#TTOT Roundup: Epic Journeys

 Every Tuesday it's Travel Talk on Twitter! Follow the #TTOT tag to see what all the commotion and Tweets are about! There are two sessions to join, one at 9:30am GMT and the other at 9:30pm GMT.

Here's the round-up of this week's #TTOT: 

Q1 via : Which journey made you feel SMALL within the planet?
  • : Hiking in the Rocky Mountains
  • : Joining the travel community on Twitter. You guys have seen so much!
  • : Patagonia for sure!
  • Laying on the beach in Mexico and looking at the stars ... there was a ba-gill-ion of them!
  • : Crossing the Pacific by cargo freighter. 18 days of nonstop movement to get across. Massive ocean. Tiny people
  • : Physically the Great Wall of China - imagining that it was built by hand was mind boggling 

Q2 via : Ever taken a religious pilgrimage or had a visit to a religious/spiritual site move your soul? 
  • : Many temples in Kyoto
  • : Visited Assisi and Chapel of St.Francis. Peaceful, beautiful, humbling in it's simplicity 
  • : The amazing churches in Granda, Nicaragua moved me. You can't walk ten feet without running into a jaw dropping one there 
  • : The Wailing Wall in Israel, Tabgha in Galilee Region, and Sierra Blanca in New Mexico. Total Spiritual Awakenings! 
  • : Haven't been yet, but I'm sure Machu Picchu is going to make me sob like a baby
Machu Picchu, Peru

Q3 via : What is your perfect soundtrack for an epic journey?
  • Have to go with anything Muse. Epic ballads for an epic journey
  • : Silence
  • : I like Lost Highway by Bon Jovi..."I'm busting loose....I'm letting go...out on this open road..."
  • : Pet Sounds by the Beach Boys or Legend by Bob Marley and the Wailers 
  • : Never bring music when travelling. Just soak in as much culture as possible. Its more engaging I think
  • : Listened to Sigur Ros the whole time I drove the ring road in Iceland! 
Driving Iceland's majestic Ring Road

Q4 via : What took your breath away?
  • : Snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef
  • : Iguazu Falls. Absolutely spectacular. 
  • : A humpback whale lifting my kayak in Byron Bay, Australia
  • : I'd say the energy of new york, the architecture of paris and the wild beauty of the amazon jungle
Times Square, New York City

Q5 via : Tell us about the epic journey you have not yet done, but you will before you die.
  • : Roadtrip around New Zealand. This must be done. and soon. 
  • : Got the rest of my life and a lot of the gobe to travel...pretty epic. Til then there's this journey to work... 
  • : I'm going to walk the Camino de Santiago, maybe even next year... 
  • : I'll re-trace my mother's journey from Vietnam to the US: the high seas, Malaysia, Ford Chaffee in Ark, the Midwest, NorCal, SoCal 
  • : Wadi Rum & Petra. Bucket list, hopefully to be crossed off soon (maybe b/f the end of the year!)
The Treasury, Petra, Jordan
