I’m happy to report that I was a featured guest blogger today over at NileGuide, an excellent travel site with plenty of great resources for any traveler, including a very unique trip planning service, and one of the best travel blogs around.
My post actually appears on that blog today, and it is a piece I wrote on budget adventure travel, which I note in the article are three words that you don’t generally see next to one another. Lets face it, adventure travel can be very expensive, so using the term “budget” means that you have to qualify exactly what you mean by that. Still, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t deals to be had in the adventure travel space, and I give some tips on how to save some cash when planning a trip. I also happen to believe that you’ll be able to get some really great deals throughout the rest of this year and into next. The economy may finally be starting to turn around, but the majority of us aren’t starting to travel just quiet yet. That means good deals for those of us that are!
I’d like to thank NileGuide for inviting me to contribute to their great site. I had fun writing the piece and I am honored that they would invite me. If you’re not familiar with NileGuide, I highly recommend you go take a look. If you’re planning a trip soon, you definitely need to check out their system for creating your own travel guide, which allows you to customize it to your own liking, and for your personal itinerary, rather than buying a guide book from one of the big travel publishers, that is packed with pages on places you’ll never visit. NileGuide’s system is intuitive, easy to use, and provides lots of great info. As an example, check out their guide to Cusco, Peru for an idea of the service.
I hope everyone enjoys the article and finds something interesting and useful in it. 🙂
