Tripmates, one of the first online social networks for travelers, has just launched its free website to connect people all over the world through their journeys. The interactive community for globetrekkers allows users to link up with others before they depart and communicate while they’re away. Members can search for new sightseeing buddies, meet cool locals at their destinations, get insider travel tips from others, share blogs and photos from their journeys, and join in the discussions on Tripmates’ message boards.
