Manifestos are not a new concept. They have been used over the years to decree a law, announce an event, publish rules and regulations. However, I never considered having a travel manifesto. The idea to develop my own travel manifesto was sparked when I participated in a tweet chat hosted by BootsnAll travel, using the hashtag #RTWChat. Through a series a questions, I was able to get a clear understanding of what a travel manifesto is and why it is needed.
With the first tweet chat question: Why is a Travel Manifesto Important? I was curious as to what others thought and a couple of answers caught my attention:

A1: To keep your intention clear & always right in front of you, & encourage you during rough times, reminding U why U travel #rtwchat
