Travelling Together is Brighter!
Social travel network,, travels the world in search of fun this October.

October is the month most often associated around the world with Halloween and beer festivals, but the social travel network, TripTogether, has uncovered some of the lesser known enjoyable and carefree festivals the world has to offer in October.

The first stop is the International Festival of the Sahara, or the Camel Festival, which is held this year on October 1, 2014. The festival, which began in 1910, is Tunisia’s oldest and most popular festival celebrated in appreciation of nomadic history and traditions. Thousands of people from across the world take part in the desert festival filled with camel marathons, Arabian horse shows and races, Sloughi dog rabbit catching demonstrations, traditional singing and dancing, and poetry contests.

Next up, the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta that takes place October 4-12, 2014 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. Every year over 500 hot air balloons from across the world fill the sky in a colorful display. The event is the world’s largest hot air balloon festival and is also believed to be the most photographed event in the world. Each morning balloons of every shape, size, and color take to the sky in a harmonious lift-off drawing spectators to the incredible festival that includes precision flying events and magical evening events that feature illuminated balloons glowing in the night sky.

TripTogether ends its tour in Germany, where, instead of enjoying the Oktoberfest celebrations, thousands of people take part in the colorfully fun Entenrennen rubber duck race. This year, October 11, 2014 will be the date when thousands of rubber duckies will take to the waters of the Neckar River in Alleenbrücke in a race to the finish line. Spectators adopt a little duck and are eligible to win prizes depending on the placement of their little swimmer in the race.
