One of the toughest things about choosing a travel experience is finding up to date resources the help you get organized and choose a destination. There are tons of thorough travel guides based on a wide variety of themes, from region to pet-friendliness. The trouble is, if the book isn't current, you might wind up still having a ton of unanswered questions or outdated information. The last thing you want when you're on vacation is an unexpected surprise, like a poorly calculated budget or planned excursion to a travel spot that's not currently open or under construction.
Planning out a vacation, especially abroad, requires current information on everything from costs to tourist-friendly locales. If you're basing your travel plans on a source that's thorough, but 15 years old, you might find yourself sorely disappointed.
