Is it only me or was the link to the chat removed from travel? Right now, the only way that I see is to scroll to the bottom, where the site-wide chat is listed, click on that, search for the travel chat and then go there. Should we not at least have it under "help"?
Perhaps it's a sign ;)– Mark MayoDec 20, 2013 at 11:23
Click on the "Stack Exchange" logo/link in the top left of the screen.
The SE sites you frequent will be listed at the top, with a chat button next to the current site. Click on that link, and you're in Chat.
Click on “Stack Exchange” at the top left. There is a list of sites, starting with the current site and the meta site. Next to the main site, there is a link to chat.
If you're missing something else from the old top bar, see New top bar quick reference guide / Where has the link to gone? on the main meta.
