Don't Always Use the Same Source
While many of us tend to use the same websites, blogs, or articles when planning our trips, I think that it is also helpful (depending on what kind of trip you are planning) to look outside your trusted resources and look up a different blog or website. As I was reading another travel blog (Nomadic Matt's Travel Site: Travel Better, Cheaper, Longer) I thought that he made some very valid points about traveling. When constantly referring to the same source (book, website, etc.) make sure you have the most current edition. Not only will it provide you with the most up-to-date information about what attractions are popular, which restaurants to eat at, and even bus or train times, but it will provide you with a general overview of information of the location you are going to visit. I recommend that if you want insider tips on "what's hot" in that location, to look in magazines, websites or blogs. Best of luck planning your next trip!
