Welcome to Drifter Planet – One of the Top Travel Blogs from India
Namaste, I’m Sonal – a travel blogger from India. I have the heart of a hippie and the soul of a gypsy. I met Sandro (from Germany) in a music festival in Thailand and we eventually got married in India. Our aim is to inspire people to travel more with our travel stories, photos and videos.
Drifter Planet is one of the top travel blogs from India and is about our crazy life as we travel around the world in search of adventure with our beloved GoPro and tent. Our travel style is a mix of adventure, learning about cultures, or enjoying some of the best underground parties. You will mostly find us chilling on our hammocks but on other days climbing for hours to find a perfect viewpoint, or spending time with the locals to learn more about their culture, or completely going offline as we switch off our gadgets in a psytrance music festival. For us, life is all about experiencing new places and things as we travel together as a couple.
Our motto is to “travel like a happy hippie” and we love spreading happiness where we go. Click here to know more about us.
