Coming Up: For the Love of Travel Twitter Chat

Join @NatGeoTravel on Twitter to discuss how our interests influence our travel experiences.

This month, we want to explore the whys of travel. Do you travel for the love of parks, music, outdoor activities, cities, food, or cultural immersion? How will you choose your next trip? Our interests and curiosities can lead to moments of true travel inspiration and lifelong memories, and it all starts with that first flare of attraction to a city, a country, or a culture.

We’ll be delving deeper into this topic on Friday, September 30. Maryellen Kennedy Duckett, a regular contributor to National Geographic Travel and author of our popular Best Seasonal Trips series, will host the discussion. We hope you join us to share the reasons why you travel and what influences your trip decisions. You can participate in the conversation at 4 p.m. ET by using #NatGeoTravelChat.

During the live chat, @NatGeoTravel will pose six questions over the course of an hour. Maryellen and members of the National Geographic family will give their answers and discuss how different interests and passions have influenced their travel destinations and activities.

Be sure to share your own thoughts and travel stories. We will be retweeting our favorite responses.

Here’s what you need to know:

When: 4-5 p.m. ET on Friday, September 30, 2016
