The JACultureTrav Extravaganza and Amsterdam Meet-Up Was a Huge Success

On Thursday, December 3, #CultureTrav and #JAChat teamed up to host a special #JACultureTrav Twitter extravaganza. The online portion of the event took place at 2:30pm EST (8:30pm CET), and people chimed in from all over the world to discuss the topic “Travel Inspiration.” In honor of this special occasion, we decided to hold in-person meet-ups on the same day: one in New York City, one in Chicago and one in Amsterdam. I led the Amsterdam meet-up, graciously hosted by The Hoxton Hotel. Thank you so much to everyone who joined – both online and off-line. It was a fantastic collaboration!

Read a review of her book and take a trip down memory lane as I recount my last trip to the “City of Love.”
