Even the most meticulous planners among us can’t account for everything that will happen on the road. Whether that’s a rainstorm on the day you planned to hike, missing the last bus of the day, or meeting a new travel buddy.. the unexpected certainly can change our travel plans.

On Tuesday, October 30th, we’re talking about Unexpected Travel with Co-Hosts @de_weg_ and @HHLifestyleTrav, and the Passion Passport community. We want to hear how you deal with the unexpected and most importantly, how you embrace it! Make sure to tag us in your tweets with #PassionPassport.
