Welcome to Drifter Planet – One of the Top Travel Blogs from India
Hi, 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.
Drifter Planet is a travel blog about our crazy life as we travel around the world with our beloved GoPro and tent. You will mostly find us on our hammocks being lazy but on other days dancing in a psytrance music festival or chasing waterfalls, or jumping off airplanes, or volunteering in a village… or sometimes doing “odd jobs” while we travel to make some money.
Drifter Planet is one of the top travel blogs from India. Our motto – “Travel like a happy hippie” and we love spreading happiness where we go. Click here to know more about us.
