All Posts

All Posts, AKA, the sleepless night Dan turned two years of his life into a table, is an index of every active blog post on this site.

Take a look at them all. Just imagine how long it took to make this table. Then imagine how long it took to write all those posts. It’s like thinking about how many stars there are in the galaxy, and then how many galaxies there are in the universe!

Where in the universe is the new travel blog?

Or… something like that.

Whatever galaxy you find yourself clicking on, I hope you enjoy what you find.

Notes at the bottom.

  • * Brand new posts might be missing, as the list does not update automatically.
  • * Under Reviews, you will find external content that I wrote prior to having this blog.
  • * Occasionally older content looks funny because of site changes over the year. If you come across a 2014 post that looks odd, I’d be grateful if you dropped me a line.
  • * Some posts, notably the sections Hostels and Shop contain affiliate ads. That means if you book or buy something through my links, you price remains the same but I get paid for directing you to it. This is an important part of funding this site and I appreciate every click.
  • * Post titles can be searched using the search bar at the top.
  • * Occasionally I write other blog length entries on Medium or Quora.
