TravBuddy Farewell

Dear TravBuddies,

It is with great sadness that we must announce that TravBuddy will be shutting down on April 23, 2018.

You can download a backup file of your photos, reviews, and blogs via the instructions below.

We hope that the connections, friendships, and even marriages made through this site will endure, and that in some small measure we have been able to foster greater understanding between cultures and individuals.

Thank you to everybody, especially our community leaders, forum moderators, and supporters for your contributions and encouragement over the past thirteen years.


Eric & David (TravBuddy Co-Founders)
