjoyed what the Travel Talk on Twitter (#TTOT) community had to say about their harrowing wilderness experiences in Question 3... and, well, let's just say elephants and snakes are certainly the creatures that cause the most trauma. Check out these funny answers:A3 - Had to do an emergency stop in a jeep when a family of elephants ran out in front of us on a dirt track in a jungle. That count? #ttot— Ladies what...travel (@LadiesWhat) July 8, 2014A3. Walking along the Zambezi River and nearly stepping on a crocodile. Also nearly driving into an elephant whilst on a moped! #ttot— Sam Hopkins (@samhoppie) July 8, 2014A3: Definitely almost being trodden by an elephant in Kenya! #ttot— Holly Dixon (@holdix) July 8, 2014@News24Travel @CharlesMcCool encounters with a berg adder, a grumpy elephant, badger bully and an irritable lion. All on different trips.— Shaina Boswell (@Shaina_Jade) July 8, 2014A3. I've come across snakes in the wild a few times - even found one in the car once while driving... does that qualify as harrowing? #ttot— Meruschka (@MzansiGirl) July 8, 2014And sometimes orangutans, dogs and good old getting lost can be pretty scary too:A3: Being chased by an organgutan in the jungles of Bukkit Lawang, Indonesia #ttot— Justine Stewart (@fromawomanseye) July 8, 2014A3. Got bitten by a rabid dog. When I got around to getting the jab, the recptionist just passed it over to do it myself. #ttot— Daniel Fahey (@FaheyDaniel) July 8, 2014A3. #TTOT| a harrowing experience, i lost my way in such a isolated place for days & at last was rescued by gypsies, during a trekking trip— badyari.tanveer (@KASHMIR_LADAKH) July 8, 2014While the harrowing experiences may have made for the most entertaining stories, there were some pretty great answers for the other four questions too. Check them out:Q1. What defines wilderness travel? A1: Wilderness travel means getting lost without a map. It's the best way to explore! #ttot— Georgina (@GeorginaWhittle) July 8, 2014A1. Silence. Peace. Natural environment - not manmade. Beauty. Either alone or with family or friends but not crowds of others #ttot— Fiona Allan (@purplepatchmktg) July 8, 2014A1. Being completely at one with nature, with only the necessities to survive! #ttot— GrandAmericanAd (@GrandAmericanAd) July 8, 2014A1. Wildlife, far from civilisation - or, at least, a place where you can't hear cars! #ttot— Lizzie Davey (@WanderfulWorld1) July 8, 2014Q2. Which wilderness travel destinations are on your bucket list and why? A2 - Torres del Paine. Saw a photo of it about 20 years ago that looked like a painting. Been obsessed with visiting ever since! #ttot— Ladies what...travel (@LadiesWhat) July 8, 2014A2 - Ooo! and I also want to do the Sardine run in South Africa! #ttot http://t.co/3SmeAGK6Q1 and http://t.co/5RtdVa8r93— Travis Ball (@flashpackerhq) July 8, 2014A2: Antarctica ! Because its probably the only place in the world without cellphone reception! #ttot— French Touch Travel (@frenchtouchind) July 8, 2014A2 Wandering around the Alaska and the Yukon. Plane leaves in three weeks. Can't wait! :) #ttot— Yvette Cendes (@whereisyvette) July 8, 2014Q4. Which pieces of art, literature or music can inspire wilderness travel?A4. Mother-f'n Indiana Jones, y'all. #ttot— Roni Weiss (@roniweiss) July 8, 2014A4 of course, Into the Wild both book and film. Che Guevara's Motorcycle Diaries - when it mainly about travel - was spectacular. #TTOT— Gemma Fottles (@FottlesTravels) July 8, 2014A4. How about Huckleberry Finn? #ttot— aadhu ahid (@aadhuu) July 8, 2014A4: Just saw the Secret Life of Walter Mitty and now have a sudden urge to see #Greenland and #Iceland...*ES #ttot— Lonely Planet UK (@lonelyplanetUK) July 8, 2014Q5. Desert, mountain, ocean, jungle – what does your favourite wilderness travel destination look like & why? A5. Desert!

We love everything about Africa :) #ttot pic.twitter.com/yM5LkG1Fll— Acacia Africa (@AcaciaAfrica) July 8, 2014A5: Lakes surrounded by mountains.
