Top 10 Cliques of #FTUDC (Frequent Traveler University)


Frequent Traveler University was held this past weekend in the Washington DC area, more specifically in Tyson’s Corner, Virginia.


Over the course of three days, I have noticed different types of cliques that were formed at #FTUDC. Here, I present the top 10 cliques of #FTUDC:

Number 10. The Couple – It’s great to spend time with a significant other at FTU.


Number 9. The guy on the laptop –  Taking notes religiously as if it were a lecture hall.


Number 8. The guy on the phone – He already knows everything.


Number 7. The Sponsors – They tend to only talk amongst themselves and other sponsors at nearby booths.


Number 6. The Girls – They always tend to stick together like sorority sisters.

Number 5. The Hallway – Where new business deals are made.

Number 4. The Bloggers – They tend to stick together with other bloggers in the infamous Hallway.

Number 3. The Twitterers of #FTUDC – The official Twitter hashtag is #FTUDC which was used widely this weekend and the months leading up to the event. There was a Tweet Up held by Travel Summary on Saturday in the lobby bar area of the Hilton Tyson’s Corner. (Photo courtesy of @TopTravelista)

Number 1. Lucky’s following – Wherever Ben (One Mile at a Time) goes, his followers goes with him.

  4. This is funny. It’s almost like I was there.

  5. Too bad I missed it. Which clique did you fall into?

  6. I really should have paid attention to the announcements because this session was in my backyard and I could have easily attended. Arrrggghhhh, now I have to travel somewhere to go to a future one. Then again, yeah, I get to travel somewhere for a future one.

    Miles is a great name for a dog!
