We all know that traveling is an enjoyable yet complicated thing to do. It stirs up a lot of emotions and somehow urges us to do things which we thought were impossible.
We all have these different styles and preferences that sometimes make us feel down. Some might have chosen to set out to travel alone because they feel like they can appreciate more things and clear their minds off all the pressures they have. Others choose to travel in groups because they believe that the more, the merrier.
After all, however we choose to live our lives, we all look for this kind of belongingness- somewhere we can feel at home, share our feelings with and ask for advices. In this modern time, we have what we call the ‘global village’ and Facebook, as one of the often used social media, offers us exactly what we want: a community.
Now, wherever you might be and whatever you are up to right now, here are some Facebook groups that you should definitely check out. Who knows, you might find your love of your life through these groups and you can set out together like our white and brown monkeys.
The Backpackers Group
If backpacking is your thing, these are definitely the groups that you need to check out. Word: If you are an avid traveler, then you should already know what backpacking is and are able to know the dos and don’ts by heart. If you are a hiker, a trekker, a climber or whatever you call it, here are groups for you to share all your experiences.
Since backpacking had been so common in South East Asia, South East Asia Backpacking is a specialized group for those who have been and are planning to backpack around the area. Backpackers of the Philippines is a more specific group where the members share their awesome and fun itineraries for trips around the Philippines. There are also some which posts their travel details and find travel buddies like the Couchsurfing Manila. How awesome is that?
Many groups are open for backpackers around the world such as Backpackers, Backpackers Community, Backpackers International Business Community and Backpacking, NOMADS. You may join in right after the admins approve your requests. The rest is up to you to enjoy and mingle.

Bold enough to feel the thrill and run after the adrenaline? Hitchhiking is another facet of traveling which is as exciting as any other activity. The hitchhiking communities allow people to share their experiences and tips about hitchhiking.
The best way about being able to travel is about having the opportunity to share all the awesome experiences you gained and the learning you gathered.
