Every year Lonely Planet comes up with a travel hotlist for the following year and they just released their picks for 2017. Looks like I beat the crowds having visited Colombia & Dominica (blog coming) this year and Nepal in 2011 (blog coming). I’ll also be on trend for next year with Ethiopia on the itinerary!
Lonely Planet is having a Valentines Day sale you will LOVE! Simply use promo code LOVETRAVEL from now until 16 Feb to get one free book or ebook for each one you buy. Ebooks are greener and easier to carry, I’ve been using them for years now – the pdf versions.
Good time to stock up on Lonely Planet books & ebooks as they have a 45% off “secret sale” which is not so secret anymore! I like the ebooks as they eliminate the need for a heavy book to carry around and don’t kill any trees.
I’ve been using Lonely Planet for over 30 years to help me plan my travels. In the 80’s it was the “Shoestring” guidebooks, in the 90’s their first online Thorntree was born and now into the 2000’s they have streamlined the once heavy guidebooks into downloadable pages and have a great little weekly newsletter that I subscribe to. I am really pleased to see them address eco-tourism and how to go about it in a responsible manner. This is something I talk about often but I have no where near the reach Lonely Planet does!
Birdwatchers and other species of traveller with a passion for watching wildlife are a breed apart. Millions of them migrate across the globe every year in the hope of a sighting, spending serious money as they go.
The thrill of seeing an animal, however fleetingly, in its natural habitat has turned wildlife tourism into a multi-billion dollar division of the travel industry.
For 48 hours, all Lonely Planet digital chapters are just a $1 (reg. $4.95).
Download guides on restaurants, attractions, hotels and more for your favorite travel destinations. I’ll be stocking up on Ecuador and Colombia for next year’s trip!
