Travel blog network FREE deal brings together travelers around the globe

A travel blog network launched a few years ago that brings together travelers from all over the world. Users of 365.travel are all individuals that enjoy travel and have taken advantage of the free travel blogs provided by 365.travel to track and tell their travel stories.


It is becoming increasingly popular for travelers to create travel blogs and update them during their journeys - better than a postcard, more convenient than a phone call. Today’s travelers want to document their daily adventures in journal entries and pictures for their friends, family, and followers to view.




“I liked the sound of the .travel extension, and I realized that I could obtain a more attractive website with .travel,” commented co-owner of 365.travel, Robert Geoghegan, “As the .travel extension says exactly what it does, ‘on the packet,' I feel it has helped us gain a foothold in an extremely competitive area.”


It is easy to join the 365.travel community and get your own travel blog for free. Not only is a travel blog cost effective as compared to international phone calls or the unnecessary hassle of purchasing phone cards, but they are a great way to preserve memories. With a travel blog, you can keep a multi-media diary with photos, videos, and more to last forever.

Leipzig: Where arts and music deals thrive

Over the last few years, Leipzig has developed into one of the most dynamic cities in Europe, with the fastest-growing population in Germany. The East-German city mixes 1,001 years of tradition with a young heart, and this is evident in its rich arts and music scene.



2017 got off to a spectacular start with some outstanding exhibitions.  The new TITANIC 360° Panorama by panoramic artist Yadegar Asisi at the Panometer Leipzig revisits the most famous shipwreck of all time and shows the ocean giant as it is today at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. Meanwhile Leipzig’s Museum of Fine Arts is experiencing a true whirlwind of color with its special exhibition “Nolde and ‘Die Brücke’” (until 18 June 2017). The collaboration between the ‘Brücke’ group of artists and Emil Nolde, who was almost a generation older, marked the beginning of modern art in Germany. 

Eleven leading galleries and over 100 studios are now housed within the walls of what was once the largest cotton mill in continental Europe: The ‘Spinnerei’ in Leipzig is a must-see for contemporary art enthusiasts.  For the Spinnerei Gallery Tour, all galleries and exhibition spaces open new exhibitions (29/30 April and 15/16 September 2017). It is also worthwhile to take a detour to the nearby ‘Tapetenwerk’ or the recently re-opened ‘Kunstkraftwerk’: For the German premiere of the “Hundertwasser Experience”, the former heating plant has been transformed into a colorful, lively, engaging and immersive Hundertwasser world by Gianfranco Iannuzzi (until 24 August 2017).

Wagner fans can look forward to the performance of the complete “Ring des Nibelungen” with the Gewandhaus Orchestra under the musical direction of Prof. Ulrich Schirmer at the Leipzig Opera House (from 28 June to 2 July 2017). After more than 40 years, the Ring has returned to the city of Wagner's birth. The recent appointment of Andris Nelsons, aged 38, as the youngest Gewandhauskapellmeister of the past 150 years underlines how Leipzig both treasures its tradition and embraces the future. The international music world is already excitedly awaiting the arrival of the celebrated conductor in Leipzig in February 2018. The Gewandhaus Orchestra will be holding four weeks of concerts to mark both Nelsons’ inauguration and its 275th anniversary, with a festival concert as the high point on 11 March 2018.

In summer, many of Leipzig's music festivals can be enjoyed in the open air – often for free. Check out BACHmosphere on Leipzig market square as part of the annual Bachfest Leipzig (9-18 June 2017), “Klassik airleben” with the Gewandhaus Orchestra in the popular Rosental park (23/24 June 2017) or the Monday Concerts at the Bach Monument in front of St. Thomas Church (every Monday at 7pm in July and August).  The city’s music scene covers everything, not just classical, choral and opera but also jazz, indie, house and techno.  During Whitsun every spring 20,000 Goths from all over the world come together in Leipzig to join the Wave Gotik Treffen (2-5 June 2017). The annual Highfield Festival (18-20 August 2017) at Lake Störmthal near Leipzig is the biggest independent rock festival of East Germany, attracting large numbers with its wonderful dreamscape, the beach, the lake and of course the spectacular line-up.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida - Tralliance Registry Management Company, LLC (Tralliance), the Registry Operator of the .travel top level domain, signed on recently for a second ten-year Registry Agreement with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).

Long the primary tourism domain name for national governments, such as Egypt.travel and Germany.travel, the .travel top level domain provides a clear travel industry identity that doesn't leave smaller travel businesses in a confusing mix with thousands of unrelated industries. Ten years of history and success now provide .travel registrants an important level of confidence as many hundreds of new top level domains enter the market.

On its ten-year anniversary, TRMC would like to thank its many accredited registrars and many thousands of long-term registrants for their years of support.

Leipzig: Great deals in a city of culture and arts set in beautiful surroundings

A 70-minute train ride from Berlin, Leipzig is a buzzing city in the east of Germany. The cultural and architectural beauty of Leipzig has always been a source of inspiration for creative minds such as the composers Johann Sebastian Bach, Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, Robert Schumann, and Richard Wagner. Hardly any other city can claim as rich a musical heritage as Leipzig. The Gewandhaus Orchestra has cultivated classical music in Leipzig for over 250 years. St. Thomas' Boys Choir was founded over 800 years ago by the Augustinian Canons, and the Opera House is the third oldest civilian music theatre stage in Europe. The majority of the composers’ homes and workplaces are still standing today. This is unrivaled in Germany and, in international terms, is second only to Vienna.



Unique in Leipzig, however, is the proximity of these sites: You will experience 300 years of musical history in one afternoon! Opened in 2012, the so-called Leipzig Music Trail (“Leipziger Notenspur”) connects 23 authentic sites of Leipzig’s music history on a 5.3 km walking trail.


The world’s oldest trade fair city, Leipzig is also home to Germany’s second-oldest university. It was in Leipzig that, in 1989, the first Peaceful Revolution in history was started: On October 9, 1989, more than 70,000 people congregated in the streets of Leipzig to protest against the GDR regime. The demonstrators called out “We are the People” and “No violence.” The Monday demonstrations remained peaceful and set the course for fundamental change in Europe: The Berlin wall fell only one month later. Today, Leipzig is livelier than ever. The city's vibrant contemporary arts scene centers around the Spinnerei and the New Leipzig School of painting with key figure Neo Rauch.


Leipzig Region offers a host of possibilities: An amazing diversity of nature, culture, history, and architecture are right on Leipzig's doorstep. Three areas of countryside around Leipzig, which couldn't be more different from each other, epitomize diversity: With its 22 lakes, the Leipzig New Lakeland area is the ideal place for recreation, swimming and all kinds of outdoor activities and trend sports. The Saxon Heathland area, which includes the beautiful Düben Heath and Dahlen Heath, is just perfect for walking, cycling, and riding. And in Saxony's Castle Country, there are countless romantic towns and historic castles, monasteries, and manor houses waiting to be discovered – 20 to 90 minutes away from the city at the most.


As the official tourist board, Leipzig Tourism and Marketing promotes the Leipzig region worldwide as a travel destination. It provides information, accommodation, guided tours, day trips for individuals and groups, incentives, as well as conference and event locations.


Leipzig Tourism and Marketing is proud to use .travel to promote its beautiful city. Visit the website http://www.leipzig.travel to plan a trip to the Leipzig region.

Alabama sweet on .travel domain deal

One of the many faces in .travel is www.Alabama.travel . Alabama, known as “Sweet Home Alabama,” is one of the most beautiful areas in the Southern United States. With over 4.6 million people calling it home, Alabama is among the nation’s leaders in aerospace, education, and healthcare.


The Alabama Bureau of Tourism and Travel decided in 2007 to begin the process of switching from other top level domains to .travel, because the chance to get in early with a more respected top level domain was too good to pass up. According to Luckie & Company, “We honestly had some reservations at first about how consumers might react to a new domain. But early testing on keyword ads and other studies showed that people seemed to respond extremely well to a .travel address.”


Alabama reiterates their dedication to .travel by using .travel on all of their marketing and promotion materials, including, email, TV commercials, web banners, trade shows, and brochures. When asked about .travel’s credibility, Luckie & Company stated, “With the .travel registrars continuing to manage the assignment of names responsibly, it pays off in the long-term by adding an extra level of credibility to .travel sites.”


There is no doubt that www.Alabama.travel will continue their growth and expansion of tourism through .travel. If you are interested in learning more about this great state, please visit, www.alabama.travel.

Cancun Convention and Visitors Bureau has the deals with online reach via .travel

Cancun is a place like no other: white sandy beaches, clear turquoise water, expansive resorts, boutique hotels, fine dining, and festive entertainment. With such a great destination, the Cancun Convention and Visitors Bureau was in need of a great marketing tool to pair with such a mecca of travel and tourism. Cancun found this tool in .travel.




The Cancun Convention and Visitors Bureau is the official entity that interacts with different markets around the world highlighting the many added values Cancun offers. With numerous other .com sites related to their popular destination, Cancun decided to make a statement: the official travel information source for Cancun is www.cancun.travel .


The Cancun CVB is pleased that people visiting www.cancun.travel know that the site is authenticated and offers the best Cancun information.


“Cancun recognizes the importance of the Internet for the tourism industry, that’s why our efforts are directed to promote our web page www.cancun.travel in all of our marketing campaigns,” said a Cancun Convention and Visitors Bureau representative.

Considering traveling to Costa Rica? Costa Rica Nature Escape has the deals!

Costa Rica Nature Escape has been a tour operator and travel agency since 1994. Its governmental license is OT-340, and it has earned level 3 CST for its sustainability efforts. Visit the wonders of Costa Rica, the country that encompasses 6% of the world's biodiversity. It is an ideal vacation spot for groups, families, couples, and individual travelers who are seeking close-to-nature experiences. Costa Rica offers a great variety of natural venues, more than 25% of its land and the majority of its waters are protected. Encounter a wide variety of forests, breathtaking flora and fauna, active volcanoes, and tropical beaches with warm sea water, always enhanced by the friendliness of the "ticos" (native Costa Ricans).



If you enjoy a little adventure, Costa Rica Nature Escape can arrange for adrenaline-filled tours on various levels and for all ages, like white water rafting, zip-lining, and more! As if starting up a business and marketing a new brand is not challenging enough on its own merits, doing it in a new top level domain name space adds its own share of trepidation along the way. When AURA Travel was an online start-up, it was set to revolutionize, commoditize, and standardize the holiday rentals by owner niche of the accommodation market, while providing an online platform that easily facilitates listing, search, and booking of holiday rental properties. The business name the company chose – AURA - has its own historical reasons and drives. This was only half of the challenge. Choosing an online domain name extension was the other half.


Because AURA was effectively launching a new online, unknown brand, the domain name extension in itself was considered a quintessential component of the brand. The popular TLDs (i.e., .com domain space) was not only saturated, but also somehow monotonously insignificant due its popularity.


Scouting the web for alternatives, AURA arrived at the .travel extension as a part of a number of domain name spaces offering specialization for different industry verticals. The .travel domain made sense instantly. This is what AURA’s new business was offering - accommodation for people who travel - for business, for pleasure, or for no reason at all. What it did, is what travelers needed, whether looking for a place to stay while in vacation around the globe, or booking a weekend escape a couple of hours’ drive away. As much as the domain name made sense, it was initially dismissed, because at the time it was too new and unknown. Let's face it, who is not scared of the unknown? Eventually, however, AURA came back to it and decided to launch its brand new business on a brand new domain name space that made sense to what it did.


The company was excited and full of start-up spirit. It was all new and starting from scratch, so why not give it a go? The company was no longer just AURA - it became aura.travel. Now the results speak for themselves. AURA considers its journey so far a great success and is looking forward to further expanding globally. The company will never give up its aura.travel identity for the world. AURA welcomes anyone who wishes to join them - property owners, travelers looking for accommodation, or industry peers wanting to improve the status quo.
