[Drifter Friends] Blogs Boxing Over UK Expats, Dutch Stereotypes, Singaporean Villages, Filipino Travel VLogs, Thai Cookery and Indian Food Poisoning
Every day, I share a travel related post on my Facebook Page from either a fellow travel blogger who follows my page and interacts with me there, or from another Facebook travel blogger whom I subscribe to and read regularly.
At the end of the week, I compile all 7 of my daily Facebook "Travel Blog Shares" into one blog post published here, with the intent of making good quality travel content easier to find and more accessible to my readers!
Here are this week's shared posts!
From The Roaming Tiger
Very few things can put a damper on your trip more than getting sick. Getting food poisoning is on the top of my list of maddening travel experiences. Sarah from The Roaming Tiger shared with her readers her feelings of disappointment and restlessness as she dealt with being sick in India.
From Budget Backpacker
OK, so there's just one video about the Philippines on their page so far, but that one video proves that the guys at Budget Backpacker know exactly what they're doing. It's no secret that I have an open obsession with the Philippines, and their video about Dominic's trip there does not help ease my present state of withdrawals.
From 20 Liter Adventures
Ethan from 20 Liter Adventure claims that despite being relatively new on the travel blogging scene, like myself, his blog can beat up everyone else's. Funny thing is, after reading his 5 reasons why he knows this is so, I truly believe him, (at least on my account.) Props to you man, this is me, gracefully bowing out.
From The Paper Planes Blog
I recently asked if you preferred to learn a language or learn how to cook a cuisine. I chose cook. Someone else asked what my favorite international cuisine was, I said Thai. Both lines of thought lead me to today's travel blog share by Alana from The Paper Planes Blog. She wrote to her readers about how to go about getting into a quality cooking course in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Thai, anyone?
From Vagabonding Travel
Do you hate stereotypes? Then stop reading here. On second thought, nah, just get over it! Because this post by Greg from Vagabonding Travel is way too good to pass up. Take some time out to enlighten yourself on the ins-and-outs of Dutch stereotypes!
From Endlessly Changing Horizon
I know very well what it's like to uproot and make a new life in another country, Taiwan. In one of their recent posts, Miranda & Dylan at Endlessly Changing Horizon shared their view of going through the same experience, but from the other side of the world in the UK. As I read their post, I learned that although we were on opposite ends of the globe, there were many common threads throughout both of our experiences.
From Stories on Travel
What do you think of when you hear the name Singapore? Highrises and skyscrapers? Or coconut trees, wild boars, dogs and chickens? Noel from Stories On Travel took his readers back in time to the last traditional village remaining in this highly modernized Asian nation.

I am always looking for new travel related content to read and share, so if you have a post you'd like me to check out, PLEASE get on my radar. Mahalo!
I'm JR. I come from a long line of adventurers, some were nomadic explorers of the sea and others wandering cultivators of the earth. Ultimately, this legacy of drifters has deeply affected my view of travel. Read more...
