Away.com Hosts Twitter's Traveler's Night In (#TNI) on Family Travel

TravelersNightIn Today Away.com will have the pleasure of hosting a Family Travel-themed "Travelers Night In," a.k.a. #TNI, on Twitter. #TNI, is a weekly gathering of travel professionals, connoisseurs, institutions, and wayfarers, every Thursday from 3:30 PM to 5:00 PM EST using Twitter. #TNI was started by the travel team at ZipSetGo.com, an online community-based travel website focused on destinations. The format is simple: A host is chosen to ask ten questions every ten minutes on a specific travel-related topic. Participants are encouraged to tweet their answers to the questions followed with the hashtag #TNI, fueling 90 minutes of lively discussion.

How it works
When we participated in our first #TNI on the Worst of Travel a few weeks ago, questions ranged from the resourceful (ex., your best travel tips) to the colorful (ex., your worst luggage disaster). Over the past few weeks of participating, one common theme has emerged, #TNI is less about broadcasting your "travel know-how" and more about sharing stories, tips, to-do's, must-see's and questions with a collective group of individuals who are keen on travel.

How to participate
To join in on this social-media goodness, follow the hashtag #TNI either on Twitter, TweetGrid, or using a third-party app (HootSuite or Tweetdeck, search for #TNI).

This week's topic: Family Travel
While the topic of "family travel" may not seem as spicy as some of the past topics (Worst of Travel, Adventure Travel, Sun and Fun), we've got some fun questions lined up to help de-mystify the good, bad, and occasionally ugly (screaming children, anyone?) of traveling with kids, as well as some helpful tips and lessons learned along the way.

Join us today (Thursday, June 3rd) at 3:30 PM EST on Twitter. Follow us @awayblog for more details!

... if we're not enough to get you jazzed, you can also win a trip to Cancun just by participating!

Yucatán Holidays is sponsoring this week's #TNI. Ten participants will win five days/four nights of hotel accommodation in Cancun for two adults and up to two kids. Winners have the choice of two beautiful hotels: Ocean Spa Hotel or Laguna Suites Golf + Spa!

More details on #TNI, its founders, and future events can be found on the ZipSetGo.com website, here.

Nice Topics on travel and vacations. L like it very much.There is one of the best place in the world for spending vacation is Bahamas.
It is nice place with sea, sea beach, luxurious suit,swimming pool, and many other things.for details you can search in Google with Bahamas vacation

To the people that want to travel to Spain and especially Andalucía I give you a good tip. There is a great hostel where you can crash! In the White Nest Hostel in Granada, recently opened, you can find a young international group of like minded people, in fresh vibrant surroundings. You will have a great time to remember your entire life…..Based at the foot of the Alambra, the area is both central and historical. I recommend you to stay in Hostels Granada and experience the life of Albayzin, Sacromonte and the heart of Granada itself.

#TNI is the BEST 90 minutes you'll spend all week! Talk travel with people all over the world!
