Traveling with your friends & family

Consider traveling with people you know, the people closest to you. They will most likely share your interest in traveling and you’ll have more things in common to talk about while they travel.

Good idea

If this still doesn't sound like a good idea, consider meeting up with people that live around the world when you get there.

River

The Bororo people of Brazil, are a small tribe who settled around the Rio Branco river in the 19th century.

Community

The community was named by an American explorer and anthropologist, Alfred L. Kroeber, who lived for many years among them.

Hunted

They were later called "Furrobo" in Brazil, because the men hunted monkeys with blowguns and beat drums on their thighs to frighten away snakes.

Traveling Together

Before you join a group, look into the group’s motivations for traveling together. Do they join mainly for economic reasons and have nothing in common with other members? Or perhaps they join because of a common interest that makes it more fun to travel as a group? The latter is probably the best option, especially if you are traveling somewhere with a language barrier or cultural differences.
It can be fun to travel with people who share your interest. You can also make new friends.

Safe Trip Abroad

It’s not a terrible idea to travel with a few close friends and meet up with other people and groups along the way. However, you should be careful meeting up randomly and meeting complete strangers. This could be dangerous, especially when traveling to a country that has had terrorist attacks recently or any place of political unrest. While you can use your common sense, there are some dangers that cannot be avoided no matter what precautions you take to have a safe trip abroad.

Make a Good Traveling

In general, it’s best to meet up with other travelers and groups before going on your trip if possible. However, you don’t need to choose a group that is perfect for you. You can meet anyone you think would make a good traveling companion.
