At Passion Passport, we pride ourselves on being an inclusive, creative community of intentional travelers. So, for this week’s chat, we want to celebrate communities – our own, yours, and the ones you’ve made on your travels. Have you ever found yourself hosting a dinner for expats, or being invited to a wedding? How do you engage with other travelers?

For this week’s chat we’re talking about communities – how to build them and how to celebrate them. This Wednesday, January 31st at 2:30 – 3:30pm EST, join us @pip_says, @iamvagabond, @travthroughlife, @Destaddict and the Passion Passport community to talk about community! Make sure to tag us in your tweets with #PassionPassport.
