Social media has affected travel in innumerable ways. How we travel in the modern day is something we talk a lot about on these chats, from trip-planning to storytelling. One of those changes is how much momentum a destination can gain when travels use social media to share its allures. On of the best examples of this phenomenon is Iceland.

Prominent modern explorers like Chris Burkard and Sam Horine fill our Instagram feeds with stark mountain ranges and icy coastlines, and like never before this island nation in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean is at the forefront of tourism. The country itself has embraces its position as a leader in digital tourism, increasing the enthusiasm even more.

Join us on Wednesday, November 19th at 1PM EST for a #PassionPassport Twitter Chat all about Iceland as we share stories and wish lists as we chat with co-hosts @TheBlondeAbroad and @syssaeinars. Make sure to use the tag #PassionPassport to join the conversation.
