Travel Banter makes engaging conversations happen 

The Travel Banter Story

Four years ago, I was browsing my Twitter feed and noticed lots of conversations happening. Travelers were sharing stories in Twitter chats, live Q&A sessions at a set time and date around a hashtag.

I started joining chats, and became inspired by the travelers. And, that’s where the journey with launching my own Twitter chat began. On November 13, 2014, I launched my very first #CultureTravChat to start conversations around culture and travel. 

Travel Banter is the byproduct of 100s of travel conversations on Twitter. 

Sometimes the people we see the most, we don’t always know the best. Their photos appear on social media but do we really know the details behind the exciting adventures they’ve had? You want to get to know people. But, sometimes you don’t know what questions to ask…

Wouldn’t it be great to have more engaging questions to ask to create a better conversation? Travel Banter gives you a fun and easy way to bring you closer together, and share memorable moments.
