To all you fabulous armchair and real-life travelers out there…
Do you have a deep curiosity and/or blazing passion for other cultures? If the answer is yes, then you won’t want to miss the See The World chat on Twitter, as we know there is much more to a country than famous landmarks and clichéd itineraries! Join @TheCultureur and @RovingAltruist every Wednesday at 12pPST/3pEST as we explore a new destination each week by taking a 360* approach to stimulate discussion on all things related to travel, culture, lifestyle, and food. After checking out the mesmerizing South Africa last week we head west in order to celebrate the 4th of July and take a look at the United States of America: the place where bigger is often better (true no?) and where Los Angeles sparkles, New York glitters and innovation, food, diversity, fashion, and the arts crop up everywhere else in between. Chances are you’ve been to at least one of the 50 states (if not, no worries — this will inspire an upcoming trip!) so don’t miss #SeeTheWorld on July 3rd to talk ‘merica and possibly win fabulous giveaways, courtesy of Historic Hotels of America (@HistoricHotelAm)! We also have 3 very special co-hosts: @Jayne_tweets, @elATLboy, and @AFARmedia!
ONE two-night stay (for 2) at the extravagant historical hotel, the Willard Intercontinental in Washington D.C.
An American institution and landmark of hospitality, the Willard InterContinental, Washington DC has hosted nearly every U.S. president since 1853. It was at the Willard that Julia Ward Howe wrote The Battle Hymn of the Republic, where President Ulysses S. Grant popularized the term “Lobbyist,” where Abraham Lincoln stayed prior to his inaugural and where Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King finished his renowned “I Have a Dream” speech.
