I am incredibly privileged to know some amazing people across the globe. When I think about the people I have met and the stories we have swapped, I cannot help but smile. Thank you to #TRLT and #CultureTrav for introducing me to these amazing people. Read on to see all the amazing tweet meets I’ve hosted in Amsterdam, Utrecht, Detroit, Chicago, and more!
On Tuesday, January 12, three of the four #TRLT team members – founder Shane Dallas (@TheTravelCamel), founder Savannah Grace (@Sihpromatum), and host Jessica Lipowski (@JLipowski) – were in the same location: Utrecht, Netherlands. Shane flew in from Kenya for the Vakantiebeurs as a keynote speaker. Savannah and Jessica drove in from Alkmaar and Amsterdam respectively, both to network at the trade show and hear Shane speak. We felt this special occasion called for a celebration: a #TRLT meet-up. The Grand Hotel Karel V graciously hosted our travel event, and the group of 15 was easily accommodated in the Koning Willem I room. Thank you so much to everyone who joined – both online and off-line. Read about the full event here and see the photos.
While many may already know Shane as the co-founder of #TRLT, captivating public speaker, world traveler or photographer, I wanted to take the time to share a bit more of Shane’s story. Who exactly is The Travel Camel? Without further ado, please read on to learn more about him.
