Travel Tips and Info

Check out this section for helpful travel tips, destination information and advice that might be useful for planning your next vacation.

I love to do research on the net, in magazines and books. I subscribe to multiple magazines (many of them travel-related), I constantly buy and borrow books and scan the Internet for interesting information. Here you will find an increasing number of travel-related tips and advice that will help you in working out your travel plans.

At a later point, this section will also feature travel advice from our readers who want to share their own travel knowledge.
