The Road Less Travelled (#TRLT) is a lively and inspiring Twitter chat that commenced on Tuesday 5 November 2013.  The first session exceeded our expectations and we were trending during the chat.  The following chats also trended and attracted even more activity.

#TRLT regularly ranks as one of the top 5 busiest Twitter travel chats in the world, and we have the highest response rate per question of any Twitter travel chat.

#TRLT discusses destinations overlooked on Twitter travel chats, such as Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia and Central America.  These are places that deserve to be considered as holiday options by more travellers and #TRLT is one way to generate discussion and interest in these destinations.

Founded by Shane, Ariana and Savannah, we all possess personal experience in places infrequently travelled by others, with Afghanistan being a particular favourite for each of us.

If you are a novice or seasoned traveller on such rarely trodden paths, or even if you are seeking to place your first foot on #TRLT then join us on the following times each Tuesday:

US PT: 1000 NYC time: 1300 (1 pm)

UK TIME  1800 (6 pm)

West Europe: 1900 (7 pm)

United Arab Emirates: 2100 (9pm)

What is a Twitter Chat? A brief explanation on how our twitter chat works. Five questions are asked on a chosen theme at approximately 10-12 minute intervals, and these are prefaced with Q1, Q2 and so on.  You answer each question with the relevant answer (A1, A2 etc.) and interact with others.  It is important to include #TRLT hashtag so your tweets can be followed by the hosts and other participants.#TRLT is a busy chat, and the best way to follow is to open a separate windows for #TRLT and one for Interactions so you can follow the chat and who is chatting directly with you. I personally find TweetDeck offered by Twitter a very effective method of achieving this as it allows multiple windows to be displayed on the one screen.
