Want to get your mind blown? Watch this guy land a plane on a 57-story-high roof of a hotel in Dubai… 😱

Good morning and welcome back to Daily Drop, the newsletter that’s guaranteed to make you want to pack your bags and run away from all of life’s responsibilities… Or at least daydream about doing it. 😉

Today we’ve got some news, fun tournament voting, and travel inspo, so let’s get right to it:

  • 🏀 Travel Tournament Sweet 16

  • 🌍 Where in the World Wednesday

🏀 Travel Tournament Sweet 16

Welcome to our SWEET 16! And no, I’m not talking about the once-popular MTV show where billionaire dads would buy their daughters a Rolls-Royce and a private island for their 16th birthday 🤨 

Seriously, is that show still on?? ANYWAY…

The results are in for both the airlines and points programs that you guys selected, and I gotta say… I’m much more satisfied this time around 🥰

That round definitely earned a slow clap of approval for all involved, but now we’re back to the dirty work of elimination… From here on out, we’ll be pitting the options one against one!

✈️ Sponsored by Babbel

I have some GREAT news that we should all be happy about… Spring is officially here! 🎉🌷💚

We can finally shed our winter coats (my cat included… she’s doing lots of shedding 😒) and emerge from our long, cold, dark hibernation dens in order to get ready to travel our hearts out!

With all of the cool places to see out there in the world, I’d say it’s also probably a good idea (and really fun!) to start learning a new language.

That’s where Babbel can help!

Spring is totally a time to re-focus, clear out the brain cobwebs, and make moves to become your best self. If learning a new language has always been a goal, now is the perfect time to make that a reality.

Here’s why we love Babbel 🧡

  • Babbel teaches bite-sized, 10-minute, real-world-use lessons

  • You can also learn with Babbel’s podcasts, games, videos, content articles, and live online classes

  • Learners of all levels can use Babbel with its customized approach

  • You’ll learn about a country’s culture and traditions in addition to its language (we really like this meaningful focus)

  • Users report being able to start having basic conversations in their target language after just three weeks of daily practice with Babbel

AND BEST YET, for a limited time, you can get 55% off your subscription!

Just think, in as little as three weeks of using Babbel, you could start having some truly fun and practical conversations with locals at your next bucket-list destination!

There’s no better time to try Babbel, so don’t miss out on this awesome language-learning opportunity!

🌍 Where in the World Wednesday

We’re going to start sprinkling in a little bit of travel inspo into the newsletter each week 🤗

As you all know, we’ve got several masterminds behind the keyboard here at Daily Drop bringing you the best travel-hacking tips and news, but… where should you go with all that travel-hacking knowledge?! 🤔

Don’t worry. We’ve got some suggestions ☺️ Today, we’re heading to Helsinki, Finland! 🇫🇮

*Deals also available from MIA and JFK at similar prices.

FareDrop just gifted us an amazing roundtrip deal to get to Helsinki for only $378! I wonder how many Finnish cardamon buns I could get for that price… 🤔

If you’re thinking, “But… I don’t live in those cities to get this deal.” May I kindly turn your attention to revisit our newsletter that gushed all about the concept of positioning flights. Trust me, it’s a good one.

If Finland has been on your bucket list, and you’re able to find a cheap positioning flight to set you up for this killer deal departing from Baltimore… then problem solved, my friends 🥰 

Why You Should Go:

Well, for starters, Finland has ranked as the happiest country in the world (for five years in a row!) according to the World Happiness Report.

And they’re sooo happy about it that their tourism board is giving away a four-night stay at a resort with a happiness masterclass included to “find your inner Finn.” ☺️

You should also visit Finland for its incredible coffee culture (Finns have the highest consumption of coffee per capita in the world… probably why they’re so happy all the time.), friendly reindeer population, forward-thinking modern art and architecture, and the chance to catch a glimpse of the auroras.

But perhaps most importantly… not only can you find a great coffee roast here, but you can also roast in the very famous Finnish saunas. It’s even a UNESCO-protected activity because it’s such a big deal!

And hey, if you’re looking for a great travel credit card to take advantage of these FareDrop deals, consider this one (it’s one of our faves 🤗).

That’s gonna do it for today! I don’t know about you, but I’m seriously considering booking that Finland flight… I love Scandinavia, and Finland is one of the only countries in Europe I have yet to visit.

What did you think of our new “Where in the World” segment? Which destinations would you like to see featured? Let me know by replying to this email or reaching out on social media.

See you tomorrow,
