What is CultureTrav?

CultureTrav Hosts
CultureTrav, launched in November 2014, is a weekly Twitter chat where travelers can share perspectives and listen to stories from other fellow travelers. The founder, Nicolette of Culture With Travel, said she started the chat because she always enjoyed hearing how people personally experience travel, especially in regards to topics like cultural similarities and differences, language gaps, trying new things (i.e. alternate cuisines), developing friendships on the road, and much more. Get to know her in this interview. I became an official co-host in February 2015. Clare Hancock from Immersion Travel Magazine joined in March 2017.

Whether you’re a seasoned traveler, a nomad, an expat, enjoy traveling alone or with family/friends, or even just leisurely, part-time travel, you’ll surely have great tips to share with others. See where other CultureTrav chatters are based around the world!
