Do you travel much? Not, dash to a city, have a meeting, and eat at the hotel travel, but real travel. The kind where you spend days in one place, exploring a new city and eating new foods?
If you haven’t traveled like that in awhile, you may have forgotten how stressful it can be. Where do you go in a new city? What do you eat? More importantly, what do you avoid?
The guys at Inside Travel Guides feel ya, and they’re using local writers to produce guides for cities all over the world. Right now you can download guides for cities as diverse as New York, Paris, and Reykjavik.
