All Travel Blog Posts by Drifter Planet

If you’d like to read all my travel blog posts, then you will find them on this page from the newest one to the oldest. Just keep clicking “older entries” at the bottom of the page till you reach the end.

Not only will you find posts about different travel destinations but also music festivals.

I have a thing for writing highly researched itineraries. I often write itineraries with information about public transport because I often travel solo and use trains or buses. I also write road trip routes because when I travel with my family, we like to rent a car.

Travel Resources that I recommend

 

Booking.com

The best thing about Booking.com is that there is free cancellation for MOST of the properties that are listed with them. We somehow end up finding the best prices and deals on Bookings.com and over the years, we have stopped using all other hotel websites except this.

Get Your Guide

Get Your Guide is very useful when you want to visit an attraction that’s very popular and queues tend to get very long outside. You can find a “skip the lines” ticket for literally every attraction around the world, which is sometimes the same cost as the normal entry ticket!

Moreover, Get Your Guide works well for tours too. There are never any surprises when you book a tour with them. I love how you can reach other travelers’ reviews before selecting a tour.

Living in Europe since 2017, I have traveled to a lot. of countries within this continent but there are a few that I happily revisit over and over again.

That’s why, you will also find a lot of travel information about Amsterdam. I live close to Amsterdam and I love revisiting this lovely city and the Netherlands in general.

I often visit Portugal in summer, so expect to find a lot of guides about this lovely sunny country.

Back in 2016-16, we lived in Goa as well so we have a very detailed guide about this lovely (and hippie) beach destination.

Want to Start a Travel Blog?

Do you want to start a travel blog too? It is super simple. We highly recommend the below-mentioned resources:

Travel Blogging Resources

GoDaddy for buying a Domain Name (website name)

If you want to start a travel blog, then the first thing that you need to do is to get a domain name. GoDaddy is where I bought one and I recommend this website to you as well. But hey, only get a domain name from here, but no other service. For hosting, look at the next option.

Siteground for faster Web Hosting

My website is hosted with SiteGround and I love how awesome and instant their “chat support” is. My website was so slow with another host but has become very fast with Siteground.

GetResponse for sending emails to my subscribers

I have been using GetResponse to send out my monthly email newsletter to my website subscribers and I love it. No other email marketing service has the “perfect timing” option, that delivers the email at the time when a person is most likely to open it. Because of this feature, my email open rate is pretty high.

PS: Drifter Planet contains affiliate links. If you make a purchase through these links, we will earn a little commission at no extra cost to you. These commissions help us reduce the costs of keeping this site active. Thanks for reading!
