Travel Hack: How to Find Adventure & Save Money in the Process on Your Vacation! by Ingrid Echter
Next time when traveling, skip booking the tours and buying the travel guide. Just take your map to a local shop that you are visiting that sells postcards, but instead of buying them, take them to the counter and have the clerk mark the locations of the amazing sites from the cards onto your map instead. This way you:
- Get to design your trip based on the path and interests that make sense to you
- Discover places that you would not find by only following the guidebook
- Travel on your own time and terms to avoid the masses of tourists showing up at the same time
Plus, you get to send real or digital images of your own "postcards."
