Travel inspires us, and allows our creativity to flow. At every turn, we are surrounded by an abundance of new environments and experiences… but sometimes it can be difficult to share these moments in an authentic way.

Next week we’re teaming up with @SouthwestAir to chat all things ‘Travel Storytelling’. We’re not only sharing travel stories, but also exploring the many methods of storytelling. We want to hear about how your storytelling has evolved over the course of your travels, what you’ve learned, and what tips you can add to the conversation. Make sure to bring some examples of your best work!

Join us, @erubes1, @andrewtkearns, @zachallia, @laurenlemon & the Passion Passport community on Wednesday the 13th of December from 2:30-3:30pm EST and be sure to tag your tweets with #PassionPassport and #175Stories.
