Traveling in Indonesian is a traveling activity; moving from one place to another for various reasons, such as business, vacation, and so on. Most of the traveling activities are considered as a hobby rather than a job. In its development, traveling has a new designation such as backpacking. In my personal view, traveling is a way to open our horizons and broaden our knowledge in visiting new places or familiar places by trying to interact with objects around us.
Many consider traveling to be something that drains a lot of our pockets, of course, this assumption could be true, but if we know how to think like that it can change. In traveling, there are many ways to make this activity more enjoyable, that’s why there are many traveling communities emerging as we can see now along with the ease of communication and accommodation technology.
