Kibber, India

Now that the below live travel chat has finished, you can still check out the entire conversation over at It was an excellent chat session, with many interesting travel-related questions and answers submitted by many readers and visitors. If you’re looking for some useful ideas as to how you can travel long-term as well, be sure to check it out (the conversation is in the comments section of the link above).

And thank you to everyone who participated!

This is a little bit on the last-minute side of things but I wanted to let you all know about, and to invite you all to, an interesting live travel chat that is taking place tomorrow. Anil from hosts a monthly live chat where anyone and everyone is invited to ask questions and participate in the discussion that will take place in the comments section on his site.

And this month, Anil asked if I wanted to be his guest! So, the general topic of the travel chat will be “From Cruise Ships to Kabul” and we’ll talk about long-term travel, my trips to Afghanistan and other places, working on board cruise ships and anything else you want to talk about. We will both be sitting in our favorite cafe here in Bucharest, Romania, ready to interact with all of you.

Below I’ve provided the direct link to the chat (the link won’t work until the chat actually starts), so just click on that link tomorrow and you’ll be directed straight to the chat that is taking place. Then, all you need to do to join in the good times is to leave a comment and we shall respond in live time. And of course, the more people participating, the better!

So I hope you’ll be able to pop over and at least say hello tomorrow. Both Anil and I really believe that the most rewarding part of having our blogs is the interaction we are able to have with our readers and this is exactly why I’m quite excited about being a part of this chat idea.

On that note, I hope to chat with you all tomorrow! And here are all the details:

Tuesday, January 3rd
11am – 2pm (GMT)
1pm – 4pm (Bucharest time)
6am – 9am (New York)
