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.

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.

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.
