In September we launched our Friends Feature enabling our users to connect with fellow travellers. Over 1900 friendship connections have been made since then and our team is working hard to enhance your user experience.

Today we're thrilled to announce some new updates in this regard :-)

You can now enjoy a 90-day timeline to see your friends' latest travels and special achievements, like visiting World Heritage Sites (WHS), now prominently featured on profiles.

Also, take control of your privacy with customisable settings to manage who sees your journey. Plus, adding or unfriending is now just a click away, giving you flexibility in your social connections.

For a detailed look at all the updates in the friends feature and how they improve your experience on NomadMania, read our article here.

New Interview - Gabor Csonka

Meet Gabor Csonka, often considered the biggest Hungarian traveller in terms of NomadMania regions. Gabor's passion for exploration has taken him to over 146 countries, with a unique journey that began with 12 years of continuous hitchhiking.

This year, we had the pleasure of attending his festival, Jaratlan Utakon and you can read our report on this fascinating event here.

Q: In the Hungarian community, are you considered the biggest traveller?

A: Yes, probably. There might be others who've been to more countries for work, but my journeys have been personal. It's a long road, filled with learning and living in each place until my visa ends. 

For a deeper dive into Gabor's extraordinary life of travel, read the full interview on our blog.
