Previously, our profiles were purely for use on our online forum Thorn Tree. New profiles are different in that you no longer need a password to sign up, and you can connect with us quickly through Facebook, Twitter or Google.
However, if you already created a profile in the past to interact with other travellers on Thorn Tree, you don't have to sign up again. You can simply login using the Legacy account option at the bottom of the sign-in page. All Thorn Tree users have been automatically switched over to the new profile effective October 2017.
