Adventure Chat #10-Unexpected Adventures


When I began participating in Twitter chats I loved the amount of interacting and great information I was seeing. I also noticed that most chats were about travel. While I love traveling, I am more of an adventure junkie and enjoy local activities like camping and hiking and the occasional road trip. So, I started my own Twitter chat called #adventurechat on Monday’s at 10 am pst. It’s a fun and informative way for me to learn from everyone else’s adventures. I’ve had more than one person ask me for a blog transcript so here we go. I’ve taken out all retweets and responses that are confusing as well as putting all Q and A’s in order. While the pictures were beautiful I do not have the right to include them here but they are all a part of the full transcript on For the tenth chat, my co-host was @jessisawanderer and our topic was Unexpected Adventures. Being Memorial Day, we had a smaller group but a lot of love and excitement for the unexpected adventures we've embarked on. Here are the questions and transcripts from that chat.


1. What was your most unexpected adventure?

2. What the best thing about an unexpected adventure?

3. Have you been on an adventure that turned sour?

4. Which country or city offers the most unexpected adventures?

5. Do you need to search for the unexpected whilst on an adventure or does it come to you?

6. What is the best adventure that offers the unexpected?

7. Show us a pic of you on an unexpected adventure.

8. What unexpected adventure can someone have in your local area?

9. Do you prefer planned adventure or do you leave room for the unexpected?

10. If you could go anywhere for an adventure tomorrow, where would you go?
