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.
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!
