Relevant Facebook Groups

I seen a post in our group recently asking about other travel related groups on Facebook. There are many, some more similar to ours than others with varying levels of activity. Many are catering to those interested in general travel, where others are more specific platforms for alternative, less conventional travel and lifestyles. Here is a list of most of the more active ones. Do let me know if I have missed anything out. Share the wealth –
