Read time: a bit over 2 minutes
Twitter: home to Justin Bieber’s ego, trolls, swathes of useless information, cat pictures and, when you dig a little deeper, some interesting takes on the world of travel.
To conjure up a plethora of interesting, startling and occasionally downright distasteful travel thoughts/tips/quotes/experiences, all you’ve got to do is type in some keywords and hit ‘search’. So we did. Here’s a selection of stuff we thought was worth sharing for one reason or another.* Enjoy.
