Travel from the comfort of my sofa with #TRLT

#TRLT is a Twitter travel chat that happens every Tuesday at 6pm GMT. It’s an hour a week where travellers from around the world get together to tweet about travel; share stories, photos and inspiration. I’m delighted to be featured as the #TRLT Tuesday Traveler this week, so wanted to share a bit more about it and…/trlt-tuesday-traveler-ali-hunteran excuse for some cute animals with my top ‘Little Five’ from this week’s chat.

Although I started 2016 on a tropical beach in Vietnam, I’m sadly not long term travelling this year. Sometimes I get the travel blues, and finding others who are as passionate about travel in my day to day life isn’t always easy. Part of my survival tips of coming home was to talk to other travellers who understood and the online community is perfect for that.

#TRLT is one of my favourite twitter chats. It stands for ‘The Road Less Travelled’ and you can find weekly questions, and more about how to join in on Sihpromatum‘s website. The photos shared by the community are beautiful, inspiring and I can feel a little like I’m travelling the world once a week from the comfort of my sofa!

To give you an example (and with an excuse for some cute animals), here is a little more on my favourite question from this week.

Q: We all love the “Big Five,” but what are your favourite “Little Five” on #TRLT? Share a pic!

Not easy to answer as I have so many potential winners on my ‘Little Five’ list! I went for the following…
