Friendly Planet Blog

Submit your True Travel Tales to win prizes and be featured on our blog!

When you have an amazing experience while traveling, it creates a memory that will last a lifetime. I have many of those memories, some of which I’ve shared here on the blog.

Now, we want you to share your traveling memories. We’re adding a new feature to our blog which we’ve titled ‘True Travel Tales’. We’re inviting everyone who has traveled on any Friendly Planet Travel tour to submit a True Travel Tale of their own. It can be your favorite, funniest, or most heartwarming story or photos from a Friendly Planet trip. Just tell us what made your trip memorable for you and your family.

We’ll feature some of our favorite True Travel Tales on our blog, Facebook page, and Twitter feed, which reach millions of travelers. As an added bonus, the entrants who have their stories chosen will receive a coupon for $100 off their next Friendly Planet Travel booking, and a copy of “One Day on Earth” on DVD.

Here’s how it works: Anyone can submit a True Travel Tale to us. You can submit your story, a few photos with descriptions, or both. If your entry is chosen, you will win a $100 off coupon for your next Friendly Planet Travel tour, plus a copy of the “One Day on Earth” DVD. The $100 coupon has no expiration date and may be used toward the total purchase price of any booking. It cannot be combined with any other offers or discounts, and expires on Dec. 31, 2014.

Submitting a True Travel Tale is easy. Just email your story and/or photos from your trip to us at We have a few details we’d like you to keep in mind before submitting your True Travel Tale:

  • Please keep your story brief (400 words max). Unfortunately, we are not able to publish all stories we receive, and we reserve the right to edit submissions for length and clarity.
  • Please send your story in the body of the email, and include a photo as an attachment.
  • We’d love for you to submit photos of you and your travel companions, so please include the names of everyone in the photo. Please also provide a brief description of the photo, including where it was and what you were doing. We ask that you be the photographer of all the photos you submit, and by submitting your photo to us, you grant us permission to publish it on our blog, Twitter, or Facebook page.
  • We’ll notify you if we plan to include your True Travel Tale on our blog or other networks. Please include a valid email address or phone number so we can reach you if we have any questions.

So start submitting! We can’t wait to read your favorite memories from your Friendly Planet Travel trip.
