2 posts | 3 read | 2 to read
An indispensable companion for rookie and veteran travelers alike that promises to revolutionize both how and why we vacation. By captivating millions during his six-year, fifty-country tenure as the New York Timess Frugal Traveler, Seth Kugel has become one of our most internationally beloved travel writers. While his famously unassuming journeys around the globe have forged a signature philosophy of whimsy and practicality, they have also revealed the seemingly infinite booby traps of on-the-grid tourism. In a book with widespread cultural reverberations, Kugel takes the modern travel industry to task, determined to reignite humanitys age-old sense of adventure that has virtually been vanquished by the spontaneity-obliterating likes of Google Maps, TripAdvisor, and Starwood points. Woven throughout with vivid tales of his perfectly imperfect adventures, Rediscovering Travel explainsoften hilariouslyhow to make the most of new digital technologies without being shackled to them. For the tight-belted tourist and the first-class flyer, the eager student and the comfort-seeking retiree, Kugel shows how we too can rediscover the joy of discovery.

I enjoyed the author's take on traveling and experiencing the countries you visit. While I didn't agree with everything he mentioned I do agree it can be better to go off the beaten path. I still think I could never go up to a stranger and talk to them/stay with them, especially as a woman, but sometimes I wish I could!
