#TTOT Round-Up: Undiscovered Places

Every Tuesday, it's Travel Talk on Twitter! Join either of the two sessions at 9:30am GMT and 9:30pm GMT to get in on all the fun travel talk! Just follow the #TTOT hashtag!

Here's the round-up of this week's #TTOT on "Undiscovered Places!" 

Q1 via Which 'undiscovered place' could you rediscover over and over again?
  • : The Julian Alps in Slovenia - they're clean, green and extreme 
  • : Anywhere in New Zealand, love it there 
  • : I'd love to rediscover the magic of Sevilla, Spain again and again. Love the authenticity
  • : Botswana - specifically the Okavango Delta. One of the most peaceful places I've ever been
  • : India - so much to see you could keep going back and see something different
  • : New York City. I could live there my whole life and always find something new to see/do
  • : Grand Cayman never gets old: white sand, warm, clear water ... the perfect getaway

Q2 via Which country still has the most undiscovered places?
  • : Antarctica's got some pretty remote places, the last really undiscovered continent 
  • : I would definitely say parts of Bolivia. Wish I had more time in the Amazon
  • : Australia! Hoping to spend a solid month traveling around there when I get to go 
  • : Bhutan only nation in the world without a single traffic light, a Shangri-la with restricted outside influence
  • : Greenland, no doubt. Loads of places completely untouched by man!
  • : Has to be without doubt Papua New Guinea - its totally undiscovered and a mere knowledge bank for travellers 
  • : Maybe Indonesia? There are all those islands to choose from
  • : North Korea probably has the most undiscovered places? Also China, Australia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan & the CCAR, Pakistan, Russia 
  • : Africa (yep, the whole darn Continent!)

Q3 via What have you found that is undiscovered in a place that is already very well discovered?
  • : The street food of Vietnam! Always amazing finding out what each tiny plastic stool
  • : Sea caves in Hawaii. A good amount barely anybody knows about
  • : Love discovering a new wine in any destination, usually right at the top of my list of must discovers 
  • : Famous artworks in small churches of Rome 
  • : A totally deserted (apart from the crabs) beach in the Bahamas. Swam with an eagle ray on the way back to the boat. It was magic  
  • : We found a dinosaur excavation in Argentina 
  • Local people's opinions and thoughts, something that requires time and language to discover 

Q4 via "Undiscovered" could be the same as "overlooked." What familiar places have you seen with new eyes? 
  • : Traveling with a friend who's never been there is like seeing it for the first time
  • : Revisiting places I visited as a child is interesting as many times they seem different than I remember them 
  • : Used to live in Paris pre-kids but just went back with kids to show them. So different and fun to see it from their POV 
  • : I just moved to Mumbai and whilst it's the sixth time here, I am seeing a whole new world as a local 
  • : An appreciation for different foods as I grow older shows me a different side of the same place 
  • : Every time I come home from an overseas trip I am stunned by how crystal clear the air is in New Zealand 
  • : The Borobudur. or carvings on ancient temples. I've underestimated the details for too long 

Q5 via Where did you last discover?
  • : Jordan! Dead Sea, Petra, Wadi Rum, Jerash, Need I say more?
  • : I just came back from Southern Germany, the Black Forest region... That was magical! Like in a Brothers Grimms' fairy tale 
  • : Bacalar, in Quintana Roo, Mexico! Usually not a tropical kinda gal but loved discovering that little sliver of paradise 
  • : Probably wandering through the quirkier streets of Copenhagen after attending church in Jerusalemskirken 
  • : Discovered Mathura & Vrindavan, Krishna's hometown
  • Kuala Lumpur - just moved here and every time I walk around I discover something new 
  • La Gomera in the Canary Islands - had expected island to be 'different' but ruggedness of landscape still a surprise 
  • : Alcazaba in Malaga, loved it could live there forever, hidden corners, patios carved columns, fountains, views, massive walls ... 

And there you have it, "Undiscovered Places!"
