Savannah also co-founded one of the most popular travel chats on Twitter, “The Road Less Travelled” AKA #TRLT which is held every single Tuesday at 1pm ET.

The Road Less Travelled (#TRLT) is a lively and inspiring Twitter chat that commenced on Tuesday 5 November 2013.  The first session exceeded our expectations and we were trending during the chat.  The following chats also trended and attracted even more activity.

#TRLT regularly ranks as one of the top 5 busiest Twitter travel chats in the world, and we have the highest response rate per question of any Twitter travel chat.

#TRLT discusses destinations overlooked on Twitter travel chats, such as Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia and Central America.  These are places that deserve to be considered as holiday options by more travellers and #TRLT is one way to generate discussion and interest in these destinations.

Founded by Shane, Ariana and Savannah, we all possess personal experience in places infrequently travelled by others, with Afghanistan being a particular favourite for each of us.

If you are a novice or seasoned traveller on such rarely trodden paths, or even if you are seeking to place your first foot on #TRLT then join us on the following times each Tuesday:

US PT: 1000 US ET: 1300 (1 pm)

UTC:  1800 (6 pm)

West Europe: 1900 (7 pm)

United Arab Emirates: 2100 (9pm)

What is a Twitter Chat? A brief explanation on how our twitter chat works. Five questions are asked on a chosen theme at approximately 10-12 minute intervals, and these are prefaced with Q1, Q2 and so on.  You answer each question with the relevant answer (A1, A2 etc.) and interact with others.  It is important to include #TRLT hashtag so your tweets can be followed by the hosts and other participants.#TRLT is a busy chat, and the best way to follow is to open a separate window for #TRLT and one for Interactions so you can follow the chat and who is chatting directly with you.

Good Deeds Challenge Year 2, Week 28

Welcome to my second Year of Good Deeds, a challenge I set myself during April 2013. I decided to do at least one Good Deed a day for a whole year, now I an into my second year.

New Good DeedsThis week I’ve been doing the following;

October 26th – Posted a guest author piece for new author Mark Giglio. http://wp.me/p2Eu3u-5UF Spent all day getting lost in Moscow Bound by Adrian Churchward a mystery set in Moscow and very good.

October 27th – Posted my review of Moscow Bound and began reading Restless Spirits by Kathy Bryson

October 28th – Driving test day today for my eldest, so we were all on tender hooks, bought flowers for her instructor praying for a pass. Yay she did it! Fab book review today with a great picture gallery of Back Packs and Bra Straps, Savannah Grace’s second book about her family backpacking around some beautiful and eye-opening parts of the world. http://wp.me/p2Eu3u-5Qu

October 29th – Walked into town and picked up litter on both legs of my journey.

October 30th – There are big celebrations of the war veterans this year with the anniversary of the start of WWI. The annual Poppy appeal is getting extra support and I bought my own poppy today and gave to the poppy appeal charity.

October 31st – Cleared leaves from a shared pathway and spent a little time out in the warm autumn afternoon. Gearing up for the start of the mystery November book tour tomorrow.

November 1st – Mystery November is off with Joanne Phillips and her book Murder at the Maples. http://wp.me/p2Eu3u-5OZ We have this awesome imaginary tour bus covered in my orange roses going all over the world each day to pick up the tour authors. Overnight Saturday I magically drove from the UK to Texas making sure I didn’t fall asleep and end up on the Grand Prix race track in Austin. The bus is picking up Della Connor for Sunday’s book Spirit Warriors: The Scarring.

BackPacks and Bra Straps by Savannah Grace

Backpacks and Bra Straps (Sihpromatum #2)Backpacks and Bra Straps by Savannah Grace

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Backpacks and Bra Straps is the second book following Savannah and her family as they spend a year Backpacking. They are a family group; Mum, older brother Ammon (a seasoned traveller), 18 year old Bree and 15 year old Savannah. They started their journey in China and the first book “I Grew My Boobs In China” tells of the way they adapted to the people and the cultures of the countries they began to travel through. Not on any big tourist trails, they have a small daily budget and travel on buses and trains as the locals do.

This second book has them crossing into Russia with a 7 hour delay whilst the train and all its occupants are searched, making their journey from Mongolia a whacking 37 hours. You get up close and personal accounts of their travels going to amazing places like Lake Baikal, the deepest, oldest and cleanest lake in the world. Along the way they meet people who so often go out of their way to help them find accommodation, buy tickets and deal with language barriers. It returns your faith in mankind.

Their journey doesn’t go without challenges and fears, sometimes the journeys were really dangerous as mad drivers raced on roads up and down mountain sides and crossing border controls was often painstakingly slow with the need to work their way around officialdom on a number of occasions.

What is great about these books, is meeting the real people and seeing places that few others experience because of the way the have chosen to travel. Living in close proximity does have it’s own challenges which they learn to overcome, and the life lessons that Savannah has more than makes up for being taken out of her Canadian school and leaving her friends thousands of miles away.

This part of their journey ends with Bree’s friend Steph joining them for a two week hike to base camp mount Everest, a most memorable journey and I felt I travelled with them every step of the way, it meant different things to each of them when they conquered the climb and as they left the area in a helicopter for their next adventure Savannah reflects on her new word “Sihpromatum” a curse that turns into a blessing which sums up how she feels about much of this experience.

I really do recommend these books to anyone with even a slight interest in travel and the rest of the world.

Good Deeds Challenge Year 2, Week 25

New Good DeedsThis week I’ve been doing the following;

The second book about selling up and taking your family backpacking. Savannah was just 15 when her Mum decided to take her out of her school in Canada for an education on the road, along with her older siblings these books tell of the hardships and wonders of the world.

October 7th – Walked to town in some late sun and picked up litter on my route. Spontaneously walked into Superdrug and had my flu jab, this is a good deed in that I won’t get the flu and spread it around.  Good Deeds received, took delivery of a lovely jewelled book mark from author Jill Hughey which I’d won in a prize draw. Returned the deed by offering to review her latest book Eruption: Yellowblown (What would happen if the Yellowstone Volcano erupts?)

October 8th – Looking around University courses this afternoon. Noticed a friend no longer had her umbrella, as it had stopped raining she had forgotten about it. She went back to the lecture theatre to find it.

October 9th – Busy day whizzing all over the place, fitted in a visit to my parents, took over a copy of a book I’d read. Good Deeds received: Came home with a lovely dozen of fresh eggs.

15990739SIHPROMATUM (Sip-row-may-tum) is a memoir series of one family’s four-year backpacking adventure around the world. The first instalment, I Grew my Boobs in China, is the beginning of an intensely fascinating, sobering, and emotional memoir of Savannah’s introspective and innovative family adventure.

In 2005, 14-year-old Savannah Grace’s world is shattered when her mother unexpectedly announces that she and her family (mother, 45; brother, 25; sister, 17) would soon embark on an incredible, open-ended journey. When everything from her pets to the house she lived in is either sold, given away or put in storage, this naïve teenage girl runs headlong into the reality and hardships of a life on the road.
Built around a startling backdrop of over eighty countries (I Grew my Boobs in China relates the family’s adventures in China and Mongolia), this is a tale of feminine maturation – of Savannah’s metamorphosis from ingénue to woman-of-the-world. Nibbling roasted duck tongues in China and being stranded in Mongolia’s Gobi Desert are just two experiences that contribute to Savannah’s exploration of new cultures and to the process of adapting to the world around her.

Good Deeds Week 11th – 17th August

Let’s get on with my next round up of Good Deeds from my year long challenge. If you are new to this page, back in April, I started one Good Deed a day on the day I started reading “A Year of Doing Good” by Judith O’Reilly. I’m thrilled to tell you that last week Judith agreed to come and be a guest author on the blog after the school holidays are over. As I’m planning  the Romancing September World Blog Tour for the whole of September, I’ll pencil in her interview for early October.

Good deeds

11th August – Finished reading a book today and posted my review on Goodreads for the author, I needed to finish the book so that I could send a set of questions to the author who is also taking part in our Romancing September tour. Have been really busy promoting the opportunity for authors to promote their work for free in two places across the world on the same day.

12th August – Doing Good Deeds for others is truly amazing my cup is overfloweth, well my inbox is! Romancing September has gone overboard and we’ve been inundated today with requests to join the tour. On top of that I’m sorting out guest posts for authors on my blog  for August  and October. Sent my daughter off to see friends with a box of cakes. Had an appointment at my chiropractor and confessed that my neck and shoulders were a mess due to spending too many hours at the computer. Brought a smile to his face when I told him it was all self inflicted due to this super addictive blog. Suggested he browse his table in the waiting room and pick up copy of Fleet Life to see my page of “Rosie’s Good Reads”, two plugs there, one for Fleet Life and one for me! Have been sending love and support across to America for a blogging friend facing some medical demons.

13th August – Posted a guest author interview for a hugely popular author, at the age of 14 Savannah Grace was taken backpacking for a year with her family, she kept a diary and wrote a book about their adventures, she then got the travel bug and has travelled all over the world. Check out her post here, I was so pleased I could introduce readers to her adventures. http://wp.me/p2Eu3u-2mb A busy day, but I still had time to pick up litter when I went for a walk to post a letter.

14th August – Took my son to the park for a game of tennis, picked up litter on the way out as a thank you for the lovely free facilities. Just had a phone call from my husband’s aunt who wants to pay us a visit on Friday afternoon, so I need to run around like a mad thing tidying the house as we are in school holiday mode. It will give me a great opportunity for a good deed because she wants me to help her find a cottage that her Grandmother used to live in. We laugh that this will be a royal visit! She’s of an era that oozes etiquette and she is a tour guide for Prince Charles’ gardens, so we’re pretty close with our label.

15th August – Did the grocery shopping today and gave a donation to a charity called “Children’s Hope Foundation” a charity for children with special needs.

16th August -Have done the Good Deed for my husband’s Aunt, I took her to visit some houses that her cousins and Grandmother lived in over 50 years ago. Sadly all has changed and there was little left of the places she knew, but she had tied it in with a visit in the morning to a house where her and her husband had once lived. She is 84 and wears me out with all her activities, she plans to fit in trips to Scotland, Anglesey and the gardens of Versailles in Paris all before the end of September!

17th August – Friends dropped by to pick up some books. I was extremely pleased when a conversation I had with the husband on Thursday encouraged him to visit his mother who has Alzheimer’s. She didn’t know who he was, but his guilt and fear had lifted and he was able to face his father once more.

Guest Author Savannah Grace

Please welcome Savannah Grace author of Sihpromatum – I Grew My Boobs in China, a book which follows to experiences of a 14 year old who went backpacking with her family.

Sihpromatum - I Grew My Boobs in China

You can read my review of this book here.

Sihpromatum is available on Amazon.co.uk and Amazon .com

I spent a delightful Friday evening with friends discussing travelling around the world in a gap year or as backpackers. Savannah’s book came up in our conversation, so it was a delight when she contacted me, in reply to a universal request for authors to interview.

Savannah Grace Author

1) Where did you grow up?

I grew up in North and West Vancouver, Canada. It’s a beautiful place with the city settled between the sea and mountains.

2) Had you travelled much before you set off backpacking?

I’d never been out of North America before we embarked on our round-the-world trip. I wouldn’t say my family was ever typical though. When I was in elementary school I skipped a few weeks of class here and there to go on family camping trips across the U.S. By the age of 7 I’d already visited about 35 U.S. states. We also did yearly road trips down to California to enjoy all the amusement parks. Before leaving we had a small family-run tour company for ESL (English as a Second Language) students doing local adventure tours river rafting, sky diving, bungee jumping, skiing, etc. But the only flight I’d ever taken before, aside from skydiving, was to Hawaii for my sister’s gymnastics competition.

3) Can you remind the readers of your initial thoughts about the trip and being uprooted from family and friends.

The news that we were going traveling came completely unexpectedly. The idea had never been discussed or considered prior so it came as a total shock. My parents had just separated (which inspired mom’s decision to do it) so just when I’d thought my whole world had fallen apart, it got worse. One day she simply announced that we were going to pack up everything, live out of backpacks and travel for a year. I was terrified by the concept of backpacking. I was the most terrified about the food, missing home and having to use a squatty toilet.

4) How far into the trip were you when you finally began to appreciate the adventure? What changed you?

A definite a-ha! moment was coming into Yangshuo on my first sleeper bus, only 5 days into the trip. Looking out the window at the sunrise revealing the bizarre scenery really opened my eyes to the beauty of being abroad. It revealed the excitement travel could bring. Being on the top of a hill in Mongolia at White Lake looking out over the world was another awe inspiring moment, that was about 2.5 months in. Although I certainly had many similar moments that made me stop and think about the unbelievable experience I was being given, I was still trapped within on a rollercoaster of female, teenage emotions. The entire trip was a process of learning and discovery for me and I’m thankful now to have had that opportunity.

5) Can you list 5 essential items for anyone embarking on a similar adventure.

I would say, of course, a passport, vaccinations, visas and camera as those are the basic necessities. A note pad and journal are a MUST in my opinion, along with mosquito repellent and a deck of cards if you’re not travelling solo. We always had a small daypack to carry around during day trips and to carry more important items.

6) Can you think of 5 items that first time backpackers believe they need which they soon discover are useless or a waste of time and space.

Hair dryer, sleeping bag, tent, hiking boots and extra clothes. I know that some backpackers carry around tents and heavy hiking boots. Unless you’re really planning a full time camping trip, these often become nothing but dead weight. Traveling in Asia is so cheap you can stay in hostels and guest houses and not worry about camping to save money. Africa is a pretty difficult place to camp unless you have your own transport. Europe would be a realistic place to use a tent, but during summer time would be best.  I personally never used my sleeping bag and instead slept in the dirty ones the hostels/hotels/guest houses provided. If you are in warm weather places I would suggest packing a sheet, which is light in both temperature and weight.  People generally pack too many clothes on a long term trip. I consider things like a hairdryer useless as reliable electricity was frequently unavailable in many countries.

7) Toilets would be a big issue for me on any such trip, how did you overcome the western world sanitary comforts?

Oh, you just have to live with it. As far as overcoming, there comes a point where you literally don’t have any choice. It’s either having an accident in your pants, or using the toilets that are provided. It’s amazing what you can and will do in a situation with no escape.  I suppose in the end you learn what you are comfortable with and travel within that comfort zone.  If you really need the western sanitary comforts, you’ll be paying more and staying in expensive hotels all the time.

8) When I travel I feel it is important to be able to speak a few words in the local language for courtesy and practical purposes. Do you agree? How can travellers avoid being rude and upsetting the local people?

Yes, definitely. We were never in a place long enough to conquer a language, and I can’t say I’m a particular linguistic master. Learning “please” “thank you” “goodbye” “hello” are the bare minimum basics every traveler should make the effort to learn to show that they respect where they are. Avoid upsetting locals by being patient and very open minded. One girl I know, a fellow traveller blogger Bex, says she once helped a local in Greece and in return got spat on three times. “WHAT?!” you say. Yeah, spat on. Anyone of us would think this was a big insult, but in Greece it apparently means, a compliment: to ward off the evil eye of jealousy to such a beautiful person. Being open minded and patient is essential to avoid being rude.

Sisters in The Maldives

Sisters in The Maldives

9) Since the first trip which your book is about, you continued to travel, can you briefly tell the readers where you went on to next and how long for.

That is really difficult to sum up. The next installment in the series covers our overland journey through Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Western China, Tibet, Nepal, Maldives, Sri Lanka and India. That is a time frame of five months. From there we travelled west overland through Pakistan, Afghanistan, across the Caspian and Black Seas and finally entered Europe. After Europe we took a crazy turn and nearly circumnavigated the entire African continent, hitting 36 of 54 African countries. That is where I continued alone, ultimately moving to Holland at the age of 18.  The rest of the family continued on for another 6 months in SE Asia. The family journey lasted nearly 4 years.

10) Are you hoping to write more books about your adventures?

Most definitely! There will be a few more books in the series to come. I’m currently working on #2. It would be impossible for me to wrap up nearly 4 years and 80 countries in one book. The characters will continue to grow and develop, with the group dynamic ever evolving and fluctuating. New characters are introduced because a few friends from home flew out to join us for a few weeks each at different times. In Sihpromatum #2 readers will experience parts of the silk road, Tibetan monasteries, the strength of Nepali sherpas in the incredible Himalayas then live in the colors and chaos of India and then contrast this with the relaxing beauty of the Maldives. And of course there will be the adventure, humour and excitement that was found in my first book too.
