What is the Future of Printed Guidebooks?

Posted on Sep 27, 2010

I love reading guidebooks and use them extensively in trip planning and while on the road. However, they are a pain to travel with since they are bulky and weighty. I am intrigued now by electronic media, both written and audio, as perhaps a solution to this printed guidebook issue.

We also crossed four borders overland, exchanged money between each and had to rely on our high school Spanish throughout, which made things take longer and resulted in some comedic situations. I couldn’t help feeling at one point in the trip, however, that maybe I was getting too old for this.
