This might just be the strangest guide to ever be published by legendary travel guide company Lonely Planet and I have to say that I’m curious to check it out!

Lonely Planet ebook

When I purchase a travel guidebook, the overwhelming majority of the time, we go with Lonely Planet.

Besides guidebooks, Lonely Planet also publishes a variety of other travel-related books. I recently wrote about their just released Best in Travel 2016 book. They also picked the Top Sites in the World in the book Ultimate Travel. Continue reading Hot Deal: Any Lonely Planet eBook, $8.99 for Limited Time

For just about all of our international trips, Kim and I find a guidebook to be a necessary travel item.

Here is how I see it. Trips are an investment, whether it be paid for with our hard-earned money or miles & points. Being (somewhat) prepared and having ideas of what you’d like to see and do makes a lot of sense, especially if you’re away for a limited amount of time. You are paying all this money and or miles & points, why wouldn’t you spend an additional $20 or so to maximize what you see, do and eat… Continue reading Travel Guidebooks- Useful or Useless?
